Should Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder Star in 50 Shades of Grey?

by at . Comments

Nina Dobrev hasn't read Fifty Shades of Grey yet, but with her name floating around as a possible fit for the female lead, she might want to get on it!

"All I've heard is that it's very scandalous, to say the least," the Vampire Diaries starlet told MTV. "I haven't read it, but I'm intrigued ... who knows?"

"I mean, well, I guess we'll have to see."

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder

With co-star and real-life boyfriend Ian Somerhalder expressing interest in the role of Christian Grey, it's no surprise Dobrev has been linked to Anastasia Steele.

Working with Ian a second time isn't as appealing to Nina as you night think, though. She said if she did play Anastasia, she'd prefer another guy.

"I don't know if that's a good idea," she said of herself and Somerhalder both starring in the movie adaptation of EL James' erotic love story trilogy.

"I think it's best for any of the actors on The Vampire Diaries to kind of do their own things ... and create new characters ... if it's the same people, the fans will alway see me as Elena and they'll see him as Damon if we do a film together."

"I think it would be better [if] either he should get it or I should get it, but I know that apparently he's really great for the role, so I hope he gets it!"

Another pair of famous vampires, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, have been talked about at length as good fits, especially considering that James initially modeled the books after Edward and Bella from the Twilight saga.

Who should play Christian:


Nina Dobrev is ideal for the role of Anastasia Steele; she's kindda shy, quirky, with a dash of clumsy, stunningly beautiful, bangin' bod and like Katherine Kavansay, "T
Ian Somerhalder are one of my FAVE actors ever, but I honestly can't see him as Christian.
That guy from Superman, or Chris Hemsworth. They look like they'd enjoy a little BDSM! Aha!


i think nina dobrev should play be steele. when i started to read the book i pictured her. and she has quite a dirty kinky look to her :) i think paul wesly shoud play mr gray he soo hot and has a body to suit the part and i would love to see him in control hes so HOT


Nina dobrev and ian is perfect.2 choice may be alex pettifer and alxendra daddrio.


I honestly don't see Kristen Stewart as a good Ana...I can see her being Leila maybe but not Ana. They would need to find someone that would be completely comfortable with some of the things that would be requested of her. Honestly I see Kristen as a submissive character--like Leila.


Matthew McConaughey would make the PERFECT Christian Grey....He has the looks and the perfect hair for the part!!!!!!!!!!!!


Henry Cavill IS Christian Grey! His Dunhill ads on you tube says it all & scream FIFTY! He has the right look,body,eyes & that boyish smile. He is the right age at 28 & his role in Tudors has shown that he can be seductive domineering,playful & has no problem with the steamy scenes whatsoever. As for Ana my 1st choice is Alexandra Daddario from Percy Jackson & white Collar. She has the long brown hair,big blue eye,alabaster skin & at 26 she can play 22 & still be mature enough to play ANA as she grows emotionally & sexually & then becoming a mother. My 2nd choice is Lindsey Fonseca of Nikita who has similar features then Lucy Hale but she has big GREEN eyes.


i hope it will be ian somerhalder for christian and kristen stewart for ana steele for a change kristen fits the character and discription of ana


omg ian is perfect for the role i love him so much please choos him please !!!




Please NOT Kristen Stewert!! That would just ruin it. I like her in the Twilight Series but she needs to stay out of this. I really like the idea of Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder playing the parts though. I find they fit the roles well, and look great together.
