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.

What do you think? Tell us who should play Christian and Anastasia in 50 Shades of Grey by voting in our dueling surveys below!

Who should play Christian:


I agree with Tammy...Chris Pine would be amazing.


If not Ian Somerhalder for Christian then my vote is for Chris Pine...the eyes say it all and Chris Pine has em!!!!


I love Ian Somerhalder too much, that's why I don't want him to do it, lol.


I only read the books picturing Armie Hammer.


Kristen Stewart is all hype has made her money let her go. I do like watching Megan fox on screen very easy on the eyes and Ryan gosling would be a good costar


I'd love to see Alexis Bledel as Ana...she'd be the perfect choice.
For christian there is no perfect actor. ian Somerhalder is to short, and all others would be a terrible fit. I hope they find a fresh face


Totally agree with the last comment for Matt Bomer and Bella Heathcote, they're both skilled and I can really imagine them portraying those characters. The only popular actor I can think of to play Christian is Henry Cavill, physically he's perfect and he was outstanding in the tudors.


I all know is this movie better not be PG-13 and I agree there should be fresh faces as the leads. I also agree Ian Somerhalder is very yummy, but it's all about that on screen chemistry. This choice has to be perfection.


It would be nice to see a 'Fresh' face playing "Christian Grey". Not someone of a 'big' status name. I'm sure Ian Somerhalder is flattered by the many who thinks he should play "Christian". I'm sorry, but Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are so far fitted for these types of characters. I can't even believe their names are above to even be voted for!


Kristin Stewart is a terrible actress, and is the reason the Twilight movies are 1000% more terrible than the books. In every single movie she's in, she is the same. Same facial expressions and everything. I cannot believe she's on the ballot, regardless of the characters and story that this one is modeled after. I have read the books, and she would be a terrible fit for the role.
