Ian Somerhalder to Fans: Chill Out With 50 Shades of Grey Talk!

by at . Comments
Ian Somerhalder has whipped his own fan base into a frenzy by lobbying for the role of Christian in the coming film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. Ian Somerhalder Sunglasses

Having created a monster, he's now seeking to calm the masses.

The Vampire Diaries hunk took to his Twitter to refute reports that he is "desperate" to portray Christian Grey, and to quell critics of his potential casting.

Ian Somerhalder Tweeting

Somerhalder, 33, has been frequently talked about as a possible Christian not only due to his physical appearance, but his sexy, approachable demeanor.

Last week, he seemed to be full-on pushing for the Fifty Shades of Grey part, Tweeting at writer Bret Easton Ellis that he'd love Ellis to write the script for him.

He's taking a step back now, however, saying he's not desperate, probably won't get asked to audition anyway, and urging fans to relax either way.

Other potentially Christian Greys talked about in fan circles include Matt Bomer, Alex Pettyfer, Ryan Phillippe and of course Robert Pattinson.

Lucy Hale recently lobbied for Ian ... to star alongside herself.

Your take: Ian in 50 Shades?

I think that Ian Somerhalder would absolutely be the most perfect Christian Grey, in Fifty Shades Of Grey. He is Hot and very Striking features. His eyes are so Mesmerising..... I couldn't think of anyone else that could be the perfect Christan Grey but Ian. That's my opinion, and I sticking to it!

Ian would be PERFECT to play Christian Grey. I've been obsessed with him since the first showing of Vampire Diaries. Which in that show he is madly in love with a shy Brunette girl... And he also plays the bad boy in this show. Amazingly I might add. He's beyond sexy, has the intense grey eyes that are depicted in the book many times, and is great at playing bad boy, and a love struck lost boy. PERFECT.

From the moment I started reading the book all I could picture was Ian. I didn't even know there might be a movie at first. I really hope he gets the roll. He seems the absolute perfect fit to me!

I think he or Alexander skarsgard would be perfect. If you've seen true blood you'll know what I'm talking about. He gazes a lot and it could hold someone in their place! And in true blood he gets naked....a lot. He also plays a part in season 4 where he has to add a lot of boyishness to his character . He gets a sly little grin!!! He'd be awesome. So my vote is on Alexander skarsgard

Ian is too dark for this role. EL James describes Christian Grey as having gorgeaous eyes and lighter colored hair. Ian is hot but not with lighter hair!

Okay, i understand that people are hating that there guy isn't getting the part, but according to the polls a majority of the people do, and some people like i just did might get the wrong idea when they read messages, because i voted for you Ian, and i got offended because it felt like you weren't appreciative of all the support you were getting. He is my first and only choice for this role and he needs to watch what he says because its little comments like that, that could make his fans turn on him...
