Channing Tatum: Open to Fifty Shades of Grey Role! Sort Of!

by at . Comments

Channing Tatum has thrown his well-chiseled abs and buns of steel hat into the Fifty Shades of Grey ring.

Sort of.

Asked during a Glamour-sponsored Twitter Q&A with fans this week about the main role of Christian Grey in that upcoming big screen adaption, the Magic Mike star simply said YES, he'd be open to the role...

... but he added a caveat:

"I'd only be allowed if my wife was Ana. She’s read the books so I don’t think she’d be impressed if she couldn’t be Ana!”

Tatum is married to actress Jenna Dewan. But she might need to get in line behind Emma Watson, who is reportedly a leading candidate for the character of Anastasia Steele.

Other actors that have expressed interest in portraying Christian include Ian Somerhalder, Ryan Gosling, and Alexander Skarsgard.

Would you want to see Tatum in this sexy role?


Channing Tatum all the way, in the books Mr. Grey is beautiful, Channing is beautiful. I don't think Jenna-his wife- should play Ana. Mainly because, she is gorgeous, and I just don't portray Ana as a supermodel gorgeous woman. Canning is an actor, she knew that when she married him. Let him do his job....pppaleasee!


Ian Somerhalder in the only perfect guy for MRR..GREYYY


Ryan phillipe as Christian grey!!!!!


IAN Somerhalder is a perfect MR. Grey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I think Channing would make a perfect Christian Grey, i dont think Jenna should play Ana.


Definately CHANNING TATUM is Christian Grey.. every time i read the book i see channing as Mr.Grey and Anastasia Steel as Jenna Dewan..
I would love to see Channing and Jenna in the movie..


Matt Bomer from White Collar would be perfect. He's hot and sooo sexy


JAMES SCOTT a.k.a as EJ Dimera oh heck yea:) what a great idea.


i knoow i've invested too much of my time into this but i really do believe that with the right acting alex pettyfer can play christian.He has right look but needs to really get some acting classes.As for innocent ana the girl from gilmore girls alexis bledel she's perfect.The blond chic from gossip girl blakely what ever her name is could play kate her best friend.Guess who would be perfect for mrs. robinson?Angelina jolie you got too admit she is the perfect mrs robinson.


All the girls at work when we started talking about a movie first ator we thought of was Channing Tatum. He fits the imagination of what Christian looks like perfectly.
