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?


Ian Somerhalder. Enough said.


Please Please Please James Scott for Christian and Alexis Bledel would make a great Ana


Channing is hot, but no Mr Grey. Emma Watson is definetly no Ana. I think maybe Ashley Greene. Matt Bomer for sure


Alexander skarkgard Eric from true blood. He has it all and so could pull the part off so well. Mr grey is dark and Alex would be perfect as for the role of ana u need a girl that's natural pretty. It's gotta be Zooey duchenell she would be the perfect ana .


Jessie Pavelka is the ONLY choice for Christian he is super hot and the role doesn't have to be played by some big name. Jessie really looks the part and this could really skyrocket his career. Channing Tatum eh I guess if Jessie doesn't get it he would be better than the vampire guys and goodness forbid Ryan Gosling yuck. Check this out :)


Umm...hell to the no! There is nothing dark about Channing Tatum...he looks way too much like a momma's boy! Ian Somerhalder please!


Emmy Rossum is my choice for Ana!


I think his wife could fit ANA perfect and they would def have the chemistry!!!!


Hell no! Chace Crawford or Chris Hemsworth please!!!!!!!!!


Ian Somerhalder! He has everything beautiful teeth a smile to die for smouldering looks Chaning is beautiful but, No not this one babe. You stick to stripping and dancing xx
