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?


Matt Bomer would make the best Christian Grey!! Alexis Bledel should be Ana, Channing should play Elliot & Blake Lively as Kate. Sharon Stone would be great as Ms. Robinson.


Amber Seyfried is Ana! All they have to do is darken her hair.


I'm sorry but the only ones good enough for this roll are Matt Bomer and Ian sommerhalder!!!, In that other, I love Channing, he's super super hot, but he is not Mr Grey !!!!


Matt Bomer is Christian Grey!!!!! I think Anna Kendrick would make a great Ana!!!


I think everyone should take a minute and check out this new cat named Jessie pavelka...he's newer and believe me, if you see him you will say Channing who? He's perfect for the role.. face, body etc!


Hes cute but . . . . NOT Christian Gray handsome! No way Jose! Heck, he has terrible teeth! Not the teeth of a billionaire!


My vote is for Gabriel Macht!! HOT!!


have red all the books n he just looks the part so handsome


Ian sommerhalder is definetly my favourite !
