Matt Bomer as Christian Grey: First (Fake) Look!

by at . Comments

People's dreams of seeing Matt Bomer in Fifty Shades of Grey may still be realized, but this EW cover making the online rounds is nothing but a fake.

A pretty convincing, seductive fake!

The image, showing the White Collar star's blue eyes and flawless face, was leaked to the web with the headline "Fifty Shades of Grey: The Wait is Over" ...

Matt Bomer as Christian Grey

"Matt Bomer talks about changing the white collar for a grey tie," the fan-made cover continues, implying that Bomer locked down the role of Christian Grey.

Casting for the movie role of the mysterious billionaire with an affinity for bondage / S&M has become a spectator sport for fans of E.L. James' bestseller.

Filmmakers confirm that Bomer's casting is just wishful thinking, though.

Dana Brunetti, one of the co-producers of the big screen adaptation, said on Twitter: "All of the rumors on #FiftyShades are just that - rumors. No one has been cast in any role."

"We have to get a writer and director first."

Bomer has been a fan favorite for Grey for a while now, but Bret Easton Ellis (who made no secret of wanting to adapt the saga before being dropped from consideration), said the notion of casting openly gay Bomer is ludicrous.

You tell us: Would Matt Bomer be a good Christian Grey?


please please please he is so perfect for the part he is exactly what you picture when you think of christian gry! hot and sexy and could get you to do anything!




Yes absolutely Matt Bomer for Chrisitan Gray he is perfect for the role.


Matt Bomer in my opinion, optimimizes Christian Grey. He is what i imagined when i read the books, he's a well put together character, sexy as hell, mysterious, dangerous, rich and sophisticated. I do not think Ian Somerhalder would be a good choice at all, he is far to full of himself, and lacks the sophistication. A female lead also needs to be innocent or have that persona, someone such as Alexis Bledel or Alexandra Daddario.


yessss, Matt is the PERFECT Christian. Matt & Alexis all the way.


are they realy making this film? and if so matt bomer is great for the part im so exsited, i hope they make the books into a film !


Matt Bomer IS Christian Grey. No it doesn't bother me that he's gay -- he is PERFECT for the part and as a ACTOR, it's all about the FANTASY anyway!!!!!!!!


'50 Shades of Drek.' I truly hope he drops the 10-foot pole and runs away - fast! Bomer is a far better actor than to be associated with romance schlock fairy-dusted by granny S&M. Twitards think they've grown up, because of this crappy, crappy crap.


'Women' obsessing over a man that wouldn't give them a first much less second glance. Not me for sure. He doesn't stand a chance, he's a socks and sandals kind of guy.


Matt would be awesome as Christian! When I first laid eyes on him, it took my breath away! I knew that was Christian! Hope he gets the part.
