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?


If he's not casted I won't see the movie. From the moment Christian was described Matt Bomber popped into my head. He is hands down Christian Grey. It's like E.L James saw him and then put him down as Grey. He has thecDeamnor looks sexy in a suite looks just like Christian should and he has that dark edgy side. I'm def. voting for him.


Matt is beautiful, perfect as Christan, the camera loves him. He is so balanced in face and body type, not over the top musclemania ... but fit .... and brooding ... he has my vote ... he is an actor. Let him act ...


Matt Bomer is not to old Christian Grey is 27-28 yrs old and Matt Bomer is only 31 its only a four year difference. He also plays a straight guy in white collar so what's the problem.


Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel, hands down. Alexis has this innocent beautiful look to her and she's got lovely brunette hair, young enough. Matt: He's successful, got amazing eyes and he looks amazing in suit. I think his role in the movie would be quite convincing. We all know how good he is in (White Collar)


I don't think it matters that Matt looks a bit older, it's not that bad. He looks successful and great in a suit, plus it shouldn't matter if he's a little older. He's successful, troubled and he's serious, he should LOOK a bit older than his years.


To all those people who voted that he wouldn't make a good Christian Grey because he was gay, shame on you. You're so lousy you know? You don't hear any gay people complaining when straight people act as homosexuals in movies. I think it's ridiculous to attach such things to their career. You're so narrow minded, just open up please. He's a good actor and I'm sure he'll do a good job in convincing you.


i agree with Elizabeth and Bianca, his personal life has got nothing to do with his acting. he would be a great Christian Gay and because he is a great actor i think he will pull off the role quite well. he is just perfect


cant wait he will b amazig


I think Matt Bomer would be a perfect Christan Grey. It doesn't matter if he is gay. For years there were many actors who were gay and no one ever knew it. There are many gay actors who portray striaght roles. He is an actor he can pull of the sexual and romantic role.


Let's not forget that Christian is only in his twenties. Matt Bomer is gorgeous but he's too old for Christian.
