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?

Matt Bomer is PERFECT to play the role of Christian Grey! No one else suits this part but Matt Bomer. He MUST be chosen!

Height will not be the decision making factor when it comes to casting. CG has more distinctive qualities that must be met. Bomer "fits the profile" of CG when he's wearing a suit tapping on his laptop. He has very little to bring to the role in other respects.

Matt Bomer is 5:11 I have had my picture with him. Tim DeKay is 6:2, Matt is perfect. The short one is Ian at 5:9.

Robert Pattinson would be purrrfect as Christian Grey....he has that wonderful brooding look about him.

Matt Bomer WOULD BE A HORRIBLE CHRISTIAN GREY. HE'S TOO OLD AND TOO SHORT. Grey has to be in his twenties. By the third movie, Bomer would look more like his father. Also, on White Collar they have to shoot weird angles to hid his height. Next to Peter he looks like a hobbit. It's why he's usually wearing a hat. Google most pictures and someone's usually sitting or positioned so you can't see how short he is.

@Tilda Of all the possible contenders you choose to target Ian, believing he must be my choice for CG. I've noticed fans of Bomer are inclined to do this. Clearly you lot see him as your guys biggest competition. All I can say his sorry to Ian and his fans. I'm in a good mood, would you like to try again. lol
