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?


Ian fans should even be less optimistic!


His fans should cherish this cover page because this is as 'real' as it'll get. Where do I start on why's he's wrong.... looks middle aged, ken doll like, zero mystery or smouldering intensity. He looks hot in the photoshopped pics, less so when you see him on the screen. FSO...Glee!


Matt has the looks, talent, and sexiness to be CG. However,he's too classy for this role unless they get a good screenplay and director.


This fake cover was disprooved last month.


I think Matt would be a wonderful Christine, he is what u would expect Christine to be, sexy as all get out and got the attitude to go with it, but if not him then I would say Channing Tatum, ummmmm


Matt would be absolutely perfect. I don't care that he's gay, he is sexy as heck and fits the role beautifully!
Ian Somerhalder is my other choice,but I'm choose Matt.


Uhh what the heck is wrong with you guys? Yes I understand that people have their own opinions on who they want to be CG. But why change your mind just because Matt's gay? Really? How mature...seriously let me ask you guys, if you could define what a great actor means, what would you say? In my POV, a great actor is someone who can change roles and be someone else no matter what the role may be. Every actor can't just stay in one place and just be in a category that viewers label them to be. To be a great actor you must exceed your limit and step outside the box and Matt Bomer has astoundingly proven that point. I mean White Collar to Magic Mike. If he was Christian Grey, he's got everything ready. White Collar= CG's CEO side. Magic Mike= CG's secret side...if you know what I mean. ;) Just grow up and see what Matt Bomer has to offer, which is everything. :)


Matt Bomer is perfect for the role.. he has the style, charisma and looks of Christian Grey. I don't understand why him being gay is such an issue. If this was a high school student cut form the school play because he was gay the media would be quick to scold the school for such narrow minded beliefs. But because he's an professional actor and well known he has to have his sexuality discussed and scrutinized? No other job is allowed to even ask. few people are outraged if straight men play a gay man so this shouldn't be discussed. Judge him for being a good actor and not for being the gay actor, please. This issue is getting old and is forcing people to judge.. something we normally try to teach isn;t polite.


Matt Bomer is the only one who can be Christian flock, I can not imagine someone doing that character, is perfect


Matt Bomer is a bad choice for Christian Grey. Mr. Bomer has his place in White Collar, and is good in that role....I don't want to see him as the sex god, Christian Grey; I need to see whoever plays him as one who at least plays for the right team. I get that actors are there to "act" and that Bomer could do the role, he's undenyably handsome and talented. However, a big hurdle for me is the Christian Grey persona. I need to see Chris Hemsworth, or I'll even agree to Henry Cavill; both of whom are worthy of the role. P.S. Ian Somerhalder is too vertically chanllenged to play C.G.
