There are many strong candidates for the role of Christian Grey in the upcoming film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, but two have really piqued our interest.

Ian is the whole package. There is no ChristIAN without IAN!


Christian has to Ian. I am reading the last book and from the very beginning of book 1 I thought it should be Ian. It is all in the eyes.


It has to be Ian. I read the trilogy and as soon as I read the description of Christian I instantly pictured Ian!!! If he doesn't play Christian I know LOTS of women who will NOT be watching that movie!!!!

@ ecp

I agree, I even have friends who refuse to watch if Ian is not cast lol.


his smile makes me smile... he has such a beautiful smile and the twinkle in those gorgeous misty gray blue eyes when he does.... i wish we could clone him
Stephen no contest!


Stephen Smell all the way. He can definitely pull off the serious look but when you see him smile his whole face lights up, especially his eyes, and he looks like a completely different person. No offence to Ian, he's great, but I want wow, so I can watch this/these movie over and over again.


These guys areOk? However, I truely think Josh Groban would make a betyer Christian Gray


Ian would make a good Christian...but really I think if there was a movie made he would be Gideon from the Crossfire series by Sylvia Day :D


Ian no contest!

Where did stephan amell come from anyway... one name that has been there from the beginning till now has been ian somerhalder... people who are wishing for actors have come and gone but only ian has stuck through which shows HE IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT FOR THE ROLE!
