Stephen Amell: Out of Fifty Shades of Grey Movie After Reading Book?

by at . Comments

Based on a couple of recent comments he made, Arrow star Stephen Amell is reportedly out of the running for the lead role in Fifty Shades of Grey.

Earlier this spring, the Canadian heart throb had more than a few hearts aflutter when he confirmed he “had a meeting” about starring in the film.

He's singing a different tune now, however.

“Was on a flight back to LA with no movie, so I grabbed Fifty Shades of Grey and burned through it,” the actor, 32, wrote on Facebook last week.

Apparently he was not impressed.

“Umm ... I hope they get the movie made, and I’m sure someone will be excellent in it. [But] that person will not be me,” Stephen Amell added.

So did he just take himself out of contention for a major film role he was under fairly serious consideration for? That's the implication, right?

The writing is beyond terrible, so it's not surprising he'd have such a visceral reaction. Still, if he were offered a part that huge, would he really pass?

Only time will tell.

But for now, THGers, YOU tell us who should play Christian Grey and who should play Anastasia Steele in the upcoming 50 Shades of Grey movie?
