It's still to be determined who will play Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie, but it's reportedly become clear who will not be cast:

Ian Somerhalder and Garrett Hedlund are both out of the running, according to insiders, along with Stephen Amell, narrowing the list of candidates.

Hedlund, 28, was reportedly approached about playing the S&M-obsessed lead in the film version of E.L. James' erotic novel, but turned it down.

"Doing a possible trilogy was too big a commitment, and producers wouldn't let him do just one film," says the source of Kirsten Dunst's boyfriend.

Ian Somerhalder, 34, is out too - though he openly coveted the part.

Another day, yet another fun Fifty Shades of Grey movie cast rumor.

Only this time, it's less of a rumor and more a fan's fantasy casting.

Today's answer to the age-old question of who should play Christian Grey is Garrett Hedlund ... at least as far as this unofficial 50 Shades trailer is concerned.

Can you see the actor (Country Strong, On the Road, Tron) in the role?

We've seen tons of other fan-made trailers (such as this one lobbying for Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel), but this is the first we know of to feature Hedlund.

Or a woman's moaning interwoven with the music of White Zombie.

We are reportedly down to three for the role of Finnick Odair.

With Robert Pattinson (thankfully) out of the running for this key Catching Fire character, E! News claims producers have narrowed their choices down to the following trio:

  1. Taylor Kitsch: Beloved Friday Night Lights star who anchored two of the biggest flops in Hollywood history, John Carter and Battleship.
  2. Armie Hammer: Oscar nominee and upcoming Lone Ranger opposite Johnny Depp as Tonto.
  3. Garrett Hedlund: Starring opposite Kristen Stewart in On the Road.

E! also claims The Hunger Games sequel might go with a relative nobody for Finnick, who is a former winner of the story's annual competition and possesses both a ridiculously amazing body and a cocky personality.

Which of these actors would be best suited for the part?

And the Winner is?

Looks like Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal are hitting it off ... with other people! The former was seen on a hot date with Garrett Hedlund, reports say.

"It was their first time going out," a source tells Us Weekly of Swift's April 1 evening out in Nashville with the Tron: Legacy and Country Strong star.

"They've been emailing for a while, and she hinted they should get together."

Sources say that despite an obviously strong connection, Taylor is taking things slowly after a fast-track romance and breakup with Jake Gyllenhaal last fall.

Speaking of Jake, he's been spotted out with 90210 star Jessica Lowndes. Yeah, the chick stuck playing Adrianna on the CW's mediocre remake of the hit.

As long as they're both happy. Too bad Jay Leno didn't ask Taylor about this during her visit last night. Probably would've resulted in more blank stares.

Our above headline is possibly a little unfair to Miley Cyrus, but when actor Garrett Hedlund is seen on video smoking an unconventional-looking cigarette, which he INSISTS is not weed, on the street in Montreal, then, well ...

The video was shot in August, when Hedlund - who also stars in Tron: Legacy and Country Strong - was filming On The Road with Kristen Stewart.

As you can see, Hedlund pulls a lighter and a "cigarette" out of his pocket, lights it, takes two drags and passes it to some girl who happily partakes.

It could be any number of legal substances, yes, but you have to wonder ... and it's hard not to draw comparisons to the Miley Cyrus bong video.

Hedlund's rep did not default to salvia, but told TMZ it was surely NOT marijuana, adding, "He would never smoke pot in front of all the paparazzi."

What do you think? We can already hear Mila Kunis' take ... totally weed!
