"If only Brad Pitt was still young, it could totally be him...Remember him in Meet Joe Black? That would have been a perfect Christian Grey!" - Slgr205

Ian Somerhalder for Christian , i really think he should he is super hot :) and i also think Emma Watson should be anastasia :) ,
Jul 10, 2012 9:14AM
I would pick Ian Somerholder for Christian and Chyler Leigh for Ana!! All the way!

emma watson for anastasia, she has the perfect innocence and would be able to pull off "beautiful but doesnt know it" ....Ian Somerhalder for Christian..hes soo beautiful and down right naughty, plus he owns the powerful look!

One way to guarantee me NOT seeing the movie would be to have Kristen Stewart. Matt Bomer would be great, he could totally pass for 27 years old!

Ian Somerhaulder needs to be casted

Matt Bomer IS Christian Grey!! How can anyone not see that? ;)

Ian Somerhalder can't be beat for Christian.  Soooooo gorgeous!

I think 2 unknown actors makes the most sense in that it pays homage to this automatic bestseller that came out of nowhere & captured readers the world over. Christian Grey is a different image to every reader as is Anastasia...the roles should not be filled by high profile actors. Definitely chemistry between the 2 actors is a must but should be as electric as depicted in the book. So many great novels that became movies have bombed due to trying to rewrite the book in movie word...& mistakenly casting well knowns....such as Clint Eastwood in the mega-seller Bridges of Madison County which also had Meryl Streep as actress...she was great but an unknown as the male leader would have been more complimentary to her & more romantic. Shades is about so many things but romance is the subtle thread that weaves it way through the course of the story...

In closing....this movie should not deviate from the book too much with 'creative' license in changing scenes from the book. The book that was written has more than proved itself...can't beat that!

Thank you

Yes, Bradley cooper for Christian!!!!

Honestly, Christian Grey is suppose to be a big shot CEO, if anyone watched an episode of White Collar, there would be no argument for Matt Bomer. He is sex on a stick in a suit, can pull of the age, has that amazing hair, childish smile, smouldering eyes, has intimidating looks and so much more. 

MATT BOMER screams Christian Grey.

It would be creepy to have Selena Gomez play Ana. She looks way too young. I would feel sick seeing her do the things in the book. You need a young women but a women that does not look like a child. Yuk

I saw Christian Bale as Christian Grey while reading....he soooo fits the bill!


Jul 10, 2012 9:27AM

Matt Bomer and Emma Stone or Emma Watson would be perfect.


Jul 10, 2012 9:44PM
yes Alexander would be most perfect :) he is the only true mysterious, sexy, seductive, powerful controlling, strong, gentle m****x is all MAN.
Jul 10, 2012 10:24PM
IAN IAN IAN - thats the only way I would ever go to see that movie - heck he doesn't even have to speak, just stand there and look at the screen ;) I'll still pay

This novel is poorly written, nothing more than a trashy hyped up Harlequin type book. Can't believe the press it's getting.

These two are perfect! Cast them and make the movie!
Anne Hathaway and Ian Somerhalder!!!
Perfect age and look!
