Ian Somerhalder Interested in 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Film!

Ian Somerhalder Interested in 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Film!

Ian Somerhalder blows a kiss to the camera while entering the Fred Segal store on Monday (April 23) in West Hollywood, Calif.

Earlier in the day, the 33-year-old Vampire Diaries star grabbed some food and noshed on his way into the clothing boutique!

That morning, Ian stopped by Ryan Seacrest‘s show, where the host asked him about a potential interest in starring in the cinematic version of the novel “Fifty Shades of Grey”.

“I absolutely would be up for that… Absolutely. That would be a pretty incredible thing. And hopefully that could pan out, I think” Ian said of playing the leading role of Christian Grey.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE Ian Somerhalder star in “Fifty Shades of Grey”??

I think he’d suit it, he’s got the whole smoldering look down, and his eyes are amazing! And he’d be great at the whole ‘dark’ side of Christian.
He might be a few years too old though, I’m not sure how the casting people are doing it, unfortunately I heard they’re trying to cast unknowns…but that could be a rumor

I love you so so much Ian, but please….TAKE OFF THE HAT D:

# 3

No…not as Christian…please don’t ruin the book.

# 4

yeah..what’s with the hats recently..

# 5

Omg!! He’d be perfect!! Way better then nasty Robert Patterson!!

# 6

Fedora – check.
Creepy smirk – check.

No thanks.

# 7

NO he wouldn’t suit it. Get a proper actor that actually looks like a man — christian bale perhaps.

# 8

@lold: Thank you! He might be good looking but he is certainly not attractive. He’s creepy.

I read Fifty Shades and LOVED IT. However, this is going to be a major movie not TV. I’m sure that Ian has alot of younger 12-16 and possibly older fans. But this movie has to be an actor who can act. Ian is known for being hot. I’ve seen the show he’s on and it’s a good show but his acting is well, just not great enough for this book turned movie. Sorry. I want to see someone like Chris Pine or Orlando Bloom or Ryan Gosslin. They are incredibly gorgeous men who are great actors.

GARRETT HEDLUND IS THE PERFECT CHRISTIAN GREY

His chance in film flopped a few years ago., he’s a CW guy. This role needs a real actor like Bomer or Cavill!

@BEAN: Forgot about Christian. He would be EXCELLENT

I think they could’ve DEFINITELY picked a more flattering picture of the guy considering what the topic is about… and he is an extremely attractive guy so it couldn’t have been that hard :-/

Theo James hands down. Under thirty, Coppered colored hair,Tall,Sexy,Deep voice,Beautiful smile,and looks awesome onscreen lovemaking.

No thanks, that would totally ruin the book for me. You need someone sexy and confident and commanding, not Ian.

Read a bit of this book online….dialogue was terrible. Very poorly written. Bad fanfic meets p0rn. Just that one excerpt showed what drivel the book is.

People know that Fifty was a Twilight fanfiction called Master of the Universe, right? It was hugely popular in the Twilight fandom, and “Christian” is actually Edward…and yada yada? I feel like more people should know this. Twilight fanfic fans, and there are MANY, read this for free two years ago.

@Dream on: Henry Cavill or Matt Bomer would be perfect but they both are booked with new major movie roles with premium directors plus TV for Matt so doubt they would have time. Good backup is Garrett Hedlund!

I really Love the book . Don’t get me wrong i love Ian I’m just not sure about him playing Christian. I was thinking more along the lines of Michael Fassbender , Chris Pine or Matt Bomer. Because it has to be someone Hot but a good actor as well . Ian is just Pretty to look at .

Garrett hedlund would be the best!!!! He is f*ing sexy!!!

Fassbender and bomer are too old

@Sharon: I’m in my late 30s and have quite a few friends in that age range who watch TVD and adore Ian Somerhalder and think he’s mighty fine. You forget Ian was on Lost also, so he has fans in the 30-40 range aplenty. As for your picks, it’s subjective. I think Chris Pine is okay, and Ryan Reynolds does absolutely nothing for me. And as someone who’s watched ALL of Ian’s acting, I find him a better actor than all three of your choices (even Orlando, whom I love).

No way. he even kisses with that weird side smirk.

I sincerely hope that the casting powers that be decide to cast an UNKNOWN actor as Christian Grey. As a big fan of the books, I’d like to be able to walk into a movie theater and look at the screen and only think “Fifty/Christian”, not Ian, or Damon, or Ryan, or Robert, or Alex or any other famous actor who is being considered for the role. I’m hoping for a blank slate, a guy who can just be Christian Grey.

@Aestas: I totally agree with you here; some fresh blood would be great!
