Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder: 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Co-Stars?

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder make separate entrances into their hotel on Monday (May 14) in New York City.

The Vampire Diaries costars and real-life couple both kept a low profile in sunglasses.

In a recent interview with MTV, Nina discussed the possibility of working with Ian on the upcoming adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

“I think it would be better [if] either he should get it or I should get it,” Nina said. “I know that apparently he’s really great for the role, so I hope that he gets it.”

FYI: Nina is wearing Dylan George jeans and a Linea Pelle Collection bag.

    NO! NO NO NO NO !!

    Why does he want this role so much? He’s not right for it at all!

    Nina looks lovely. Very classy and pretty. Her and Ian make a beautiful couple.

    bb Says:

    I think nina would be good. Don’t really think Ian is right for it and I don’t think Michael fasteners should play him either.

    I think Gabriel Macht would be perfect!

    seriously? Says:

    The book is awful why would anyone want to be in it? why the hell is it even going to be a movie?…..And why does Nina use the word ”should” no you should not get the role you’re both mediocre actors

    Jen Says:

    This movie is going to be a joke. Whoever gets these parts are going to have their careers ruined. And I agree the book is horrible. Its almost worst than Twilight. Everyone thinks this is going to be some artsy piece of cinema but its really just coing to be C Level Trash.

    Scarlett Says:

    How about neither of them gets cast in the film? Christian is a redhead head and Ana is supposed to be plain and Nina does not personify that at all, sorry. I didn’t like her on Degrassi and I don’t like her on TVD. As much as I love Ian and think he’s a great vampire on TVD, “Fifty Shades” has nothing to do with vamp.

    CLu Says:

    Thank god I’m not the only who thinks that either of these two doing ’50 Shades’ would be a disaster. Neither of them fit the roles, it would be horrible!

    dwald Says:

    chris pine should get the role he’s got christian’s cooper red hair and his eyes are so blue almost kinda grey plus he’s got the whole arrgont thing down pat without being Ian douche. If Ian gets it he’ll just be play Damon without the vampire tricks…

    Lisa Says:

    Ian is too short to play Christian Grey—he’s only 5’9. Don’t know what girl would want to be in this movie, good for Nina for not wanting to

  11. 11
    K Says:

    I think Ian could pull it off–but I wouldn’t consider Nina for the Anastasia role.

    Matt Cohen should be considered for the role as Christian, too.

    jamie Says:

    Is this a JOKE? They are NOT big enough to carry a MOVIE. NO NO NO NO NO. They can stay on that cw show. NO NO NO. btw how funny that Nina is wearing the sunglasses pretending she doesn’t want her picture taken. Come on Nina anyone who knows you, knows you LOVE to have it taken.

    Sam Says:

    This will be a stupid movie no matter who gets cast because it is based on a stupid book.

    sarah Says:

    When I read Fifty Shades of Grey, for some reason I pictured Colin Egglesfield as Christian Grey. Does anyone else think this? Look him up, he is gorgeous! Btw I’m a big fan of Ian and Nina, but I just think Colin Egglesfield could be a better CG. :)

  15. 15
    Saskia Says:

    Ian definitely has the LOOK to play Christian Grey! (smoldering, intense gaze,incredible hot….) but the books are so poorly written, imo! Ian is a really talented actor and I hope he will do a great movie soon! <3

    Stacie Says:

    Love the book but if EITHER ONE OF THEM is in this Movie I will NOT see it . Nina is Not a good actress, Ian is pretty to look at but he too can Not act is way out of a paper bag . Just No, NO,NO,NO that this role not this movie .

    lillie Says:

    Well for a start Nina can’t act for a start and Ian just doesn’t look the part. no blonde hair or full lips!
    next casting please…….

    Susanna Says:

    Oh NO not Nina please….don’t like her acting at all! :( We need someone cute and not as fake as her!

    Ian is gorgeous and a great actor….I’d love to see him on the big screen!

    Muffin Man! Says:

    nina is wayyyyyyyy to pretty to play anastasia from 50 shades anastasia is attractive yes but not in the beauty of nina well thats what i got from the books anyway and also her body is to curvy to play ana if they are going to do this movie which i think they shouldn’t but since they are they should do it exactly like the books characters

  20. 20
    Muffin Man! Says:

    @lillie: who the hell has blonde hair and full lips out of anastasia and christian they are both dark haired in the book

  21. 21
    danny Says:

    @Muffin Man!: Nina is not a good actress! There are prettier and more talented girls out there!

    Ian could pull it off but the books are like porn…and as much as I want to see Ian shirtless etc. I don’t think it would be good for him!

    Lacy Says:

    I think Ian would be perfect. He is phenomenal in every way and he deserves to get the fame!!!!

    billy Says:

    Ian is GREAT…Christian should be played by Ian Somerhalder. He does great being a tortured soul and he shows emotion soo well. Ian reminds me of Christian just looking at him…and just cuz he isnt tall doesnt mean anything..Elena on TVD was supposed to be blonde and they made her a brunette with brown eyes.. She portrays Elena great…Ian would do wonders with Christian. PLUS IAN deserves to be on the BIG SCREEN he just has the talent.

    czar Says:

    this is FIFTY SHADES OF WRONG! Christian should be tall, fit and muscular and insanely handsome. The hair can be dyed and you can wear gray contacts for the eyes. But Ian cannot be Christian… he just doesn’t ooze masculine sexuality. Henry Cavill would be perfect!

    tatianna Says:

    @angiesl: She is pretty but only with much make-up!

    Susann Says:

    @Kaleb: Totally agree with you! Ian is amazing, one of the best actors I’ve ever seen plus he’s insanely handsome! He deserves more recognition!

    Sarah. Says:

    Nina as Ana? Nooooo!! I would like to see Ian as Christian.. but whatever.. if someone else would play Christian who is better.. that’s fine. But I definitely would not like to see Nina Dobrev in that movie.. at least not as Ana.

  30. 30
    Billy Says:

    OMG – Ian sounds so desperate for this role. He is planting it everywhere! They are not even under consideraton! Christian Grey requires a real actor who is incredibly hot like a Matt Bomer or Henry Cavill. Ian had his movie shot and bombed. He is just not up to the part.

  31. 31
    Not Ian! Says:

    HENRY CAVILL HENRY CAVILL HENRY CAVILL he is the only actor who should play christian grey he looks exactly like the books describe him to be If they pick Ian ill be extremely pissed off

    dude Says:

    @Kaleb: Most difficult character ? lolol he pretty much plays himself how hard is it for someone to act cocky and arrogant the show is full of Mediocre actors though Paul Wesley is the most talented out of the bunch but i guess no one really notices him

    Kay Says:

    Just throwing this out there, but Universal/Focus are the muscle behind Cannes opener Moonrise Kingdom. I see them going with at least one unknown thespian, not actors from a teen Vampire drama. I in no way think these books represent good literature but there’s always a way to spin trash into gold if they get a good screenwriter. When I saw Jennifer Love Hewitt wanted in I had a good laugh.

  40. 40
    Not Ian! Says:

    @Effy: no its not yes they have sex alot and it is told very descriptive but it is also a love story and learning how to trust fcuk all the people saying they hate the book if you dont like it get off this topic then

    Clare Says:

    I’d love to see Ian in a big screen movie, but I don’t want him touching this crap.
    I’m under the impression that Nina nor Ian have even read the porn oh sorry, books. They might be keeping quiet when the see how awful they are.

    No, please! They are more beautiful people like great actors!

    jade Says:

    TOTALLY agree with you czar. Ian is gorgeous no doubt about it, but its not masculine hotness that CG is supposed to ooze. Anna describes christian as a greek god (muscular, tall)….polar opposite of ian somerhalder. Now, before all the 13 yr old tvd fans start calling me “jealous” let me clarify, i am in NO WAY insulting Ian, i just don’t think he is good for this part, especially when it comes to the way he looks.

  48. 48
    ema Says:

    This is straight up erotica, the movie is going to be a sexual thriller….Since the movie will revolve around sex the physicality of the actor will matter more than ever. I’m pretty sure the producers will try to get someone as close to the books as possible…which is not in any way Ian somerhalder.Ian is hella short. And in tvd he is the cocky/funny/arrogant/badboy type, i cannot picture him as the calm and collected and serious CG.

    CC Says:


    I thought Matt Bomer was gay, don’t know how convincing he would be to an audience. He’s also a TV actor, what’s your point?

    ema Says:

    and btw omg ROONEY MARA FOR ANA!!!!!!! PERFECTION
    PALE, SKINNY, BLUE EYES, WITH AN UNDENIABLE UNDERSTATED BEAUTY!!!! She has the right amount of innocence and strength to her and shes a PHENOMENAL actresss!!!!!!!!!

  51. 51
    CC Says:

    Just reading these comments, Ian can do more than just Damon you know. Of course he can play sexy, calm, collected and serious.
    But I don’t want him involved in this, just in case it backfires. He has put a lot of effort into his reputation and Foundation over the last couple of years. He has teenagers and parents looking up to him. Porn movie, I think maybe not.

    Seeking desesperately film roles…

    We knew that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart wouldn’t touch it with a 10 feet pole…

    Sophie Says:

    She is prob filming Girl who played with fire or Girl who kicked the hornets nest at the time… Plus I luv Rooney to death and don’t want her to be associated with this book…… because it’s simply not that good. I don’t get the hype.

    But either way I promise I will EAT MY CAT if either one of these tools get the part -.- seriously! I want Christian and Ana to be someone we don’t already know or read everyday from magazines! Then maybe I would be interested and actually watch it… They should have an open casting! NEW TALENT! I’m so bored with the same people in every movie it’s not believable anymore and as silly as that sounds it bothers me lol.

    Fact Says:

    If Robert Pattinson didn’t exist this fanfic 50 Shades wouldn’t either. People will see it, because it’s hyper sexualized, and is a ‘thing,’ now – but what made it what it is, is the passion people have for one couple in particular Robert and Kristen. I don’t blame other actrs for wanting to step into something that Pattinson helped bring into being, there’s no shame in wanting to be that famous….it’s just that anyone who is not him doing it, will always be seen as riding his coattails, much in the way the author of 50 absconded with Bella and Edward with her twilight fanfic that she’s renamed 60 shades of grey so as not to get sued.

  55. 55
    Fact Says:

    50 shades, not 60. Typo

    Ellhc Says:

    Am I the only one who thinks they are great for the roles? First a good actor can handle different kind of characters, that’s the poiont of being an actor anyway. Secondly, they already have the chemistly. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THEM TOGETHER IN THIS

  57. 57
    Ford Says:

    Ewww he would be awful as Christian Grey!!! He is such a sleeze, no sex appeal at all!

    RebekahMikaelson Says:

    I think Ian would be perfect with Alexis Bledel.

    RebekahMikaelson Says:

    No one notice Paul Wesley because is a bad actor. He has no emotions!

    RebekahMikaelson Says:

    I mean Paul Wesley is beautiful but he can’t act!
    However I don’t see Nina good for that role.

    louise Says:

    ian would be geat as christian but i dont like nina to play ana, she’s too emo:( i like ana to be light and lovely to opposite fifty’s character.

  62. 62
    Gina Says:

    It’s so funny when people praise Ian for his acting. LOL. He can’t act, but so many are so blinded by his looks they can’t think straight. He’s not going to be Christian because Universal needs a good actor for this role and I have no interest to see Damon with his bulgy eyes but without the fangs.

  63. 63
    Jujubeanz Says:

    Man, If so many people hate the book why are they reading the article? I get the book has lots of sex but you guys obviously didn’t read the same book I did because under the sex, there’s a story there! A love story!
    As for the movie, i love Ian and Nina but neither of them fit the description for the characters of Christian & Ana. To make a good movie based on a book, I think sticking to the character descriptions would be a key component.
    I’ve said so many times that I really love Oliver Jackson-Cohen for this role. He makes me think of Christian. Don’t get how people saw Ian as Christian when reading the books ‘cuz he looks nothing like him!

  64. 64
    Kelly Says:

    I think Ian would be great as Christian Grey.And so do a lot of people in and out of the industry apparently. He is at the top of virtually every fan poll as the choice to be Christian. I just finished reading the books and I couldn’t agree more. When this is adapted to a screenplay it’s not going to be exactly like the books people,and it will not be porn. They will likely go for the R rating.

  65. 65
    wicked_games Says:

    Alexander Skarsgard is Perfect for the role ( not just because i like him better than Ian, who i also like)
    But he is Tall ( christian is described as tall a lot ) and he just has that dominant look,,
    If Ian wants in on the movie maybe he should be Christian’s brother ( a womanizer and funny_ Ian is more hot and funny than sexy and intimidating and Alex is vice verse)

  66. 66
    wicked_games Says:


    Oh and for Ana I think Ashley Greene would be great,,( check her out with long hair and on the movie (Summer moon)

  67. 67
    VaneGrey Says:

    Ian is perfect as Christian Grey, he has everthing of Mr. Grey, his eyes, his mouth, his smile…

    Ian es el unico que puede encarnar el papel.
