“Me playing Christian wouldn’t be an issue. I even have a sex chamber in my basement—my True Blood character does—so I’ve had [the necessary] training,” Alexander said (via the Examiner).

no! matt bomer for christian grey

# 2

Umm Who are you again? LOL I dont see why people think Ryan Gosling is so attractive, he seems cocky to me, and not much of a big deal. But if the ladies dig him, I think he should do the role.

# 3

God I wish people would stop asking him about this crap. He is too polite to ever say anything else.

# 4

Love him but not christian grey.

# 5

He is such a Dweeb! Your not Christian Grey, Alex so get over it!

# 6

christian bale ? I did not read the book (yet) , but i do think that he could play christian perfectly :p

If they don’t cast Matt Bomer as Christian Grey, the movie will be a flop…there’s already an internet hysteria over him as Christian Grey…Alexander is hot, but I don’t see him as CG…nope

Whatever Alex @ 11/08/2012 at 11:10 am

We all know your dating Charlize T . it’s been con firmed by lainey you went to Nambia so its tru Alex,,, so why the long face and hiding it just like with Kate bosworth claimed your single but your NOT ? Such a clist and faux actor …,,

Hello Handsome!!!

Anyway I am not going to see the movie. Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling are too good for it and I think they want bigger projects…Matt Bomer seems to fit though….

As much as I love Alex, he’s not Christian Grey. Henry Cavil on the other hand…perfect

hell yea he is so hot he would do an amazing job! forget all u ppl who think otherwise matt bomer yuck but alex or ryan gosling for sure.

Although I’d never turn down the chance to see Alexander in a sexy role, really any role for that matter, I am not really feeling him as Christian Grey. I admire him for chosing roles that are constantly different and show off his acting skills. Playing Christian Grey is just too close to playing Eric.

@m: i kinda agree with you. but i don’t see a movie studio allowing the new superman to have a sex chamber in the basement. that’s kinda off brand IMO

He’s my second choice for C.Grey. My first pick is Henry Cavill, I think I would probably combust if they cast him :P
I agree and understand why people who are not a fan of the book say it is lousy written -it is. But when it gets turned into a movie they will be hiring their own qualified writers so I’m really optimistic about its chances as a movie.

@Ashley: Umm…is Christian Gray supposed to be gay? If not, there’s no way Bomer should play him. A gay man is just not believable as a straight man. Sorry but that’s true.

He must not have read the book. There is more to the book/character than the Red Room. He is not the right fit for the role IMO.

I think he would be great as Christian he is tall slinder and does that thing with his eye brow. I also think Anne Hathaway would be great as Anastasia she looks innocent and is a fantastic actress.

He is beautiful. good choice for grey

WOW. I’ve never read this book; heard it was an insult to literature, but the comments in here are more hilarious. Some of you ladies are freaking out over the casting choices as if Christian Whatshisface is Jesus and this horny book is The Bible. Good grief, get a grip! Watch a porno or something to release all that sexual frustration!

People should quit pitting him as Christian Grey. Alexander is not handsome enough.

Alex Skarsgard’s closet – where all white t-shirts go to die.

Isn’t CG like 26 or 27? Alex is too old.
