    He is freaky and scary looking making him a perfect fit for a vampire. (The hot vampire guy is Paul.) Ian has chased this so hard he has made a fool of himself. Fame ***** I think they call it. Gray or hot he is NOT and didn’t the other gay actor turn this role down?

    The book is being adapted into a screenplay so it’s not going to be exactly like the book. Hopefully they’ll make it similar to Secretary.

    Ian is cute, but he’s not masculine enough to play Christian Grey. He doesn’t look dominant, he needs a certain posture, and stance about him. Henry Cavill all the way.

    N Says:

    NOOOOOOOOO The perfect Christian Grey is Matthew Bomer!!!!

    bdgf Says:

    I tried imagining him when I read and just dont picture him. and sorry but can he act? I hope they dont just cast “eye candy”. It would be nice if he looked the part AND can act.

    Okey Dokey Says:

    Nope he is to old now and it shows in his face he could not get away with being 28

    Joanna Says:

    @N: I agree. Matt Bomer has everything!

    Piperwest12 Says:

    Matt Bomer is my choice as well he is Christian Grey!

    Two words – Too short!
    No manly domineering presence–they will have to cast a very, very short actress. Lol

    :) Says:

    I think Matt Bomer is a better choice.

    On a side note: does anyone else think it weird that for a while we would see Ian with Nina, pretty much nonstop, and now they are rarely seen together. Or maybe, I’ve just missed the pictures.

    No No Says:

    NO to Ian or Matt!!!!!!!! Ian is creepy looking and Matt is eh! Henry Cavill is Christian Grey!!!!!!! He’s got that look, the sexy look, the height, that strong presence and those penetrating hot stare!

    pup Says:

    @No No: Those are actually my top 3 choices for CG. So I totally wouldn’t mind if either Mr.Cavill got the part!

    River Says:

    Ian is definitely Christian Grey. He would be perfect for the part. As to the pal Ian had lunch with, that was Kevin Williamson.

    Sammy Says:

    I seriously what’s so hot about this guy. I find him scray and odd looking sometimes, totally not how I imagine Christian Grey to look like. I think either Matt Bomer or Henry Cavill should be offered the role.
