Stephen Amell Talks 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Casting Meetings!

Stephen Amell has revealed that he has taken a meeting to possibly play Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey film!

The 31-year-old actor took to his Facebook account the next day to send his fans a vague message about the meeting.

“I get questions about Christian Grey all the time. That project is a long way off. I know this, because I had a meeting about it. Long way off. I mean, not that long, but not close. I wouldn’t call it long, but I wouldn’t call it close,” Stephen said.

Pictured inside: Stephen kissing his co-star Katie Cassidy while sporting a retro outfit on the set of Arrow on Wednesday (March 20) in Vancouver, Canada.

Earlier in the day, Stephen rocked his classic Arrow makeup for more filming and was also joined on set by his wife Cassandra Jean.

# 1

He’s kissing his co-star Katie Cassidy dumb-ass.

# 2

Ugh, I hope not. He would make a terrible Christian. Some of these people that are being “considered” are just awful.

# 3

He’s not kissing his wife, he’s actually kissing Katie Cassidy because they’re filming a scene.

# 4

Hell no! This guy keeps flaunting out his new wife and marriage. I don’t think thats appealing to female fans who want to fantasize about Christian Grey.

# 5

Yes, please give it to this lame nobody actor so people can stop discussing my actual favorite good actors for this stupid movie.

# 6

He sounds SO incredible stupid. I think he’s ready to be associated with the book!

# 7

Terrible Christian! And he doesn’t even have a sexy voice to swoon over. We ALL know its a ways off because EL James has reminded us of that a few times. I’m sure he’ll audition, but I doubt he’ll get it. The Christian I have in my head is much hotter and more fitting to the character in the book, so I won’t be seeing it if in fact he does end up with the part.

# 8

“I know this, because I had a meeting about it.” Wtf? Is he bragging? I don’t like his comment it rubs me the wrong way, and I certainly don’t like him for Christian. I don’t find him nearly as attractive as Christian is supposed to be. Bleh!

# 9

I will boycott all things Fifty Shades, except the books themselves. If he is cast as Christian!

First he says it’s a long long way off, then I wouldn’t call it long, but not close. He needs to just shut up. Christian Grey indeed.

He wouldn’t be my first choice as Christian but I think he would be great. I love Arrow!!

I don’t like him for Christian either. He’s nothing like Christian should be.

THANKS FOR THE SPOILER

Relax ppl theres more parts in 50 shades that he could have a meeting for

No he will NOT make a good Christian Grey. Not even close. Matt Bomer would be best, but Charlie Hunnam, Henry Cavill, or Jesse Pavelka would work too. :)

I would pay big money to see Stephen as Christian Grey, he would be perfect.

OMG I hope not. He soesn’t fit the mental picture I have of Christian Grey. Who ever they finally cast for the role has to be physical perfection and a gorgeous face. The guy has to sizzle on screen and ooze sexappeal. I hope they have an open casting call like they did for Twilight. Look how perfecr the role of Edward turned out. I never hear of Robert Pattinson before Twilight.

For everyone that saying “NO WAY” for him to be cast as “Christian Grey”… THANK YOU!! Only because HE isTOO GOOD for that role anyways! Stick with Arrow Stephen… you’re too talented for 50 Shades of BS

It would require true talent so please only Bomer or Gossling but both are rather above trashy novels turned movies

I’m sorry but Stephen is not nearly attractive enough for Christian. What a dull choice he would be. I think several actors have had meetings so it’s not something that’s exclusive to him I would guess. My choice would be Ian Somerhalder. Perfect match of actor and role. If not, then an unknown actor because none of the other so called fan favorites are anywhere near being the whole package needed for this role.

HELL NO. PLEASE DO NOT CAST HIM. sorry but he is just not hot enough for the descriptions in the books. i still think Channing Tatum is the perfect choice. who is with me?

Mostly everyone that’s a fan has read these books already, so it’s not like we’re going to see the movie and the actors will be who we then picture in our heads when we go to read the books. We expect to see the actors actually look like the characters, since we’ve pretty much all already read the books first! Stephen does NOT look like Christian! Christian is supposed to make all the women swoon and be spellbound over him. Stephen does not have that effect! I was just watching an interview the other day with Henry Cavill, and the lady interviewing him was so flustered! Now THAT is the Christian Grey effect!

@MJ:

Ian Somerhalder has that effect in spades on women. He definitely has the most Christian Grey effect of all the names mentioned. Stephen Armell, not at all. Some of these choices are puzzling.

@Joyce: Ian doesn’t have that effect on me, that’s for sure! But to each their own.

It’s about the time they would hold initiatory meetings even though casting hasn’t actually begun, and I’m certain Stephen isn’t the only one. Perhaps he was just offered a future audition? Who knows. I definitely can’t see him as CTG though. All I hope for is that my favs at least get an audition. Then may the best man and woman win.
