Stephen Amell: Christian Grey Will Not Be Me!

Stephen Amell: Christian Grey Will Not Be Me!

Stephen Amell does some shopping with his wife Cassandra Jean at The Grove on Wednesday (May 8) in Los Angeles.

The 32-year-old actor revealed on his Facebook page this week that he will not be playing Christian Grey in the film Fifty Shades of Grey, despite taking a meeting for the role.

“Was on a flight yesterday evening back to LA with no movie, so I grabbed 50 Shades of Grey and burned through it,” Stephen said. “Ummm… I hope they get the movie made, and I’m sure someone will be excellent in it. That person will not be me.”

ARE YOU SAD that Stephen Amell will not be in Fifty Shades of Grey?

    Good cause you look nothing like christian and your body is way to big anyway so thank goodness, oh and your acting sucks you couldn’t pull christian off. The only person i can thine that would suit would be Matt Bomer noone else comes to mind.

    stephen amell is very hot indeed!!! but why he has such bad taste in woman?? why he married a woman like cassandra jean?? she’s nothing compared to katie cassidy!!! katie cassidy suits stephen amell better than cassandra jean!!! thumbs up if u wanna see they divorce and see stephen falls in the charm of katie!!!

  • Keiko

    I have no idea who he is, but he has integrity. Good for him to distance himself from this pile of s*h*i*t.

    MAYBE BECAUSE OF THIS MAN’S LACK OF PERSONALITY

  • urbane

    who cares! he doest look even a bit of Xtian Grey!

  • So True

    You got that right, you were not even in the running!

  • Tian

    The very act of commenting on a post, that isn’t from the red carpet, is straight up creepy. If you don’t get the blatant irony of this comment, you likely work at Burger King-not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  • SOUR GRAPES

    I’m calling bullsh!t on this; if he already had a meeting with the producers or executives months ago he knew what he was in for and would have never showed up for the meeting without having read a few chapters of the book first. He seemed enthusiastic.
    I think this is a case of sour grapes, him not getting the role and trashing it instead.

  • Karen

    @Keiko: Amen!

  • Camden

    It’s interesting. I think any actor whose name has been brandished about for this project whom has gone on to actually read the books, ultimately shy’s away from it.
    It’s an addictive book, sure. But it’s a trashy book, and if a film is made where quality is slipped up, it can easily become a trashy movie.
    Henry Cavill only a few days ago commented in an interview that he may be reticent to star in the film, despite the fact that he’s a fan favourite.

  • Pauline

    thank god , he is a horrible actor :/ , and he is way to structured to be CTG

  • Roberta Tatarin

    Thanks God! Matt Bomer for Christian Grey! =)

  • QueenOfTrashin

    Yes, I am sad. I thought he would be perfect for the role.

  • kat

    Best choice he’s made so far. Ugh, that is just going to be the biggest stinker ever.

  • Nikki

    No self respecting actor will do this movie. You all are asking for Matt Bomer and others and they won’t do it. It’s sh**t and they know it.

  • Mia

    good, this movie is going to be a carreer kill and i like stephen.

  • http://umarkgerald@yahoo.com mark gerald

    Matt Bomer is a good choice. indeed!!!

  • ??

    Wait I thought they already picked Matt Bomer for the part!!! o.O

  • Nina

    @Christopher Teoh Jing Xiang: there are no thumbs, you idiot -_-

  • Nina

    I really hope they don’t follow the whinings of middle aged and teenage dellusional horny chicks and invest loads of money to make 50 shades, the books are enough, no need to make things worse.

  • Simona

    Stephen Amell is not a good actor, in the arrow has two roles: shirt or no shirt! In 50 shades of gray, the actor has to be tall, dark with green eyes so ‘is described in the book!

  • angela

    @Simona
    Him wearing a shirt or not has nothing to do with his acting. He actually essentially plays 3 characters; pre-island Oliver, island Oliver and present day Oliver. And he’s good at all of them. Just because he has a six pack doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any talent.
