  • Joana

    That’s great, but I’ll be very disappointed if he doesn’t play Christian Grey !
    The roll was made for him !

  • Kesha

    Good luck, Ian

  • Sara

    Happy for Ian. I’d like to see him branch out more in roles on the big screen, he’s a fantastic actor with so much screen presence. Still hoping to see him get the Christian Grey role as well!

    me alegra por el le deseo todo lo mejor la vere por supuesto le deseo lo mejor

  • Wendi

    Glad he finally got another film however small the film or role. Looks like he might be getting another chance after flopping in film a few years ago. Good to have something recent on your IMDB other than CW! He was acting kind of desperate for the CG but that’s not happening.

  • Elizabeth

    @Wendi:

    They have not cast the Christian Grey role yet. Filming for that is a long way off since they haven’t even signed a director yet. Ian is still in the running for the role. He’s never acted desperate for the part, I’ve followed the whole thing from the beginning. The only people who claim this nonsense are fans of other actors mentioned for the role that are jealous of all the attention Ian gets for the role because so many want to see him do it. He’s only expressed interest when asked, other than that, he doesn’t say a word about it. Other actors seem not interested, as if the role is beneath them. And haven’t even read the book or have just skimmed it and give not the most positive comments on their opinion of it.

  • Vera

    @Wendi:
    expressing an opinion that you would like the role one time is not desperate. Ian said he’d like the role one time on his twitter and never said a word by his own since. All the others times he was asked in interviews etc, What to you want him to do? Getting all negative and don’t answer? There is a difference between you being desperate for real and other people (like fans of other actors and press who wants numbers) make you seam like desperate. At least he does not act like he is above that role like others do. (and if anyone has this role he will need passion first of all, Ian has this..)
    Other than that I am really happy to see Ian landing a new movie! He will be great in it! Wish him the best!

  • Vera

    oh and Jared pleeeease it’s the Anomaly, not Anamoly – correct it!

  • Rachel

    Are there any actual stars in this movie! LOL

  • Amy

    @Rachel:

    Ummm… Brian Cox is a very good actor.

  • Ted

    This good news! But he’s the only guy who can play CG!

  • Ogden

    LOL they won’t trust a movie franchise to someone that has had no success on the big screen and only ensemble tv roles. You can dream though.

  • lemor aquarius (@starld)

    Ian Somerhalder’s role is a challenging, interesting, and intriguing role…

    waking up and finding yourself in a situation, condition or environment not knowing how you got there and or how you got in the condition situation you are in is one of the most shocking and devastating things that can happen to anyone…

    Trying to imagine and portray that character as to how you would react to being in such a situation is/must be difficult if you have never experienced it…
    To know that you have a time limit to try and figure it out changes the scenario and the way you would react even more I could imagine U would probably panic instead of trying to keep calm… other than

    If having this time was a fact but you didn’t know about it…

    depending on the condition and circumstances you wake up too, you don’t stop to think about how much you are hurting or bleeding or anything else other than you need to get to safety or to the hospital or whatever that immediate need is more than how it has happened to you… To get out and away overwhelms everything… and there is a certain kind of almost robotic calmness that takes over as you find and look for every possible clue and way to get you to safety to help or where you want to be… the feeling of pain and trying to figure out how and what has happened comes to you only once you have accomplished your instinctive immediate reaction and need…

    I think (in real life) sometimes that the time limit that you have be it 9;37 minutes or 15 minutes or 60 minutes of being awake before going into the next relapse of comatose is purely kept alive by the same thing that made you wake up, which is your subconscious unconscious mind and will power to stay alive and keep going until you take your first step on “safety ground” so to speak and the second your brain realizes that you made it the minute you step into( i.e.) that emergency hospital reception everything in your body lets go slipping back into comatose state…

    When waking up or when finding yourself in any dangerous life threatening condition or state, your first reaction is not to try and figure out how it has happened to you, or how badly you are hurt and how you got hurt…

    your first instinct is that you know you’ve got to get out, get help and it’s almost an out of body experience and power that drives you to keep going until you do, at that time you don’t feel pain and you don’t stop until you either dead or you’ve made it.

    I’m not sure if anyone can see any relevancy or take a message and learn something from what I’ve just posted over here… but …

    I have survived a real life threatening event like this in my life and I have just portrayed what I have experienced…

    I look forward to seeing the movie and think Ian is the perfect person to play the character
