Matt Bomer Films After 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Petition Initiated

Matt Bomer is all suited up while filming for the upcoming season of his show White Collar on Tuesday (September 3) in New York City.

Currently, the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele have been awarded to Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson, respectively.

Matt and Alexis have both said they don’t want to do it. Fans should really pay attention.

# 2

The most beautiful man in the world.

# 3

Matt is a great actor.
Fifty shades is a book/movie ****

# 4

That’s really disrespectful to the author, the movie execs and the actors that have been given the roles already. While Matt Bomer is my dream Christian, I respect his decision to not participate in the movie and think that Charlie will do an equally amazing job; likewise for Alexis and Dakota.

# 5

Fans are acting insane. For sure, producers are gonna say: “hey Charlie, Dakota, u guys are uncasted” lol. C’mon be realistic, and drop this already. They have made a decision and not turning back. Don’t judge before u haven’t seen them on screen!! And plus Charlie is great, he wasn’t on my list but that’s okay. He’s going to shave, get a cut/dye hair,suit up and Bam!: Christian Grey.

# 6

I agree, he is probably the most beautiful man in the world, but being gay it must be difficult to project sexual chemistry with a woman in a very sexually charged movie like 50 Shades will be.

# 7

Fifty shades is a book/ movie s h i t

# 8

I mean I do like Matt bomer , he looks good ! I don’t have anything against gay people , but since I’ve learnt that he is , it’s just hard for me to picture him with a woman … I do think that the actor they picked is great . And I DO BELIEVE that Alexis bledel would have been PERFECT . But she is just a bit too old , and not such a great actress … Anyway let’s give it a chance . And creating a petition just for a movie is a bit excessive, it’s just a book come on !

@Paul: Not at all, he has some great chemistry with women in White Collar, after all, if a straight man can play a gay character and be credible why can’t he?…He’s an Actor.

@Blue:

N-O-T-H-I-N-G could help to Charlie to get a Christian Grey form.. Its not possible, precisely because almost everybody imagined Grey, like Matt Bomer, and you know he is a proffesional actor, so he could play this roll without any doubt.
I try to be respectful, but Im asking a question: the author and the director took this decision respectfully? I don’t think so..

Charlie played a gay man.
it’s hard for me to picture him with a woman .
This movie is s h i t .

He never wanted to play Christian Grey. Why is it so hard to accept this?

@LiiL Why you ask if the director took the decision respectfully? They are the ones who have the “eye”, seen the screen tests etc. why is it so hard for you guys to not have perspective? Plus Bomer said he is not interested on the role, period. And so Charlie isn’t an actor? How sure are you that he can’t pull it off? Have you seen him play Christian Grey already? No, right? Stop with the negative and have a more open mind. Done. Good afternoon! :-)

Matt is my Grey! Gorgeous!!

We want Matt as Grey!! but i like Dakota for the role of Anastacia <3

MATT IS GORGEOUS @ 09/04/2013 at 2:19 pm

I mean put this guy next to the clown they chose to play Grey…come on…you either want a real movie or some cheap s hit…

Wow! How gorgeous is this man! But judging from his career so far and the movies he has coming, I doubt if he wasever interested in the fifty shades role. He is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon with theatre background for gods sake! He has better roles coming his way!

Peter Burke! :o)
Why people care about this book? And why people want to see their favorite actors playing these characters? Don’t you think they deserve something better?
@Paul: I don’t agree with you. Isn’t it what he does in White Collar?

Matt will always be my Christian Grey <3

Paul and Pauline sound like homophobes. It’s called “acting” for a reason.

Rock Hudson was gay and no one ever knew until after his death. He was a talented actor.

What an awkward spot to put Matt and Alexis in. Neither of them has publicly said anything really about these roles and now they’re placed in this rather strange limelight.

Strange, because it has nothing to do with them. It’s all a creation of some, umm, let’s say enthusiastic people.

I just hope it goes away quickly. It’s done. Deal with it.

This man is perfection incarnate. My gooooodness!

@pup:

I agree. I don’t think there is anyone that looks as gorgeous as this man…many people say there is no such a thing as a perfection. Well he is: perfect father, husband, talented actor, smart, sexy, a true gentleman and amazingly beautiful inside and out. He is the type of man all women fantasize about. He’s like that glamorous diamond in an exhibit where you can look but you can’t touch. But boy is it mesmerizing to look at.

Why can’t they make a movie for matt bomer fans like “50 shades of pink”?
