    HCfan Says:

    Matt Bomer is the perfect choice.

    Henry Cavill can do much better than making this cheap awful movie, that’s why Charlie drop out, he knew it was a mistake and a bad move for his career.
    I’ts going to be so embarrassing to any actor to make this sxxt, Henry is perfect as Superman and admired by kids, Warner is not going to allow him to do this mess.

    Max Irons. I hated Fifty Shades when it was the Twilight fanfic Master of the Universe, but I’d watch it if Max Irons was in it. He’s too good of an actor to even probably consider this hot mess of a movie, though.

    Only Ian Somerhand can do the justice to this role

    jOYLINN Says:

    I wish the casting crew would go back and read the book, especially the description of Christian Grey. There are only 2 that fills it — Henry Cavill and Matt Bomer. He is supposed to be drop-dead gorgeous that women practically faint when they see him, and would do anything he wants.

  18. 18
    Bibi Says:

    I know only in my dreams but MICHAEL FASSBENDER! He’s got that alpha male vibe that Christian’s got in the book. I know people think he’s too good for this but maybe they can turn the book into a decent movie.

    misbah Says:

    well i have always been really fond of matt bomer and ian somerhalder..but i will be ok with chace crawford too..though matt bomer is whom i pictured as christian grey from the very first day till now and may be forever..

    Fassbender is that good that he would add some credibility to the movie. To others would be a risky movie but for him… he is that good

  24. 24
    Bibi Says:

    I know Michael looks old and Grey is what..? 27 /28? but c’mon it makes no sense… he is too young to be a billionaire. I would make him older in the movie and cast Michael Fassbender if only i could :D

    The question isn’t who will be best, but who would agree to do this. Charlie probably had someone whisper in his ear, “Man are you crazy?.”
    Fassenbender? He wouldn’t do this piece of ca ca.
    Christian was an abuser. The author had no idea what it’s like in the REAL S & M world. Yeah, they do it because they were abused, then they give up the life, get married to the dull, stupid girl and have kids. It happens all the time. NOT! Basically women are saying it’s ok for a guy to do that because he was abused. Sounds romantic eh? None of those women would last 10 minutes with a real Dom. Dom’s do not do it just to inflict pain and they don’t take on naive school girls. Christian was anything but romantic. He should have lived on the psychiatric couch or spent a good many years in jail.

    Alexandra Says:

    these are my choices
    1.- Matt Bomer (even tho he said he wouldn’t do it)
    2.- Jared Leto xd (obviously he also would not go for it)
    3.- Ryan Phillipe (I think putting the tattoos aside he’s kind of a perfect fit hair & eyes color wise.)

    Bibi Says:

    I know Michael woulnd’t do this ”crappy” movie but you know what happened? People started liking to hate on the story because everybody else was doing it. Its a ‘trend’. you see… I watched ‘SHAME’ and to me this movie is pretty lame! It’s a pretentious ****** film. everybody was like ‘wowwww thats wonderful what a piece of art’ just because it was cool to like it and it was artsy whatever… its a shame that people like to go by other people’s opinion… The book is not wonderful but the story is somewhat interesting, the characters are catchy and Christian is very appealing. The writing wasn’t very sophisticated one may say but I honestly think they could turn into a very sexy and amazing movie.
    ”Shame” isn’t that big of a deal and Michael agreed to it… FSOG might have stood a chance in his eyes if people weren’t so damn hateful towards it.

    pardon my english.

    Kirsty T Says:

    No actor of any real value would touch this piece of dog poo. Read the first book out of interest and it was new and okay but know that I am done and wouldn’t bother with the movie. Most of my friends are the same.

    JJ THE EXPAT Says:

    I hope Ian Somerhalder gets it. He’s really a fantastic and charismatic actor. On the other hand, his schedule on Vampire Diaries would make it difficult to commit. I’m sure the producers of the film don’t want to have another Charlie Hunnam bailing on them. So my second choice is Matt Bomer.

  52. 52

    Henry Cavill. Alexis Bledel.These two are the perfect actors.

  57. 57

    I would rather he not do it. It was said that he was never in the running. If he were to accept the role now, I think he would look kinda foolish.

    Paul Bettany is the one for me.

    Nobody. That movie shouldn’t be made

  60. 60
    Bibi Says:

    Well… since M. Fassbender is now a farcry from the obscurity days in Hex and wouln’t do it and since I picture Christian Grey being 35+ I would go with Richard Armitage. He is so underated, such a talented actor… if you watch him as Guy of Gisborne in Robin Hood you would totally see what i’m talking about. he is very masculine, virile… all man and he is unknown so i don’t think he would be very picky :/ i think there is a possibility he would take it

    @Ashley: I totally agree!!! Don’t bother making a movie of that trashy series of books.

  81. 81
    Danielle Says:


    Jesse if you read the last book and the point of view from Christian–he thought she was a sub because she tripped in his office. He had no idea she wasn’t until later. And by then from the book–they were both very attracted to one another and wanted to give the relationship, such as it was, a chance.

    This wasn’t literature you know. And the author had no intention of making it a real dom-sub relationship.

    @julie: Henry should be there because he was always one of the top 3 fan favorites! Yes Dakota looks very old for her age and looks nothing like Ana, I’m hoping she will drop too or be replaced.

    i thought that charlie was the perfect grey!, i’m tired to hear that everyone wants matt bomer as christian grey but he is no darker enough for the role! he is just a good looking guy but he doesn’t fill the role, i want ian for grey but also i’m scared that the movie will be bad for his career

  97. 97
    Bobbie Says:

    Really People?… Just because someone is gay it doesn’t mean he can’t play the role, that’s just being rude and unfair. Either way, they should just drop this whole project, I’m not sure but I don’t think this movie will be as everyone is expected to be, I mean They should just leave everyone’s imagination to flow with the book. This movie will just ruin it.

    There is only *ONE* CHRISTIAN TREVELYAN-GREY and his name is MATTHEW STATION BOMER!!!!

    Look at this man’s beautiful face, thick ache-to-touch hair, sensual lips, eyes the blue-grey of a summer storm, cheekbones sculpted by the gods, chest & abs that make angels weep and a sinfully perfect ass…Add that sexy velvet whisper of a voice and the wayhe LOOKS at a woman (see “Chuck” Season 1/Ep 10 or “White Collar”; or even as far back as “Guiding Light”)…

    @Candice: Ditto! I don’t know why his name or any openly gay actor’s name would even be tossed in the hat! This book has readers; many MANY readers, female readers who are living vicariously through it and bringing it to the big screen requires a “straight” face to go with it. Don’t nobody get their panties in a knot for saying what a whole lot are thinking and none of us are homophobes or anti gay actor.

    Jonathan Rhys Meyers has my vote. He is so hot and can carry the role of Christian Grey with little effort. Why in the world hasn’t he been asked to do this movie?

    While I like Matt Bomer, I do not want to see him in this role. Matt has been wonderfully open about his sexual orientation…and I applaud him for that and support him, however, I would personally have a problem with him portraying Christian because of that fact that the storyline is sooo sexual in nature. Whoever fills the role needs to have no inhibitions and be willing to lay it all out there…whatever is required.

    I haven’t read the whole thread but has Liam Hemsworth been mentioned or Chris? Liam is in Love & Honor a Nick Sparks film so maybe he’s not into all “this” which I can’t blame him. Doms have nefarious beginnings. This is a dark, dark film.
    And frankly, they’re going to have to skip 85% of it to make it watchable, even provocative. And how do they get to the “happy” ending in 2 hours? I know the author doesn’t give a flip making $5M on the movie rights, and way too much for these girlie-girl novels exploiting people’s inner pains.

    Vixen Says:

    The problem is that most of the actors on the selection list are too established to risk their careers on doing this role. Yes, the books are popular, but it’s basically going to always come off a bit seedy and porny. Whoever does this risks being the next Elizabeth Berkeley in Showgirls. At best, they will be Mickey Rourke after 9 1/2 Weeks. You need someone who’s still a little hungry, and clearly not afraid to do cheesy movies. I suggest Cam Gigandet. He has the look. And he was even in the first Twilight movie, which they could use to play up the fanfic relationship element of the books.

    Why do people think Matt Bomer?? People you do realize that he is a gay man. How is he suppose to be a strong dominant forceful man like Christian Grey?? Yes he has all the looks but he have a soft face that is just too sweet not take control.
    Look into Colin Egglesfield. He is tall dark blued eyed strong cutie. When he gets angry you can see it on his face. He looks to be able to take control when he wants too.
    Try to find an actor who is not in the big leagues and give that person a shot to show who Christian Grey can be.

    I think Matt Bomer is the only one for the movie and I believe that he is Christian Gray it is written all over him. But I believe that the best person to play Chris twenty year ago check this out Joe Black “aka” Brad Pitt was make for this triolgy to bad E.L. didn’t write her books back then. No disrespect to Dakota but she is not Ana. Alexis Bledel is Matt’s Ana no other actress pair perfect on the trailer they was born to play the role. It’ all about the acting.

    None of those, I voted for other because I think none of those people would make a good person for this role. I personally think Ed Westwick could be a great addition to the role since he already played the rich kid in Gossip Girl he knows how to play a part like this. He’ll also bring a lot of Gossip Girl fans, which is a lot since gossip girl was very popular, and will get more viewers! Anyone else think so?
