    Realistic choices (someone who WANTS the role?)

    1. Stephen Amell

    2. Clint Eastwood’s son

    3. Ian Somerhalder

    4. Chace Crawford

    These are actors who WANT the role.

    stop mentioning Ryan Gosling, Henry Cavill. Both want NOTHING to do with this role and would NEVER accept it. Even Matt Bomer has said ‘no thanks.”

  • SaadGKhan

    Henry Cavill all the way … they need to adjust according to his schedule plus get Filicity Jones on board. remove the full frontal as she requested.

  • SaadGKhan

    @Sayer: You watch too much CW

  • Grey

    Matt Bomer <3 <3 <3

  • Miriam

    For me Stephen Amell, hope to see the movie soon.

  • Ashley

    @SaadGKhan: Those are the only actors desperate enough to take on a movie adaptation about book that most people mock and is such a completely unrealistic representation of a dom/sub relationship that it veers into abusive. Who would want that on their resume aside from people from The CW trying to transition from such a stigma that the network gives them and into “serious” work?

  • jacqueline

    well, pettyfer is mediocre enough to actually want and get this, so maybe he’ll do it. same with clint’s son or kellan lutz. i don’t think any of the others are even remotely truly interested. not even ian.
    the girl seems like she’s got a good career ahead of her. i think she’ll drop out too very soon.
    i don’t think this movie should be made, but you know, i don’t think the book should’ve been published in the first place…

  • Em

    Hope no one will accept the role and the movie be canceled.Really, that book don’t fit all with a movie.

  • Gunit

    I WILL NOT WATCH! I hate that Charlie Pulled out but at the same time this is going to be a crappy movie because all the works are is fan fiction twilight porn so now that Charlie pulled out – I don’t have I watch! What a relief.

  • Charlie is sexy

    These books are just twilight fan fiction porn. It’s crazy how into it people got. Just watch porn ladies. Frig.

  • Albus

    Clint Eastwood’s son (sorry can’t remember his name lol) would be a good choice cause he’s barely known. He needs a breakthrough or something to get his name out there, just like Dakota Johnson is doing.

    I’ll admit Matt Bomer was the first and only one in my mind when i read that damn book. The description fits him perfectly but i thought i heard he’s not interested.

  • Roberta

    Matt Bomer ♥

  • M

    Cillian Murphy! Cillian Murphy!

  • anna

    Ian Somerhalder!!!!!!

  • Venusiana

    I would go for Alex and me, if it wasn’t a fantasy..

  • Funny

    Nobody! Nobody! Stop that movie production!!!

  • jayla

    This isn’t a good indication that the movie will be good. I believe Charlie knew this was a stinker and decided to drop out of it. Good Guy.

  • irina


  • Stef

    Ian. He’s perfect!

  • n_s_23_23

  • Elder

    Thank god Matt turned down their first offer! This is a train wreck!

  • Linda

    Ian Somerhalder all the way he has had movie experiance and his sexapeal is off the charts!Eat your heart out haters

  • Whycantipost

    I don’t care who does it, as long as it isn’t Alexander Skarsgard. I would like his career to continue, not sink like the Titanic, thank you very much.

  • c

    who should play christian grey? no one who respects his career.

  • A

    You took the words right out of my mouth!

  • Kathy

    Michael Gambon

  • Sayer

    @SaadGKhan: This has NOTHING with the CW. These are actors who’ve expressed interest in the role, and could pull it off.

    Matt Bomer, Henry Cavill, Robert Pattinson, Ryan Gosling and Jared Hedlund has said REPEATEDLY, they are not interested. Why then are people still pushing them?

  • essie

    this whole thing seems so ridiculous, i say give it to james franco

  • Andrea

    I am disappointed Charlie decided to drop out of this role, he would have done a good job. No way to Matt Bomer, he is a gay man. In my mind, I would want to think this man is really enjoying this role.

  • Liz

    Henry Cavill wasn’t even on the poll! It’s not accurate unless he’s on there. He was one of the top 3 fan favorites.

  • Heather

    Henry Cavill. Dakota needs to be replaced too…the role of Ana should be recast as well.

  • sugarfoot8

    Not too many beautiful faced Men in Hollywood.. that limits some what.. yeah they all have great bodies,, but Christian Grey has a face that makes any and every woman turn to look at him and sigh… only 2 that i know of Matt Bomer, Henry Cavill.

  • Casey82


    Alexander is the answer. Not only has he said he WANTS to do the movie, but he fits the character description to a T. He’s a dirty blonde with blue eyes, yet not feminine looking. He’s rugged in a sexy way… And anyone who has seen his True Blood character can see that he plays “dark and conflicted” oh so sexy.

    Matt Bomer is an attractive guy, but he’s GAY and while there’s nothing wrong with that, women don’t want to fantasize about a guy who isn’t even STRAIGHT. And Ian Somerholder, where do I begin. Completely WRONG for the role. He’s too feminine looking and cannot play a “dark yet sexy” character AT ALL. Wrong wrong totally wrong for the role.

    Like I said… ALEXANDER SKARSGARD!!!!!

  • Deedz

    Definitely not a fan of this series buuuut. How about Matthew Goode? Um, have you seen him in Stoker?

  • punkass

    I would like to see either Josh Dallas or James Deen (already a porn star so not a stretch), that’s if Dakota plays Anastasia

  • Janet

    No respectable actor will want that role. It’s going to be a career-killer for whoever takes it.

    Charlie was the best character for this role, and now it will not pan out the fans expectations. Boo, but we will get to see a lot of Charlie in SOA!!
