    the one on the right could have a chance but definitely not the one on the left

  • Jo

    Nooooo!!!

  • Vivian

    And they are…?

  • DisappointedFan

    It keeps getting worse! I guess CG was a blonde and I completely missed that. Although, I’m a fan of his, I was upset with casting Charlie Hunnam for the role. I’m glad he came to his senses and saved his career. Now, it’s ridiculous! None of them, please! Not sexy at all.

  • Cece

    Matt Bomer, otherwise will be a total failure.

  • Aye

    A bunch of guys in no clothes- no problem. If this was Kim or Miley there’d be a bunch of sexist comments.

  • Carol

    What a joke… Luke? he was terrible in that stupid movie with Selena Gomez. he just can’t act and looks too aussie, too tanned, too surfer boy.

    The other one… pff I won’t even comment

  • tick

    That makes sense. Hire a z-list actor who’s unknown & has nothing to lose & no reputation to tarnish.

  • Lemme laugh at ya

    The one on the left is not only ugly as eff but damn scary aswell!

  • Ha

    @Aye: I KNOW RIGHT! Sad that this is what the world has come to, now this double standard is just common.

  • Sayer

    This is just a big joke now. Everyone’s publicist is tossing his name out there.
    The one of the left is just…noooooooo!

  • Annabelle

    Are you kidding me? Neither of them fit the bill….at all. This whole thing has become a joke. They need to scrap the whole thing & start fresh, or don’t do it at all.
    My personal picks for CG are Henry Cavill or Scott Eastwood.

  • Gina

    Just google ” M Pokora Costume”, this guy would be perfect! He is a French Pop Star, gorgeous, hot body, and can dress up nicely.

  • Bia

    @Gina: You are funny! It was a nice joke ha ha

  • Nikki

    urgh, who cares?! Why are they so desperately trying to make this movie happen? It’s a pathetic story-line and only pent-up, lonely, sexless wives are going to go see it,

  • Ranch

    No real star will do this so guess they will use no-bodies…

  • boooom

    All the girls who want alex pettyfer for the role now after Charlie dropped STFU and DIE. Back when no one was chosen for the role so many people disses Alex and now all of sudden fan girls want him back. NO WAY you f—-ing had your chance! So feel free to get stuck with gay bomer (who if picked would suck) cos gay dude in a straight role yea that really works. Or you can have midget Ian.

  • kibs

    The role is not a bad role. It’s so talked about people are so repulsed by this erotic crazy to be movie why wouldn’t be good? take the right actor and it’ll work.

  • lol

    ian and bomer two of the ugliest men ever along with the two in the picture up there have fun!

  • amanda

    @Aye: I’m glad someone pointed that out.

  • Claudia

    Neither of these work. Isn’t E.L getting any input in this? I mean, she wrote it so she should know more than anyone who Grey looks like but it just feels like she cashed in her check and has nothing to do with this.
    I for one think this movie will be a HUGE mistake. Even if the book was and is super successful, they’re never gonna be able to do it justice unless they basically make it NC-17 which they won’t. Two, they’ve already screwed up with the casting so that’s a bad start to begin with. Oh, and I think Stephen Amell should be Christian, he’s not too well known and can pull of the brooding, billionare thing easily.

  • Heather

    The one on the left looks like he has down syndrome. :\

  • elisa

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • http://JustJared Jan

    @Heather: Easy girl…no need to be cruel.

  • http://isatoutsimplement.blogspot.fr/ Isa

    I don’t know the two of them … love the second one !

  • It’s a sign…

    … to bail. Word is out they’re cheap and want to, pardon the story pun, abuse the male actor. It’s a hard role to fill because it’s a hard story to tell. The hardship is a sign to put it on the back burner (IMO).

  • Morgan

    @boooom:

    I don’t really give a rat’s ass about this train wreck of a movie but the fact that you are implying that a gay actor cannot play straight makes me want to scream! So, by your logic, no straight actor can play gay, while it happens all the time and they even Oscars for it (Tom Hanks and Sean Penn anyone?). Matt Boomer is excellent in white collar where he ACTS (because we are talking about acting abilities not sexual orientation) as a straight man and Zachary Quinto was superb in Heroes American Horror Story and Star Trek to mention few of his roles.

    Please stop saying ridiculous things and instead of reading shite like 50 shades of grey, try something that will open your mind and enrich your understanding of life.

  • Zevon

    Interesting that this british book called “50 Shades of Grey” is completely unknown and unheard of within America, yet the brits actually SET THIS BOOK WITHIN AMERICA WITH IMPOSSIBLE FOREIGN CHARACTERS??!!?? That’s confounding and stupid, to say the least. The Americans aren’t missing a thing.

  • missmomma

    neither of them are going to work YUCK

  • David

    How about Steven Straight. He is totally hot, the right age, and played a sort of dark and very sexy part on Magic City.

  • Lia

    Armie Hammer is perfect for the role.

  • dvmom

    @Claudia:

    Stephen Amell for the win! (But didn’t he already turn down the part?)

  • Carol

    NO and NO! Every option I’ve read so far is SO BAD
