I am done reading Fifty Shades of Grey and onto Fifty Shades Darker. I am really enjoying the books. It’s a fun love story… with a few extras!

I loved seeing all the possible “Christians” popping up on Pinterest. Must have been a very fun pinning project!

Matt Bomer – this is my vote to play Christian!!

I can’t wait for you to finish the third book 50 Shades Freed too! Yes, pinning all the possible Christians on Pinterest was by far my favorite project. It’s so hard to choose just one! What are your thoughts for Ana?

Ann April 25, 2012 at 5:05 am

Ian Somerhalder :)

Tammi April 25, 2012 at 2:59 pm

I think the only real choice for Christian is Ian Somerhalder, and for Anastasia it should be Amanda Seyfried. That’s who I see in my head as I read the books…

Matt. Bomer. Done. :0)

I am torn between Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer…both are so sexy and just scream Christian Grey to me!

Ludija April 29, 2012 at 2:39 am

Henry Cavill as Christian for sure! and Felicity Jones as Anastasia.. I have to say at first I was like ‘Okay, just going to read the first four chapters and then we’ll see’ but now I cant seem to put it down. who doesn’t want a christian for they own, I surely want one hot Christian.. :)

I think Matt Boomer is how I think Christian would look but he is too old. He is 35 and Christian is only 27. The perfect person to play Christian is Henry Cavill. He is 29 years old he is tall 6’1″ wavy dark hair, fantastic built body (not skinny). Ian Somerhalder is sexy but way too short, he is only 5’9″, a little too old he’s 33 and too skinny.

Christan Grey should be played by Jesse Metcalf he is super hot and has gray eyes like Christian and he is gorgeous like Christian should be as for Anastasia she should be played by Mila Kunis

I see a dark-haired, 30-something, blue eyes guy….

Jesse Pavelka.

Why has know one considered Ryan Reynold or Channing Tatum? Both would be fine options. Need to think of appropriate age group, hair color can be easily changed. It has to be someone that is universally sexy.

Richard Madden from Games of Thrones. He is in his 20′s like Grey and has the right looks.

Shani May 8, 2012 at 2:24 pm

William Levy would make a mouthwatering Christian Grey. Dancing With The Stars has brought him to life & he would breath life into Mr. Grey

Cooking Girl May 12, 2012 at 5:38 pm

The entire time while reading the books I imagined Gabriel Aubrey. Yes, I know he’s not an actor and he is a bit older than the character but look at him. He’s the epitome of smoldering sexiness. I imagine most women would have the same reaction to Gabriel Aubrey as they do with the character Christian Grey. See for yourself. Can you blame me?

Matt Bomer, Matt Bomer, Matt Bomer. There is no other choice!!!!

kristin May 18, 2012 at 2:04 pm

ALEX PETTYFER!!!!! FOR THOSE WHO SAY iAN sOMERHALDER……HAVE YOU READ THE BOOK? Have you seen him shirtless? he is in no way built as Mr Grey is described!

ashley May 21, 2012 at 3:56 pm

The only person I can envision Christian Grey as is Chris Hemsworth! He is so perfect! Amanda Seyfried might not look as innocent and young as Anastasia Steele.. but I think it might work if she is chosen

Nancy June 24, 2012 at 8:48 am

I agree with Nic, I think Richard Madden would be a good choice as Christian. He’s terrific looking, the right age, the right looks and can act. And he must be okay with getting naked since he has done so for Game of Thrones and is going to star in an indie movie playing a guy who beds 7 women in 7 days.

Henry Cavill IS Christian Grey! Did you see his Dunhill Black ads on youtube? They SCREAM Fifty!1 he has the looks,the eyes,the body & that boyish smile & smirk. He was on Tudors & played seductive,domineering,playful & pained. He can play all 50 shades of Christian with ease. He also has already done nudity & explicit scenes with no problem. He has it & done it all. I think Matt Bomer is beautiful but older & being openly gay would shatter womens fantasies of a manl Christian even though he has played a straight guy on White Collar at least for me anyway. Henry is all male & looks like a greek god as described. He has the look,body as described & has the resume to show he has the acting chops to do it as well. His Dunhill ads play like a mini 50 shades movie. He can also do classy businessman as well & does not have a hard look about him so he can look charming sexy & businesslike but when he comes out can do sexy dominant with a peircing look as well. As for Ana I think Alexandra Daddario of Percy Jackson is the perfect fit. She has the long brown hair,alabaster skin,blue eyes to big for her face & lips great for biting. She fits all descriptions of Ana, & even at 26 looks 22 & innocent with no need for makeup. She has a natural beauty that can also be played up to sexy & the maturity of a 26 yr old for the explicit scenes as well as becoming a mother. They would look great together!

Am I the only one who wants Jonathan Rhys Meyers playing Christian Grey?

Ryan July 17, 2012 at 7:43 am

Cam Gigandet …. for sure have you seen him in Burlesque??!

Vanes July 24, 2012 at 2:54 am

I believe Hunter Parrish would be the best actor to portray Christian Grey. Hunter has already play a few
Dominate rolls with women in weeds and is familiar and very skilled (as well as antagonzingly sexy) when it comes
To sex scenes. His face look that of a 27 year old man with a sophisticated look.

Megan July 26, 2012 at 1:33 pm

Hunter Parrish by far would be the best on the list! He has that sexy, dominant personality. Not to mention the GREAT body & looks ;) I think he would be absolutely perfect for the role!

JESSE METCALFE as Christian Grey. He is perfect! He is exactly who I picture when I think of Christian Grey.
