Will the Real Christian Grey Please Stand Up?
Oh, Christian Grey. By now, if you haven’t already read the much buzzed about book by E.L. James, you should at least have an inkling of what all the excitement is about. By the by, you can visit this link to purchase the book Fifty Shades of Grey http://www.amazon.com/Fifty-Shades-Grey-Book-Trilogy/dp/0345803485.
There seems to be mucho speculation going around regarding who should be the actor to portray the now infamous Mr. Grey. While there is much talk about Iam Somerhalder, Ryan Gosling, Matt Bomer, Chris Hemsworth, Hugh Jackman, Robert Pattinson etc. I shall now dissect why, in my humble opinion, certain actors mentioned are not suitable for the role and who I think can actually pull it off?
Please keep in mind that the following actors being discussed are all being considered for the part:
I can keep this short and simple. I can, in no way, think of Captain Kirk and Christian Grey being the same guy. Enough Said.
Although Fassbender is, indeed, a fantastic actor I believe he is simply too old to pull off the role of 27 year old Christian Grey and he simply is not good looking enough. Dangerous-looking, yes. If they have a movie about ex-cons they will be making soon, he’s your guy. Gorgeous to the point where he can make a woman do things she would never imagine, I don’t think so!
As an adult woman, I cannot imagine anyone from the Twilight movies portraying Christian Grey. Sorry, it just doesn’t make sense to me lol
Although he is certainly good-looking, he just looks too old to play 27.
Good-looking but not gorgeous. Mr. Grey is supposed to be an Adonis, the perfect specimen of masculinity and Mr. Pettyfer just isn’t it.
Not a chance in hell.
A former underwear model, do we even know if he has any acting skills? Additionally, he looks like the poster boy for the frat house president.
Too old. Love you Hugh!
Former star in All My Children. Great looking guy, but, to me, there is something cheesy and super creepy about him. I don’t want to be creeped out by Christian Grey.
The first one on this list that I can actually see being a contender. Insanely gorgeous and has incredible acting talents. Seen The Tudors anyone? The guy even played a Greek God in The Immortals and that was no mistake! This guy has everything it takes to play Mr. Grey.
There has been a lot of discussion about this particular actor as he himself has even insisted to the director that he IS Christian Grey. Ian, hate to tell you this, you are NOT Christian Grey. At least, not in my mind. You are a skinny little guy and half the time you look like you’re on heroin! Not gonna happen Ian, sorry!
LOVE Christian Bale, he is so NOT Christian Grey.
Hands down a contender for the part. He has the sultry, sexy thing down to a science and between he and Henry Cavill, it should be quite a battle. Either way would work for me.
So, it will be incredibly interesting to see who it ends up being. What’s your vote? Who do you think is best suited to play the part and why?
