    I’m ashamed to say that I’ve read those books, and he is definitely not Christian Grey. The first person that came to mind as Grey was Christian Bale ala Patrick Bateman. However, he’s a bit too old, so Ian Somelhalder (sp?) would be my next choice. Matt Bomer fits the physical description as well, but he is such a NICE person, and so much better than that trash, that I don’t want him in the part.

    This Aussie can be my Christian Grey anyday of the week.

    CB POLL: Thor or Thor’s Brother? If you had* to, for one night bang** a Hemsworth, and only one Hemsworth, which one would you? Liam or Chris?

    *No opting out by death.
    **Assume there is no Miley or Thor’s Wife.

  4. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    OMG!!!!!!!! In July 2012, I was talking w my girl cousin in the car, and explained why Chris would be the ideal Grey. I cannot believe this is literally happening now….ok sorry, just excited!!!

  5. Samantha says:

    Rumors have been swirling about his involvement since the SWatH press tour!

  6. Belle says:

    Haven’t read the books, though I have read reviews of them many times… LOL Each time I think of downloading one to my kindle, the reviews remind me that I have plenty of other smutty books that are better :)

    So, I guess it isn’t fair for me to comment on Chris in (or not in) the 50 Shades movie… I will just comment on how much I adore pictures of him carrying his little girl!!!!

    • j.eyre says:

      I know, shots of him and his daughter absolutely melt me. And the bottom 3 photos on this post – I know exactly where he is standing.

      Fifty Shades of Crap was a horrible book. I wanted some light reading the other day and picked up Sylvia Day’s Bared to You because there was so much discussion going on with it. Bared is actually a decent book. A guilty pleasure. Some say there are similarities between Bared and Fifty and that may be on a superficial level, but Bared is a much, much better written book.

      Christian Gray: Colin Egglesfield
      Gideon Cross: Gaspard Ulliel

    Oh my God He is ssssoooooooooooooooooo hooooooooooooootttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I used to read the SAS books, series of espionage novels featuring prince Malko Linge as the lead character, who had a sort of James Bond-esque life, and it had some graphic sex scenes described. Still, the stories were entertaining and all that fantasy. I enjoy reading adults novels, I enjoy reading trash and all at times so I finally got to read 50 shades of Grey. It is by far one of the worst books I’ve ever read. Bafflingly crap!

    • j.eyre says:

      If you want a good laugh at the books’ expense, read this person’s reviews of them:


      You don’t have to have read the books to enjoy them – I have only ever read the first and found all three reviews fun.

      Also, my editor gave me Fifty Shades of Chicken for Christmas. That too, will make up for some of the life-hours you lost reading Fifty Shades.

      • Ms Kay says:

        Thanks dear, I shall take a look :-D

        Loved, loved, loved that review! I am an English Prof, and I am embarrassed to say that I succumbed to curiosity and read the books. Luckily, there was so little substance in them that they were a fast and mindless read. I have nothing against erotica, but these novels were terribly written and comically bad. To all of the women who actually think this was good mommy porn: There’s much better stuff out there, ladies!

        Two of the really annoying details not mentioned in the review were (1) the extremely heavy-handed (and unintentionally humorous) overuse of the word “grey” and (2) the far-fetched and unbelievable character of the housekeeper who had to wash butt plugs as part of her regular cleaning duties…Really?

        In all fairness, I have to admit that, although I was not titillated at all by the trilogy, it did give me many “laugh out loud” moments, so I guess the novels weren’t a complete waste of my time!

  9. Happymom says:

    I never read these books-but I’m a huge Outlander fan-and I think he would be a perfect Jamie. Swoon.

  10. lucy2 says:

    I can’t wait until everyone forgets about those stupid books.

    Amy Poehler? I don’t see that, but it definitely doesn’t look like Madonna, past or present face.

    I am loving the CDAN blind reveals! I don’t always 100% believe them, but it’s fun to have someone actually tell who they wrote it about.

  11. Really1 says:

    Omg, that is exactly who I think of!
    Christian Bale in American Psycho! I thought I was the only one!

  12. Dani says:

    In some weird way I always wanted Josh Hartnett to play Christian Grey, but he’s as relevant as heat in NY in January.

  13. Kate (newer one) says:

    He is so doting with his daughter. I’m a sucker, but it makes me melt.

    I haven’t been able to take 50 Shades at all seriously since I found out it’s just dirty Twilight fanfiction, with the names altered for copyright reasons. I’m not being a snob about fanfiction (someone sent me a link to a Pride and Prejudice modern-day one which is also a commentary on modern celebrity culture, and I think it’s bloody brilliant; well written, well characterised and really clever, I’d love a movie of that) but why pay for that, when the net has to be awash with free versions? And I don’t get, given it’s apparently BDSM, how they will be able to make a mainstream movie of it. Nor how actors would risk a part in it if they already have a career to jeopardise.

  14. Sweet Dee says:

    I think I need to read the Atheist’s Guide to Christmas, as a former-Christmas-hating-turned-Christmas-loving-atheist.

    Plus I heard about it on my totes fave podcast, thought it sounded great, and promptly forgot about it.

  15. Marty says:

    The horny side of me is very much down with seeing Chris naked and spanking someon(even if it’s not me), the fangirl side thinks this would be a horrible career move. I doubt he’ll do it.

  16. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    CH looks like a mix of Jerry O”Connell and Brad Pitt.

  17. Zombie Shortcake says:

    If that blind item is Brangelina and Colin Farrell, I think the all movie actor who thinks he has other talents but really doesn’t is Billy Bob Thornton. He once dropped out of acting to be a professional musician and during an interview freaked out at Canadian Radio host Gian Ghomeshi for bringing up his acting career. I don’t know how popular his band is…

  18. Tig says:

    I do like Chris- but not for CG. I really hope they end up casting someone not so well known. Ian S- no way- anyway, u can load up on him on VD if he’s your cup if tea.

    One thing that strikes me as funny – this is showing my age- but I grew up reading Harold Robbins, Jacqueline Suzanne, Jackie Collins – I don’t think anyone would argue those were great lit, but don’t recall all the vitriol directed at them.

    • cr says:

      As someone who also read those authors I think part of the reason they didn’t get the vitriol is because I think most of us reading them knew they were fun trashy novels, not great lit.
      I’m not against people reading 50 Shades of )@#(#, but there seems to be this gushing about how great the trilogy is. No, it sucks, enjoy it but expand your reading horizons.

  19. MiMi says:

    Ronan Farrow would be HAWT as CG.

  20. CC says:

    HELL NO!

    I could go on, but this says enough.

    BTW it’s in the sense of “avoid like the plague”. I don’t even care if “so and so” is Christian Grey or not, I just want the actors/actresses I remotely like FAR away from 50 shades of crap.

  21. Chordy says:

    Oh I get it now. Kourtney’s big weight loss cover using the Tracy Anderson method. In the link above, Kim’s leaving a Tracy Anderson gym. I wonder how GOOP feels about Kanye’s babymama and her questionable family getting in on her empire? More importantly, what does Beyonce think? All of a sudden I re-care about Kardashian nonsense.

  22. Mingy says:

    charlie hunnam..that is all

  23. Amy says:

    No way. This guy looks and sounds like an idiot, a total block of wood. Christian Grey is sharp.

  24. missiecoco says:

    I wish I was that Bud bottle

  25. 4evaRedd says:

    With those piercing blue eyes, Taylor Kinney would make a perfect CG.

  26. kelly says:

    Henry Cavill is perfect for CG! Chris looks to much like george w bush that its a turn off!!

  27. Chickenlisus says:

    Looks like he is holding a prop baby. So many Hollyweirds.

  28. Tuxedo Cat says:

    I think Ian Somerhalder and Krysten Ritter would be perfect for the parts. When I read the books I kept getting the image of Anderson Cooper, bc 50 has gray hair, I think. Alex Skaarsgard? would be a choice too. Pierce Brosnan would have been perfect when he was younger.

    Chris Hemsworth is just the wrong look for a high-powered executive workaholic.

  29. A says:

    Yeah no. They have just been tossing random names around for ages, anyway. I’m curious as to why they haven’t had more information about this film, anyway…shouldn’t they have fast tracked it and have a director and some potential stars already? I think 50 Shades of Grey would have been far more suited to a HBO mini series than being played in a theater, anyway. The books are basically the white bread false representation of BDSM, how on earth can they translate that to the big screen without going into NC 17 territory.

  30. Jane says:

    I always pictured Christian Bale in Shades of Grey, but like everyone said, he’s too old.
    Off topic here, but I find it strange that JGL might do a Marvel movie, if he does, does that mean he’s going to be in Avengers 2?

  31. FirstTimer says:

    There should be more pics of Chris holding his baby… He looks so adorable with her.

  32. jax says:

    Ok so im also 1 of many ashamed of having read this bullsh-t trilogy..in my only defense im a person of loyalty so once I read the 1st one I was invested! But anyway I digress as I started reading the 1st few comments here I didn’t even know who “christian bale” was so I googled him and WOW I have 2 agree a realy good suggestion (as far as looks)2 play christian grey!! Ashamed of reading the book NOT ashamed of my ideal of how sexy christian grey is (in my head)

  33. jax says:

    Ok so its official Chris hemsworth is ABSOLUTELY The way 2 go!!!! Ian sommehalder not 2 bad either! Yummy!!!

  34. orion70 says:

    I’ve only ever read excerpts of these books, and mostly via parody sites and reviews, and I have no intention of ever reading them. Just reading the bits and pieces I have read annoy the hell out of me. If nothing else, it sounds like a “dirty book” I might have read when I was 12.

    That said, as soon as I read the first excerpt and CG’s language etc in the book, my first thought was that Scott Disick is Christian Grey.

    I’m pretty sure that’s not a good thing.

  35. RT says:

    I think Alex Skarsgard would be perfekt for Christian Grey, he is so sexy.

  36. jax says:

    Scott Disick??? Nooooo! Like it or not there is a sexy demeanor about the character christian grey…nothing disick (GAY) could ever pull off!!
