Fifty Shades of Grey: Nina Dobrev Praying Lucy Hale Doesn’t Play Anastasia Steele Opposite Ian Somerhalder

Fifty Shades of Grey: Nina Dobrev Praying Lucy Hale Doesn't Play Anastasia Steele Opposite Ian Somerhalder

As we cruise on into 2013 casting rumors are heating up over the much anticipated film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.  Hands down Ian Somerhalder is leading every poll out there as absolute fan favorite for being cast in the role of Christian Grey.  The Vampire Diaries star also shot a series of short films recently that prove the actor most definitely can pull off the role of the sharply dressed, cut throat businessman with a penchant for whips and chains.

His real life love, Nina Dobrev also seems to think that her man would be absolutely perfect for the role, but she is none too happy with one of his potential costars. The role of Anastasia Steele is as pivotal as Mr. Grey and she needs to be portrayed by a young actress that can blur the lines between innocent and hardcore bad girl. A new name has surfaced amongst fans and they could be right, Lucy Hale might just BE Ana. The actress has heated up the screen in cult classic hit show, Pretty Little Liars for the last few seasons and she, no doubt is ready to prove that she can take on a very adult role.

The big problem for Nina? She knows that Lucy is exactly the type of girl that Ian goes for. She’s thin, dark haired, stunning and smart. She and Ian seem to be very tight for now and really seem to enjoy their time together but who can blame Nina for not wanting her man to get down and dirty with Lucy on a film set? Fifty Shades revolves around sex and the whole S&M culture, whomever stars is signing on for months of physicality with their costar so it’s no wonder Nina doesn’t want Lucy snagging the coveted role!

Could you see Ian and Lucy having the kind of chemistry that would spill over into real life? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!

    Hopefully, Ian will NOT get the role of Christian, so it then won’t bother Nina WHO gets cast as Ana. People need to realize that these polls are not going to decide the part of Christian – the man the film team thinks can best play this role will get the part.

      Agreed !
      Ian is not suitable for the role of Mr Grey, he is a crappy actor and looks seedy rather than a sex god as Ana describes him.
      His is also short and has skwinty almond like eyes – not like Mr Grey’s, as described in the trilogy.
      However Matt Bomer fits the description perfectly, his dark an intense eyes, is masculine jaw line, his sexy smirk, thick dark hair, tall, muscular shoulders and a strong chest. No one can fit the part better !

        Except someone who is hotter than Matt Bomer. Matt looks more boy next door handsome. I find nothing handsome about Matt. He has creepy eyes, not intense ones.

    Ian is not leading every poll…Henry Cavill is leading a few big ones too, so clearly you haven’t checked them all. And only a small fraction of fans actually vote when you think about the millions of fans of this trilogy out there. I don’t want Ian, and a lot of other people don’t either. He is not the best actor out there for the role, and he doesn’t even look like Christian.

      Half the polls dont matter. No matter who gets picked, a group of people are going to be mad. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion who they like best. You may not want Ian, but millions of others do. Statistically, he has the largest following for 50 Shades next to Bomer. EL James has already said she is not sure of Ian because of his age. These movies will be filmed as a trilogy, so an older actor may not make the cut. As for what Christian “looks like” whether you read the book or not, no one knows “exactly’ what he looks like since this isnt a picture book and no one is inside EL James head. We only think what he should look like based on description and we as humans all have a different perception of things. So what I think he should look like is different from what many others should look like.

      And Elena looked liked Caroline in the vampire diaries books- blonde hair, blue eyes ‘ice queen’- it’s called creative license!

      And btw- Ian and Henry actually look a LOT more a like than people think- off set. You have to remember seeing them in their roles dictates their behaviour and HOW they look. Off screen they’ve got the ‘tall dark hand some ‘ look and w/a short as Lucy Hale is0,Ian would look taller than he actually is

    omgggg ian is absolutely amaaaaziiinnnngg and perfect for the role and i wish he gets the part! the way he plays his character damon on the vampire diaries pretty much shows he can definitely play the character on christian grey… those smoldering eyes, that sext smirk and have you seen the way he looks in a suit??? WOWWWW! Ive got no words! i also wanted nina to play the character of ana but i’d have ian as christian over havin nina as ana anyday! lucy hale just seems to young to play ana and i think she suits high school and college roles! She has a long way to go as of yet! But another person that would be great for ana is mila kunis! shes gorgeous and i think she can pull it off and also i think her and ian would look perfect together!

    Ian Somerhalder is CLEARLY the winner for the role of Christian Grey….hands down. And he will be perfect!

    ian is not seedy,not crappy at all,he’s handsome,has a relationship with a beautiful girl,he loves women,he does what he can for our environment,let whoever be cast is this role,but don’t put down other people,and Ian being leading most polls in this thing shows that most women find him sexy&attractive..a whole world full of young female fans make him lead in these polls,he’s a good actor,and calling him seedy looking is the funniest thing ever..Ian Somerhalder is a beautiful sexy man and hopefully he won’t play the seedy role of christian grey,can’t imagine him beating women because he’s the most gentleman ever..he’l be just good in beautiful lovemaking scenes.

    Lucy Hale would be PERFECT; that’s actually the person I had in my minds eye as I read the books: and Ian Somerhalder can play boardroom to room of pain better than anyone else I can think of!
