While women everywhere have thrown their two cents in about who should be cast in the groundbreaking role of Christian Grey when the film, Fifty Shades of Grey finally hits the big screen, it seems that the master mind behind the mommy porn series has her own ideas. E.L. James has listened to names such as Ian Somerhalder and Ryan Gosling be suggested and she still seems to be holding to the notion that an absolute unknown actor would be even better. She has stated
“that she wants someone relatively unknown for the role, and it wouldn’t come as such a surprise if she made such a bold Mr. Grey casting move.”
When speaking of unknowns a new name has begun to circulate – Devin Paisley, a South African model. Can he act? Well, he hasn’t as of yet and has apparently had absolutely no aspirations to do so either. But the 27-year old is smokin’ hot and at one glance you’ll probably be like me and hope that he’s a natural!
Devin is the typical fairy tale model story. An ex encouraged him to make an appointment at an agency and the rest is history. His face has been linked to some major marketing campaigns for brands like
AlanRed, Jean Paul Sports and Esprit.
What are your thoughts on producers possibly casting an unknown for the film? I guess since E.L. Managed to create a trilogy out of thin air perhaps she’s hoping to work that same kind of magic on those that breathe life into her characters onscreen. Will it work though? Or should she stick with the big names that have already expressed interest in the series? Who is your ideal Christian Grey? Tell us in the comments below!
