Fifty Shades of Grey Movie: Devin Paisly Replaces Ian Somerhalder as E.L James’ Choice for Christian Grey

Fifty Shades of Grey Movie: Devin Paisly is E.L James Choice for Christian Grey

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 circulateDevin 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!

    Well, I don’t want Matt or Ian to play Christian (I’m all for Henry), but with that aside, I completely agree about casting. The author said in the beginning she’d take our thoughts into consideration and it would be a bad move on their part to ever go back on that. Yes only 1 guy can be Christian, therefore there would be heartbreak amongst fans regardless, but if they were to disregard our slew of choices altogether she’d have even more pissed off fans and we are the ones who determine the success of this movie. It’s one thing for the people we want to read and lose out or not be interested at all, but it’s another for the team to disregard us completely. They need to involve the fans more. We’ve had no real news lately, and they’re being very coy and vague…causing all kinds of speculation. We decide how this goes, so it would be in their best interest to start including us. That’s how I feel at least.

    Matt bomer is definatly the best actor for the role!

    He is good looking, but looks too much like Paul Wesley. So, I say no to him and a big “YES!!” to Ian Somerhalder.

    Don’t like Ian as Christian. This new guy Devin is not tycoon Christian martial. Lets give Chris Helmsley a chance to prove to be the Christian we want to play the part not those other so called hot models. I think Chris is up for the challenge.

  • Cassie

    Totally Devin. I agree that an unknown should play the role. Well known actors carry to much weight.

  • SLM

    Devin? With that hair? OMG no dont do it. He is too young and not even credible as a billionaire with a twisted and tortured mind!

  • Steph

    In my opinion this guy isn’t even good looking, If he is picked I will just stick with the books!

    HELL NO! FIRST HE LOOKS LIKE A EDWARD CULLEN WANNA BE- SECOND HE DOES NOT HAVE THE LOOK OF CHRISTIAN GREY IN MY EYES AT ALL! HE LOOKS TOO YOUNG AND DEFINATELY DOES NOT SEEM TO BE THE KINKY TYPE

    I don’t believe a regular movie theatre would be able to show the movie if it truly captures all that the book is! XXXXXX
