Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner! Though an official announcement has yet to be made on who will win the coveted role of Christian Grey, in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, I believe I (and many others) have made that decision for them. It definitely has to be Ian Somerhalder.
US Magazine posted a pic of Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer together at the People’s Choice Awards and as much as it pains me to say this…Ian is the better Christian. My precious Matt just does not have age on his side.
In a previous assessment I was 100% Team Bomer, but after seeing this picture I’ve gotta go with my gut. Don’t get me wrong, Ian isn’t perfect with his Cheshire cat-esque grin, but he is close. I can definitely see him in the “red room of pain” with Anastasia Steele and I can see him turn into Christian the Submissive (I hope I didn’t spoil anything for you). I can hear him say “Laters, baby” and I can hear him describe Charlie Tango. Is Ian Somerhalder Christian Grey in your eyes?
Okay, I don’t want to give too much away, but you get my point. So Ian Somerhalder has my vote, but who will his leading lady be? Who will portray Anastasia Steele, the main character? Who has what it takes to portray an innocent college student who only wants romance and a storybook ending? Actually, what I truly want to know is who the supporting cast will be? Who will play Ana’s BFFs, Katherine Kavanagh and Jose Rodriguez? Who will play Christian’s brother, Elliott?
So readers, do you have any guesses on who our future superstars will be? Can someone please tell me when filming will begin? Better yet, can someone please tell me what the release date will be? These people better get it together and strike while the iron is hot, because I am losing patience as the days pass and that will soon turn in to loss of interest.
