Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder Split Crushing their Chances at Fifty Shades of Grey Roles?

Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder Split Crushing their Chances at Fifty Shades of Grey Roles?

There have been several rumors about Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder being the top choices for a possible Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Till date, we have not received any sort of confirmation from the producers that they’re even looking at specific actors, but both Nina and Ian have topped fan lists to play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.

While that is very, very far from a confirmation, it means that they will at least be looked at when it comes time for casting. However, will the recent news of their breakup change that?

We know that fans really, really, really like them together for the lead roles in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’. We know that the producers have yet to really audition anybody, although plenty of rumors state that Ian’s already gone in to meet with E.L. James and the producers. Obviously, Nina and Ian have chemistry, and it would have been easy to buy them together in another project.

But now that their breakup’s gone public, it seems unlikely enough that they will be able to maintain a professional working relationship on ‘The Vampire Diaires’, much less another movie. Obviously, the solution would only be to cast one of them, if either one of them will be cast at all. Of course, that would ruin a lot of fans’ ideals as their perfect Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, but there’s nothing that can be done about that.

So if you had to choose between Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey or Nina Dobrev as Anastasia Steele, who would you choose? For what it’s worth, I think Ian is a lot more interested in starring in the film than Nina is, and he’s also much better suited to the role anyways. Let us know what you think in the comments.

    Ian of course!

    Nina looks nothing like Anastasia. She isn’t a favorite compared to others, like Emilia Clarke or Alexis Bledel. Nina was only thrown in because she was dating Ian Somerhalder. They wouldn’t have done the movie together anyway. I don’t even think Ian is right for the role. With his age and lacking in areas physically they’ll likely go with someone else who fits the criteria better.

    Ian… and Alexis. In my humble opinion how can anyone improve on that… sultry chemistry… Wild guess, Ian was cast (shhhhh…don’t talk) and his girlfriend said no. It would be… insane… for him to turn down a roll that holds the potential of catapulting his career into A List choices… he had to say yes, and any girlfriend would…flip out…thinking of her man doing…things…like that…with anyone else. They did the right thing to let go before 50… If they are meant to be together…after… should he be given the part, which he should…then they will…no other actor has the eyes, smile and intensity for the part…And Alexis? No other actress possesses that level of angelic beauty both her outer…and inner… beauty. EL James… Well done!

  7. D.S. says:

    Nina has nothing to to with Anastasia adn cast Ian already..He is Christian!

  8. Joanna Clark says:

    I would definitely favor Ian to play Christian Grey. I would not pick Nina for the female lead. I like either Emilia Clarke or Alexis Bledel.

  9. Guest says:

    Lol. It’s says that can’t maintain a working relationship on tvd. Stfu. There like best friends.

  10. Ashley Dickerson says:

    Ian for sure. Alexis Bledel for Ana! She embodies Ana.

    Ian of course! He looks like the part and he is kind of living the part.
