’50 Shades of Grey’ Movie: Chace Crawford and Shailene Woodley as Christian and Anastasia?

Filed in Gather Entertainment News Channel by on August 1, 2012 0 Comments

The 50 Shades of Grey movie has inspired many lists of actors and actresses that would make the perfect Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, but some of the stars that make these lists are getting rather repetitive.

Chris Hemsworth, Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer, and Alexander Skarsgard are popular choices to play Christian, while Lucy Hale, Emma Watson, Alexis Bledel, and Emmy Rossum are all Ana favorites.

MSN has included quite a few of these stars on a list of twenty actors and actresses that could play the billionaire with a frightening fetish for inflicting pain and his naïve young sex slave who gets addicted to the pleasure that comes along with it. However, the list includes two slightly more interesting options for the 50 Shades of Grey movie.

20-year-old actress Shailene Woodley is one option. She played teen mom Amy Juergens on the silly ABC Family show The Secret Life of the American Teenager before scoring a role that was a potential career-changer.

Shailene earned the opportunity to work with acclaimed director/screenwriter Alexander Payne on the movie The Descendants, in which she also got the honor of playing George Clooney’s daughter. The role won the young actress quite a bit of critical acclaim.

Now Shailene might be looking for a role that will catapult her career to the next level (money-wise, at least), and 50 Shades would definitely do that – whoever plays Ana in the movie could end up being the Kristen Stewart. And now that Kristen has marred her career with a cheating scandal, her forsaken fans need a new actress to admire and envy. Will Shailene Woodley be that actress?

It depends on if she’s comfortable doing tons of sex scenes and nude scenes, something she doesn’t have much experience with. The same thing goes for the actor that ends up playing Christian Grey – not every guy out there is going to jump at the chance to film racy scenes with a beautiful actress since things are probably going to get rather awkward and uncomfortable.

MSN suggests another TV star, Gossip Girl hottie Chace Crawford, for the role of Christian Grey. The Ian Somerhalder lookalike is definitely good-looking enough to play Christian, and he’s used to playing a character with lots of money. The actor’s Gossip Girl costars Blake Lively and Katie Cassidy have both been suggested for the role of Kate Kavanagh, Ana’s blonde bombshell BFF.

The only problem with Chace Crawford is that he might be just a bit too pretty and boyish-looking to play Christian, and too many GG fans will probably still see him as Nate Archibald.

So what do you think of Shailene and Chace for the 50 Shades film?
