The 50 Shades of Grey movie has certainly inspired some odd casting choices – unlikely names like Justin Bieber, Shia LaBeouf, and Chris Brown have been suggested by some fans. So perhaps it’s not that weird that a reality show star has now been thrown in the mix.
Wetpaint thinks that Teen Mom star Tyler Baltierra could play Christian Grey, but the website’s two main reasons for putting his name out there aren’t all that convincing – he looks decent in a gray suit and is pursuing an acting career. The 20-year-old fiancÃ© of Catelynn Lowell might be considered a good-looking guy and he could turn out to be a pretty good actor. However, he’s way too young to play 28-year-old Christian Grey, and he also has too much of a baby face to portray the brooding billionaire. It’s hard to imagine him beating out popular fan picks that look a little manlier like Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer.
And if Tyler Baltierra did get cast in the 50 Shades of Grey movie, it would upset a lot of people. Catelynn Lowell probably wouldn’t like the thought of her future husband filming steamy sex scenes with a gorgeous actress, and Fifty fans would scoff at the thought of a young, inexperienced actor playing Christian. If a reality show star is going to get the job, then they’d probably prefer to see DietTribe hottie Jessie Pavelka win the role.
Then there’s the group of people who aren’t fans of the show Teen Mom. Some people see it as glamorizing teen pregnancy, so detractors of the show would be mortified to see one of its stars rewarded in such a big way – whoever gets to play the handsome BDSM-practicing businessman is going to get paid very handsomely. 50 Shades is already controversial enough as it is since Christian Grey is an obsessive, possessive control freak who gets pleasure out of inflicting pain on submissive sex slaves.
So do you think that there’s any chance that a guy like Tyler could get cast in the movie, or are some of the suggestions for the role of Christian getting just a bit too strange and silly?
