The 50 Shades of Grey movie casting talk has recently been focused on White Collar star Matt Bomer, but now there’s another actor starting to get a little more buzz – new Superman Henry Cavill.
Matt has been the focus of a lot of Fifty articles lately because American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis claimed that he was too gay to play Christian Grey. He argued that the actor who plays the role should be straight, but later relented and said that a gay actor could play the part. However, he still doesn’t think that Matt Bomer is right for it.
So maybe Ellis will get behind straight star Henry Cavill. According to PolicyMic, a recent Facebook poll has shown that the actor is gaining his own fan following. So does he have what it takes to play the titillating tycoon who makes women swoon?
The hottie played Greek hero Theseus in Immortals and has been cast as Superman in Man of Steel, so right now it seems like he’s hoping to become the next big action star. However, also starred on the TV drama The Tudors, in which he played a playboy who later matured into a family man. He’s also has the right look to play Christian Grey, and at age 29, he won’t be too old to pull off playing a 28-year-old by the time the 50 Shades of Grey movie finally starts filming.
Henry is also British, and as Robert Pattinson has shown, American women love having Brits play the leading men that they lust after most (maybe it’s because they love getting to hear their accents during interviews).
So do you think that Henry is the perfect Christian?
