’50 Shades of Grey’ Movie: Ian Somerhalder Talks Casting Rumors

Filed in Gather Entertainment News Channel by on September 30, 2012 0 Comments

50 Shades of Grey movie favorite Ian Somerhalder recently talked about Christian Grey. So will his salivating fans like what he has to say about the erotic role?

He didn’t say no to it, so that could be seen as a good thing. He also admitted that he’s been reading 50 Shades on his iPad so that no one will know that he’s reading it – he doesn’t want girlfriend Nina Dobrev poking fun at him for blushing over the erotic novel, after all.

When E! News recently asked the actor if he would play Christian Grey, he didn’t answer the question — instead he let his fans know that he’s already thinking about how awkward his audition will be by saying this:

“I think that’s going to be a very interesting story to tell…It seems like whoever plays that role, it will be very interesting rehearsal time…the audition process is gonna be interesting.”

So it sounds like he’s already thinking about how he’ll make it through the spanking and tampon sex scenes without giggling.

Ian Somerhalder also refused to answer when asked who his perfect Anastasia Steele would be for the 50 Shades of Grey movie. Instead he said this:

“My Anastasia? I don’t know…there are too many [good Hollywood actors] to name.”

It would have been super sweet if he said that Nina Dobrev would make the best Ana, but perhaps he’s actually not into beating women and can’t bear the thought of hurting his girlfriend. Or maybe he enjoys 50 Shades just as much as the books’ female fans – when he was asked about reading the novel, he said, “I get it. I get it. I get why it’s taken off the way it has.”

So since Ian is a real Fifty fan, how could E. L. James and the 50 Shades movie producers not have him at the top of their list?

So do you think that he has a good shot at winning the role? At the very least, whoever films his audition should make him shoot the bathtub or elevator scene and post the video on YouTube.
