’50 Shades of Grey’ Movie: Zac Efron or Logan Lerman as Christian Grey?

Filed in Gather Entertainment News Channel by on August 27, 2012 0 Comments

The 50 Shades of Grey movie has inspired fans to create lots of lists of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele favorites, but there’s one other intriguing role that may need to be cast.

In the book, dominant Christian explains to Ana why he desires to make her his submissive sex slave. When he was a teen he was seduced by his mother’s older friend Elena, whom Ana jokingly dubs “Mrs. Robinson.” She turned Christian into her submissive, and when he got older, he decided to turn the tables by spanking young, pretty brunettes who reminded him of his crackhead mother. If the filmmakers decide to show a flashback of Christian and Elena, then someone is going to have to play the younger version of Christian Grey.

PolicyMic has come up with a list of 25 actors under 25 that could play the small role in the 50 Shades of Grey movie, but only a few of the guys look enough like the older actors that Fifty fans are rooting for.

Ian Somerhalder is a big favorite for the part, and the guys on the list that could pull off playing younger versions of him include Zac Efron and Percy Jackson & the Olympians star Logan Lerman. Logan could probably also pull off playing a younger version of Matt Bomer since Matt and Ian look a bit similar. This would make Alexandra Daddario a very interesting choice for the role of Anastasia Steele—she starred with Logan Lerman in Percy Jackson and with Matt Bomer in White Collar.

Harry Potter baddie Tom Felton might be able to pull off playing a younger version of True Blood hottie Alexander Skarsgard, who is another heavy favorite for the role of Christian. However, The Hunger Games actor Alexander Ludwig might be a better option.

With a hair color change, baby-faced Friday Night Lights star Jeremy Sumpter could pull off playing the teen version of Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill. There’s not really anyone on the list created by PolicyMic that looks like Ryan Gosling, but perhaps Kick-Ass actor Aaron Johnson resembles him enough for the role.

So which pair would you like to see as the younger and older versions of Christian Grey in the 50 Shades movie?
