Lucy Hale wants to get it on with Ian SomerhalderÂ—watch out, Nina Dobrev!
Luckily she’s only interested in faking a raunchy relationship with Ian in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of GreyÂ—she’s just the latest in a long line of actresses who have expressed an interest in playing Anastasia Steele, a college student who gets seduced by Christian Grey. Christian is a billionaire businessman who is into whips, chains, and other rather shocking sex toys, and the dominant BDSM lover wants to make Anastasia his submissive.
Right now Lucy is starring on the teen-friendly show Pretty Little Liars, so being in a movie like Fifty Shades of Grey would certainly be a big change for the brunette beauty. She knows what she would be in for since she’s already read the book, saying that it left her “speechless.” When asked if she wanted to play Ana, she said that scoring the role would be “frigging awesome.”
And if Lucy Hale did score the part, she wants Ian Somerhalder to play Christian since he has the dark and sexy look needed for the role.
But she and Ian would both have some tough competitionÂ—Lucy’s Pretty Little Liars costar Ashley Benson has also said that she’d like to get in touch with her inner goddess to play Ana, and Alexander Skarsgard thinks that he’d be the perfect Christian.
Just like Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson is probably hoping to move on to more adult projects. She got to play a bad girl alongside Selena Gomez in Spring Breakers, and such a role might give her a bit of an edge over Lucy. But at least Lucy has starred in a rated R movieÂ—the 22-year-old had a cameo in Scream 4.
Lucy certainly has the right look to play Ana, but so do dozens of other popular young starsÂ—Ian Somerhalder’s girlfriend Nina Dobrev would make an excellent Ana if she changes her mind and decides that she doesn’t want Ian to star in the movie without her.
So what do you thinkÂ—does Lucy actually have a shot at winning the role, or does she have too much tough competition?
