The ’50 Shades of Grey’ Movie Gets Another Christian Option: Ryan Guzman

Filed in Gather Entertainment News Channel by on August 13, 2012 0 Comments

The 50 Shades of Grey movie just got one more potential Christian Grey!

Some Fifty fans think that Step Up star Channing Tatum would make the perfect Christian, but he has said that he’ll only play the part if his wife Jenna Dewan gets to play Anastasia Steele. However, the star of the latest Step Up movie, Step Up Revolution, is willing and ready to play the seductive billionaire.

According to Celebuzz, Ryan Guzman said this when asked about the 50 Shades movie:

“Yeah, for sure. Let’s do it.”

His costar Kathryn McCormick was a little more bashful about BDSM. Here’s what she said about starring in the film based on the naughty novel:

“I think I would have to let him have his own journey with that.”

Luckily it doesn’t look like Ryan Guzman will have any competition from Channing Tatum for the 50 Shades of Grey movie—it’s doubtful that the Magic Mike hunk will get cast because of his stipulation that Jenna also has to star in it. However, Ryan does have plenty of competition since Fifty fans already have a long list of favorites they want to see win the part—Matt Bomer, Ian Somerhalder, and Alexander Skarsgard have been mentioned over and over again. Some other favorites that haven’t gotten quite as much buzz are DietTribe star Jessie Pavelka, Teen Wolf actor Tyler Hoechlin, and older actors like Jared Leto and Ryan Phillippe.

Since Step Up Revolution is Ryan’s first movie, it might seem like he would have a hard time scoring a coveted role like that of Christian Grey. However, Robert Pattinson wasn’t a big star when he landed the role of Edward Cullen in Twilight—before he became a vampire, he was best known for playing wizard Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter movies.

Ryan might not have much experience with scary-looking sex toys, but as a former underwear model, he shouldn’t have any problem stripping down and looking sexy. He also won’t have an issue with getting sweaty and extremely close to a female costar because of his dance background.

So what do you think—could Ryan play Christian?
