Could William Levy dance his way into the hearts of “mommy porn” fans everywhere by playing Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie?
The telenovela star that finished third on Dancing with the Stars is one of the more interesting options on a recent list of actors who are favorites for the role of the bondage-craving billionaire with a Red Room of Pain.
The Socialite Life list includes The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder, who has actively been campaigning for the part; True Blood hunk Alexander Skarsgard; and The Notebook actor Ryan Gosling.
White Collar star Matt Bomer has also emerged as a pretty heavy favorite among Fifty Shades of Grey fans, while Alexander Pettyfer is one of the more surprising choices on the list – it’s not hard to see why women can picture him playing Christian Grey because of his good looks and his Magic Mike stripper role, but he’s just a little bit too young and pretty to play a 28-year-old who had a rough childhood.
Michael Fassbender has the opposite problem since he’s way too old for the part, but the Shame star certainly doesn’t have any issue with letting it all hang out. And the X-Men: First Class actor isn’t the only superhero star that makes an appearance on the list – The Avengers god Chris Hemsworth and future Superman Henry Cavill also have their fair share of fangirls.
Robert Pattinson was also included on the list of favorites, but author E.L. James has already said no to him and Kristen Stewart starring in the movie. So perhaps Rob’s costar Kellan Lutz can snag the lead.
William Levy is one of the more interesting names on the list because he hasn’t really acted in any American movies (although he did appear on the show Single Ladies), and he doesn’t have as large of a fan following as some of the other actors mentioned. However, he probably did get some mommies fantasizing about him with his sexy DWTS dances, so maybe he’s the perfect guy to star in the mommy porn movie.
He also shares some of the facial features with the Christian Grey composite sketch that is floating around – he can look a bit like a young Brad Pitt; he has large lips like Val Kilmer; and his jaw line is a perfect match. Plus William Levy probably shouldn’t mind showing a little skin since he’s a former underwear model.
Another interesting option on the list that hasn’t been mentioned as much is Colin Egglesfied. The All My Children actor looks like a combination of Tom Cruise and John Stamos, so obviously he’s got the swoon-worthy actor composite thing going for him, too.
So which of these guys do you think would make the best Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey?
