Ian Somerhalder Wants In On The 50 Shades Film!!!!

| Filed under: Yummy Yummy ScrewFilm FlickersRyan SeacrestIan SomerhalderBookz

Our hearts just gave out!

While live on Ryan Seacrest's radio show this morning, the sultry Ian Somerhalder revealed that he's very, very, VERY interested in making the upcoming 50 Shades of Grey film.

We're just going to step back and let you process this for a minute….

Okay, we're back! Listen, we want this just as much as you do! Ian would be the PERFECT Christian Grey with his chiseled looks and smoldering blue eyes. And we know he can play naughty (and nice) very, very well.

Oh, what we would do to be in his Red Room of Pain.

Wait, what?

Just thinking out loud here, people!

Anyway, check out the saucy grin he gets on his face when asked by Ryan about being cast in the movie (above). Mmm, so delicious.

    I completely disagree…. maybe he could be Elliot but definitely NOT Christian Grey. He is not as hot as they describe CG….Henry Cavill is wayyyyy more suited for the role of Christian Grey.

  2. 2

    NOOOO!!! He could be Elliot. Henry Cavill for Christian Grey please!!

  3. 3

    noit big enough Name…Im thinking a choice no one pick..a person that wants to get rid of High School Musical tag…ZAC EFRON love to seem play a real bad boy!

  4. 4

    Re: jedimaster12 – he was in lost and the vampire diaries…he's pretty well known

    Re: jedimaster12 – Zac Efron?! He's attractive, but I like my leading men to be at least knee high to a grasshopper! I have yet to read the book, but a friend of mine has and is telling me about it and I think Ian would be a good choice. Maybe Lucy Hale could be his leading lady? She looks much younger and naive.

    I read this story when it was still on fanfiction.net (as "Master of the Universe") and always had a difficult time picturing Robert Pattinson (or Edward Cullen) as the male lead. Reading the book again now, I actually went with Ian as Christian in my head (talk about timely article!) and think he would be perfect!

    Re: meister – Not to mention that this will be his first role as a leading man in a major motion picture so he can't really go in requesting top dollar. And since this is a book that was based on a Twilight fanfic, I am sure they want some of the same box office success. Half of the reason Twilight was called a phenomenon was because the first one was low budget and the actors were lesser known. Ian is already more famous than Rob and Kristen were when they first started off so they definitely don't need to go any bigger with the names. This book apparently started off with a small cult following and that is half the charm so to have a huge star like Ryan Gosling or Channing Tatum play Christian Grey would kill some of the magic.

    I am 1 chapter into the book and was wondering who would be good for this role. I googled it and the minute I saw this article I almost dropped my phone. Absolutely PERFECT!!! I will finish the book picturing Ian and drooling.

  9. G. says – reply to this


    I read this as fanfic in its original form too. It cannot be someone with a babyface. Ian Somerhalder would be good in the role I think. Henry Cavill is too old. So is Michael Fassbender. My first pick though is James Deen, unknown enough to mainstream, well known in porn - huge female following. Women would be coming out in droves not just for the movie but for him! They should at least make him a consultant.

  10. 10

    Yes, Ian!!! Please please please! Mila Kunis would look nice with Ian but she might be too exotic looking? I really don't know who would make a good Ana

  11. 11


  12. 12

    No!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He's too odd looking for Christian Grey! Not smoldering in the least! Zac Efron would be good! He can actually act and be sexy at the same time-which if this movie is going to be a good quality film,they would need someone like Zac to make it not softcore porn!

  13. deb says – reply to this


    Nope! Henry Cavill, all the waaaay!! Please!!

  14. 14

    Ian is way wrong for the role, too identifiable as Damian in the Viampire Diaries. My choice would be Alex Pettyfer or Henry Cavill. They are both crazy hot and sexy.

  15. Kylie says – reply to this


    He is PERFECT for the role! Watch Vampire diaries and if you say he isn't perfect, you clearly have absolutely no pulse!

  16. 16

    He'd be perfect!!!

  17. melissa says – reply to this


    For the love of God, yes! Please! (sir) Ian Somerhalder is the hottest man alive. Nobody does the smolder better than him. When I first started reading this book, Ian is exactly who entered my mind as being a perfect Christian! Those Eyes! And have you all seen this man in a sex scene? On the CW he makes it look hot, imagine what he could do in an adult film. Holy hell.

  18. jessica says – reply to this


    interesting idea but it has to be henry cavill as christian grey

  19. Liza says – reply to this


    If you've read the books then you would know that this is not going to be an easy role to fill. With that being said I think Paul Walker would be the perfect Christian Grey. He is tall like the character, can be sexy as hell, but still maintain those boyish qualities that the character has. He is soooo hot. Check out his website… Laters Baby!

  20. Mei says – reply to this


    Ian will be perfect for the role. While I'm reading the book, I picture Christian Grey being someone like Ian. Now he has shown interests, hopefully he gets it. My only concen is that he may be too old to play 27? :(

  21. 21

    Re: fulana – Christian Grey I pushing 30 and Zac barely look like his 25 years let alone 30! Nor does Zac look like he could dominate anyone! Ian has smoldering down to and art. And Mila doesn't look innocent enough to be Ana. That Lucy Hale chick from that little liars show would be believable. Maybe even Lily Collins.

  22. Nicole says – reply to this


    Christian Grey is an African American man… shouldn't he be played by an African American actor?

  23. 23

    Noooo!!! I don't think he's right. I agree with everyone …. Elliot is right for him.. I like Cole Hauser I right… When I was reading the books I imagined him from 2fast 2 furious! And I still do. Im on the 3rd book now…. I never wanna finish what will I read next

  24. faithxox says – reply to this


    Ian is perrrrffecct to play fifty! He's who I imagined when I was reading the series, I mean have you seen his smirk? And those eyes?! Heck yes, he's the perfect Christian Grey! But I get where people are coming from with wanting Henry Cavill, he's HOT! But Zac Efron…the thought of Zac Efron dominating anyone is laughable. He's cute, but definitely not Fifty. As for Anastasia I was thinking Alexandra Daddario(from the Percy Jackson movie) she's got the eyes & the innocent look…

  25. Lisa says – reply to this


    He's perfect for the role of Christian! Absolutely believable. Love it!

  26. Eryn says – reply to this


    Zac Efron is way to nice to play this lunatic! And to well known. This guy sounds perfect!

  27. Angela says – reply to this


    I totallyh disagree also. Christian Grey has copper hair, grey eyes and is definitely described as hotter than Ian and taller. Ryan Gosling, now that would be a perfect Christian Grey.

  28. 28

    I think he would be amazing but I can see Ryan Gosling doing it too. In thinking of these men I'm trying to think of good leading ladies, I think it should be someone young maybe Jennifer Lawerance or lea Michelle if she was sexed up some

  29. 29

    Anyone who has seen Ian act in Vampire Diaries knows that he could totally play the part of Christian.

  30. Bel7680 says – reply to this


    Matt Boomer would be my pick.

  31. G. says – reply to this


    Re: Nicole – Are you high? Have you read the books? He is NOT african American. You can have a crackhead mother and not be a minority.

  32. Sunny542 says – reply to this


    He's would be perfect as Christian!! I was picturing Max Irons as Christian though. He has the messy copper hair and he's so hot.

    Lucy Hale would be a good choice for Ana, but I think Felicity Jones would be perfect!

  33. 33

    for the love of sanity, stop playing with yourself ladies…the Book is a P0rno…only P0rn actors can play that

  34. breana says – reply to this


    Re: Liza
    Paul Walker is a terrible actor…there'd no way he has the acting chops or range to play Christian.

  35. bubbles says – reply to this


    Ian is Christian Grey…reading the book…imagining him

  36. 36

    1. Christian Grey is not black/African American…

    2. Ian is hot but he looks too old, in my opinion. CG is supposed to be 27, correct? I think it's going to be difficult to find someone who can pull off the sexy yet still young enough to look mid-late twenties. Maybe Chase Crawford? Although he may still be too baby faced.

  37. 37

    I could definitely see Ian in this role. I do still see Gosling, Pine, or Alexander Skarsgaard.

  38. Lindsay says – reply to this


    ARMIE HAMMER!!! HE would be the perfect Christian Grey. His voice, looks, and the way he speaks is exactly how I picture Mr. Grey.

  39. 39

    ARMIE HAMMER! HE would be the perfect Christian Grey. The way he speak, his voice, and his looks are exactly how Mr. Grey is depicted.

  40. 40

    ARMIE HAMMER, ARMIE HAMMER, ARMIE HAMMER!!!! He's is exactly how Christian Grey is described. His voice and look would be AMAZING for this part.

  41. 41

    He is ridiculously gorgeous.

  42. scgirll says – reply to this


    Two words: Jared Leto.

  43. Missy says – reply to this


    OMG! Of course, how could I forget about Ian!! He's perfect - he has the piercing eyes, he can play saddistic and loving simultaneously (we've already seen this in TVD). He is the absolute right choice! I'm on book #2 now (incase you guys didn't know it's a trilogy). And I will now imagine Christian as Ian. Yes!

  44. amac says – reply to this


    No!!!!! Ian does not fit the part!!!!!
    Henry Cavill or Matt Bomer as Christian.
    Alexis Bledel as Anastasia.

  45. LEX says – reply to this


    i thought i read christian was black

  46. RaychelMB says – reply to this


    YUMMM!!! I think my hands haven't stopped shaking. Yes please! Please PLEASE put him in the red room of pain! I can only imagine his Kinky F'ery and hanging pants… silver ties.. oh please make that dream come true.!

  47. EGB says – reply to this


    I would love to see matt bomer play christian grey. ultimate SWOON. though he might be a little old to play a 28 yo but would still love to see him in the Red Room of Pain!

  48. 48

    Of course, he wants to be in it. He wants to be relevant…to be talk about. As an actor, this could be his ONLY chance from crossing over from hot tv actor to a hot movie star.

  49. 49

    Re: LEX

    Definitely not.

  50. Critter says – reply to this


    Ian can be Elliot, Garrett Hedlund for Christian please! I love Zooey Deschanel, but she's too old for Ana. Shailene Woodley would be a good choice.

  51. Keri says – reply to this


    Ian Somerhalder is the perfect Christian Grey!! He has the sexiest facial expressions, the man exudes sex!!! I want Ian as Christian…..OMG I hope my dreams come true!!!

  52. Keri says – reply to this


    I think that this role may have been made for Ian! He is sexy, can be adorable, he doesn't look to old, and can do serious in such a HOT way! Robert Pattinson was 23 and Edward is 17. Besides when books are made into movies there is room for interpretation.

  53. Ella says – reply to this


    Henry Cavill absolutely!!!<3

  54. Babes10 says – reply to this


    Ryan gosling!!!!!!

  55. beesyousee2 says – reply to this




    anyone but the first two would do an amazing job. Henry Cavill is kinda funny looking. I am okay with Ian!
    Can't wait to see who will get the part and when is the movie coming out!??
    Oh, and NO DAKOTA FANNING she is a baby!! WTH!?

  56. Ladybug says – reply to this


    Ian is too short… christian Grey is a tall man in the book and as it should be in the movie

  57. katidid213 says – reply to this


    Ian is HOTTTTT. Would be perfect. If not him, Paul Walker. Only 2 I can even fathom in this role.

    Ana could be Alexis Bledel, Amanda Seyfried, Alexandra Deddario, or maybe even Megan Fox or Miranda Kerr

  58. your mom says – reply to this


    I think Ryan Phillipe would be great as Christian. Remember him in Cruel Intentions? Perfect! And Amanda Seyfried for Ana.

  59. Anita says – reply to this


    Henry Cavill was born to play CG!!!

  60. DonDyva12 says – reply to this


    All I know is when I started reading this book..Ian was the first person I imagined and to make it so bad all I thought was ooh the guy from vampire diaries..so yes he's my choice….all I know is whoever gets this part better be sexy as hell or I can't do it…as for the leading lady idk n don't really care lol nah but I'm more interested in CGs role

  61. honeybee says – reply to this


    Re: Mei – shane west would be phenomenal for the role of christian grey!!

  62. honeybee says – reply to this


    Shane West is definitely Christian Grey to me!

  63. megan says – reply to this


    How about Ian Harding for Christian Grey? He's hot, he's young, he's a new actor. He would be the best choice for sure.

  64. 2cupcakes says – reply to this


    Ok, really don't get all the hype over Ian. Yes agreed he's good looking but not Christian grey good looking. And yes he is on tv but a trilogy that needs a multifaceted actor? And hello universal and focus films, if you want this movie to be taken seriously, then you'd be smart to stay away from the teeny bopper actors and have any link to vampires werewolves and the like. Not trying to bea Baer on Ian but the role of grey needs to be carried thru 3movies. And I think all the haters, I mean critics are just waiting to pounce once casting is made. I'd rather see an actor a bit older but could pul off mr greys' intensity and 50 shades of fucked up like Christian bale…now that I'd pay to enter the red room of pain!
