Alexander Skarsgard As Christian Grey?! Yes, Please!

| Filed under: RihannaFilm FlickersTwilightChris PineAlexander SkarsgårdTrue BloodBookz

Alexander Skarsgard Fifty Shades

From Battleships to sex chambers…Alexander Skarsgard wants in on ALL the action!

In a recent interview, the actor admits he hasn’t heard of the erotic novel, Fifty Shades Of Grey yet…but would definitely be interested in taking part in the steamy lead role on the big screen!

Intrigued by character Christian Grey, the True Blood star said:

“He’s got a sex chamber? My character has that on True Blood. He’s got his little dungeon. I was born to play that part.”

Um….yes, please?!?!?

Looks like Alexander might have some competition, though — last week we told you how actor and fellow hottie, Chris Pine, was also eyeing up the role!

Skarsgard is currently gearing up for the return of True Blood’s fifth season on June 10 and the premiere of upcoming flick, Battleship, starring Rihanna!

Alexander may have just been playing around with the idea of going after the role, but he better end up being for realz!

Don't you dare play with our hearts like that, Alex!!!!

    Re: Michmasterflex

    Me too! Lol. I'm still all for Ian Somerhalder, but really I'd be cool with Danny Devito over this guy!



  7. 7

    I have been watching New Girl and like Dermot Malroney. I know he's not copper haired or the right age but damn he's hot!

  8. Jen says – reply to this

    Ian Somerhalder would be a much better choice!

  9. Chefvi77 says – reply to this

    There are WAYYYYYY too many other choices and Chris Pine is NOT ONE OF THEM. Christian is tall and Chris Pine is a short ass mofo!!!!

  10. Erin says – reply to this

    No! It has to be someone with dark wavy hair.

  11. laowl says – reply to this


    11

    Um, not even close.

  12. Chefvi77 says – reply to this


    12

    And they won't take anyone like Ian Sommerholder either AGAIN SHORT GUY!!! Also he works for a teenage show and they can't chance him being a kinky freak!!!



  13. 13

    NOOOOOOOOO, YUCK….I vote for Charlie Hunnam!!!

  14. Whatever101 says – reply to this


    14

    I've been picturing Ryan Gosling in this role for a while now… not sure why though.



  15. 15

    EEEEWWWWWWWWWWWW eeeeWWWWWWW eeeWWWWWW…. please no!



  16. 16

    he is not born to play the part, go in a cave and never come out!

  17. greeneyes says – reply to this


    17

    The book was based on Robert Pattinson (won't happen…too smart for that )……. but that who should play him period!!! Bottom line…can't see this movie translating to the bog screen……..NC 17 without a doubt……..major re-write to make it work.



  18. 18

    This is too real. I vote YES.

  19. Hillary says – reply to this


    19

    Damn, I think he would be yummy in the part! Chris Pine, no, not so much

  20. Lara says – reply to this


    20

    Not just No.. BUT HEEEEEEELLLLLLLLL NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!



  21. 21

    I love Alexander, but he's not right for the part. Christian is in his late 20's and Alex doesn't looks his age, mid-30's. I really do think they need to cast unknowns for the characters of Christian and Anastasia, because when actors are in popular shows, you end up watching the movie and thinking you're seeing Eric or Damon.

  22. Danielle says – reply to this


    22

    OH HELL NO. NOT EVEN CLOSE to hot enough to play Christian.

  23. fiera says – reply to this


    23

    Oh yes please!!! He would be great for the role.



  24. 24

    No! Ian Somerhalder has been the best bet. Ryan Goslin won't happen because he's already a big name in the movie industry and this book is cheese, smutty cheese, but cheese nonetheless. They are going to try and go the Twilight route and pick someone who doesn't already have huge movie star power.



  25. 25

    I like Alexander in True Blood, But the perfect Mr. Grey would be Henry Cavill!!!!!

  26. Nicole says – reply to this


    26

    I don't know why but my Christian is Adam Levine. I can't watch the Voice now without smirking!!!

  27. chelsea says – reply to this


    27

    Hell No!!!! He looks way older than 27. Ian Somerhalder is the better choice. His eyes say it all!



  28. 28

    Ugh…really? There is nobody else that could do this like maybe: Chris Pine, Chris Hemsworth, Ian Somerhalder, Zach Levi even Brad Pit (I know, too old, but he's HOT) Even Daniel Craig works for me, but not Skarsgard. No dis on him, it's just not that type of role.

  29. bonniedee1965 says – reply to this

    Re: Jen – Ian Somerhalde would be a MUCH MUCH better Christian *drools*



  30. 30

    It just hit me who would be the best for this role and I thought of Josh Duhamel. He's tall, he's hot, he has lovely eyes. He would rock as Christian Grey. Forget all the others. Just go with Josh.

  31. Alicia says – reply to this


    31

    NONONOooooo Ian Somerhalder was born to play this part. I couldnt imagine anyone but him playing Christian Grey.



  32. 32

    Re: NorCaliAli – Ok, ok, Josh is hot, I will give you that and whoever doesn't think so is blind and stupid! But I don't know if he could pass for 27/28. But he's been the best name I have heard for Christian Grey NEXT to Ian Somerhalder.

  33. Arches says – reply to this


    33

    I had Chris hemsworth in mind when they started talking about turning the book into a movie but when I read other people's responses, Ian Sonerholder TOTALLY fits the part. His eyes says it all!!! Maybe gain more muscle for the part? Otherwise perfect fit!!! I wouldn't watch it if it was another actor,ESP this guy Skarsgard or Pine. Don't want to ruin my idea of Christian Grey!

  34. yup says – reply to this


    34

    I liked him once, in GAGA's video and GAGA does no wrong in my eyes…..Otherwise, this guy is just plain homely!!! Look at the tumor like thing on his eyebrow…his eyes….ugh, he does not look well.



  35. 35

    PLEASE YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. penny says – reply to this


    36

    I still say Ian Somerholder.. he just has that swag and smolder… and his eyes! perfect for christian grey!

  37. chloecoco says – reply to this


    37

    CHRISTIAN GREY NEEDS TO BE PLAYED BY TREVOR DONOVAN!! HELLLOOOOOOOOO



  38. 38

    No no no no no! I know I am in the minority but I don't find him attractive, I also think he looks far too old to be playing 27 y/o Christian. I think they should be going for an unknown.



  39. 39

    Pea Brain P0rno for Middle aged women..distgusting



  40. 40

    I'm sorry, where in the book did it say was ugly and old???? I better reread it. He has a decent body but I seem to be the only one that thinks he is fugly!! I would rather see Trevor Donovan or a no name play him. I don't even think Ian Somerhalder fits the description.

  41. Heter says – reply to this


    41

    I say they cast Pauly Shore!!!



  42. 42

    I think Wentworth Miller would be perfect for the role of Christian Grey.

  43. madbonna says – reply to this


    43

    Ryan Seacrest wants Ian Sommerhalder for the role, they talked about it together in an interview last month. I think that'd be a better choice.

  44. shontapl says – reply to this


    44

    I vote for Ryan Gosling. He's smoking hot. He can be intense.

  45. Marlene Emmett says – reply to this


    45

    Perez:
    Alexander would be PERFECT for the orle of Christian Grey!!!
    TRUEBLOOD fans will be behind his quest for this role!!!
    And when we want something we'll go out of our way to see it happen!!!
    We suggested Joe Manganiello after seeing him on the website
    "The Most Beautiful Man" when they were casting Alcide.
    AND they listened to the fans!!!

  46. Rachel says – reply to this


    46

    Nooo! I always imagined Sam Page playing Christian Grey. For those who don't know who he is, he plays Greg Harris (Joan's husband) in Mad Men. Now HE is a perfect choice.



  47. 47

    Nooo! I don't see Alexander Skarsgard as Christian Grey at all. I always imagined Same Page playing Christian Grey. For those who don't know who he is, he plays Greg Harris (Joan's husband) in Mad Men. Now HE is a perfect choice!

  48. wendy says – reply to this


    48

    I think Matt Bomer would be a better fit for Christian than any of the others that have shown interest.



  49. 49

    I know I'm a guy, but I don't understand why everyone thinks he so hot.

  50. karen says – reply to this


    50

    Colin Egglesfield would mak a great Christian Grey



  51. 51

    I like Alexander but Ian is purrrrrrrfect!!!

  52. L says – reply to this


    52

    Alex Pettyfer !! He looks great with brown hair and I could picture him looking great with the grey smoldering eyes as well. Hes lean and tall like Christian should be AND he seems like he has a bad ass side to him that would come across just right for that part. The could also age him a bit with the formal attire. Emma Roberts for Ana !

  53. alissa says – reply to this


    53

    NO WAY. he's hot but he is definitely not christian grey.



  54. 54

    He would be perfection! OMFG! Sooooo Hot!

  55. slc says – reply to this


    55

    Okay if he's cast as Grey than obviously the movie makers were sharing the crack with Christian's mother!!!!!!!!!!!! So ewwwwwww. People everywhere are wanting this movie so bad don't kill the magic!!



  56. 56

    Now HE'S A GREAT CHOICE!!!Sexy as hell!

  57. Carmel33 says – reply to this


    57

    I totally agree!!! I read all three books and this is who I had as my visual. Love, Love, Love!!!

  58. dshgfdjsst says – reply to this


    58

    THIS IS A TERRIBLE PICTURE OF HIM. If you watch True Blood or Straw Dogs you will know that he would be great for the role. Most of his sex appeal comes from his height and physical presence

  59. Ann says – reply to this


    59

    Check out Jessie Pavelka….He's what I think Christian Grey looks like. I think Jessie would be perfect for the part. He has some hot pictures online.

  60. andrea says – reply to this


    60

    Skarsgard is just the perfect Christian Grey : He is cold and hot, he can play nice and evil, he has a beautiful body and a complicated soul …. Grey is a self made business man far too young in the books (age 27) and the maturity of Skorsgard adds more credibility to the story.
    The books are not that great …. Skarsgard as Grey would give the movie an upgrade. Knowing that he loves Isabelle Hupert playing in The Pianist is the best qualification ever.
    Holywwoooooooood call him NOW !!

  61. bRANDY says – reply to this


    61

    ok, i love him as Eric but he is not ”Christian Grey”. not even close. im sorry

    65

    Are we talking about BDSM ?? Real stuffff ?? Or just another teen movie ??
    Skarsgard is the right guy for the job.

  66. Anaharah says – reply to this


    66

    I love Alex but my top choice is armie hammer. He would totally knock christian grey out the part if he doesn't mind the sexuality.

  67. Eve Pender says – reply to this


    67

    He is NOT at all sexy enough to play Christian….YUCK!!! Ian Somerhalder all the way!

  68. Taylor says – reply to this


    68

    Nooooooo way! Not even close. No one will be good enough to play his part not even Ian Somerholder. I think someone who looks like William Levy maybe

  69. mabel mendoza says – reply to this

  75. Cat712 says – reply to this


    75

    I read the books and see josh bowman in the book. (daniel grayson revenge)
    I think he would be perfect. I love Alexander but not sure if that would fit. Also as i read below colin egglesfield would also be a great choice

  76. Jessie says – reply to this


    76

    Matt Bomer HAS to play Christian!!!

  77. Karina says – reply to this


    77

    Justin Hartley should play Christian Grey hands down! If you don't believe it, just google his images and see the one of him 'shirtless in ripped jeans — lets hope with bare feet' (wink.) …End of argument. :)



  78. 78

    nooo, skarsgard is all wrong!

    I always pictured Sam Page as Christian. A bit too old, but who cares…

  79. Christine says – reply to this


    79

    Alex yes Skarsgard - NO. Christian is young and drop dead gorgeous. I picture Alex Pettyfer in the role.

    Yum. Alexander would be delicious as Christian. The role needs to be played by a man, not a boy. This movie shouldn't be targeted to girls-therefore, no young heartthrobs should even be considered. Someone suggested Zac Efron? Are you effing with me?!? No way. Kristen Stewart as Ana? Repulsing. Alexander would be perfect. If you've seen True Blood, he is Christian Grey. Please Universal, give us a man.

  84. starryeyed says – reply to this


    84

    ALEXANDER SKASGARD! Completely not in line with the Christian Grey physical description, but hey. Can't win them all, Universal. Haha. Jk. Actually, Armie Hammer would be PERFECT! There are so many guys who could play a hot, twisted **** . There are so many guys with Oscar worthy talent. But Armie Hammer's face is the epitome of Christian Grey. If the casting director has half a brain, he/she will be fighting for Armie! I have more than half a brain, therefore, I know–and my University of Oxford degree will surely serve as proof ;) Hahahahahaha. Kidding. But really though, I'm not kidding about Armie!

  85. yayacandance says – reply to this


    85

    ARMIE HAMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OR HENRY CAVILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know if it's there smug smiles or their Hampton style haircuts, but boy oh boy, they are the poster childs [sic] of Christian freaking Grey! My God, if only Christian Grey himself were real :) :D ;) :D :) :) :)

    First, That pic of Alex isn't a good one.. Anyone who's seen True Blood knows how gorgeous he is and imo, perfect to play the role of CG.. Can't think of anyone better.
