Matt Bomer Is NOT Starring In 50 Shades Of Grey

Matt Bomer Is NOT Confirmed For 50 Shades Of Grey

We wish it were true, but unfortunately the (above) Entertainment Weekly cover is a FAKE, which means Matt Bomer is NOT starring in the film version of 50 Shades of Grey. It's all just a sad rumor started by such a deceiving headline!!

So again, we repeat Team Bomer: This EW cover is a LIE!!!

As you can see, the faux magazine cover claims:

"Fifty Shades of Grey: The wait is over. Matt Bomer talks about changing the white collar for a grey tie."

And, it's complete bullshizzle!

Matt is not leaving his TV show, White Collar, and he has not scored the coveted role of Christian Grey.

50 Shades producers Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti have said "no one has been cast in any role." Because they want to tie down "a writer and director first."

So fans of the books can rest easy.

There is still time for the producers to cast your top pic (Alexander Skarsgard) for the big part!

    Re: Nolan Ross – Agreed; the book was total crap.
    .
    Re: tiffany – He was until he confirmed his gay. I am a normal, red-blooded female, and I think that Bomer is beautiful. But because he made it my business to know that he likes boys, I can no longer see him as a leading man in heterosexual roles. He is not and will never be a good enough actor to make me forget that he likes to give it to other guys, and I need to be able to forget that to believe the onscreen relationship. This isn't about homophobia, so you liberal haters can cram it before you mouth off. This is about believability, and Bomer destroyed his for many.

    They are going to need a seriously good writer and director because those books are so poorly written. Sorry but they are CRAP. And with so much hype associated with them at this point ~ if the script isn't amazing any actor would be a fool to touch this project. Showgirls! This could turn into a career killer.

    Good I glad Matt is not doing it. Alexander doesn't need to be cast for the part either. Neither of them was right for the part.

    I love Bomer and believe gay actors need to work, too. That said, his WC "love scenes" are uncomfortable (he always has that "I REALLY love you… as a FRIEND" look) and THIS ONE TIME, the part MUST go to a confirmed heterosexual (no closet cases). Love him but this one part is for the women who love a hot, STRAIGHT guy. A gay grey? No way!

    Re: SexyMomma1122 – I had to google him. I had no idea who he was… but I must say, YOU ARE SO RIGHT! He has that cocky look to him and everything.

    Re: SexyMomma1122 – OMG! PAVELKA IS PERFECT! He fits the description of Christian Grey that's IN THE BOOK. A lot of women have completely discarded the actual description of Christian Grey and are putting their actor-crushes into the part. I pray the producers/director/writers follow James' description of the man. And Emiia Clarke as Ana? Double perfect!

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – You couldn't tell he was gay? I knew it the minute White Collar debuted. He had that vacant, far away 'I'm just not that into you' look in every scene with a woman. How do people, especially women, not pick up on this???

    Why did god make women so plain looking and men so freaking beautiful? It's a wonder there are any straight men. The multi billion dollar cosmetics industry is grateful that women need so much help.

    Re: lori – When I started the first book I thought 'What IS this crap…' It was work to endure but, after Ana and Christian's second meeting, I was all in. The problem is the editing. Someone should have made James rewrite the hideous opening because the books become downright brilliant as they progress. That's what's weird about them. You can see her writing skills progress as you read.

    In the end, 50 Shades is really quite the delirious love story. When I went back to re-read all three it was quite obvious the difference in the writing from start to end. And the emails are the best thing in the books. I'd suggest you make the effort to get past the cringe-worthy opening (I'm amazed anyone could) and stick with it. If you're not completely immersed by the middle of book one, maybe it's just not for you - for any number of reasons. But the writing definitely improves, which I would never have found out if my library reserve had arrived before I could progress past the opening. I'm glad it didn't.

    The only thing good about Bomer (for this role) is he can, at least, act. I say that because some of the suggestions for the part were hideously bad teen dream type "actors." I like Bomer a lot personally (not THAT way…) but the repeated description of Christian Grey are utterly at odds with Bomer's age, look and demeanor. And I really can't handle a gay grey, anyway. Sorry.

    Matt Boner is the only man good enough to play Fifty. Period!

    Ian Somerhalder or Henry Cavill needs to play Christian Grey! Alexander Skarsgard is not attractive and does not fit the part of Christian Grey at all….I don't understand why people think he works for this…

    I THINK THAT RYAN GOSLING IS THE PERFECT CHOICE 4 THIS MOVIE, HE MATCHES PERFECTLY. WITH THE CHRISTIAN'S DESCRIPTION N HE ISN´T THAT OLD

  29. Gisselle says – reply to this

    Ian Somerhalder is the PERFECT guy to play Christian
    I couldn't imagine anyone but Ian !!!

    I have said all a long that I have pictures Alexander Skarsgrad as Christian from the first time I read the book, I have now read them 7 times each and still only picture Alexander. I say that he would make the best and only Christain. He totally is the perfect package for this role. I also had someone write this to one of my many posting and it is true.Let see…
    Tall at 6ft 4, check
    Amazing body, check
    Copper colored hair, check
    Really does film all nude scenes in the nude, check
    Totally sexy with an edge, check
    Experience working in a room of pain, check (see Eric Northman's torture/sex dungeon in True Blood)
    Great actor, check
    Yep…he's about right…
    So if anyone wants to see Christian just look up Alexander Skarsgrad.I will keep companion for him for this role.

    Re: Nolan Ross – We actual need more can not wait for Christian side to come out



  32. 32

    Alexander Skarsgard is way too old and ugly to play Christian grey. I only read a bit of the first book but there is no way he should be cast. I don't get people thinking he is hot, i think he's gross. I can see Matt Bomer or Ian summerhalder in the role though.



  33. 33

    Re: Mrs. Momoa – Alexander Skarsgrad is the total package for this part. read what some wrote to me & look him up Let see…

    Alexander Skarsgrad is the only one I can ever picture playing Christian. And I have read the books 7 times,



  40. 40

    I am still companion for Alexander Skarsgrad to be Christian. Still the nly one who can pull off the part perfectly. the only one that is Christian
    here is my list of roles

    Christain = Alexander Skarsgard

    Ana =Erica Desher/ Emilia clarke or Lucky Griffth

    Mrs. R = Kim Cattrall .

    Jose = Taylor launter

    Ryan = David Borenaz / Jason Statham

    Taylor = Clark Greg

    Kate= Deborah Woll

    Mia = Lily Collin

    Ethan = Ian Hemsworth

    Elliot = Chris Hemsworth

    Gail = Diane Lane

    Carrick= Paul Walker

    Grace = charlize theron

    Swayer = Alex O'loughlin

    Flynn = Jonathan Rhys Meyer

    I don't understand how Alexander could be anyone's top choice for Christian Grey. He doesn't fit the part AT ALL. Casting him as Christian would disappoint many many fans of the book. I would love to see Henry Cavill as Christian, but if not ANYONE but Alexander please.

    Re: Alaina – Agreed! 100% My comment above was almost the same as yours.

    43

    Alexander looks way too old and not attractive enough for the part. Can we please remember this man is supposed to be 26 years old and ridiculously beautiful? There are MANY other options that would be SO much better than Alexander. I am confident that E.L James wouldn't cast him. Lets hope i'm right… or let the disappointment begin.

    So thankful it's not this Matt Bomer…not a good fit at all. My vote is for Ian Somerhelder from the Vampire Diaries. He is perfect and dreamy.

    Matt Bomer is the perfect Mr. Grey! what or who he does on his own time is just that his own time!! Come on people it's freaking 2012 get over yourselves and your ignorant comments on him being Gay!! Who fucking cares!! He's a great actor and that's what you do when your in movies you ACT!!! Matt leads very convincing sex scenes and romantic relationships in white collar with woman all the time! People who use his sexual orientation as a reason for him not to be cast as Christian Grey are just worthless, like you would have a chance with him if he was straight!

    Matt Bomer's character, Neal Caffery, had the most amazing chemistry with his love interest in the openning episodes of White Collar. FIirty and yet had tender moments. He's the one that can play the part . But I'm not sure if I want him to take the role…

    I'm not sure why this writer thinks everyone wants Alexander. If you look at the polls, he is not leading them. Matt Bomer and Ian S are the top runners in the polls. It is not surprising to me that million of woman have picked Bomer as Christian Grey. He is absolutely stunning to lack at, has the most intoxicating blue/grey eyes & all the characteristics of Christian. Oh yes, and he is a brilliant actor, a step ahead in class and sophistication than most of the actors mentioned here who have been around for way longer than he has. As far as people saying he would not be believable, you wouldn't have even mentioned that if he hadn't come out as gay. To those who are using the "gay card" to bash Matt and use that as an excuse because you want your favorite to win, shame on you! It is 2012 let's move forward, not backwards. Here are Matt's words spoken so elequently on the subject, it would be wise to take his own advise & stop the homophobic comments. "What we really have to do is stop the adjective before the job title—whether it's 'black actor,' a 'gay actor' or 'anything actor.' Everybody thinks that equality comes from identifying people, and that's not where equality comes from. Equality comes from treating everybody the same regardless of who they are. I hope the media and the press catches on to that because it's time to move out of 1992." - Matt Bomer

    Matt Bomer just screams Christian Grey for me. Not only is he ridiculously so handsome & sexy, he is a brilliant actor who would puts his heart & soul into every role he plays. No one, I me no one can look so dashing and sophisticated in a suit as Matt Bomer. Just look at this face, those stunning grey eyes, he has the whole package….

    NO to Alexander Skarsgard as Christian Grey… I think that Matt Bomer is the one!

    I am only for Alexander Skarsgrad for Christian. I read Anna post and she is total right, and she goes along with everything that I have been saying. Alexander is the only one that can pull this part off. He has had a playroom in Trueblood. he has the total attiude, he is the perfect actor for the part, he has the range they need for Christian. Again they would make a great movie if he has the lead
    role.SO MAKE ALEXANDER SKARSGRAD CHRISTIAN GREY>the total package, and the best man for the job If you don't believe me see all the posting just from one site.
    .Anna - 14 hours ago
    As I read the books, only one person came to mind: Alexander Skarsgard. Watch him one day if you haven't. He has the ability to have those hard, stern beady eyes that says "I'm going to…" well you read the books, you know what I mean. His walk, his stare, his gorgeous body….he would not let us down, I know he would do the part justice!!

    I'm glad, he's not Christian Grey as far as I'm concerned. It means Jensen Ackles is still a possibility, and he's the only choice for this role! Though if it comes down to Alexander Skarsgard and Matt Bomer, I have to opt for Matt Bomer. Skarsgard is so unattractive to me, I'd hate him to play Christian!!
