    BEE is a doucher. And I'm pretty sure the write doesn't get to pick the cast.

    Just shut up about it. Jesse is not offended and Bret is gay too!! I'm glad he said what most of the rest of us were thinking! I DO NOT want Matt Bomer for Christian Grey and most people don't! And Bret never said he was picking the cast. He's just tossing around ideas like the rest of the Fifty shades fans. A gay Christian Grey would ruin the fantasy for alot of women.But I wouldn't see Matt as Christian even if he wasn't gay. Ian Somerhalder though….I'd see the movie more than once and buy 3 dvds for him.

    Bret is an idiot. Matt is becoming more and more popular everyday. I can't believe that, Jesse even tweeted about him not being offended. Bret has made many offensive jokes in the past, including making fun of HIV. Bret is insane if he thinks he is getting the job. I think Bret has been drinking the 'cray juice' for a long time now.

    It says so much that he's even read it. Still laughing.

    So what if he's gay? He's a good actor and he's hot! My ideal Christian Grey :)

    Re: Liliana – A think Matt would make a great Christian. That isnt the best photo of Matt, but i think he can definitely nail the role. And you're wrong BTW. People do want to see him play Christian. People have made tons of trailers on his behalf :)

    Re: Nessie – I know people want to see him play Christian. I would not want to because I think the book is crap. That being said, I know Matt would do a good job. He is a great actor and he proves it on White Collar.

    Bret is a self loathing homosexual who likely cannot stand to see someone as hot and talented as Matt succeed. I like Jesse, but comparing him to the hottest man on earth is absurd. Bret is likely on a another bender. Matt is above this role, he will blow it off, it is trash.

    How about that actually was a suggestions …?
    If you've read the book (and I only read a quarter of the first before going to puke) but you must know that Christian Grey is a fucking red head. (Count how many times shes describes his COOPER hair )

    Matt Bomer is THE perfect Christian Grey; his looks and everything just work for the role. So what if he is gay? Women still fantasize about him with this knowledge, it doesn't make him less appealing at all. Plus it is called ACTING, something Matt Bomer is very good at. I hope Matt Bomer gets considered for Christian Grey!

    Jesse Tyler Ferguson tweeted that he and Bret are friends, he totally got what he meant and that people need to lighten up.

    Maybe Bret should have phrased it diferently, but he did say what a lot of people who have read the Fifty Shades books are thinking. Matt Bomer is just not right for Christian Grey. He's handsome but he doesn't have the type of dominant sexy needed for the role. Too bland for this type of sexually charged role. And I'm sorry but it would completely ruin the fantasy for women watching the movie and trying to buy into the chemistry of Christian and Ana when we know the actor playing him would rather be with her friend, Jose. And what about the part when Ana interviews him when they meet and one of the interview questions is, ”Mr. Grey are you gay? I can hear the snickers in the theater now. It would take me out of the moment of the film and ruin it.

    He is SOOO right. This is such a strongly sexual, heterosexual, male role - the fantasy would be lost by many with the knowledge that he is really gay. Ruined it for me when I saw him in Magic Mike making out with his wife in the movie. I just didn't buy his role. Plus, this has been a fantasy for every woman who has read that book. No offense to him at all, he's totally hot, but facts are facts. Also, if he was chosen and took the role, his sexuality would be all people LIKE Perez, would talk about and it would ruin the movie as well. Plus, I heard he already stated he wouldn't do it.

    All I can add to this thread is that Matt Bomer is NOT hot. Nothing special physically about him whatsoever. Actually, he is rather blah.

    The book is trash as will be the movie, but on topic, half of the male actors in show business are gay or three quarters if you throw in the Bi's including many of the names mentioned for this movie. Matt plays sexy straight perfectly every week on his show, sexier than most truly straight actors and everyone who has seen it knows it. Only an idiot cannot seperate reality from the movies but we know how many idiots the world has. On Jesse's tweet, BEE is a has been who seeks attention by saying idiotic things and Jesse wasn't the one compared to an effeminate chimp looking dude so easy for him to say lighten up

    Re: Liliana – You really think Ian is straight? LOL, naive fan girl

    Poop starter! Nothing but a poop starter. I didn't know any of their named either! Perez, on your death bed ~ is when the real fear kicks in. Never can you say that you added anything positive to the world. You just contributed to havoc, lies, and meanness to man kind. I pray you get right!

    Oh what a class act this Bret Easton is. He crawled out of his hole just to spill his homophobic hatred, well he can crawl right back in because NEWSFLASH!!!!! Millions of woman really don't care whether Matt Bomer is gay, bisexual, straight or alian for that matter. He is a brilliant actor (that's right…ACTOR) & effortlessly the hottest guy on the planet right now & by far one of the most talented. Mr. Easton could take a lesson from the beautiful Bomer himself on how to conduct himself with class! Pay attention to his wise words of wisdom…
    "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. 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’” -~ Matt Bomer on equality~

    @Dee Apparently you are unaware that Bret is gay. He is not homophobic. lol

    It's a very major disappointment to announce that I've somehow been taken off the list of possible screenwriters for Fifty Shades of Grey…

    He messed with the all powerful Bomer and got his own sorry ass kicked out of consideration. Now he can crawl back into his hole. LOL I love the Hollywood powerful…

    I think it is interesting that people cancel out Matt Bomer as a contender for Christian Grey because he is gay. I thought it was acting. He isn't actually a White Collar Criminal either…

    if you dont like the books..why bother to write out and waste your pathetic time?? SOME PEOPLE NEED A GOODD ASS KICKIN

    Matt Bomer is hot…but NOT a good fit for 50 shades.

    Oh please, Bomer is a blip in the scheme of things. He isn't getting this role.

    They are going to water down Fifty Shades as much as they can. The suits in Hollywood aren't willing to take a risk with a writer like Bret who would have turned out an awsome screenplay the way fans of the book would have liked.

    Sorry Girls but Bret has a point and I totally agree with him! Matt Bomer is NOT the right Choice for Christian! End of Story!

    From Digital Spy:

    " Ellis confirmed yesterday that despite expressing an interest in adapting EL James's bestseller, he has been removed from the list of screenwriters for the project."

    Here's the thing - Matt Bomer can pull off that vibe that keeps the ladies interested — very interested! So he would be believable in this role. I LOVE JTF in Modern Family, but it is totally comparing apples to oranges.

    Bret Easton Ellis is a joke. I don't understand how people think that just because Matt Bomer is gay that it is going to affect the movie in a bad way. He plays a straight man on White Collar and if I'm not mistaken, women still want him KNOWING he's homosexual. Even if he were straight none of us females would have a flying chance with him. I think Matt Bomer could totally get into this role and I'd love if he did just to prove to people that he has what it takes to pull off Christian Grey. Maybe I'm just a dedicated fan but even so, I could give a flying F that Matt Bomer isn't straight. I see him as a hot, talented actor who would be right for this role so Bret Easton Ellis needs to pull his head out of his butt and stop being ignorant as for the rest of the world who thinks Matt Bomer can't do this job because of his sexual orientation. It's ACTING!

    (WARNING: The following comment contains sarcasm.) Only gays should play gay and only straights should play straight? Why stop there! Everyone knows that acting isn't really acting and its only convincing when its 'for real'. I think only cops should play cops and only robbers should play robbers! Only cowboys should play cowboys, and indians play indians! When I found out that C3PO wasn't a real robot that just ruined the whole 'realism' of that flick for me. Sir Anthony Hopkins sucked as a serial killer because he doesn't have a couple dozen murders under his belt (little Jeffy Dahlmer would have played Hannibal Lecter so much better than Hopkins if only they could have kept him from eating the cameraman and best boy) and I'll never believe a single performance from that hack Meryl Streep until an actual dingo actually eats her actual baby! And, you know, come to think of it, Jessica Lange would have played those last scenes in 'Francis' so much more convincingly if they had really given her a labotomy in her dressing room right before filming began! What's next? Are you gonna try and tell me those little guys getting all worked up over that ring wern't really hobbits and ruin that one for me too? That type of logic proves Bret Easton Ahole is an idiot. Maybe he should quit writing books since he's not an actual typewriter, or at least stop expressing his thoughts since he's not an actual thinker.

    You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be actually something which I believe I might by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely huge for me. I'm taking a look ahead in your subsequent publish, I'll try to get the cling of it!
