Sorry, ASkars! Tough luck, Joe Man! Foiled again, Danny Glover!

The people have spoken, and they want need Matt Bomer to play notorious bedroom master Christian Grey!

As the E.L. James' infamous book enters the early stages of pre-pre-pre-production, the internet in all of its infinite glory demands to have a say in the casting decisions!

Sure, a few are holding out for Ian Somerhalder but a wide array of internet polls all have 50 Shades of Grey fans coming to a near consensus in their love for the marvelous Matty B!

WE LOVE IT!!

And just in time for the new line of official sex toys, too! LOLz!!

We wonder if they'll start marketing ball-gags with Mister Bomer's portrait?

    He needs to stay away from this movie.

    Yeah… not someone I entend on pining for while I watch the movie on the bigscreen…



  3. 3

    This would be a career suicide, he is too good for this crap.



  4. 4

    Re: anon – I agree. Any good actor should stay away. In fact, this story, with its superficial characters and lack of plot, should just be made into a porn movie.



  5. 5

    No way! Are you kidding me??? He was born in 1977 that make him 35, too old for Christian.
    Also,take this anyway you want, they should not cast an openly gay actor in this part. This is going to be a mostly female audience and women like the fantasy. When they see, onscreen the happening of Christian and Ana you will be distracted by the thought that Mat is really gay.
    They should cast one of those Hemsworth bros or Ryan Goseling. AsKARS is too old and I don't know who the other two are.



  6. 6

    A Gay actor in this role equals financial suicide for everyone involved in the movie. Sorry, put him in a wig and he can play the female part in " 50 shades of Gay", thats something he is qualified for



  7. 7

    Sorry but no gay actor for this role. Fantasy OVER.

    He has no interest in this trash, he is above it. His career path will take a higher road with TNH. He has 4 movies to film, give it to one of the actors who nees the work and is less talented. BTW, if you think a gay man shouldn't play this or any role you are a stupid feck. Half the actors in film and tv are, wake up, at least he owns it!

    Re: rosebud99 – Rosebud, you're so right. What ever happened to great literature? Standards are pretty low these days.



  10. 10

    Re: Konna – riiiiggghhht. Nice generality or fantasy about everyone in hollywood being gay. You wish. It's 10% MAX. I'm a chic and it would ruin it for me knowing he's gay because we KNOW and therefore we also know there's no ENJOYMENT going on. Not that acting is real but we want to fantasize thinking there's a way the actor likes it which I'm sure a lot of straight actors do like sex scenes with opposite sex. buh bye

    OH PLEASE, STOP reporting nonsense. Matt's leading on two low profile websites, and only because Voter fatigue has set-in. Ian has won all the credible, high profile polls and most of his fans no longer feel the need to vote anymore. We're bored! We want real news, not more polls! Let Matt and his fans have their fun with the polls, because he really doesn't stand a chance.



  12. 12

    I can't stand this guy and he's not right for the role. If he's in it, I totally won't watch it… Skarsgaard all the way



  13. 13

    Matt is my second choice after Ian Somerhalder. I just think he's a little too nice for this part.

  14. Irvinegirl says – reply to this


    14

    Couldn't care less that he's gay. He's adorable and would do an excellent job in any straight role. I don't look at this man and think "gay" anyway. Nothing "male on male" about him.

  15. Nicki says – reply to this


    15

    silly fan girls first they think Ian has a chance at this?they need a real actor and he is too short for this role and second that he is straight!they are all too old,Matt,Ian,Skars. LOL

  16. I don't buy it... says – reply to this


    16

    The "consensus" is in that ginormous head of yours. This actor is not only completely and utterly turned off by women, but looks looks plain, handsome yes, but plain. I cannot believe I posed on this sub-standard website. Never again.



  17. 17

    Re: rosebud99 – I couldn't have said it better myself! Everyone who has any bit of self-respect should not allow his/her name to get dragged into this shit.

    Re: Irvinegirl – Nothing "male on male" about him??? Check out the hundreds of pics with him and his partner all over the Internet. TOTALLY kills this strong, sexual, hetero role for the millions of women who've read the book and want to buy into the fantasy of Christian Grey, especially on the big screen. I won't go see it if he's the lead!!! What's the fun in the fantasy if there is NO chemistry between the two leads b/c you KNOW he's just not that into her?!?!?!!! This is not a great masterpiece, but let's face it people, it's a fan favorite and was a fun summer read, plus its an intensely sexual love story that just can't be at its full potential with an openly gay actor. No offense, love gays, but it just doesn't wouldn't work with this story. Women love this story and love Christian Grey. It needs to be an HBO series, not big screen though.

  19. Laura says – reply to this


    19

    Any serious actor would refuse to be part of this crap! I really hope he stays far away from it. I love him, and I don't care if he's gay, many other actors are, but the story is just lame!! It would ruin his career! Please, please, please, Matt!! Don't even think about it, lol.

  20. CJ says – reply to this

    Matt would totally ROCK the part in 50 Shades if he did it, because he's an excellent actor and can definitely do the sexy bit. Anyone who says he can't because he's gay in RL is just laying their homophobia out in the open. It's ALL ACTING - and most actors will say that sex scenes are among the most uncomfortable to film with absolutely nothing real or natural about them. However… I do agree with those who have said Matt is too good for this role. The books are poorly written trash - scintillating, but no substance. Matt can get better roles.

  21. Jen says – reply to this


    21

    He's gay, it would ruin the movie, period.



  22. 22

    I don't watch commercial TV.I know, I know, I hear I'm missing out not having ever watched Glee. I watch HBO series which is why I'm a Skarsgard fan. After seeing Matt Bomer in an interview. Ahem, yes, he gets my vote. Ive never watched Vampire Diaries. I have no idea who Ian Somerhouser is. But from the pics of him NO. Just a thought. I really think this role should go to a big screen actor. All the actors named with the exception of Ryan Gosling (who is a big NO for this role) are small screen actors. By the time they make a script, Matt Bomer and Alex Skarsgard will be to old for the part. I don't think it should be a big screen movie. HBO would be more suitable, they don't have to rate it. They can show more. These are very erotic books.



  23. 23

    Re: Jen – It's ASSHOLES like you that keep actors in the closet. Who cares if Matt Bomer is GAY!! Being gay won't take away his acting skills!!! You bigoted piece of shit!!



  24. 24

    Re: MVPnisRe: Konna – Thank you. Now if only other gay actors would come out.

  25. totally says – reply to this

    Re: puhleezhilton – "Ginormous" - LOL the CW fans are here!



  26. 26

    YES! YES! YES! He is PURE SEX. I don't care if he's gay, straight, whatever. He's a good actor and super sexy. He's perfect to play Christian ;)



  27. 27

    Re: HurkaDurka – Hell yea!! I agree! Being gay or straight shouldn't define a person's ability to play a character.



  28. 28

    Me wants Ian Somerhalder. I like Matt on Glee and other shows. I just don't think this movie is for him. But time will tell.

  29. Celeste says – reply to this


    29

    I absolutley think Matt has the perfect look for the role, should it be a role he would consider taking. It's who I picture while reading . He's gay, who cares.. He's an actor! It wouldnt take away from the movie, people fanatise about the character, not the actor anyway. Would you complain that a straight guy is playing a gay guy this much?



  30. 30

    I am really sorry if this offends anyone, but i read the books n they are not wonderfully written. However, they worked wonders for certain areas of my life and my partner was very happy. With this in mind, i obviously had a great fantasy of what Mr Grey is like and he aint…….repeat AINT gay!!! Ian Sommerholder and Emma Watson Please………………………not that Emma would do it but some pics i have seen she looks like the perfect Anna!! x

  31. Danielle says – reply to this


    31

    IM A STRAIGHT WOMAN….and I dont give a damn if he's Gay or Bi or whatever…HE IS THE ONLY ACTOR I APPROVE FOR PLAYING CHRISTIAN GREY, because 1) he has the look of the perfect Christian Grey 2) he can definitely Act….(i dont want that Ian guy because he does not LOOK LIKE THE CHRISTIAN GREY THAT IS DESCRIBED IN THE BOOK!!)

    Wtf is wrong with you people who think that he HAS to be straight to play the role….THESE PPL WHO COMPLAIN ARE probably those Loosers who stalk actors thinking those actors are very much similar in character to the roles they play on screen….its a FICTIONAL BOOK WITH FICTIONAL CHARACTERS…..there isnt really a Christian Grey in real life so PLEASE TAKE YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS. WTF? Are u serious??? AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE!? I actually like that he is Openly gay!! Him playing christian makes him all the more untouchable, which is what christian is, untouchable, because he is fictional!! And he only gets attracted to beautiful women…so if you are a woman who still wants a straigt guy to play christian, just know you HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE SO JUST LET THINGS BE THE WAY IT SHOULD BE, AND QUIT COMPLAINING ABOUT THAT SHIT YOU STUPID UGLY IDIOTS.

  32. Gaga says – reply to this


    32

    I dont care if he's gay either…why would anyone in the right mind think that even matters?? HELLLLLLOO….whatdafuck is wrong with ppl these days….its called ACTING, look it up…

    And eooww..Ian?? cmon, his jaw is too big…yes, he's good looking, BUT he does not have that perfect face like Matt Bomer, who is perfect for Christian Gret!! I WOULD LOVE TO SEE HIM PLAY MR. GREY

  33. Mrs. Momoa says – reply to this


    33

    Okay…I haven't read the book but from what I hear this man "CG" is big into women and his toys. Matt is gay…he may be a good enough actor but I think everyone would be look at this movie thinking of him in his everyday life. Casting Matt is not the best choice.



  34. 34

    Not that good enough of an actor to convince me that he's a top!

  35. Anna says – reply to this


    35

    IAN SOMERHALDER is the perfect Mr.Grey!!!

    OMG NO!!!!!!!!!!! Ian has to play christian i dont think i will see the film if he gets casted

  38. Nina says – reply to this


    38

    Noooooooooooooooo!!!!! Ian Somerhalder HAS to play Christian!!!!!!!!!!! Just give the part to Ian already!!!!!

  39. Marina B says – reply to this


    39

    Re: rosebud99 – agreed. But Ian Somerhalder should do it.

  40. Ana says – reply to this


    40

    Matt is the BEST choice. I'm reading the trilogy now and I can't imagine any other performing Christian Grey. Matt HAS to be Mr. Grey!!!!!



  41. 41

    matt bomer is the perfect christian grey

  42. Cynthia says – reply to this


    42

    He is the ONE to play the part. He is simply Gorgeous!!

  43. Tara says – reply to this


    43

    Matt is gorgeous, and a great actor. Definitely my only choice to play Christian! He will be fantastic!

  44. Miss K says – reply to this


    44

    Re: Ana – Ian is too short - 5'9", a mediocre actor at best , too old and his personal life has some speculation as well. They need to choose a young fresh face for this. Matt, Ryan, Henry would never take it. They are all too busy with quality roles for like the next two years.



  45. 45

    He'll do fine as Christian Grey. Its ACTING. And I hate to disappoint the women here, most likely it will be a body-double doing the nude/sex scenes not Matt. Its always like that because some actors are uncomfortable with nudity.

  46. Onemoretime says – reply to this


    46

    Those Re: Miss K – You have little to no knowledge of the business. Believe me, A to D listers are interested. High profile roles are few and far between, and for most it's all about the paycheck. Only Ryan has a number of roles in the pipeline. Matt has his show and a small part in a movie. Henry's wrapped up superman. He would defo say yes. All his movies to date have bombed.



  47. 47

    Sorry but its not about the bigotry, its about the fantasy, if he was bi.. maybe I could let it go, but no, he's gay. He's not in my fantasy, its bad enough when you chase after straight men who aren't interested in you… its that much more embarrassing when they are gay. Why don't they try giving him a real love interest on his show if they want to change my mind?!!?!? At least NPH has a history of pretending to have sex with women…

  48. rainbowflower68 says – reply to this


    48

    He is definitely YUMMY YUMMY…. my vote goes for Patrick Dempsey or Ryan Gosling… Now before you all bash my picks… Patrick Dempsey, is a great actor and can be a hot Christian Grey… I know he is over 40… but so what..
    and as for Ryan… Well he is just F**kin HOT!!

  49. Ashley says – reply to this


    49

    NO!!!!!!! Sorry but I can not see Matt Bomer as the role of Mr. Grey…. I really dont think he has the sex appeal… Ian Somerhalder does in fact have it ALL!!!!! Look at his role as Damon in vampire diaries!!!! He has the sexy bad boy thing down!!!!

  50. rainbowflower68 says – reply to this


    50

    Ok Ashley..
    I have to see what this Ian guy is like. I really do not know his acting at all. I never watched him in Vampire Diaries…. but i will watch it just to see what he is all about..

  51. EM says – reply to this


    51

    Oh please! You keep talking about ruining the fantasy, that's why its called fantasy not reality! CG is fiction so fantasize however you want him in your head. And those of you claiming he can't act, if you were given a role in tom and jerry how many of you can deliver?! Its up to him decide whether he wants the role or not. Matt is an exceptional person and if you hadðve any problem with him CHOKE on it!

  52. anonUK says – reply to this


    52

    matt is perfect for this role he is who i see when i read the books hes super sexy and fits the role and yes hes gay but he doesnt show it when he acts nor does he act camp he would make 50 shades rock

  53. anonUK says – reply to this


    53

    Re: GoyaBean – - think for most matt would be fine as was in just a thong in magic mike



  54. 54

    Matt has the perfect body to pull off Mr. Grey.



  55. 55

    It's completely ridic that people would discriminate against an ACTOR who is gay or bi playing a straight role. You can fantasize ABOUT THE CHARACTER, but what does that have to do with the actor? Matt Bomer is too good for this shit, period. And he's a hell of a better actor than Ian Somelgabal-whatever, so I'm for letting that Ian have this shitty role. But if it was a reputable film and Matt was taking on ANY straight role, he would nail it. He is fantastic. So NO to the person above who said that only 10% of Hollywood is gay- yeah…right. Most of the actors we grew up and loved thinking they were straight were NOT. And no to the person who said Matt's personal life would interfere with the fantasy. There are pics of him with his partner, yes- walking or standing with each other. He's someone who basically is private about his business and keeps that world and his professional world separate. I think he's a gorgeous man, gorgeous fam, and people need to get out of the homophobic bubble and see someone who is an actor as an ACTOR, a person, etc. Stupid.

    Re: Nicki – I BELIEVE HE IS PERFECT/ ITS ALL ABOUT ACTING/
    HIS EYES ARE PERFECT THEY ARE SEXY, WILD AT TIMES, HE IS VERY VERY SEXY IN A SUIT
    HIS HAIR THE WAY IT AT TIMES FALLS FORWARD IS PERFECT , HE HAS THAT KID LOOK ALSO ,HE LOOKS VERY PROFESSIONAL IN A SUIT, YAH MAYBE HES 35 BUT FOR SURE DON'T LOOK IT, HES TALL, MOST OF ALL I FALL BACK ON HIS EYES THEY ARE DREAMY AND EYE CATCHING , ITS ALL ABOUT FANTASY !!! WHEN YOUR FINE IT JUST DON'T MATTER. HE HAS NOT HAD A MAJOR ROLE IN ANY OTHER MOVIE THAT CAN MAKE ME THINK OF HIM IN ANY OTHER WAY ON SCREEN/ ALL THE OTHER STARS I HAVE SEEN IN OTHER ROLES/ HE IS HOT & MYSTERIOUS EXACTLY LIKE THE BOOK! HEY THERE ARE LOT OF GAY ACTORS THAT HAVE TURNED ON WOMEN SINCE THE EARLY 60S / IF YOU CAN ACT BELIEVE ME, THAT IS GOOD ENOUGH/ HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE MATT BOMER HE IS BEAUTIFUL!! OK SO IVE BEEN MARRIED FOR 25 YEARS TO THE SAME MAN & I REALLY DON'T READ MUCH BUT ONCE I STARTED THIS BOOK i COULDN'T STOP. CHRISTIAN GREY IS A FANTASY GUY JUST LIKE MATT BOMER!! HE FITS THE ROLE PERFECTLY, IF YOU PASSED HIM ON THE STREET YOU WOULD ONLY DREAM BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW HIM/ ANYWAYS , I & MY DAUGHTERS BELIEVE HE IS PERFECT !!HOPE TO SEE HIM AT THE MIDNIGHT PREMIER !!!!

    My husband bought me some Ben Wa Balls like in the book and I have to say they are pretty amazing. They do not have a string like in the book but I am not sure if I would want a string because I doubt it could be cleaned properly. If anyone is interested you can find them on Amazon with this link:

    All these comments about Matt being gay have to stop. I'm tired of it. He has great acting chops & has the looks to play the part more than anyone else. The truth is everyone has a personnal life & I don't hear anybody say an actor can't play a role because they have a wife or girlfriend & they don't think it is proper for them to take a role because they are in a serious relationship & therefore they can't have a fantasy about them. There have been plenty of men thru the years that played straight that are gay. I don't get why all of a suden it is an issue with Matt.

  59. DB says – reply to this


    59

    Gaga I agree with you 100%. Why does it matter if Matt is gay. This is 2012 what is wrong with people! Seriously I'm shocked by all the homophobia out there. I'm from New York & I don't come across homophobia here. Matt is the best fit for the role in every way. Furthermore don't these people realize they offend people with their comments.

    are you talking about that fixed Poll, every time Ian is on Top when you go back to check you find out that votes was taking away from him, to keep Matt on Top, In almost every other legit posts Ian always wins. Matt doesn't look anything like christian Grey. Ian is everything that is described in the Books about Christian. Hes Eyes alone are hypnotizing and mesmerizing , besides beeing gorgeous., and he has that dangerous but also vulnerable look about Him.

  61. Kadie says – reply to this


    61

    I do think that he would be perfect for the part,but being he is gay -which I have nothing against- it just doesnt feel right. its going to mostly be a female audience and you want it to be realistic dont you???/

    IAN SOMERHALDER!



  62. 62

    I think Matt bomer is perfect for the role. Now other people are entitled to their own opinion and i fully respect that but I really do believe that Matt can play Christian Grey he is funny, gorgeous, and an incredible actor. He's sexual preference should be none of our business. I would think that this time in age people would realize that we are all humans and just because certain individuals choose to love a person of the same sex does not mean that their incompetent or should be restricted to do some things. Ultimately it's up to the 50 shades production who has the final answer and it would be intresting to see Matt play the role of CG. As for those of you who think that the books are just trash and probably think that the film will be trashy well guess what sex sells and most movies would probably not be popular if they didn't have some kind of sexy scene it. MATT BOMER WE ARE ROoting for you we know you can play any role you set your mind to the sky's the limit. Your fans hope to see you as CG, the Ken doll you played in Magic Mike was just a short preview. ; )

    Hey hey hey…..i totally understand all of you…pros and cons…but think for a second..just for a second….What if they pick Matt??? What if he embrace the part like no other….what if he takes control and take that girl (actress) like his and make love to her just like the book describes it???? I AM 100% SURE THAT IF MATTS EATS THAT GIRL ALIVE WILL SHUT EVERYBODYS MOTHS….AND PEOPLE??? HE CAN.

  68. Jordan says – reply to this


    68

    I think he would be fantastic! Who cares if he's a bit older than Mr. Grey, he looks great.
    And I for one wouldn't mind seeing him and all his glory up on the big screen. Gay or not, he's a terrific actor and very attractive. A perfect Mr. Grey.

  69. tori_xo says – reply to this


    69

    MATT BOMER is PERFECT for this role! AS I read the books he is exactly as I pictured Christan Grey to look. Handsome, jaw-droppingly sexy, and those eyes and jawline mmm!! If only he was straight… ;)

  70. Meg says – reply to this


    70

    I still want him to portray christian grey. But if he decides to turn it down, totally understand. And quite frankly, Im really proud of him for embracing his inner self and his relationship with simon and their kids. I think that says a lot about him. He seems loyal to his partner and this is something he could relate with christian grey. Its ridiculous to judge an actor just because of his or her sexual orientation.

  73. Ana says – reply to this


    73

    Who cares if he is gay, he is a great actor? He is Christian Grey. I honestly don't know how him being gay in real life would take away the fantasy, even if he was straight he would still be a fantasy, it doesn't increase your chances of being with him..

    You all are a bunch of homophobic haters, listen to yourself. Instead of looking at the upside of things you all are being a bunch of negative @ssholes. Yes, he's gay, yes we get it, and yes he's fcking gorgeous and perfect for the part. So why don't you all just get over yourselves an accept the fact that he is WAY better than anyone you could possibly imagine for the part. Just saying…

  77. caitlin says – reply to this


    77

    whats the point of having a gay actor playing the most straight character you have loads of straight guys who could play the part of christian and saying that matt should play the part even though hes gay 'its called acting' so if perez hilton was gay you would want him to act the role then?

  78. caitlin says – reply to this

    Re: caitlin – sorry i meant if Perez was an actor he could play the part

  79. holly says – reply to this


    79

    Re: caitlin – i agree with you, Christian Grey is incredibly straight and if you had Matt Bomer playing him then i guess it ruins it cause after so many films the actors hook up and you would have thought playing a movie like this with so much chemistry it ruins it that Matt wouldnt ever do this.
