Henry Cavill Trading Tight Blue Suit For 50 Shades of Grey?!

| Filed under: Film FlickersMatt BomerHenry CavillBookz50 Shades Of Grey


This is it you sexy people! We've got a screenwriter, we're got a potential Anastasia Steele…

But is The Man of Steel himself aka Henry Cavill going head to head with Matt Bomer to play Fifty Shades of Grey's leading hunk of man meat Christian Grey?!

The steamy Superman recently dished about whether or not he was vying for the role, expressing:

"Whether that happens, that decision will be made at the time it has to be made. It would be a very different kind of thing than Man of Steel."


Ok, so he barely gives away any information… but he didn't say he wouldn't take the part!

But now we are SO flustered ’cause we totally think BOTH Matt and Henry would be perfect to play Christian's sexy, dominant self!

And Henry TOTALLY looks the part in the above pic!

    YES YES YES!!! HE IS PERFECT!! when i read them all i could see was him in this role!!!

  6. Argie says – reply to this


    He and Matt are gay, no way!

  7. skiwitch says – reply to this


    He's a good looking guy as are all the others mentioned. However, I think Matt Bomer is the only one that qualifies as "beautiful" and can carry off the cool slick CEO AND the boyish innocence as well as all the mercurial mood changes required for the part. Maybe Ryan Gosling ……. If they are convincing on screen, their private lives are their business.

    Matt and Henry should run away from this mess both too good for it

  9. no way! says – reply to this

  12. Lacey says – reply to this


    I can't decide between Matt or Henry

  13. Isabella says – reply to this


    Oh my God! he’s soooo gorgeous! and proper :) I don’t like he’s with Gina Carano, she’s so tacky… :-/

    Henry Cavill is so much Christian Grey in everything!! He has even the same tie of Christian and that pic is from 2009. He has even the perfect age 29 years old, Matt Bomer is 36, Ian Somerhalder 34, Alexander Skarsgard 37…all 3 too old for playing Christian!!

  15. ivvy says – reply to this


    OMG not Henry. Matt is the only one who can truly play CG as depicted in Fifty Shades!!!

  16. haleigh says – reply to this


    No no no no no no. MATT BOMMMERRRRRRR PLLZZZZ!!!!! He's Christian! No one else will do.

    Henry Cavill is the ideal actor to play Cristian Grey…1. He can act. 2. He is sexy as can be 3. He can play an intimate scene which can blow the sox off you (See the Tudors)..4. He is extremely good looking…just like the author of 50 Shades described. Jacqueline, San Diego…CA

  18. Connie says – reply to this


    Please no Henry Cavill! I don't imagine Christian Grey with the beginning of a receding hairline. Henry is so bland. Let's leave him to be the new Superman and a part of that franchise. Fifty Shades should have an actor that hasn't just been in a franshise film.

  19. Sophia says – reply to this


    Ian Somerhalder is Christian Grey hands down. No one comes close to the kind of sexy he knows how to deliver. Anyone who watched tonight's episode of TVD should have all the convincing they need. He's Mr. Grey in the flesh. Others that have been mentioned for the role are too vanilla…

  20. Andre says – reply to this


    Henry Cavill and Matt Bomer are HOT!!!!!

  21. Andre says – reply to this


    Henry Cavill and Matt Bomer are HOT!!!! I love to meet both of them. Damn what fine men they are!

    For all the Henry haters, please watch the Tudors (plenty of clips on youtube to watch, especially of Henry and his sex scenes). Then, reread the book's description of Christian. Everything points to Henry. Eyes, jawline, age, body, hair, fluent in French, it is all Henry. The author based her characters on Twilight's. Stephanie Meyers admits she based her Edward on Henry Cavill. The other guys just do not fit for one reason or another. Henry has to becast. As soon as I read the description of Christian, Henry was the guy I pictured while reading the books. I cannot wait to see him as Superman and hope that the one casting 50 Shades makes sure to put Henry in that part. There is no other.

    Look at the picture of Henry Cavill and then skip over Colin Farrell and look at Matt Bomer's picture. Who is Christian Grey? How can there be a question? Look at those eyes…(However, unless they get a really good screenplay and director, this could turn out to be a skinflick and I don't want to see Matt's time and talent wasted on a just a dirty movie.)

  24. Patricia says – reply to this


    Henry is good looking enough, but when you have an accomplished actor who looks like Matt Bomer, Henry appears too "vanilla" & bland compared to him. Matt is esthetically more chiselled & stunning than Henry, starting from those intoxicating crystal blue/grey eyes. Even though Henry is 29, he looks like he is in his late thirties. Matt looks so much younger even though he is older. It is not the actual age that counts, but whether an actor "looks" Christian's age.

  25. Amanda says – reply to this


    Ian Somerhalder was made for this role. Neither Henry or Matt have Ian's incredibly distinct sensual looks. Those eyes, that smirk, it's exactly as described in the books. Ian's a great actor who can play dak and vulnerable and expresses so much with his eyes. And I love thta he's shown interest in the role. He'd be epic as Christian Grey.

  26. 26

    IAN SOMERHALDER is the perfect fit for this movie!!!

  27. 27

    Re: Iris – their REAL age has nothing to do with it, Ian plays Damon on VD, who is 20.

  28. jackie says – reply to this


    Ok, not too bad..but my favorites are still: Emmy Rossum (she looks like a girl who loves to read , she has an interesting a n d pretty face, a bit shy and innocent)… and Cillian Murphy, because he can play sexy a n d creepy…these eyes!

  29. 29

    love it! he's perfect!! now they just need to cast Alice Greczyn for Ana!! she's not a huge star but she's who i picture when i read the books! :) She'd be perfect!

  30. jackie says – reply to this


    …what about Jared Leto..he could play it right!

  31. kat says – reply to this


    IAN SOMERHALDER!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. mat bomer says – reply to this


    matt bomer

  33. Iris says – reply to this


    Re: CrystalDragon33 – Sorry, but Christian is 27/28 years old and ian Somerhalder, like Matt Bomer are TOO OLD to play a 27 years old, they both show their age, they don't look like 27 years old guys. Plus they both don't have anything from Christian Grey, you may want your idol to play Christian, but doesn't mean he is a fit. Henry Cavill was the inspiration for writing Christian Grey and Eduard Cullen and E.L.James is a big fan of him…Henry is meant to play Christian Grey.

  34. HC4CG4LYFE says – reply to this


    Henry Cavill BETTER play Christian Grey. He fits the part perfectly!!!!! If Ian so..what ever you call him.. gets the part I will cry my self to sleep. He just is nothing like I pictured. Henry would make a BEAUTIFUL 50 shades. He's got that "coolness" to him, but could totally "whip out" ;) that inner dark and sexy character.. Not in a stupid cheesy way (Ian), but in a "holy crap just do me now" way.

  35. 2314 says – reply to this


    UGH!! holy crap are you people blind . henry may be 29 but he LOOKS sooooo much older than matt. matt all the way! matt can pass for 27, but not cavill. henry looks so fcking old. and ryan doesnt have the face shape for playing christian grey. matt bomer plays a straight guy on white collar and makes out with girls and there was even a sex scene and he has no problem portraying chemistry. so MATT ALL THE WAY! ugh!

  36. mswallberg says – reply to this


    Oh, Please let it be Mr Matt Bomer

  37. catherine says – reply to this


    Re: Isabella – No, nor can I - love 'em both!

  38. Jinx says – reply to this


    I dont think Cavill should play the role! Im a huge fan. But Ive just finished reading fifty shades of Grey and the plot sucks… the writing sucks… and I have no idea about the screenplay but I dont think anyone can work around it too much to give Henry a great role! SO pleaseeeeeeeeeeee HENRY, stay away! You're the Man of Steel! Stay where you are or fly high… Steel to Grey? NOOOOOO! :)

    Please Lord Let this man be Christian Grey …please please please PLEASE !!!!!
