‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ fans are chomping at the bit for the announcement of what Hollywood heart throb will snag the role of Christian Grey in the book to film adaptation. Here we’ll list for you the top ten fan favorites of stars to take the role of the sensual Grey.
Up first, it is no surprise to see the Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder at the top of the list. Mystic Fall’s hometown bad boy has the smirk and the charm to portray Mr. Grey.
‘White Collar’ star, Matt Bomer is also at the top of the list. Bomer already has a large fan base vying for his casting as Christian Grey. He clearly can rock a suit and oozes sex appeal and charisma. Bomer has been quoted to say he is flattered that fans want to see him in movies such as ‘Fifty Shades.’
Robert Pattinson was originally the base for Christian Grey. ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ was first written as a Twilight fan fiction. However, sadly for Twilight fans, E.L. James has already stated that she will not have Pattinson or his on and off-screen romantic partner, Kristen Stewart, cast in the lead roles.
Alexander Skarsgard, best known for his role as Eric Northman in HBO’s hit show, ‘True Blood,’ is another fan favorite. With his dashing good looks and incredibly portrayal as Eric, it is no surprise that fans would love to see him as their Christian Grey.
Henry Cavill, about to make his debut as Superman in ‘Man of Steel,’ has caught the attention of fans everywhere. Whether Cavill looks to old for the role is yet to be seen as we await ‘Man of Steel’ to hit theaters this summer.
Stephen Amell, currently starring on the CW’s ‘Arrow’, is a recent entry into the Christian Grey race. Although he not one well talked of, he is getting a lot of attention as of late!
Ryan Gosling, a fan favorite from films such as ‘The Notebook,’ ‘Crazy Stupid Love,’ and ‘Blue Valentine,’ is a huge fan favorite. Seen as the epic heart throb Noah in ‘The Notebook’, fans can’t help but love and hope that Gosling gets cast as Christian Grey. Our take? This is a role that Gosling will not star in. We feel he might be too far out of the age range and are fans really ready for their sweet Noah to take to the sheets and world of BDSM?
Alex Pettyfer, costarring along side Channing Tatum in ‘Magic Mike’, is a young man getting rave reviews for his acting. Though relatively younger than most of the other men listed, Pettyfer quite possible might be a force to reckon with!
Garrett Hedlund, recently starring in ‘On the Road’ next to Kristen Stewart, is one actor fans are rooting for. An innocent tweet from writer E.L. James has cast speculation on whether or not James is considering Hedlund as Christian Grey.
Jessie Pavelka, though limited in film credits, has the look that many are looking for in Christian Grey. Is he too much of bodybuilder material for the suave CEO Grey? Only time will tell!

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is expected to be released in theaters sometime in 2014.
