Gratuitous Hotties: 50 Shades of Grey Edition

Posted by Alexandra C. | Friday September 7, 201241 comments

Fifty Shades of Grey has ladies everywhere in a tizzy. One of the most heated debates (emphasis on the heat) has been the upcoming 50 Shades movie and the anticipation of the announcement of the cast. We're all wondering, which leading man will be playing the smouldering and sexy Christian Grey? 

I took a look at some of the rumoured gents and decided to come up with my dream cast of 10 hotties that I would like to see play Christian Grey (in no particular order). And I have a few reasons as to why they would make the perfect Christian. Of course, I had to do a ton of research for this article and there were many scientific calculations that had to take place. It was gruelling. The things I do for you chicks...

#1. Alexander Skarsgard

Why he should play Christian Grey: If you're familiar with his character in True Blood, you know that this man does not shy away from nudity. Score one for Alexander! He can also play that perfect mix of inner vulnerability and outward intimidation which I think is important for the role. 

#2. Ian Somerhalder

Why he should play Christian Grey: Along the same lines as his character in The Vampire Diaries, this character has a devilish charm that is attracting and gives us stomach butterflies. Plus, he's super duper easy on the eyes. 

#3. Matt Bomer

Why he should play Christian Grey:  Matt Bomer is quite possibly the most handsomest man ever. Look at how he works it in a suit! He has major sex appeal. 

#4. Ryan Gosling

Why he should play Christian Grey: Here's the thing about Ryan Gosling as Christian Grey: he shouldn't do it because he's way too adorable and nice, but if he did, he'd be incredible at it. He's just that good. 

#5. Chris Hemsworth

Why he should play Christian Grey: Um... so hot. Am I right? Chris Hemsworth is a gorgeous specimen and he has those piercing blue eyes. He's the perfect mix of rugged and pretty. He's still relatively new as a leading man so I'm not sure how well he could carry himself this strong of a role. 

#6. Chris Pine

Why he should play Christian Grey: He's got the looks for sure. He's the right age and he's a great love interest in romcoms. Plus he was a pretty hot Kirk in Star Trek. I'm not sold on the personality yet. I think he's a bit flavourless and needs to be spicier! 
#7. Michael Fassbender

Why he should play Christian Grey: Oh Michael, you sexy beast you. I would love Michael in this role because I think he could definitely bring some character depth to Christian. He's a bit old for the role but with age comes a very sexy and distinguished look. 

#8. Armie Hammer

Why he should play Christian Grey: If Armie's face or name isn't ringing any bells, it's because he's still a rising star in Hollywood. Some of you may know him as the Winklevoss twins in The Social Network. I think his fresh, preppy look would be really welcome in this role. I'd be interested to see what he did with the it. 

#9. James Marsden

Why he should play Christian Grey: This one is a bit of an underdog, but when I saw this photo of him I thought to myself, 'I can see a Christian Grey thing happening here'. He usually goes for the comedic roles but maybe some light humour would make Christian Grey more appealing? 

#10. Henry Cavill

Why he should play Christian Grey: I know I said that this was in no particular order, but I lied. I saved the best for last, ladies! Henry Cavill has the perfect face, body and dashing charm for Christian Grey. He's already set to be the new Superman and I cannot wait to see him in that suit. Can you blame me?

So chicks, who is your pick to play Christian Grey? Any ideas as to who should play the leading lady Anastasia Steele?

These three have the smouldering brooding sexy look about them :-) The others are cute too! But not brooding enough to be Christian Grey!

Matt Bomer, I've never read 50 shades but he looks the most like the way the main character is generally described.
