The “Fifty Shades Of Grey” movie is slowly becoming a reality. After Sam Taylor-Johnson was announced as the director of the first film, all eyes and ears are on who will land one of the hottest sought after roles in Hollywood … that of Christian Grey. While “Arrow” star Stephen Amell was said to have had a meeting regarding the role, “Vampire Diaries” actor Ian Somerhalder is still being questioned by fans about the kinky character.
“One can never get bored of people asking about a huge project,” Somerhalder, 34, told Metro Online. “Everyone has to realize every guy in Hollywood is up for this role. It could be anyone – that’s how that goes.” Ian Somerhalder may be playing coy about the role, but “Fifty” devotees are bent on getting the “Vampire Diaries” bad boy to star in the film. Fans made their own trailer for the movie with Somerhalder as Christian Grey and “Pretty Little Liars” actress Lucy Hale as his Anastasia Steele. The 30-second teaser trailer pieced together steamy scenes from both Somerhalder and Hale’s shows in an attempt to show “Fifty Shades” execs that the pair would sizzle on screen together.
