Fifty Shades of Grey Casting: Drew Van Acker, Chace Crawford, Alex Pettyfer as Elliot Grey Candidates? [PHOTOS]
Fifty Shades of Grey movie, the film adaptation of E.L. James' erotic series, must cast a very charming Elliott, adoptive elder brother of lead character Christian Grey. He seduces ladies with his blue eyes and a body as gorgeously sexy as the younger Grey. Who should play Elliott among the hottest celebs today?
Drew Van Acker, Chace Crawford, and Alex Pettyfer are all ways under 30s, which is how old Elliott Grey is at the beginning of the Fifty Shades trilogy. Still, Hollywood can make things work in the movies. It won't be surprising if any one of these lovely young men would land the Elliott role.
Drew Van Acker. Drew currently stars in "Devious Maids" as Remi Delatour, the object of affection of a young maid named Valentina (Edy Ganem). He happens to be attracted to Valentina, too. A rich guy who doesn't see social status as reason to not date the girl can look three times hotter than he already is. And Drew is pretty darn hot. If he gets the Elliott Grey role, it is easy to style him up to look years older.
Chace Crawford. As Nate Archibal in the defunct series "Gossip Girl," Chace has won the hearts of women -- apparently both young and old -- with his pretty rich boy vibe and enchanting blue eyes. He's been several women in the series, including Blake Lively's Serena van der Woodsen, Leighton Meester's Blair Waldorf, and Elizabeth Hurley's Diana Payne. Many people say Chace is actually Christian Grey material, but playing Elliott won't be so bad for him at all.
Alex Pettyfer. Alex is a scene stealer in Channing Tatum's "Magic Mike" (2012). This indulgent male stripper film also starred Matt Bomer, a candidate for the Christian Grey role. He also led the cast of "I Am Number Four" (2011) as alien John Smith. In both films, he oozed with sex appeal, even as an alien. He's got the laid-back and rugged demeanor not very suitable for Christian Grey, but he nails every aspect of Elliott Grey.
Fifty SHades of Grey movie is coming to theatres in August 2014. Who among Drew Van Acker, Chace Crawford, and Alex Pettyfer is the best guy to play Elliott Grey?
