'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie Casting: Kellan Lutz VS Liam Hemsworth as Elliot Grey [PHOTOS]
"Twilight" hunk, Kellan Lutz is still strongly eyed for the role of Elliot Grey in the upcoming film adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey." Yet, it looks like Kellan is about to get tough competition for the role with "Hunger Games" hunk, Liam Hemsworth. Who is best suited to play Elliot Grey: Kellan Lutz or Liam Hemsworth?
Surprisingly, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart aren't the only "Twilight" stars eyed for the lead roles in the film adaptation of E.L. James best-selling erotica novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey." Both Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz have been named potential stars in the film to play Anastasia Steele and Elliot Grey respectively.
In fact, Kellan Lutz is a strong candidate for the part and has already expressed interest in the role. Lutz might not know anything about the books but he does trusts his fans instinct in stating he's suited to play Christian Grey's older brother.
"I haven't read the books: I need to though,"stated Lutz, adding, "The fans saw similarities between Emmett (from Twilight) and Elliot. I don't know much about either."
Given Fashion & Styles' quick description of Elliot being "less serious and playful", Kellan is definitely the best actor for the part given his character in "Twilight", Emmett greatly resembles that of Elliot Grey. Yet, Lutz might have tough competition for the role in "Hunger Games" hunk, Liam Hemsworth.
Obviously, between the two Hemsworth brothers, Liam is the "less serious and more playful" of the two making him quite suitable to play Elliot Grey. Though a bit on the young side, Liam has proven he's got the acting chops and could pull off Elliot's character in the film adaptation.
With two big shots in the game, who is best suited to play Elliot Grey: Kellan Lutz of "Twilight" or Liam Hemsworth of "The Hunger Games?"
