'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie Casting: Bryce Thompson as Christian Grey [PHOTOS]
British fashion model Cara Delevingne was rumoured to have auditioned for a part in the film adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey." All thanks to Cara's brave move, it has inspired another model to go after the lead part in the BDSM-themed film. Men's Health model Bryce Thompson auditioned for the role and this isn't just another rumour.
After months of speculation, fans of E.L. James' best-selling erotica novel have one official name to watch out for. Well, Bryce Thompson hasn't nabbed the role of Christian Grey yet, but he has auditioned for it. Thompson confirmed all this on his official Twitter account.
"Just at audition phases. Working on it," tweeted Bryce.
Of course, Bryce's fans are nothing short of pleased with the model that has got quite the looks that may be suitable for the part. Thompson also falls between the age categories wanted by producers. For the casting call, producers wanted an extremely good-looking male between the ages of 25 and 33. The model, Thompson, is 30 years of age, making him suitable for the part. As for his looks, Bryce has green hair and brown eyes.
When it comes to acting experience, Bryce doesn't have the credential for it. Unlike another male model eyed for the role of Christian Grey, Devin Paisley. A few models that started out small before auditioning for big movie roles include Channing Tatum, Chace Crawford and Ian Somerhalder. Thompson could definitely learn a thing or two from them.
Still, Bryce Thompson has officially auditioned for the role. Is Thompson the Christian Grey producers and E.L. James have been waiting for? Check out the slideshow to see more of this male model who has covered a few magazines including Men's Health.
