'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie Casting: Theo James as Christian Grey [PHOTOS]
Shailene Woodley of "Divergent" isn't the only star of the said film adaptation eyed as a potential lead for "Fifty Shades of Grey." Woodley's onscreen love interest, Theo James, is also being eyed by producers to play the part of Christian Grey. Is Theo James the next possible star for the part?
E.L. James has been quite mum about casting details and snarky in answering cast-related questions on Twitter. For one, new names were constantly added each week. Late last week, Bryce Thompson, Charlie Hunnam and Chris Evans were three of the latest additions to the Christian Grey potential cast. Now, Christian Cooke along with Theo James is an actor eyed for the part.
While Christian Cooke is relatively unknown in the Hollywood biz, Theo James is already making a name for himself. James stars as Four in the upcoming film adaptation of Veronica Roth's' "Divergent" opposite Shailene Woodley. All thanks to that, fans of "Fifty Shades" think James is the perfect actor for the part of Christian Grey.
Taking into account his age, Theo James falls right in between the age qualification for Christian Grey which is between the ages of 25 and 33. Considering his physical attributes, James is certainly good looking. As for Theo James acting out Christian Grey, a firm lover of BDSM, well it looked like it'll be easy for James given he did want to kiss Shailene Woodley in "Divergent" pretty "hard."
"I just went at it hard, to be honest, because I thought that's how she wanted it. I thought to assuage any awkwardness I would just go for it. She was kind of batting away my hands," explained James during an interview with MTV, adding, "It was kind of nice because we had Miles as Peter literally in the background as we were kissing. He was making hissing noises which actually added to the sexuality."
