'Beautiful Bastard' Movie Casting: Actors Who Could Play Bennett Ryan [PHOTOS]
Matt Bomer, Henry Cavill and Ian Somerhalder might not have successfully nabbed the part of Christian Grey in "Fifty Shades of Grey" but that doesn't mean they aren't eyed for another racy role. The highly-acclaimed next "Fifty Shades" called "Beautiful Bastard" by Christina Lauren is set for its film adaptation. With that being said, Matt, Henry and Ian are just a few hunks eyed by fans to play the male lead Bennett Ryan.
Fans of E.L. James erotica novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" are still reeling from disappointment following the official cast announcement. Charlie Hunnam of "Sons of Anarchy" had nabbed the part of Christian Grey and not fan favourite, Matt Bomer. Obviously, a petition won't change the minds of the producers and of the author.
Rather than sulking in the corner, fans of "Fifty" should definitely get their hands on the other erotica novel making waves on the web and around the world. "Beautiful Bastard" written by Christina Lauren is said to be the next "Fifty Shades" with staggering amounts of romance and sex in the S&M kind of way.
The story once again takes place in the office involving the boss, Bennett Ryan and his assistant, Chloe Mills. Unlike Christian Grey who is a gentleman at everything he does and says, Bennett Ryan may be beautiful but he's one heck of a prick.
Quite a few favourites for Christian Grey have already been eyed by fans of Lauren's book to play Bennett Ryan. Notable contenders include Matt Bomer, Henry Cavill, Ian Somerhalder and Robert Pattinson. Check out the slideshow to see all the Hollywood hunks eyed for the part of Bennett Ryan for "Beautiful Bastard."
