'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie: 'Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder Reacts to Controversial Christian Grey Casting [PHOTOS]
"White Collar's" Matt Bomer isn't the only "Fifty Shades of Grey" fan favourite moving on from the casting drama because even "Vampire Diaries" Ian Somerhalder is. However, Ian has got a few things to say about the controversial casting. Is Ian a fan of Charlie Hunnam playing the part of Christian Grey?
Overzealous fans of E.L. James erotica novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey" are still disappointed with the casting choices for the film. Yet, producers are unlikely to change their minds about the casting given James and Brunetti stand firm in their choices.
Still, the fan petitions continue online wanting one actor to the next. As for the former fan favourites for the part of Christian Grey namely Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder, they've been focusing their attention elsewhere.
"White Collar's" Matt Bomer is currently shooting scenes for the shows' latest season and for an upcoming biopic of screen star legend, Montgomery Clift. Rather than feel depressed over losing the part of the "Sons of Anarchy" star, Matt Bomer is more than happy for Hunnam and Johnson for nabbing the lead roles.
"I'm so grateful for the fans and touched. I'm looking forward to seeing the movie with Charlie and Dakota," stated Bomer in an interview with E! Online.
The same goes for "Vampire Diaries" star, Ian Somerhalder. Contrary to what reports claim that Ian is "upset" and "angry" for not nabbing the part of Christian Grey, Ian isn't even the least bit affected.
"It's so funny, you read these blogs: 'Ian Somerhalder angry, livid he's not Christian Grey' -- I mean, no, no, no, there's none of that," said Ian in a report by Huffington Post.
Like Bomer, Somerhalder is "grateful" for the support he's been getting for the part but with a television series that has got him working ten months in a year, there was no chance for Ian to nab the part in the first place.
