"Fifty Shades of Grey" movie might have a "Superman" Christian Grey, as fan favorite Henry Cavill has recently been given the title "Breakout Actor of 2013." Twitter users also named Cavill as the actor with the "sexiest Christian Grey body."
In a Fandango report, Cavill is named as the "biggest male breakout movie star," and that is with regards only to the Superman film. If the British actor would also play the dashing Christian Grey, he would be an even bigger star among Hollywood's A-listers.
Following Cavill in Fandango's 'Breakout' ranking, from second to the fifth places are: Sam Claflin ("The Hunger Games: Catching Fire"), Armie Hammer ("The Lone Ranger"), Jai Courtney ("A Good Day to Die Hard"), and Nicholas Hoult ("Jack the Giant Slayer" and "Warm Bodies").
In a Twitter poll, Cavill also won out in a poll for "the best and sexiest Christian Grey body." User @50ShadesCasting shouts out, "The best thing? He's also a GREAT actor!"
Cavill, who came second to Daniel Craig in 2004 for the role of James Bond, is well-aware he is a fan favorite to play the role of billionaire sex demigod Christian Grey.
"Whether that happens, that decision will be made at the time it has to be made. It would be a very different kind of thing than Man of Steel," Cavill told Details magazine for its Dec 2012 issue.

"Fifty Shades of Grey" Movie to Get NC-17 Rating?
The 'Fifty Shades' producer and screenwriter recently spoke about movie ratings in recent interviews. However, there appears to be some sort of confusion between the two.
Screenwriter Kelly Marcel spoke to The Sunday Times, saying she intends to write a romantic but raunchy script out of E.L. James' trilogy. "It will be rated NC-17. It will be raunchy," Marcel was quoted as saying.
In reaction, producer Dana Brunetti, told The Hollywood Reporter, "A screenplay has not yet been written, a rating has not been designated, and we have no further comment."
What is clear from both quotes is that casting is not going to happen anytime soon. Both Marcel and Brunetti have said in previous interviews casting will only be taken care of once the script is done and a film director has been hired.
