A Fresh List of Stars Nominated to Play Christian Grey in 'Fifty Shades of Grey' [PHOTOS]


Everyone who has read E.L. James' best-selling erotica novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey", is tired of seeing the same names of actors up for the lead roles. Robert Pattinson, Ian Somerhalder and Alexander Skarsgard have been mentioned over a hundred times as potential actors to play Christian Grey. Well, here's a new list of alternative actors who could most likely bring life to the 27-year old, brooding entrepreneur.

First up is the actor known for the role as Anakin Skywalker in the highly-acclaimed "Star Wars". This actor's most recent works include "Jumper" where he literally "jumped" from one place to another. Give it up for Hayden Christensen. The 31-year old actor might be too old to play Christian but age aside, Hayden could definitely play the domineering Mr. Grey.

Who better to play Christian Grey than the hottest man alive, Ryan Gosling? From "The Notebook" to "Drive", Gosling has been showcasing promising talent plus a tantalising body to boot. The question is: would Gosling not mind parading his "essentials" on the big screen plus getting rough and rowdy as well?

Another "tenured" actor in the film business whose name has been thrown around lately would be John Stamos. Though 48-year- old is a far cry from 27, John does have "potentially" good looks enough to be cast as Grey. However, John would be better of cast as Christian Grey's father if he was in the book.

Matt Bomer, who strips off for "Magic Mike", has also been included in a few fan lists of a potential Christian Grey. Judging from the minimal wardrobe, sinewy muscles plus sweat covered body, Matt would definitely find it easy to do a few action-pumping scenes for "Fifty Shades of Grey".

Ian Somehalder of "Vampire Diaries" may have a bit of competition in co-star, Joseph Morgan. While Ian is busy with his campaign, fans of Joseph Morgan are busy with theirs as well. Yet, who among the two vampires are best set to play Mr. Grey?

"Immortals'" Henry Cavill, "Love and Other Drugs''" Jake Gyllenhaal, "Gossip Girls''" Chace Crawford, "Avengers''" Chris Evans and "Never Back Down's'" Sean Faris are just a few new names added to the list of probable actors to play Christian Grey.
