Alexander Skarsgard on Playing Christian Grey: “Of Course” (VIDEO)
Call Alexander Skarsgard Christian Grey, maybe?
“You have to play Christian Grey,” a fan screamed at Alex during the Toronto Film Festival premiere of What Maisie Knew. “You have to play him!”
Although the True Blood star wouldn’t give fans a straight answer on the red carpet, he did tell ET Canada that he would consider tackling the steamy Fifty Shades of Grey role.
“Of course. If it’s a great script,” he told ET Canada, but added that there are “so many variables” in his decision. “It depends on who’s directing it and who’s in it.”
And while he finds it “difficult to answer” questions since he hasn’t read the books, he is thankful for the offers.
“Well, thank you,” he said in response to his rallying fans. “That’s nice, I guess!”
For now, we’ll just have to cross our fingers that he’ll star in a remake of Lolita, which he recently told The New York Times is his dream role.
You can watch the clip in the video below, and as a bonus, Ryan Gosling also spills about potentially tackling the role!
