Fifty Shades of Grey: Matt Bomer Is Christian — In New Fan Trailer
We still don’t know who will play the lead roles in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie. But it’s no secret that the book’s fans have a few choices of their own in mind — and one of them happens to be a former Glee guest star.
Fifty Shades fanatics have started creating their own movie trailers featuring footage of the actors whom they would like to see cast in the film, and a popular new one features Glee’s Matt Bomer — aka Blaine’s (Darren Criss) sexy old brother, Cooper — as Christian Grey opposite Alexis Bledel as Anastasia Steele.
The perspiration-inducing trailer certainly makes a strong case for how amazing Matt would be as Christian, in all his suit-wearing glory. Even though Matt is 35, while Christian is supposed to be 27, we can see Matt as a dead ringer for Christian.
Sadly, none of the footage of Matt appears to be taken from his hilarious turn as Blaine’s thespian bro on Glee. The scenes of him are mostly from White Collar, while Alexis’s seem to be largely from her 2009 film Post Grad.
Also seen in the trailer are snippets of Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester, who would play minor roles.
Matt Bomer for Christian movement certainly has his supporters. In addition to general popularity online, he’s also Wetpaint Entertainment reader’s top pick for the role. In our poll of which sexy TV actor should play Christian, Matt received a whopping 33% of the votes, second only to Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick but beating out The Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder.
So will Matt get the part? Let’s just say we’ll be fit to be tied if he doesn’t.
