Fifty Shades of Grey: Ian Somerhalder Is Top Choice For Christian Grey
Captain Obvious is here with breaking news — many fans really want The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder to play Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey films! You knew this. We knew this. Now even more people know it.
The Daily Mail of the UK shared a poll conducted by sex toy site lovehoney.co.uk (!), and Ian topped the list of potential Christian Greys, followed by new Superman Henry Cavill, then Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender and Alexander Skarsgard.
Who should play his love interest, Anastasia Steele? As much as we love Ian’s The Vampire Diaries co-star (and ex-girlfriend) Nina Dobrev, fans seem to be going in a different direction for Ana. Gilmore Girls alum Alexis Bledel got the top vote, followed by Anne Hathaway (really?!) then Emma Stone, Mila Kunis, and Elizabeth Olsen. Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale has ranked high on other fan lists, but she wasn’t a major draw on this one.
Also in the poll, the Daily Mail reports, a full 90 percent of fans said it would be a mistake to water down the sex scenes from the books for the movies. (Keep in mind, this poll was conducted on a sex toy site!) And fans were split 50/50 on whether American or British stars should take the lead rolls.
What do you think? Do you agree with this poll’s Christian/Ana choices? Do you think they should keep the sex scenes close to the books or tone them down a bit so the movies can reach a wider audience?
