Ian Somerhalder in Fifty Shades of Grey: 5 Suited-Up Photos Prove He Should Play Christian

Since Fifty Shades of Grey first hit bookshelves (well, internet e-bookshelves), fans have rallied for Ian Somerhalder to play titular kinky billionaire Christian Grey in the film adaptation. Though he was reportedly never considered for the role the first time around, now that Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the movie, he has a second chance.

While we could list hundreds of reasons why he’s perfect for the role — his smoldering good looks, charm, and how the book was originally based on Twilight vamps Edward and Bella — but at the end of the day, it comes down to how incredible he looks in a suit.

Though we didn’t round up 50 photos, we have five of Ian’s suited-up looks that prove he should play Christian. Turn on a fan, then click through the gallery to see if you agree.
