If James Deen can survive co-starring in a film with Lindsay Lohan, he can survive anything. Does that mean taking on one of the most coveted film roles in recent years?

James Deen is starring in the upcoming film, The Canyons, with Lindsay Lohan, and he has appeared in, ahem, nearly 4,000 adult films. So it would seem he might be more than qualified to play Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

“It seems like a character I could have a lot of fun with,” James tells Entertainment Weekly. “I’ve heard really mixed responses about it, like, ‘Oh, it’s a cheesy Twilight wannabe.’… [but] I think it could be fun. I feel like it could be a really cool, fun role to work on.”

Of course, he's aware that he might not be the first name that a big movie studio would think of.

“I’m that porn guy,” he admits. “As I understand, the rumors [for Christian] are some guy who’s on a TV show on USA [Matt Bomer], some model dudes, and Ryan Gosling. I feel like me versus Ryan Gosling? There’s an easy decision on where the studio is going to go." 

"But if I got offered the role, I would definitely consider it," James continues. "If they wanted me to audition, I would absolutely go in and read for them.”

James made headlines earlier this month when an audio recording surfaced of Lindsay Lohan yelling at him to do his "f**king job" on the set of their upcoming film.

So we're not sure if any fans of the book would like James as Christian, but it certainly sounds like he's interested. 

Still, we must say we're not impressed that James had to go and diss Matt Bomer. Not cool, dude!
