The small screen has always been 50 shades of sexy, thanks to the parade of hot actors steaming up our favorite TV programming.

The Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder is currently leading Wetpaint Entertainment’s dreamcasting poll for the role of Christian Grey in the upcoming film version of Fifty Shades of Grey but will he still dominate if we focus only on TV stars and cast the net a little wider in TV land?

White Collar star Matt Bomer has long been a fan-favorite possibility, and True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard once joked, “I have a sex chamber in my basement — my character on True Blood — so I've had training.” In other words, both men are certainly strong(-jawed) possibilities.

Now it’s time to make the tough call: Of the following TV hotties, who’d make the absolute best Christian?

 

Good news: The movie will be rated NC-17.
