Who Does Ian Somerhalder Want to Play Anastasia Steele?
Ian Somerhalder has expressed serious interest in the role of BDSM devotee Christian Grey in the movie version of E.L. James’s novel/“mommy porn” Fifty Shades of Grey — and a lot of fans agree he’d be perfect for the part. In late April, the Vampire Diaries star delighted women everywhere when he told Ryan Seacrest, “I absolutely would be up for it. [...] Beyond a shadow of a doubt, I believe that would be a phenomenal opportunity.”
However, not wanting to get in trouble with his Vampire Diaries co-star/real-life girlfriend Nina Dobrev, Ian refused to dream-cast the role of Anastasia, Christian’s young protegee. He joked to Ryan, “I’m going to think about that.”
