Rumors of Alexander Skarsgard playing Christian Grey are fifty shades of squashed.

Although fans have rallied for A. Skars to play the leading man in Fifty Shades of Grey’s film adaptation, he claims it won’t be happening anytime soon.

“There’s no script and no director,” Alexander told GQ Style in their September print edition, adding, “I haven’t read the books.”

And while he won’t be playing the BDSM-loving billionaire, he has a vague idea about what Christian likes. “It’s about a guy with a sex chamber in his basement?” he asked. Well … kind of.

He may be off the hook from the rumor mill right now, but that doesn’t mean his name won’t resurface once casting is actually under way. But for now, Alex is committing to one thing: a house!

After eight years of “living out of suitcases and cardboard boxes,” he bought a home during a weekend off, choosing LA’s bohemian neighborhood Los Feliz because it is “a little removed from the madness.”

Do you think Alexander fits the bill for Christian Grey? Tell us below!
