E.L. James was inspired by Twilight's Bella and Edward when she wrote her erotic book series, Fifty Shades of Grey — so why not cast a vampire in the lead role of Christian? Two of Hollywood’s hottest bloodsuckers, True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard and Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder, both say they’re up for the sexy role.
“He’s got a sex chamber? My character has that on True Blood," Skarsgard tells Access Hollywood, referring to his character, Eric Northman. “I was born to play that part."
Not so fast, Skars. Somerhalder told Ryan Seacrest, "I absolutely would be up for that. It could be very, very amazing … I have the book and I just started reading it. That would be a pretty incredible thing, and hopefully that could pan out."
In the red-hot series, Grey is described as 27, wealthy, and smokin’ hot. Both Skarsgard and Somerhalder are in their 30s, but we’ll let that slide.
Alright, fang fans. Which hottie do you want to see doing dirty deeds on the big screen?
