‘The Vampire Diaries’ star Ian Somerhalder shares his thoughts on playing the lead in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’.
Author E.L. James made headlines after her hit book ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ garnered her a FOUR MILLION DOLLAR paycheck for the movie rights. Being dubbed as “mommy porn” for its sexy and graphic nature doesn’t scare off potential leading man Ian Somerhalder. When asked by Ryan Seacrest what he thought about his name being tossed around for the part of Christian Grey in the racy big screen version, he shared:
“Oh goodness! Potentially. I absolutely would be up for that… Absolutely. That would be a pretty incredible thing. And hopefully that could pan out, I think. It could be amazing. It could be very, very amazing”.
Who do you see as your Christian Grey in the movie adaptation? Do you think they’ll be able to pull this off on the big screen, knowing the content of the story? Do you think the studio will have to water it down so much that fans won’t be, pardon the pun, turned on?
