HomeTVArrowStephen Amell vs. Matt Bomer: Who Should Play Christian Grey in 50 Shades of Grey? Luke Kerr March 22, 2013 Arrow, Pop Confidential, The CW, TV, USA Network, White Collar 11 Comments Could Arrow’s Stephen Amell land the high-profile role of Christian Grey in the 50 Shades of Grey movie? In a Facebook video, Amell teased fans with the tidbit he’d had a meeting about the role, but cautioned that the project is a long way off. "I get questions about Christian Grey all the time," he says in the post. "That project is a long way off. I know this, because I had a meeting about it. Long way off. I mean, not that long, but not close. I wouldn't call it long, but I wouldn't call it close." Amell’s video comes at a time when Harry Potter’s Emma Watson is denying rumors she’s been cast as the naïve, but equally sought after role of Anastasia Steele, Zap2it reports. Magic Mike, White Collar and former Guiding Light star Matt Bomer is another hunk whose name keeps popping up as a possibility to portray Christian Grey.

Both of which really light my fire!! Shallow, I know. But……. :love: Log in to Reply Yoryla March 22, 2013 I have to go with Bomer. The other good does look good too, but still. #TeamBomer all the way!

Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 March 22, 2013 TV Gord- Sofia Vergara is too busy still trying to pry off her Emmy dress with clothes hangers and the jaws of life………… Log in to Reply TV Gord March 22, 2013 Bahahahaha. I prefer her in clothes that look as though they’re about to fall off all on their own. (Back on topic…now, to ponder who should be her female lead…) Log in to Reply NathanHastingsSr. March 22, 2013 Bomer has zero sex appeal. He tried it in Magic Mike hahaha Log in to Reply pferrando March 22, 2013 Don’t know either, but I’d take the dude on the left. Hot! Log in to Reply BornSoapStar March 24, 2013 If I had to choose between the above two I would choose Stephen Amell, but I also would like to see Alex Skarsgard or Ian Somerhalder. Log in to Reply Scooter Smith March 25, 2013 If it had to be one of these two, it would have to be Amell. I have never been able to see Bomer as the brooding/possesive/sexual person Christian has to be. I could see him being Christian’s brother, but not Christian.
