Stephen Amell vs. Matt Bomer: Who Should Play Christian Grey in 50 Shades of Grey?



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.

I read all three books, the only person I could picture as Christian is Alexander Skarsgard from True Blood.

From these two choices, I must choose Bomer........because he's sexy and gay. Both of which really light my fire!! Shallow, I know. But....... Love

Bomer has zero sex appeal. He tried it in Magic Mike hahaha

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...)

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.

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.
