Zac Efron has become the newest contender for the role of Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. A new, fan-made trailer features Efron as Grey and Kirsten Dunst as Anastasia Steele.

While Efron may have the smoldering good looks to play Grey, at 22 he may be to young to play the 27-year-old billionaire. However, after a pretty kinky shower scene with Nicole Kidman in The Paperboy, Efron could probably handle the role.

"Zac might be a bit too baby-faced to play a dark and disturbed man like Christian Grey, but he's certainly hot enough to get the ladies' pulses racing," Gather Entertainment writes. "He also proved that he can probably handle shooting the many awkward sex scenes in 50 Shades - after letting Nicole Kidman pee on him in The Paperboy, stripping down and spanking a woman should be a piece of cake."

Efron also filmed a sex scene with Heather Graham for At Any Price.

"Zac is just really together," Graham said. "I'm so amazed by how smart and hard working he is. And he has the craziest fans of any actor I've ever worked with ... like they're screaming and waiting outside the set for hours."

"I've been a fan of Heather's and had a crush on her since I can remember," Efron told the New York Post. "She's always been the epitome of that perfect girl. I wanted to get it right."
