Another ‘couple’ is now in the running for the steamy leading roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the upcoming “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie. Recent fan favorites for the roles are Alexander Skarsgard and Ellen Page.
“These two have been linked together for a while, especially after co-starring in ‘The East’ together and showing some suspicious PDA on red carpets and in public,” says Fashion & Style.
Skarsgard denies the rumors, saying that if he "was really dating every woman I've been linked to, I would never be out of bed!" Regardless of whether or not the couple is dating in reality, however, fans seem to think they’d still make a fabulous on-screen duo for the movie.
According to the Examiner, Skarsgard expressed absolute interest in the role, saying "me playing Christian wouldn't be an issue. I even have a sex chamber in my basement-my "True Blood" character does-so I've had [the necessary] training."
As far as Page goes, she might not seem at first like the most suitable choice for the sexy Anastasia Steele. However, fans are saying that “the 26-year-old actress has the fair complexion, full lips … and obviously the skill ... to transform from a shy, mousy college student to Mr. Grey's favorite sub."
