The mission to find a Christian for the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie gets steamier with every passing day. Ian Somerhalder and Stephen Amell are two leading men that fans are currently fighting over. Both CW men (Vampire Diaries, Arrow) have commented about the possibility of them playing the role.
Earlier Ian teased about him taking on the role of Christian Grey on “Watch What Happens Live.”
“I think they have a very big job ahead of them, casting this role... So, I can't say anything other than, it's a very interesting story and whoever plays that role is going to have a lot of fun rehearsal time,” said Ian as he discussed the rumors of him being in the Fifty Shades film.
Andy replied, “I think that means he's doing it, you guys.”
Stephen Amell isn’t just sitting back while Ian gets all the attention. He released a video on his Facebook page discussing the role.
Stephen said, “I get questions about Christian Grey all the time. 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."
It sounds like the two know that they are top contenders for the role.
