It’s still a battle for the lead role of Christian Grey in the much-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie. While Ian Somerhalder looked for a while like he was the top choice, a new man has joined the scene: Paul Walker.

Although Walker has indeed shown interest in the role, he says that what’s most important to him in a role like this all comes down to chemistry. “It would be really important to have incredible chemistry with whoever the girl was and it couldn’t be something you would have to force. I think the people need to spend a lot of time together and intimate time would probably help,” he says.

However, potentially casting Walker has hit some roadbumps. “Fans of ‘Fifty,’” explains the International Business Times, argue that Walker is "too old to play the part of a 27-year old entrepreneur.” He looks the part, though, so we’ll see who will be getting steamy as casting for the film continues.
