Casting calls are still in the works for the upcoming movie rendition of E.L. James’ “Fifty Shades of Grey” book. While a number of sexy Hollywood stars and starlets have been rumored to be the “one” for the leading roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, the final decisions have yet to be made.
Actor Ian Somerhalder has been a long-time favorite pick for the hunky lead role, but here’s a new one on the chopping block for a potential Anastasia Steele: Jennifer Love Hewitt.
"Oh my god, I would love to play Anastasia Steele," Hewitt says. "This would be a dream role. I'd love to do it," she adds. "I books are so naughty. I love them."
We certainly know by now that Hewitt can take on sexy roles, but “whether or not she lands the leading role, Hewitt knows whom she wants to play Christian Grey,” says EnStarz. "I heard they were throwing around Ian Somerhalder,” she says. “He would be a great Christian.”
Though Hewitt is currently sporting quite a baby belly, she’s still dreaming about playing a steamy role in the film. "It would be awkward now,” she says, but “I won't be pregnant forever."
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is due for release in August 2014.
