The battle for who will play the leading role of Christian Grey in the upcoming movie "Fifty Shades of Grey" is still underway, and it looks as though there is a new contender in town.
Jessie Pavelka, host of get-fit show “Diet Tribe,” has risen up in the list of fan favorites.
“With the perfectly sculpted abs, chiselled jaw and smouldering stare, it's obvious why Jessie is a strong candidate for the part,” says the International Business Times. “Given E.L. James and the production studio had wanted low-profile stars for the role, then Jessie could just be the one for the film.”
Avoiding high-profile actors has been a concern with potential players such as Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, as “Fifty Shades” producers are afraid that viewers will not be able to see anyone other than their immensely popular Twilight characters.
The “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie is due to be released in August 2014. We’ll see who ends up playing the steamy male lead.
