Fifty Shades of Grey Movie: Stephen Amell Will Not Be Playing Christian Grey

Fans hoping to see Arrow star, Stephen Amell cast as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie are going to be dissapointed. Amell will not be playing the kinky billionaire, according to his Facebook page.

"Was on a flight yesterday evening back to LA with no movie, so I grabbed 50 Shades of Grey and burned through it," Amell wrote. "Ummm... I hope they get the movie made, and I'm sure someone will be excellent in it. That person will not be me."

Amell has been a fan favorite since Fifty Shades of Grey casting rumors began to heat up. He sent fans in a frenzy when he announced on Facebook that he had taken a meeting about the movie.

"I had a meeting with the studio that is doing that movie, and we spoke about it," Amell told Jay Leno. "I anecdotally brought it up on my Facebook page, which I didn't realise was real news now! I've operated my page the same way when I had 200 friends, and now I have more than that. And all of a sudden it was this big news story."
