Teen heartthrob Taylor Lautner and alleged new girlfriend Marie Avgeropoulos have joined in the race to win leading roles in the upcoming film interpretation of E.L. James' “Fifty Shades of Grey” novel series.
As they are seemingly romantically involved, they might just have that chemistry that the film’s casting directors are looking for. However, MStars explains that Lautner has no shortage of romantic chemistry with the ladies; “he's previously dated Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and Los Angeles Clippers cheerleader (and former high school sweetheart) Sara Hicks. He was most recently romantically linked with "Abduction" co-star Lily Collins.”
Another concern that surrounds Lautner is his young age. At 21, he’s not necessarily up to speed with Christian Grey’s 27-year-old character. However, MStars reports that several Twitter fans love the idea:
@Crazyyy_Mads: "If Tatlor Lautner really did play the part of Christian Grey in the 50 Shades of Grey movie my life WOULD be complete #MySexyObsession #Yum."
@mn_perlmutter: "Zack just asked me if i thought taylor lautner or christian grey was hotter..then he said what if taylor lautner was christian grey #omg."
@Yus_Can1tez: "Taylor Lautner should play Christian from Fifty Shades of Grey and I will play Anastasia."
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is said to be coming out in August of 2014.
