Robert Pattinson sparked rumors about him playing Christian Grey in the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie when he invited the book's author, E.L. James, to a party more than a week ago. According to OK magazine, Pattinson and James did discuss the role.
“Rob and E.L. were in deep conversation,” a source told the magazine. “Rob also joked that it would be the best acting of his life, because there is no way he is that confident in real life.”
Pattinson has remained a fan favorite for the Grey role ever since the movie was announced.
Other actors wanted for the role are Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer and Henry Cavill.
"Fifty Shades of Grey" is slated for release Aug. 1, 2014.
