Apparently, Ian Somelhalder has made it quite clear that he is interested in playing the role of Christian Grey, and for a while there it seemed as though he may have forged ahead as the top pick for the sexy part. Now, though, there are a few other tough contenders.
Lately, Henry Cavill from “Man of Steel” and Matt Bomer from “White Collar” have been runners up as well. All three men have a similar tall-dark-handsome with piercing blue eyes look.
As far as Cavill goes, the Huffington Post says that “from Superman's tight suit in 'Man Of Steel' to stripping off for racy sex scenes as Christian Grey, the British actor could be about to earn himself even more female fans.” And for Bomer? Well, the International Business Times says that “despite [his] negative reaction towards the role, fans still consider him the strongest contender.”
We shall see. In this case, it seems there simply are too many “pluses” and very few “minuses” for each.
