In an interview with Ian Somerhalder this morning, Ryan Seacrest asked him whether he would be interested in playing the character of Christian Grey in the popular New-York Times Bestselling fiction 50 Shades Of Grey that will be turned into a movie. His answer? "Oh goodness! Potentially. I absolutely would be up for that... Absolutely. That would be a pretty incredible thing. And hopefully that could pan out, I think."
A lot of fans have been wanting Ian to play the role because of his smoldering blue eyes and dashing looks, he would fit the naughty (and sometimes nice) role very well! He does do it pretty darn well on Vampire Diaries.
Later in the day, he tweeted about the interview saying: "Had a BLAST with @ryanseacrest on the show. Ryan,Ill do my VERY best to make this 50 Shades of Grey role happen-you come for a set visit???"
When asked if he has read the books, Ian said: "I have the book and I just started reading it." That means he probably doesn't know that the rest of the book has some pretty X-rated scenes that he would have to act out if he played the role of Christian. One of those scenes will involve him get naked, YES NAKED!
Um, anyone else really want this role to happen? Because I sure do.
If you don't know what the book is about, it's basically about a college graduate named Anastasia Steele and billionaire man Christian Grey. Steele is forced to sign a contract allowing him to control her life, and as she learns his different sides, she also learns that he's very sex-crazed and his childhood abuse left him a damanged individual.
I definitely want to read this book, seems pretty interesting! Especially if Ian is picked to play the role of Christian, then I'll have to read it because if you know me then you know I love Ian Somerhalder.
Do you think Ian Somerhalder is the right person to play the role of Christian Grey or do you have someone else in mind?
