Henry Cavill In Talks To Play Christian Grey In Fifty Shades Of Grey?
Will Henry Cavill go from playing Superman in 2013’s Man of Steel to bedding Anastasia Steele in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey? It sounds like he might! Let’s start from the beginning of rumoured actors tied to the part of Christian Grey.
We’ve been obsessing about who will play Christian Grey in the big screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey for quite some time now. A while back, we told you all about how Fifty Shades of Grey author EL James’ husband Niall Leonard told the UK’s Now magazine that the “last he heard” Ryan Gosling was the No. 1 choice to play Christian Grey in the film adaption of the erotic novel.
Um, yeah, Ryan Gosling as Christian Grey would definitely be a dream come true. Although Ryan has been quick to shoot down rumours that he has any attachment to the film, we are definitely psyched that more of our favourite Hollywood hotties are addressing their desire to be a part of what will no doubt be the craziest Hollywood event of the 21st century. Imagine if The Secretary had the same obsessive fans as The Twilight Saga, and that’s what we imagine the Fifty Shades of Grey opening weekend will be like! Hence why The Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerholder definitely wants to be a part of it. When E!’s Ryan Seacrest asked him earlier this fall if he’d be interested in the part, he responded, “I absolutely would be up for that… Absolutely. That would be a pretty incredible thing. And hopefully that could pan out, I think.”

The latest star to suggest he might be in talks to star in Fifty Shades of Grey as the S&M-loving CEO Christian Grey? Henry Cavill! When asked about his possible involvement in the soon to be epic film event, the Man of Steel star said, rather vaguely, to Details magazine: “Whether that happens, that decision will be made at the time it has to be made. It would be a very different kind of thing than ‘Man of Steel.”
Um, we don’t exactly want to spread a rumour that’s not true, but usually when celebrities have nothing to do with a film, that’s when they flat-out insist that they have nothing to do with the film in question. It sounds like Henry is beating around the bush just a little bit. Can you imagine if Henry tops off playing Superman in 2013’s Man of Steel opposite Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, and Kevin Costner to bedding Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey? We can dream!
