Chace Crawford Would “Love The Challenge” Of Playing Christian Grey
It looks like yet another Hollywood star wants the task of playing Christian Grey on the big screen, and this time it’s Chace Crawford. “I would love the challenge. I have not read the books, but what I know is that it is risqué, and to be honest, anything to shake up from the way I have been going would be good,” Chace told Fox News.
“I am only comfortable with S&M sex scenes! The other ones are just too simple and boring for me,” joked the Gossip Girl star, who has definitely had his fair share of love scenes on the small screen with former costars Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Elizabeth Hurley.
E.L. James’ book Fifty Shades of Grey has already sold 60 million copies worldwide and the film is expected to perform extremely well at the box office. No wonder so many Hollywood hotties want a piece of the action. In the book, Christian Grey is described as a 27-year-old multi-millionaire with a penchant for S&M. In the book Christian Grey is described as being tall, well-dressed with “unruly dark-copper-colored hair and intense, bright gray eyes.”
Chace Crawford isn’t the only Hollywood heartthrob to express interest in playing Christian Grey. As we mentioned earlier, Ian Somerhalder hopes to be considered for the part.

Another actor who wants a piece of the action? True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard. “Where do I sign?” said Alexander jokingly about playing the part of Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey when speaking to the Daily Chilli. “He’s got a sex chamber? My character has that on True Blood. He’s got his little dungeon… I was born to play that part,” he added with a grin, of Christian.”
Other notable actors who fans want to play Christian Grey include Les Miserables Eddie Redmayne, Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick, Ryan Gosling and Alex Pettyfer of Magic Mike.
