Since the announcement that the movie rights to E.L. James’ book “Fifty Shades Of Grey” has been picked up, there have numerous rumors circulating across the internet about who should take the lead roles. Several actors have already spoken about taking the lead role of Christian Grey in the movie adaptation. “Vampire Diaries” actor Ian Somerhalder has expressed an interest in the role, along with Chris Pine and “True Blood” actor Joe Manganiello.
Now, another star is stepping forward to offer himself up for the role of the uber successful billionaire — Alexander Skarsgard. There is no question that he can pull off the hot and suave behavior as someone who is too rich and handsome for his own good. He plays Eric Northman on “True Blood” very nicely, but can it translate to “Fifty Shades”?
Skarsgard joked after hearing all of the saucy book’s details, “I was born to play that part!” Was he? He said, “Where do I sign? He’s got a sex chamber? My character has that on True Blood. He’s got this little dungeon.”
For all of the rumors that we’ve heard, who do you think should play Christian Grey?
