Matt Bomer To Play Christian Grey In ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’? (PHOTO)

Matt Bomer To Play Christian Grey In 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'? (PHOTO)

If the latest cover of “Entertainment Weekly” is to be believed then the search for the actor who will play Christian Grey is over. Alas, the magazine reveals that “White Collar” star Matt Bomer is taking on the role of the S&M infatuated billionaire.

Fans pining away for “The Vampire Diaries” star Ian Somerhalder to take on the role must be upset — if this is even remotely true. Could it be?

The answer is….no! According to our sources, the cover of “Entertainment Weekly” showing Matt Bomer playing Christian Grey is a Photoshopped masterpiece. At this stage in the game, the movie execs are still short-listing actors and actresses to take on the lead roles in the movie. No casting decisions have been made.

Now you can sleep at night. Matt Bomer is not playing Christian….yet. We are still waiting with baited breath for the release of the casting list for the movie. In the meantime, who do you think would be a good fit to show off the red room of pain? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below!

    Ian Somerhalder isn’t a good actor and, for me, he doesn’t look like Christian Grey. Matt is better than Ian, but I wouldn’t like to see him as Christian. I still think that the character is so good and so hot that will be hard to choose the perfect actor to play him.

    They have chosen Garet Hedlund :(

    Matt Bomer is the PERFECT Christian Grey….so HOT and his acting is very versatile. I HOPE it’s NOT Ian Somerhalder . Ian tries TOO hard to look sexy.

    Colin Egglesfield would make a perfect Christian Grey- don’t think i can see the movie unless he’s the man

    Darren Criss should play Christian Grey. He’s hot and he can already play the piano and dance!

    Has anyone seen him in White Collar?  His acting is pretty stilted and unexpressive.

    I just don’t think Bomer can carry a movie role.

    If Matthew Bomer is a serious contender for the role of Christian Grey the director of the movie is going to study Bomer’s performance in White Collar and Glee and his recent movie role in Magic Mike and will see that Bomer has a very limited acting range and can’t carry a movie on his own.

    he is a very good looking man, and his looks would fit the role of christian grey.

  9. Jastherealist August 11, 2012 / 7:50 PM

    ian somerhadler needs to play christian hands down

  10. vee August 12, 2012 / 11:18 PM

    Ladies…. check out Henry Cavill

  11. ryanguzman August 15, 2012 / 2:56 PM

    NO! NOT MATT BOMER! What about Ryan Guzman, he is 26 and VERY HOT! I just looked him up after seeing a picture of him. He is in the STEP UP REVOLUTION movie. Or better yet find someone that fits the part and can play the role convincingly. Some new, fresh faced actor!!! Not an already established favorite.

    Liam hemsworth should play Christian grey. Hands down

  13. Annie241 August 17, 2012 / 1:31 PM

    Matt Boomer is the perfect Christian Grey, and Alexis Bledes for Ana, They would be so so perfect.

  14. hahahahah August 17, 2012 / 1:39 PM

    I watch white collar, read the book before i looked up anything online about the book and I was already set that Matt Bomer is the one and only actor that fits everything about christian PERFECTLY. And if you watch white collar like me, you know he is very talented and can play many different roles and I don’t see anyone else that can play it better than him. LOVE vampire diaries, love LOST LOVE ian somerholder, but no… he does NOT fit the part, there are certain things about him that do not fit Christian Grey. The author of this book needs to not make any decisions until she considers all the facts, she needs to treat this like her baby, the characters have to fit perfectly! and Matt Bomer is that, As Nina Dobrev is a good for Ana.

    • hahahaha August 17, 2012 / 1:41 PM

      Oh, and i will NEVER watch the movie if it is not matt, why because i HATE movies that do not resemble the book, and if matt doesn’t play the part then you completely trashed the book.

  15. julez August 18, 2012 / 11:32 PM

    Matt is very pretty that makes him looks great on magazine. However is acting skill is too blah, not good enough to carry such complicated character like Christian Grey

  16. suevega August 19, 2012 / 1:07 AM

    I agree that Bomer is Not the right choice for the part . I can see Bradley Cooper in this role more OR Scott Cann maybe!

  17. suevega August 19, 2012 / 1:11 AM

    BOMBER is not quite ready for a complicated role yet wish Clooney could do this role but the age thing it won’t work I guess

  18. 50shadesa August 20, 2012 / 4:58 AM

    what the hell??? no one fits the role perfectly but IAN SOMERHALDER. it should definitely be ian. no one else. puhlease think of what the movie will lose without him!

  19. Lu August 20, 2012 / 1:47 PM

    Christian Bale is Christian Grey. I know he’s not 27 but make up does wonders these days and he is the only guy I see that can nail Grey’s dark side to the spot.
    Also he’s hot!

  20. Naomi August 20, 2012 / 4:18 PM

    Matt will be the best to fit in Christian grey play. When I started reading the book his image came straight in my head. I hope the producer will be clever enough to choose Matthew boomer

  21. ausblonde August 24, 2012 / 9:12 AM

    Matt Bomer hands down!! Pure perfection!!

  22. MLG August 24, 2012 / 4:50 PM

    I had never heard of Matt Bomer, but after reading the books and then seeing him, he is BY FAR Christian personified!! I cannot believe the suggestions of Ian Somerhalder, Ryan Gosling (what??) or Alexander Skarsgard. They are nothing like the character described. NO!

  23. bluebeck August 24, 2012 / 4:51 PM

    No i don’t think he fits christian .. i still think ryan gosling cos if i remember rightly christian has copper coloured hair…

  24. ANNETTE August 26, 2012 / 3:55 AM

    this truly IS CG!..actually I think its a tie between matt bomer and ian somerhalder..they are BOTH ridiculously GORGEOUS!!..

  25. Hastobematt September 7, 2012 / 11:01 PM

    It can only be Matt Bomer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. Punzhun September 14, 2012 / 4:35 PM

    Munro Chambers. End of story. ;D

  27. aastha September 18, 2012 / 1:31 AM

    perfect is d word….

  28. FiftyShadesLurvr September 30, 2012 / 8:39 AM

    I don’t think this guy can play Grey. I think Ian Somerhalder of Vampire Diaries fits the role perfectly. I think he should get it.

  29. Greyslover!! September 30, 2012 / 10:38 AM

    Matt Bomer can not be Christian Grey.Grey is much more better than him.

  30. Monique October 7, 2012 / 6:42 AM

    Matt Bomer, of course.

  31. Dayse October 8, 2012 / 2:31 PM

    I completely agree. Matt is perfect to play the role. I love Ian, but i prefer Matt.

  32. Tashlyn Leis October 9, 2012 / 8:27 AM

    Physically he’s right on but that Ian somerhalder guy looks more sinister to play the Grey role. I like the chiseled features they both have. I would love to be surprised

  33. Monica Suyo October 9, 2012 / 3:23 PM

    Dean Geyer as Christian Grey, Alexa Davalos as Ana Steele, Katie Cassidy as Kate, Armie Hammer as Elliot – Just thoughts…..

  34. Dawn Probert October 11, 2012 / 1:39 PM

    Matt bomer would be perfect as Christian grey that’s how I pictured him :-)

  35. ianFTW October 11, 2012 / 11:34 PM

    Ian somerhalder looks hotter that matt bomer. The book described christian grey the same as Ian Somerhalder. Most of the people who are reading the book want Ian to play the role! :D

  36. Rosa October 12, 2012 / 2:07 AM

    I believe Matt Boomer is the perfect fit for Christian Grey. He sexual preferences shouldn’t matter. He’s an actor isn’t he. I mean look at him, hes the epitome of male beauty, “a greek god” as is described in the book, gay or not!

  37. Jamie October 12, 2012 / 5:32 PM

    I get all kinds of giddy when I think of him as Christian Grey….what I wouldn’t give…my god!!!

  38. Jamie October 12, 2012 / 5:38 PM

    Now that I think of it, I don’t like Ian Somerhalder simply because he has smiling’s a lovely feature, but I think the wider jaw line and serious relaxed face that Matt Bomer has does something far more when trying to channel the Christian Grey we all now know…just my 10 cents
