Ian Somerhalder has been the rumored front-runner to star as Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of “Fifty Shades Of Grey” after speaking out about seeking the part of the S&M loving multi-millionaire. Now, he’s talking about the possibility of taking the role once again.
Earlier in the year, he spoke of the reports that he was taking the lead role in the movie, telling his numerous fans that he wasn’t “desperate” to take part in the movie. Despite that, on Saturday at the 2012 Environmental Media Awards, he says that he definitely understands the books’ appeal.
When speaking with “E!”, he said, “I think that’s going to be a very interesting story to tell. It seems like whoever plays that role, it will be very interesting rehearsal time…the audition process is gonna be interesting.”
When he was asked about who he would choose to be his co-star, Anastasia Steele, he said, “My Anastasia? I don’t know…there are too many to name.”
Do you think Ian would make a good Christian Grey?
