It looks like the fans have selected their favorites – now it’s the studio and producers’ turn. Ever since the Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation was announced, there has been intense fan debate online over who should play the titular roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.
Some fans would like the parts to be played by the actors that inspired it, Twilight’s Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Others want well known actors cast in the movie, such as Matt Bomer, Christian Bale, Mila Kunis, and Alexis Bledel.
However, the most number of fans seem to support Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev for the lead roles, which would make it easier considering that the duo are both an on-screen couple [on the Vampire Diaries] as well as a real-life couple.
Somerhalder has spoken out about the role before and mentioned that he wouldn’t mind taking the role if the script was good. It’s likely that if Somerhalder signs on and the script is verified to be good, Dobrev could be next. The producers are considered one of the best producer pairings in town, and were the team behind the ‘Social Network’, so it’s clear that this movie is in good hands. The only question is whether they would agree with this fan casting or decide to go for someone more high-profile?
