Ryan Gosling Wanted For ’50 Shades Of Grey’ Movie Adaptation


Hottie Ryan Gosling has been tapped to star in the yet-to-be-made movie adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey. According to Digital Spy, novelist Bret Easton Ellis recently expressed serious interest in turning E.L. James’ bestselling erotic fiction into a film, and he has given his thoughts on who should appear in the movie. Ellis has been tweeting continuously as he approached the studio, and then began hypothesizing who would play the lead roles. So, we know he wants Ryan Gosling, but who else are they after? Who should be his Ana?

Bret Easton Ellis went to his official Twitter account to start the discussion about his plan for a film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey. The bestseller, part of a trilogy, is definitely one of the hottest books right now. If you haven’t read it, it is erotic, amusing, and deeply moving. I can almost guarantee that it will overtake you, like it did me.

What is it about? A young literature student, Anastasia Steele, goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, and she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. Despite his enigma, Ana realizes that she is compelled to him, and thus begins her desperate attempt to get close to him. A thrilling, erotic, daring and dark tale ensues. It is a great book, and I’m not surprised that a film adaptation is already in the works. Nothing has actually been confirmed yet about a movie, but Bret has started meeting with studio execs and is seemingly very serious about turning this novel into a film.

Ellis tweeted “Okay. Today the team has been briefed and we will be approaching the studio this week about BEE adapting Fifty Shades of Grey into a film…”Thanks to everyone supporting BEE adapting Fifty Shades of Grey: the response has been huge and amazing. Hope E.L. James feels the same way.

“The casting of Christian in Fifty Shades of Grey wouldn’t be up to me but I have certain actors in mind. And a particular actress for Ana.” He continued: “I think David Cronenberg is a great idea for directing Fifty Shades of Grey and we worked together on American Psycho in its initial phase. “Cronenberg and Alexander Skarsgård is a no-brainer. I’ve seen Alexander naked so many times at the gym that we both attend: perfect casting.

“For Fifty Shades of Grey: David Cronenberg, Alexander Skarsgård, Bret Easton Ellis and who as… Anastasia???
“I would love it if we lived in a world where Lena Dunham could be Ana in Fifty Shades of Grey but I don’t think we do. I think she’s hot.”

“Thinking more conventionally for Ana in Fifty Shades of Grey: Scarlett Johansson or Kristen Stewart. Alex Pettyfer as Christian: too young? “Aaron Johnson as Christian Grey? In a perfect world it would be Ryan Gosling as Christian Grey…”David Cronenberg directing. Bret Easton Ellis writing. Ryan Gosling acting. Fifty Shades of Grey team… Shades of Grey.”

Hmm….. I personally don’t want to see Scarlett Johansson as Ana. I think Kristen Stewart could do it, but she might not be soft or naive enough to play this role. I can actually see Ryan Gosling taking on the role of Christian Grey. He has the intrigue, sex appeal and enough darkness to get the balance right. I’m still not sure who would be a good Ana…

I am pretty excited about the prospects of this book being turned into a movie, but clearly the casting will make or break it, particularly as so many people have love the novel and already have a picture of Christian and Ana in their minds. What do you think of the casting for this movie? And, are you excited about a film adaptation of 50 Shades Of Grey?

  • nicole

    Scarlett cant be Ana. shes like the complete opposite of the girl. and i think Kristen is just toooo awkward for the role.

    i dont think im 100% convinced on Ryan. but i could see it working.

    • clare

      ian sommerholder should be christian grey, and def not kristen as ana, ew no

  • Shannon

    If Kristen stewart poorly acts all over 50 shades I’m gonna be so mad. Ryan gosling and Dakota fanning (if she’s over 18 I have no clue) Anastasia has to be really young and naive. Scarlett is a terrible choice IMO

    • the book is written terribly… terrible acting would only follow suit.

    • Alc

      I completely agree, I never thought about Dakota Fanning but yeah she would work as Ana

  • Anna

    No way on Scarlett Johansson. I have no idea why but I kept picturing Natalie Portman 10 years ago in this role. Someone with biteable lips :)

    And Ryan Gosling? Ummmm yea, he’ll do :) But I have no idea what this movie will be about without it being a full on porn!

  • LA Lola

    No.  No more Kristen Stewart in movies please. She’ll just stand there slack-jawed, dopey-eyed and awkward….like in EVERY movie she’s in. She obviously doesn’t want to be a famous actresss in every one of her interviews, and i wish to help her on that journey to obscurity. Sweet jeebus.

    • Susan

      My feelings exactly. I don’t get why the world is so enamored with her. Yuck.

  • Geana

    Me and my friends have discussed the casting of this movie to death and some of the guys for Christian we agree on but our top choice is Henry Cavil. For Ana which took forever to come up with an actress! Well we thought Allison Williams would be great! What do you think?

    • Kori

      I think Chase Crawford and Alexis Bledel for Christian and Ana. Allison Williams looks to old. Ana is only 21 and the book describers her eyes being to big for her face…which I think that Alexis fits the part with still being very pretty and naive looking.

    • JeniLee

      SO agree about Henry Cavill! He is PERFECT

      I love Gosling but not for this role. doesnt fit. Scarlet either

      Alexis Bledel would have been perfect like 10 years ago but looks to old now so I am STUMPED!

  • mymydou

    i think nina dobrev would be a great choice to play ana! …paired with ryan gosling..that would be haawwtt!

    • nicole

      oooh Nina never popped into my head. but she totally works!

    • AK

      I think Nina Dobrev would be a perfect Ana too.

  • Shannon

    When I see Nina I think of her in degrassi

  • Natalie

    Alexander Skarsgard as Christian, and I think Alexis Bledel should be Ana!! She fits the whole brown haired, eyes too big for the face description.

    • Mary


  • Shannon

    @Natalie. Yesssss!!! Alexis Bledel would be absolutely perfect! She has that clumsy cute awkward thing happening plus she’s gorgeous!! And has that baby face

    • Vicky

      Alexis in her Gilmore Girls days would have been perfect but she’s way too old now to play a 21 year old…

  • trish

    Purely from a looks perspective, I think Matt Bomer would be the perfect Mr. Grey- simply beautiful. I also like Henry Cavill.
    Kristen Stewart sure has awkward covered, but I don’t think she has enough depth as an actress to pull off the role- can’t picture her going up against Ms. Robinson successfully. I agree that Alexis Bledel would be a good Ana.
    Please please PLEASE no ANNE HATHAWAY! I heard she was in consideration for the role as well. Over it already!

  • Amanda

    50 Shades of Grey is a fan-fic of Twilight with the names changed. The author has been upfront about that from the beginning. There is no depth, no character development and since it’s really just porn there doesn’t need to be. That said, I can’t believe anyone would call this novel a “deeply moving…great book.” It’s fine for what it is, but please don’t try to make it something it’s not.

    • Z

      Well said, Amanda!!

    • Meg

      Amen! I can’t believe how many women out there like this book. Ugh. I enjoy reading erotic romances, but like Amanda says, this one had no depth or character development at all! So sick of all the hype over a shitty book.

    • Sara

      I agree!! I hate that it is taking erotic romance “mainstream” all of a sudden, as if there aren’t well written ones out there and all our fantasies must revolve around something related to Twilight. Gag me.

    • Dot

      Couldn’t agree more. I actually read this as a fan-fic and was surprised to find out the writer is older than 12 years of age. Then I was even more surprised to find out this ended up as a book which some people could describe as good. Now I’m finding out that they want Ryan to play the main character? I don’t know what to think of it…

    • Katie

      I totally agree. I tried to read it, total crap-fest. I can see how Twilight was her inspiration.

  • Vicky

    I think Ian Sommerhalder would be the perfect Christian!

  • Tiffani

    My first choice for Christian Grey is Ryan Gosling as well. Kristen Stewart is a one not actress no way can she play Anastasia. What about Emilia Clarke (Daenerys from Game of Thrones) she is beautiful and can act. Also someone I just thought recently was Anna Kendrick.

  • Christy

    My picks are Chris Hemsworth & Mila Kunis (spelling?) they are both so attractive!!!! It would be amazing!!!

  • Alejandra

    I’m going for Alexis Bledel as Ana, because it doesn’t matter if she is older than 21, she still looks too young, and Ian Somerhalder for Christian!!!

  • shoesofpink

    I just finished this book last week. My gawd, it was poorly written and monotonous. Anyhow, I think Ryan could do a fine job as Grey, but I do not like Scarlett or Kristen for Anastasia. Ana needs to be someone young and vulnerable, and honestly, I think Stewart needs a break from fan fiction movies, and Scarlett is too old and overtly sexy. In my opinion Shailene Woodley or Alexis Bledel would be amazing for the role of Anastasia. Shailene is very young and innocent looking, (but not too young), and Alexis is a bit older, but has a very naive look about her, and could play the role well.

    Overall though, I don’t know how they’re going to find enough of a story to fill two hours after they take out most of the sex in the book, to give the movie even an NC-17 rating.

  • Missy

    For all the people saying there’s no way Kristen could be Ana…you do know that Anastasia Steele started off as Bella Swan, right? That being said, this is a shit book that shouldn’t be made into a movie.

  • BradywantsMoore

    Um… David Boreanaz and Miley Cyrus… That’s my favorite match!!

  • Maggie

    @Tiffani – Anna Kendrick would be a good choice!

  • Ara

    I agree with some of the posters this book is twilight fan-fic basically inspired by Twilight and I wanted to throw the book a couple of times but couldn’t since it was an ebook lol. Honestly I read all three just to see if the story would improve and was disappointed. I didn’t hate the stories but they weren’t that good. I read it a while back before the craze hit since I am an avid bookworm have to read daily. To me 50 Shades of Grey is like fast food, its okay it fills you up and sometimes you want a greasy burger and fries. But there is filet mignon and lobster out there in romance books, erotic stories too.

    • nicole

      totally agree. its nowhere near the greatest series out there – but a quick read, that little cheesy, these books work.

  • Tammi

    I like Matt Bomer for Christian Grey ……Ana is a tough one

    • Molly

      Dave Annable for Christian Grey. Unknown actor for Ana.

  • Just a Girl

    I’d love to see Armie Hammer as Christian Grey. Some say he’s too pretty, but he did a great job playing a darker sort of character in Blackout, so I think he can pull it off.

  • Veronica

    Ryan Gosling is perfect!!! He is who I have been envisioning this whole time. I think that Shailene Woodley (The Descendants, Secret Life) would be perfect to play Ana. She is beautiful yet has the innocent look at the same time. Alexis Bledel would be great too!

    • M

      I would LOVE to see him in it too but I doubt he would do it. Whoever gets the role will stand a big chance of being typecast as Christian Grey forever so I doubt any real stars will want to do it. Will probably be someone new.

  • Geana

    Seriously look at a picture of Allison Williams! Totally Ana! She is in that HBO show Girls.

  • Christina

    Ian Somerhalder (Damen from Vampire Diaries) for Christian Grey and i like the idea of an unknown actress playing Ana.

    Pleeeeeeeese don’t let it be Scarlet or Kristen.

  • Eric26

    NO! No no no no! They’re making this horrible book in to a movie and they have the audacity to ask TALENTED actors to be in it?!

    • Nozi

      thank god someone on here is talking some sense, this is an awe-inspiringly tragic example of pathetic defeatist victim writing (much in the same sense as Twilight, but filling that no-sex gap to ensure to titillate unfulfilled housewives). I wish I could go back in time and tell myself NOT to waste precious reading time with this trivial garbage. Furthermore I find it hilarious that this is even being discussed seriously on here, the movie would be PORN you idiots!!!

      AS IF any respectable actor would think twice about lowering themselves to this level of god-awful depravity. I’m no prude, but it sickens me to think that young women out there would be influenced by this writers attempts at shocking an audience, it made me unfathomably angry. I am so very embarrassed by the women who enjoyed this writing, the incredibly sad story of another woman being beaten into thinking this behaviour should be tolerated by a man astounds me. As someone who has actually experienced emotional abuse that the rest of you cannot acknowledge or recognise, I guess this is the indicative sad example of gullible women trying martyrise themselves into ‘changing’ and ‘saving’ the completely narcissist, abusive losers out there that will now be perpetuated thanks to this book.

  • nicole

    Mr. Grey should be Gabriel Macht from the TV show Suits.

    • JeniLee

      Isnt Gabriel Macht like 40? Christian is supposed to be 27/28. Def wouldnt work

  • Lauren C

    For Christian Grey I think Colin Egglesfield he has that good dark but handsome look and for Anastasia, Alexandra Daddario she has those super big blue eyes and brown hair that describe Ana perfectly.

  • azuresque

    Armie Hammer or Gabriel Macht for Christian!

  • gpgirl

    alexanders skarsgard or ryan gosling for the lead actor!

  • jennie

    Ian Somerhalder came to mind when I read the books. I think he’s a good choice, he even expressed that he wants to play the part. Ryan Gosling would be great for the role too. Please NOT Kristen Stewart! She has only one facial expression. Alexis Bledel would be the wiser choice.

  • I think they need to pull newbies for these roles — this has the potential to be career suicide for established actors.

    That being said, I vote Olivia Palermo’s boyfriend. He’s a model — perfect for a character with no depth/personality. But DAMN, he is hot.



    • M

      Totally agree with you. Every time someone suggests a known actor (ie Ryan Gosling) I know they wouldn’t go near the part. Whoever gets it will be typecast a Christian Grey forever.

  • nicole

    im pretty sure someone has already said Allison Williams. and whoever did..i completely agree with this choice. i dont know how i didnt notice before, but shes a perfect fit

  • taylor

    chase crawford and ana kendrick should be the main characters :) look them up

  • Kelly

    I put off reading the book for a very long time, thought I would hate it… Surprised to find how much I am rooting for these two!!!! I love the series, super fun and cute! I would love to see Mila or Alexis as Ana… Chris L or Ryan G would do! I just hope they actually do a good job with GOOD actors! Hmmm wonder who will play Mrs Robinson??? ;)

  • Sarah

    I think Lucy Hale (Pretty little liars) would be a great Ana.

  • Jade

    I would like to see Ryan Gosling in the role of Christian. I think he has the emotional acting depth that this character demands. The person playing the character needs to be convincing enough and be able to switch through many different emotions at the drop of a hat.

    Good luck Ryan :)

  • banana

    holy shit all you guys stop arguing now!

    Ryan Gosling shall play Christian. I shall play Ana. HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHA

  • A big NO from me for Ryan Gosling for Christian… My pick is Chris Hemsworth ALL THE WAY.. NO to Scarlett and Kirsten for Ana..

  • Stace

    This might just be the first time a movie has been better than the book it was based on!!

    Read all 3 books and they were pretty terrible! I’d still watch the movie though. Henry Cavill and Alexis Bledel(?) for Christian and Ana!

  • Cathy

    Ian Somerhalder or Alexander Skarsgård for Christian please.

  • rebecca

    no way. he is too old to play christian and it should be played by unknowns as hes too well known.

    • allie


  • Amy

    Ryan Gosling is not Christian! He’s good looking but not head turning gorgeous. Alexander Skarsgård is too old!

    Scarlett Johansson is certainly beautful but she is just not Anna. Nor is Kristen Stewart.

    I see Matt Bomer, Armie Hammer or William Levy as Christian.

    For Anna…Felicity Jones?

  • angie

    I would love natalie portman as ana.

  • Tina

    Love Ryan as Mr. Grey & I think Anne Hathaway should play Anna

  • Carol

    Have just finished the first book and just started the second. In my opinion the leads need to go to Ian Somerhalder and Felicity Jones. Let’s keep it with fresh talent guys.

  • Carol

    Have just finished the first book and just started the second. In my opinion the leads need to go to Ian Somerhalder and Felicity Jones. Let’s keep it with fresh talent guys.

  • cjohnson

    Definately Ian Somerhalder as Christian. Not sure about Ana. She needs to be an unknown, I think.

  • Wendy

    Alexander Skarsgard as Christian… omg he would be so perfect and Amanda Seyfried with hair dyed as Anna… Not ScarJo nooooooooo that would ruin it

  • Veronica

    Ian Somerhalder or Ryan Gosling as Christian Grey…. and Leighton Meester as Ana.

  • meg

    Alexander Skarsgard would be great !! I can see Ryan Gosling as well or Chris Hemsworth . NOT Ian Somerhalder . He would ruin it !! Ana is a tough one , I like Emmy Rossum

  • bababa

    69 comments for this post so far? ;)

    I think Michael Fassbender would be a perfect choice for Christian Grey! I can’t believe no one thought of him! He’s older, yeah, but there’s just something absolutely badass about him doncha think?!

    Ana is a hard one! I thougut Natalie Portman would be awesome! But somehow Nat and Michael seems to be a weird combination….

  • Vickii

    I would love to see Chris Hemsworth play the part of Christian Grey! what a perfect specimem.

    • Donna

      I agree!! Chris Helmsworth is what I see when I’m reading :) Ryan Gosling is a good choice too. Channing Tatum is hot but not a good enough actor for the part IMHO. I think Ana should be an unknown also.

  • Kathleen

    I defintely think Matt Bomer as Christian Grey.. or Channing Tatum. He definitely needs to be young and look young since it is so emphazied in the book.

    As for Ana I see either Alexis Bledel, Chyler Leigh, or Emilia Clarke…

    Please keep the Twilight out of the cast… we need a fresh look on a cast and re-using characters puts a bias on it.

  • kiss

    I was thinking the same thing!!!!!!!! Ryan Gosling would be great for the part of Christian Grey he has a soft side plus the rough manly side. And u thiyvhr if him before seeing this posting. Do it!!!!cast Ryan please!!!!

  • Tracey

    I like Chris Hemsworth or Ian Somerhalder for Christian. Maybe Shelley Hennig for Ana.

  • Jen

    Ryan Gossling as Grey and Emma Stone as Ana.

  • kirsty

    Jude laww and Emma Watson

  • len

    Ian Somerhalder for christian and kristen stewart for anastasia steele

  • Karen

    I think Shane West will be perfect for Christian grey. Check him out in Nikita.

  • Heidi

    I hope it’s Alexander Skarsgård aka Eric Northman from True Blood (YUM) and either Emily Browning from the movie Sucker Punch, Emma Watson from Harry Potter or Lucy Hale from Pretty little liars. Ana needs to be a natural beauty. I think she needs to be cute but not too overpowering in sexiness according to her character in the book. Maybe Michelle Pfeiffer or Sharon Stone as Elena and Julianne Hough or Blake Lively as Kate? Definitely NOT Scarlett Johansson, Kristen Stewart, Amanda Seyfried, or Emma Stone -(she’s too goofy) for Ana. Not so sure about Ryan Goseling either, he’s good looking but not drop dead gorgeous like what Christian Grey is perceived to be and Goseling may be tall but he seems little in body size and Christian should be a tall, dark and handsome type of guy of a bigger stature, but obviously fit. Ian Somerhalder wouldn’t be a bad choice or Matthew Bomer either.

  • vintage

    Alexis Bledel as Ana and Ian Somerhalder as Christian!! Ryan Gosling would work too but I think Ian looks “bad-der”. haha

  • Lily

    For Mr. Grey Henry Cavil or Collins Egglesfield DEF. a NO to Ryan not a part for him. For Ana Nina!!!!

  • Ilana

    i think that either ryan gosling or ian somerholder would be a great christian grey. i also pictured alexis bledel as ana throughout the book. she is innocent and sweet enough but could also be sexy

    • dante

      Somerhalder fits perfectly

  • mimi

    havent read the books only an excerpt but matt bomer is the spitting image of the main dude in my head.

    for the main (annoying) girl i actually imagine someone really homely, not overly attractive. all the actresses mentioned are gorgeous and too put together to even picture someone in the role. maybe anna kendrick, not because i think she’s unattractive but she’s a decent actress and age appropriate.

    apparently ashley benson has expressed interest in the role.

  • mer

    I swear if they cast Kristen Stewart as Ana I will refuse to watch the movie!!! I’m a huge fan of twiligt but Kristen is a terrible acctress. Awkward, dull and expressionless. I would love to see Rachel McAdams as Ana and Lliam Hemsworth as Christian. Totally hot couple!!!

  • Kate lewis

    No offence cant be ryan gosling guys he just doesnt do it!!! James marsden, rupert penry jones!!! Ooooof!!


  • mary

    def no to ryan…he isn’t sexy enough….I think if the casting people look on pinterest..they will see who the fans want…names thrown out as perfect Henry Cavill, Bradley Cooper, Ian Somerholder as Christian…Felicity Jones as Ana and some others. The fans DO NOT want a repeat of the twilight characters. A young fresh innocent as Ana is definitely NOT Scarlett Johansson. Please research what the fans want.. or it will be a BOMB…

  • Edna

    Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey and Liv Tyler as Ana. Please Please not Kristen Stewart!!!!!!!

  • michelle

    i think Bradley Cooper would be the best to play this part. Ryan Gosling is good but Bradley is better.

  • Ian Somerhalder is thr right choice for Christian Grey

  • Leanne

    I’ve only read a little bit of the book and bradley cooper is perfect just what i pictured in my head. Ryan Gosling isnt dark and big hes tall but not big built enough.

    And not sure about ana.. Maybe Mila Kunis from Friends with benefits.

  • Wish

    Alexander Skarsgard for Christian!!! Blake Lively with brown hair for Ana! Or Ashley Greene. Samantha from sex and the city would be a good Elena (mrs. Robinson). Just as long as Kristen Stewart does NOT star in the movie, it will probably be good.

  • loserville

    you have lost your minda…RYAN GOSLING is the embodiment of sexy, confident, muiti-billionarie debonaire look with hint of mystery that will suggest sadism and need for the part. please stop picking out women who are too old for the part it clearly states that ana ia a virgin innocent young adult woman. DEF NO KRISTEN STEWART!!!!

  • Jessica

    Ryan Gosling I think would play a great Christian and for Ana I think Emma Stone.

  • Nicole

    I would be happy to see Henry Cavill, Alexander Skarsgard, and Ryan Gosling. They would all be good choices. Ian Sommerholder isn’t tall enough for the role………

    For Ana, I think Emilia Clark, as she is the appropriate age and is a natural beauty…..to pull it off.

    Sharon Stone for Mrs Robinson !!

    I can’t wait to see what they come up with!! I hope I like the final outcome…….I would hate to be disappointed.

  • Angela


  • Loretta

    Collins Egglesfield is a perfect choice for Christian! Rachel McAdams would suit…but not sure if shes young enough for the part…but someone along those lines. PLEASE NO TWILIGHT ACTORS!

  • Where can I read the raw sample to the book?

  • Esmine Crosby

    I think either Ryan gosling Alexander skarsgard, Ian somerhalder or Alex pettyer should play Christian and either Anne Hathaway, Keira knightly or even though I think she plays a horrible actress Kristen Stewart and that’s only because she portrays that inoccent obsessed girl in all the movies she’s played in.

  • Kristen

    I personally would love to see either Ryan Gossling or Bradley Cooper be Christian Grey. Not sure I would go see the movie if either Scarlett or Kristen were Ana… Scarlett’s too voluptuous and Kristen is too hard and “weird,” not sure she would be believable. Perhaps a new actress would be fitting for the role, someone we aren’t very familiar with.

    • rachel

      Jonathan Rhyes Myers should be Christian, I think he fits that part very nicley!!

  • pink182

    I think Matt Bomer would be an Excellent Christian Grey, He is Beautiful and I think Nina Dobrev would make a great Anastasia with the help of contacts or Amanda Seyfried with the help of coloring her hair. I can’t see Ryan Gosling in this role, although he is very hansome He just dosen’t fit and No on Kristen Stewart and Scarlett Johansson either.

  • dolly

    Ryan Gosling would be perfect!! How about Emma Stone as Ana?

  • Kirsty

    I am in the middle of reading the books and personally feel that MICHAEL FASSBENDER is the one and only Grey he had the cooper hair the boyish grin and unbelievable hot. And very big on the scene right now and for Ana Emma Stone she has innocence around her aswell as a cheeky side and is beautiful. Who agrees??

  • rachel

    robert pattinson should play christian. he has the piercing eyes that are mentioned through the book

  • lilly

    i think emma stone would ne great to play ana

  • msanchez

    I would love to c Ryan Gosling as Christian he was great in the notebook as the in love and obsessive guy and sexy and demanding in crazy, stupid, love also the way his pants hang in that way Ana loves to c him in..as for Ana maybe Jessica lowndes or mila kunis

  • msanchez

    Mrs Robinson Catherine heigil..chalize therion..Jennifer aniston

  • Nicole

    Christian HAS to be played by Ian Somerhalder! He is the only one with the piercing eyes of all mentioned. He IS Christian!

  • Ashley G

    I want Ian Solmerhaulder as my christian

  • Kat

    I agree to Ian Somerhalder at Christian or Henry Cavill (Tudors) – Ryan Gosling not sexy or hot enough! Also – maybe Shailene Woodley as Ana. She very young and beautiful. I have seen some suggestions to Angelina Jolie -she is too old to play that part – sick of her anyway!

  • Alice Costa

    Christian Grey should be James Mcavoy

  • Mel

    I agree that Ryan Gosling should be Christian. Amanda Seyfried would make a great Ana! Yes, she is a couple of years older than the character, but she has a young face. She can definitely pull off the innocent/sexy mix.

  • bethan

    ian somerholder or matt bomer all the way as Christian and alexis bledel as anna.

  • Kira

    I think you are all forgetting Christian is supposed to be YOUNG himself. 28 I believe. As much as I love some of the choices mentioned, I think the movie shuld keep thatinto consideration! A 30something Christian would NOT work! I personally LOVE Alex Pettyfer! Can’t wait to see him in Magic Mike.I thik he could pull of Christian wonderfully!

  • kayla

    Ian Somerhalder- Christian
    Amanda Seyfried – Ana

  • Tiffani

    Kira I totally agree. A lot of choices above are way to old. Also can we consider actresses who can actually act. Amanda Seyfreid is one note just Kristen Dunst.

  • Susan

    I agree that Ryan Gosling would be awesome as Christian Grey. What about Rachel McAdams as Ana. The duo was great in The Notebook.

    • LisaLove

      I TOTALLY AGREE RACHEL MCADAMS WOULD BE THE PERFECT ANA. THEY ALREADY HAVE ONSCREEN CHEMISTRY FROM THE NOTEBOOK!!!! No one else would be as good. plus she has the natural beauty look that ana had. I would be disappointed if it was emma stone or anyone else would not work out. it needs to be someone who has a passion for love stories and is a good actress!!

  • Jamgap

    I cannot wait for this movie!!! And would LOVE to see Minka Kelly as Ana!

  • debbie

    I feel Simon Grey who plays the Mentalist would be a great Christian Grey. I enjoyed all 3 books

    • Erika Larrasquitu

      My top choices are Ryan Gosling….and Krsten Stewart….Second choice for Ana Steele is Emma Stone!!!!!

    • sam

      Aaron Johnson as Christian; Emily Browning as Ana

    • Lindsay

      Kristen stuart would ruin the movie…All she knows how to do is breath and act dead.

    • Essa

      Ryan is good looking… But I think that Channing Tatum would make a much better Christian!!

  • denise

    Shailene Woodley as Ana. Ryan is perfect.

  • katie

    Seriously..if you didn’t like the book or don’t like the idea of it becoming a movie..shut up..you don’t have to read it or see the film.. so get off this website. You don’t have to be a buzz kill for those who want to see it and loved the books. Dang people are idiots.
    Lucy hale for ana and Matt bommer or Chris hemsworth for Christian!!!! Sexyyy!

    If kristin Stewart gets casted I wont go see it just because shes a terrible actress and ugly.

  • Danielle Jones

    I think Jensen Ackles would be PERFECT for the role of Christian. He has the right look and is an amazing actor. I kept picturing him while reading the book… his work as ‘Alec’ in Dark Angel is a perfect example of the mercurial Christian Grey.

  • Danielle Jones

    Alexis Bledel would be a great choice for Ana! She looks young and naive yet beautiful in a natural way.

  • Kate

    Matt Bomer or Chris Pine as Christian! Shailene Woodley or Ashley Greene as Ana. Please don’t cast Kristen Stewart as Ana. Although I like her, a fresh face is needed for this movie! People won’t be able to disconnect her from Twilight.

  • carmen

    Alex Pettyfer as Christian and Ashley Greene as Ana

  • Ian Somerhalder is the perfect Christian. Smoking hot with killer gray eyes. Real bad boy appearance.
    Ana will be difficult. Will Kristen Stewart show skin?
    This story drips sex and is a must have to make this movie go well.

  • Valerie

    Ian Somerhalder all the way!!!

  • I could not put the books down – finished all three within a
    week. Kristen Stewart is truly Anastasia and Rob Pattinson
    with his long fingers playing the piano and his cold looks
    in New Moon, yet his passion to Bella and their chemistry,
    how could any other couple play these characters. Besides,
    their chemistry and passion is so natural, they do not have
    to act. If you want 50 Shades to make box office revenues
    over the top, the have Kristen and Rob portray Anastasia and
    Christian. Loved the books and cannot wait to see the movie

    Ryan Goslin. NOOOOOOOO, Kristen Stewart,NOOOOOOOOO, they need someone who is built bigger for Christian; like Channing Tatum or Ian Sodermayer(spelling) and Ana, I think should be Lucy Hale…she’s perfect. If they don’t pick the right two people for the lead actors, the whole concept of the book will go down the drain….Ryan’s face is too thin, and Kristen is not naive enough to play Ana and certainly not as pretty as she is portrayed in the book. If they don’t get the right actors to play the lead parts, the whole movie will actually suck out loud!!!!

  • Angela

    Has anyone seen ‘True Blood’? Alexander Skarsgard is a perfect Christan. He is really great with his facial expressions. You really feel like you can see his pain, joy , desire ect. When he was so sweet with Sookie last season it was like with Ana.

    • sarah

      i believe this man is great to play this role. He is mysterious and plays this christian grey dark role well already

  • B

    Michael Fassbender!!!!!

  • nelle

    I want to see Channing Tatum and Ashley Greene playing as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele…

  • Kate

    I had a nightmare last night that they cast Ashton Kutcher as Christian Grey. What a nightmare this will be for so many women if they cast this improperly. Christian is tall and mercurial and brooding. Ryan Gosling is too short and not attractive enough. He’s gorgeous in a different way but not the way Christian Grey is – all women blooming around him, fawning over him. Ian S. or Matt B. – either would be an A1 choice. Kristen Stewart for Ana is a huge mistake. This book has nothing to do with Twilight fans. This is a movie for adult women, not tweens and teens as Twilight is. Please do not cast this wrong. Lucy Hale is beautiful and would be a perfect version of the innocent Ana. Please make a good choice, folks. This movie will be a dream come true for so many people… please don’t spoil it for people by casting someone who will make the whole movie a big flop.

  • Ashley

    Ryan Gosling sounds GREAT!!!
    How bout Emma Stone for Ana – she’s cute and ackward…

    • Karen Joseph

      Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Anna? I could see Ryan Gosling as Christian… Love to see a young matthew mcconaughey!!!

  • Pennie

    I think Mark-Paul Gosselaar would make a perfect Christian!

    • JeniLee

      isnt MPG almost 40? Christian is like 27

  • Karen

    Anne Hathaway as Anastasia

  • D

    Ryan Gosling is a good choice and i agree with Alexis Bledel. NOT KRISTEN STEWART.

  • Kelly

    Ian Somerhalder for Christian, and Ashley Greene for Ana… perfect

    • DawnM

      I truly think Alex Pettyfer is the perfect fit for Christian Grey. No other near his age is smoldering enough while still classically beautiful to play this role, certainly not Ryan Gosling!

  • Mariah

    I think Chris Hemsworth and Alexis Bledel Both fit the movie. If not Chris then possibly Ryan Gosling but I for sure think Alexis has that innocent personality.

  • Terri

    I think that Ryan Gosling would be perfect for the part of Christian. And as for Ana I just saw a picture of katie holmes and she really looks good she may play a good role for ana.

  • Marie

    I think people should really take a good look at Aaron Johnson as Mr.Grey…he is completely overlooked…look him up!

  • areis258

    Ryan Gosling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  • Amanda

    Colin Egglesfield should play Christian

  • Patti

    How about Bradley Cooper for Christian? I actually think the emotional sweet side reminds me of Robert Pattinson and the dark side, but he would really have to buff up for it. For Ana I picture Amy Adams (but the Sex scenes might be stretch) or Mila Kunis, because she is spunky and I think she has the ba**s to pull off the hard stuff. Either way, if they have to cut too much of it out just to get an R rating, it’s really going to loose the jest of the movie.

    • JeniLee

      Bradley Cooper is by far too old. Christian is 27. Bradley is 37 Ditto for Amy Adams

    • Patti

      Ryan is close to 32 himself. I was thinking more their talent and their chemistry, not their their ages. Older actors often play characters much younger than them. As we know, alot of times the movies are quite different than the books, as far as age, hair color, even the story, unfortunately.

    • JeniLee

      I dont think Ryan fits either. I personally prefer Henry Cavill and Allison Williams

  • Amanda

    I cant really see Amy Adams or Allison Williams play Ana. Colin Egglesfield is my choice, but Henry Cavill I could see it.

  • Laura

    I thin Matt Bomer is THE perfect Chistian Gray. He has that mysteriously sexy and intoxication look to him while at the same time looking very distinguished haven’t decided yet who I like for Ana yet. That a tough one.

  • susan

    I think either Kristen or Ashely Green for Anna

  • Anonymous

    I want Nina Dobrev for Ana, if Kirsten Stewart or some other lady gets the part, I will never watch that movie. GO Nina

  • Jess

    Matt Bomer by far. That’s who I thought of the whole time reading this book.

  • jvb

    MATT BOMER – Google him….he IS Christian Grey – no doubt, 100%…Ryan Gosling will ALWAYS be Noah..and Noah sure as heck ain’t no Christian!!!!

  • Izzy

    I believe Ryan Gosling would make an awesome Christian Grey, and as Ana Steel, I would love to see Lucy Hale. I believe she would be awesome if given the role!!!

    • LMW

      I hadn’t been quite sure who I could picture as Christian, but my husband told me Ryan was being looked at and imediately I could envision him in Christian’s tattered “Red Room” jeans and KNEW he would fit the part, he is sexy enough to fit the description and has played enough “dark roles” that I think he could do this just as perfectly. I had never heard of Lucy Hale, but after seeing her picture I think she would be suiting for the part of Ana. I think the fact that people are suggesting Scarlett JoHannsen (who is not a “girl-next door type AT ALL) or Kristen Stewart for Ana just seems ludacris to me, Kristin would TOTALLY and COMPLETELY RUIN the movie if she was cast as Ana, there is no way she could give the emotion to the character that would be required.

  • Emma

    I know hes not an actor but a great singer adam levine from maroon 5 should be christian grey.

  • Annie

    I think Chris Pine and Katie Holmes would bring 50 Shades to life perfectly. Chris is exactly how I envision Christian…and Katie embraces the sweetness so necessary of Ana!

  • Virgo

    Ryan Gosling or Chris Pine as Christian. Definitely Nina Dobrev as Ana. :)

  • Virgo

    Oh, and Lindsay Lohan could play innocent, even if she’s not in real life.

  • Sasha

    Oh yes please Ryan Gossling ((: what aboutttt Mila Kunis for anna ?

  • Camilla

    I think Amanda Seyfried would be a good choice for Ana, but I’m not sure….

  • Lisa Mijatovic
  • Stella Smith

    I can’t wait for the movie. I loved the books. I should agree these are the best written books.
