Ian Somerhalder Favored by E.L. James for Christian Role?
The 50 Shades of Grey movie buzz marches on, and this time, the chatter is back in Ian Somerhalder's court. As the star of the hit television series, The Vampire Diaries, this hot actor seems to be a steamy no-brainer for the role of Christian Grey. Not that he doesn't have plenty of other hunky competition for the provocative part in other talked about actors the likes of Ryan Gosling, Henry Cavill, Alexander Skarsgard and Matt Bomer, among others. But Somerhalder may have received a little bonus plug from the book's author, E.L. James.
"I'm a big Vampire Diaries fan," she admitted recently on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, as WetPaint reports. James obviously has a thing for vampires; 50 Shades even had its origins in a fan fiction she wrote based on the characters in The Twilight Saga. So will her vampy love swing the pendulum in Somerhalder's favor? It also potentially puts True Blood's Skarsgard in good standing--plus, he has that Calvin Klein Encounter short film to bolster his chances. It's a shadowy, sexy piece that totally channels a Grey vibe.
