Various media outlets are reporting that Ryan is the top choice for to play Christian Grey in “Fifty Shades of Grey“. I assume this is just a rumor, but I am going to post it here anyway.
Although actor Ian Somerhalder has been widely considered the most popular fan favorite to be cast as Christian Grey in the bestselling “Fifty Shades of Grey” film adaptation by E.L. James, it seems that Ryan Gosling is in the lead for the part as of now, according to recent studio sources.
In breaking “Fifty Shades” movie news, it was reported this Tuesday morning by “Entertainmentwise” that Ryan Gosling of “The Notebook” is now first in line for the role. The reports this week have gone so far as to say that the casting part is “his role to turn down,” which leaves the question as to whether the film set is closer to finding its Christian Grey.
According to a new release from “Entertainmentwise” this Tuesday, actor Ryan Gosling—who was voted last year in 2011 as the world’s sexiest man—has been tipped to possibly be cast as the handsome billionaire in the racy story of a dark but passionate relationship between college graduate Anastasia Steele and Christian himself.
“The Sun” recently quoted, “The role of the sadomasochistic [SM] billionaire looks to be the man-of-the-moment actor Ryan Gosling’s [casting role] to turn down. But the star from “Drive” may take some persuading for the part.”
Gosling, was critically acclaimed for his part in “Drive” (though not earning an Oscar nomination), and will begin a new movie project this year starring a cast that includes Cate Blanchett and Christian Bale after finishing the shooting of “Only God Forgives.”
Even with this supposed new support from Ryan Gosling in “Fifty Shades of Grey,” one would do well to not bet all their whips and chains away on Ian Somerhalder just yet. The star in the “Vampire Diaries” has expressed a real interest in playing the part of Christian Grey, and was still called a “likely candidate.”
