Alexander Skarsgard in '50 Shades of Grey' -- Please God, Please!

by Jacqueline Burt on May 2, 2012 at 1:41 PM

alexander skarsgard coachellaI'm dying. Seriously. I'm so totally dying. Alexander Skarsgard in Fifty Shades of Grey?!?!?!

DYING!

Of course I would watch ASkars play absolutely any role -- plumber, bank teller, stuttering monk with a patch over one eye, ANY ROLE -- but bad boy with a taste for bondage Christian Grey?!

Skarsgard is so perfect for the part I can't even stand it. Even HE knows it! That's why his adorable ears perked up when he heard about the as-yet-uncast lead:

"He's got a sex chamber? My character has that on True Blood. He's got his little dungeon ... I was born to the play that part."

YES. YES YOU WERE, ASKARS!!

Ian Somerhalder? Puh-leeze. Chris Pine? Not even. Ryan Gosling? I'm not mad atchu, baby ... but nope.

Skarsgard. For. The. Win.

More from The Stir: '50 Shades of Grey' Actor Buzz Heats Up: Gosling, Pattinson, Efron ... Oh My!

Of course the obvious next question would be: Which actress is worthy of playing opposite ASkars as Christian's object of lust, Anastasia?

The answer? NO actress is worthy of such an honor. Hmph. But since the movie probably won't get made without a lead actress, I guess I'd have to suggest ... ummm ... yeah, sorry, can't think of anyone. And don't say Kristen Stewart -- she already has a vampire! No fair!

Do you think Alexander Skarsgard would be perfect in Fifty Shades of Grey?

    Yes I think he would be fabulous! Anyone OTHER than RPatz. That guy is NOT suited for a clean, OCD, billionaire, smoldering sex god.ONly thing is, I think Alex may be deemed to old for the part :(

    I think he would be awesome!  I also think maybe too old though.  I've wondered in my private fantasies whether Chase Crawford could pull it off becuase he's....nice looking.  HA!  I would have to watch this movie alone I think.  As for the Ana role, It HAS to be an unknown young actress, dontcha think?

    MICHAEL FASSBENDER. Seriously ladies. Google him! He's the PERFECT Christian. Though I do have to say that ASkars would make GREAT Chrisitan, I do agree that he's a smidge too old. But then what the heck, graphics make Brad Pitt an old little man and a young hot guy again (in Benjamin Button) ... So why not.
    And for Ana... Please to the Gods of the movies, NOT Kristin Stewart, she's an insipid nothin of a wanna be actress. Please anyone but her!

    It's funny to see how people really do have different opinions on who is hot.  I think Ian Somerhalder is the best looking man I have ever seen with my eyes.  To me, there is no competition between Ian and Alexander, Ian wins every time hands down.  Of course, I know others probably think that about Alexander.  So, I'd love to see Ian in the role (even though I've never read the books).

     Ian has the looks but I don't think he has the acting chops. Maybe if he'd act differently than "Damon".  I'm a Vampire Diaries fan but Ian is sometimes TOO Damon.... he overdoes the eyebrow thing.  Seriously it's sexy once in awhile, not constantly!

    I could see Alex very easily in this role... Alex is sex on a stick!!  He can play the bad boy, dominant, control freak and the loving caring Christian too.

    I just bought this book yesterday, and to me it seems like maybe a slight rip-off of "Secretary"...anywho...

    Michael Fassbender is brilliant and would be brilliant in this role, but I don't know if I can see him accepting it.

    Anyone but Kristen Stewart...she has already screwed up a few decades of trying to get "On the Road" on the big screen.
