If casting the woman who will play Anastasia Steele in the movie version of the sexy bestselling Fifty Shades of Grey series is going to be tough, imagine what it will be like to cast the man himself. Women are talking like Christian Grey is their one and only fantasy. Put the wrong actor in his red room of pain, and the film itself could be painful to watch.
But if the part of the sexy billionaire with a naughty taste for bondage goes to any one of the actors whose names are swirling around Hollywood right now, the box office will be on fire. Ironic considering the number of ice cold vampires on the list!
Here are 6 actors whose names have been linked to the Christian Grey role so far.
Who do you think would make the best Christian Grey?

Taylor Kitsch hasn't had much success since Friday Night Lights went off the air, and John Carter was an absolute flop. All the more reason for him to throw on a pair of jeans and a certain tie and take over as head of the Grey holdings. Kitsch seems game: joking around with Access Hollywood's Billy Bush last month, the hard-bodied hottie said his Battleship co-star Brooklyn Decker was reading it, and he might as well throw his name in.
Sorry Christian Grey, but the Tim Riggins fantasies never die ... Texas forever y'all.
