Justin Bieber Offered '50 Shades of Grey' Movie Role? He's GOT to Be Kidding! (VIDEO)

Say What!? 25

justin bieberThere have been plenty of crazy rumors about who could be cast as in the forthcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie -- cough porn star James Deen?! -- but none more totally out-of-touch and wackadoo as the latest ... Did someone say JUSTIN BIEBER as Christian Grey? Whaaaat?!

Apparently, the Biebs went on the U.K.'s Jonathan Ross show and said that he had been approached about having a role in the film. Although all he said was "They actually want me to be in the movie!" in a jokey way, the UK's Daily Star reports Bieber really meant he's being considered to play Christian. Oh, please NO.

The only way I could see this being even the slightest hue of true is if he had been approached to play a younger Christian -- like in a flashback scene to when he was a teenager first being introduced to BDSM by Elena. Still, that seems like a major stretch ...

Sure, Biebs has the star appeal, but he has yet to prove himself as an actor. I feel like even in a bit part like "Flashback Teenage Christian," it would be too much of a risk to take to cast him. Another issue: As badly as he wants to be a grown-up celeb, his target audience is still very much little girls. I'm sure there will be parents out there who are none too pleased about their 8-year-old asking to go see Fifty Shades of Grey in theaters, because Bieber makes a guest appearance.

All in all, seems to me that letting Bieber anywhere near this film would be bad, bad news. Fingers crossed my instincts are right that the kid was just brushing up on his jokester shtick ... Otherwise, our hopes for what Fifty Shades flicks could ultimately be may be well on their way to being seriously dashed!

You can check out the full interview here. He addresses Fifty Shades at around 6:50 ...

Do you agree Bieber must've been kidding? Could you see him getting cast in Fifty Shades?

*vomit* No way, that wouldn't work. Considering he mainly appeals to pre-teen girls, I don't think his manager would allow him to star in a VERY mature movie. Plus, who the hell wants to see Justin as Christian? The casting agents know that'd make the movie into a big joke. Christian is supposed to look in his mid/late twenties. Justin looks like he's 15. The people making the movie know women want someone sexy as Christian. They wouldn't dare make such a big casting mistake..

Maybe in a flashback when they're explaining how he first met Elena "Mrs. Robinson" Lincoln. I could honestly see that working.

You have got to be kidding. My granddaughters, 6 and 7 idolize this kid. There is no way this kid; and I stress KID can play this role of Christian. What a bad taste in our mouths as mothers and well as teenage idols. You need someone like 007 McGregor, Robert Pattison or Taylor Lautner. PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEE not Justin.

This has got be a joke. Do you know how many 8-14 year old girls are going to want to see this movie if Justin Bieber is cast?

This is an adult book and we need a strong man with a take charge attitude. Bieber the bobble head is a wimpy little boy, with a little girls voice who probably still wears underoos! Good God , I will be so disappointed!

He was obviously joking (going along with the fun vibe of the interview)!
