'50 Shades of Grey' Author May Want Vampires to Play Christian & Ana After All (LISTEN)

Flicks 28

E L JamesShe's tried her best to play things pretty coy thus far, but Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James is beginning to have a hard time keeping her mouth shut when it comes to who should play her beloved characters, Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, in the movie version of the book.

And while her husband went and got our hopes up when he mumbled something about Ryan Gosling being cast, E.L. has gone out of her way to make it known that the rumors surrounding Ryan are nothing but rumors -- which seems like a pretty good indicator that he won't be a part of the film. (Boo!)

But if a recent slip of the tongue she made is any indication of who is on her list of favorites to land the roles, then it sounds like were in for an eye-candy filled treat when the Fifty Shades of Grey movie finally hits theaters. (And there may be vampires involved too.)

E.L. James talked to Ryan Seacrest and said that casting the film is the studio's decision and that they "aren't too far along" in the process -- but she did throw in a little tidbit about being a huge fan of Vampire Diaries. And that can only mean one thing, right?

Yes, I'm talking about her LOVING the idea of Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev filling the roles of Christian and Ana and making all of our hot and steamy Fifty Shades of Grey fantasies come true as we sit and squirm in our sets and try not to breathe too loudly sit motionless in our seats glued to the screen eating our popcorn in the theater.

Let's start with Ian Somerhalder and why he should play Christian Grey. I think one of my friends from college said it best, "He's so hot it's criminal." The end.

And Nina Dobrev definitely fits the part of Anastasia, and couple her gorgeous looks with the fact that she and Ian are doing the dirty in real life and you've got yourself an on-screen chemistry combination that has the possibility to spontaneously combust at any second.

I highly doubt anyone will complain with Ian and Nina as part of the cast, and if they do, well -- at the least the majority of fans will be extremely satisfied.

You can listen to more of E.L. James'  interview with Ryan Seacrest in this clip.

Do you think she gave away key details about the cast?

ian somerhalder for christian he be perfect choice as for ana not fussed who plays her so long as k stewart doesnt play her and r pattison doesnt get to play christian

Knife Knife

Ian Somerhalder would be a decent Christian, but I don't think having him and Nina Dobrev in the film together will work well. People who are fans of the Vampire Diaries' won't see them as Christian and Ana, they'll see them as Elena and Damon (like with the idea of Robert P. and Kristen S. playing Christian and Ana.. they're Edward and Bella, not Christian and Ana). It's not going to feel like a separate, unrelated movie, it's going to feel like a continuation of the show they're on. :/

Agreed. Ian would be amazing!! but I think he would need someone other than Nina so it doesn't remind everyone of vampire diaries continuing. hmmmm interesting. I caught onto that when I first heard her comment.

It would be terrible casting.

He much too delicate and feminine looking for the part besides the being much too short for the role. Part is needing someone who looks like a man.

ian and nina would be perfect !!! the camera really captures something dangerous in Ian and he can play any role he is called to play .

nonmember avatar mountain

He would bring the character to life. Cast an unknown for Ana or someone like Emilia Clark. NOT bledel.

Paola Giordano

Ian would be perfect for Christian Grey he could be thoughtful sweet but also mysterious intriguing perverse bully...Ian and Nina together would be the best!!! but it's also my LOVER idea, a dream for me and I think for the most of DELENA fans!!!!

I love how all you Ian fans really like to reach with quotes from E.L. James. She never once said Ryan Gosling wasn't a front runner. All she said was the story about her husband letting it slip was a rumor. And seriously, she goes and says that she is a fan of Vampire Diaries and that means she wants Ian cast? Lets not forget how huge a fan of Twilight she is. Hmmm, could that mean she wants Rob and Kristen to play? We can all campaign as much as we want for our favorite man to play him. But in the end, all that matters to the "studios" is who can act and draw in the crowds. E.L. does have input, but the studios have final say. Just a little something to remember.
