Ian Somerhalder 'Prepares' for Christian Grey Role by Building His Own Dungeon

Say What!? 97

Ian SomerhalderNow that the Fifty Shades of Grey movie has a screenwriter, we must be getting closer to an announcement as to who will be cast as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, right? And while there seem to be quite a few front runners for both parts at this point, one actor in particular seems fairly confident that he will be offered the chance to be Christian Grey.

Get excited ladies, because Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder is already preparing for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie -- and it sounds like he's already getting into character. While Ian admits that "nothing's official" and the casting rumors surrounding him are "just talk," he's taking steps to make sure his lifestyle mirrors Christian's love of all things erotic.

Get this one -- he's possibly building a dungeon in his house. Yep, a dungeon. His exact words were:

Yeah, there's a website you can go to where you can just outfit your basement as a dungeon. So, you know, I thought I'd get prepared, just in case.

OMG! As if we weren't already jealous enough of Nina Dobrev, now she may get to canoodle Christan Grey-style with Ian in his personal basement dungeon?!?

I mean, I guess there's always the chance that he was joking, but for the sake of all of us who are drooling over the thought of him as Christian -- let's hope he was being totally serious. (You have to admit, the dungeon thing is pretty hot.)

But whether or not he's going to actually put in a dungeon at his home, the whole "I thought I'd get prepared, just in case" comment must mean that he knows he's a major contender for the role -- and perhaps he even knows something we don't about who is going to be cast?

(Fingers crossed!)

Do you think Ian Somerhalder is a shoo-in for Christian Grey's role?
