'50 Shades' Writer Teases Us About Who Will Play Christian Grey & Drives Us Insane

OMG 109

Ian SomerhalderSo, in case you hadn't heard, there's a little flick called the Fifty Shades of Grey movie in the works, and people are pretty psyched about it, to say the least.

And of course, we're all on the edge of our seats waiting to hear who gets cast in the leading roles -- because whoever winds up playing Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey will automatically become the hottest duo in Hollywood overnight.

The general consensus seems to be that Fifty Shades author E.L. James will probably have some say as to who nabs the parts. That's why a recent tweet she posted has fans wondering whether she has a favorite in mind to play Christian Grey.

Are you ready for this one? E.L. James may be pulling for Ian Somerhalder to take on Christian's role and bring our wildest erotic fantasies to the big screen.

(Please. God. Let. This. Be. True.)

Ok, so here's what led up to the speculation that she's giving Ian a nod for the part.

Twitter user @BookTemptations posted a photo of Ian accompanied by a quote from Fifty Shades of Darker. And then E.L. answered the tweet with nothing but a happy face with a big grin.

Wow. Way to be subtle, E.L.

Um, posting a grin in response to that tweet HAS to mean she's hoping Ian scores the role, right? Or maybe this was just another way to throw off fans -- making us believe Ian has the role so that when the real actor is announced, it will be a big surprise. Grrrrrrr. She's a sneaky one, that's for sure.

Seriously, I think she gets a kick out of messing with our heads or something. Either that, or she just can't resist driving us crazy.

Do you think E.L. James wants Ian Somerhalder to play Christian?

Beatriz Genovesi

Please. God. Let. This. Be. True. She wants IAN and WE NEED IAN!!!!

Jennifer Scantling

Oh DEF!!! If she has seen him in action as Damon & read about his real life & his foundation, then YES I think she would DEF consider & want him for the part of ChristIAN Grey!! ;-)

Ew! No. If we took every little thing as a hint or clue then that means she favora a few others too, not just Ian. Besides she just said her ideas may surprise us, so that likely rules out Ian and Matt as the main peeps in her mind. Henry Cavill is the perfect CTG, however :)

Sonya Troje Beimert

That would be AWESOME! He is by FAR the best choice for Mr. Grey!! Go Ian!!

Laure... Lauren0983

Nope. He lacks physically and is too old for this role. And he's a bit more feminine than masculine.

Heidi Klein-Lis

HE IS THE ONLY CHOICE.....................
OMG he is the perfect choice for Chrisitan Grey;)
