Ian Somerhalder Is Christian Grey When He & Nina Dobrev Get 'Back Together'

ian somerhalder nina dobrevFormer lovahs Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev attended their first public event together since their tragic breakup a few weeks ago. The actors were both at The CW Upfront in New York for The Vampire Diaries, and according to sources, the pair couldn't have been more lovely and cordial to each other.

And somehow, I don't know, Ian has just gotten a little hotter.

Few things can be more awkward than having to deal with an ex in public shortly after a breakup. But for celebs, it's part of the job. Some of them don't handle it well (*cough*Taylor Swift*cough*), but others? Others manage to keep it as profesh as possible. And that right there is class, my friends. And that's also why Ian is the perfect Christian Grey.

In order to play Christian, one ought to have a few things: Looks, obvs. But beyond that, it would be nice to see an actor who's somewhat intelligent, and who has charisma and class. Ian clearly has all those things. We've always known that, but when a dude and a lady can remain genuine friends after a breakup, you know he's a catch. (For someone else.)

Only time will tell who the real Christian is, but my vote's for Ian. Sure, Matt Bomer's a good-looking dude, but the real question is: Is he friends with his exes?

Who do you want to see play Christian?

No one could be a better Christian than Ian. He is the epitome of hot, he can act, and he's shown his devilish side on TVD which will translate well as Grey. Team Ian!

Just because Ian and Nina are no more doesnt mean Ian can't play Christian Grey. As i see it...the character fits his persona and vise versa. He wants the roll...he is the perfect fit for the roll. JUST LET HIM HAVE IT ALREADY.....GEESH
