Ian Somerhalder is one clever boy. As the rumors about him starring as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie continue to swirl, the actor is doing everything in his power to stoke the fire and capitalize on the buzz. To that end, the actor shared some vague musings on Twitter, which fans can't help but interpret as a sign he's totally going to play the sexy millionaire.
What musings, say you? THESE MUSINGS:
Still can't sleep-jet lagg. Working on new movie script-take'n short break..
What I'm hearing through all that terrible spelling and grammar is that Ian is working on a new movie script. A NEW MOVIE SCRIPT. Could it be the first draft of the Fifty Shades film?
Then he shared:
Paris-it was short and sweet, thanks for the abundance of love. Great day in London, rehearsing new movie. So. Damn. Happy. Here. In. Europe.
He's rehearsing a new movie! Is he running lines as Christian? Is he sitting with casting directors trying to pin down who'll play Anastasia?
And what about this staccato phrasing of his -- "So. Damn. Happy. Here. In. Europe." If that doesn't sound like something Christian Grey would write, I don't know what would. He's 100 percent channeling Mr. Grey.
So yeah, Ian's sending us subtle hints that he's tightening that gray tie as we speak. I mean, I bet if we added up the longitudes and latitudes of the locations from which he sent each tweet, the sum would equal the number of pages in Fifty Shades. He's just that good at throwing us signals.
And if Ian's not going to play Christian, he certainly knows how to play the crowd. This guy's gotten so much press off this rumor, it's ridiculous.
OR IS IT.
Do you think Ian's going to star in the movie?
