Matt Bomer Is Latest Fan Favorite for Christian Grey but Anastasia May Surprise You

OMG 214

Matt BomerWe all have our own opinions about which actor and actress would be absolutely perfect for our favorite Fifty Shades of Grey leading roles. I mean, seriously, at this point, I think it's safe to say that almost every name in Hollywood has been thrown into the ring for Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Two names that keep coming back, though? None other than Matt Bomer and Emilia Clarke. A recent poll from reveals that fans think Emilia and Matt are the perfect Ana and Christian. Well, 58 percent of the 40,000 fans they surveyed, anyway.

I don't know, guys. As much as I like both actors individually, I'm not sold on Emilia. I mean, hello -- Matt oozes Christian perfection. In my mind, there are better Anas to play his sexual counterpart. Just sayin'.

Like Alexis Bledel, for instance.

I just think about Matt and Alexis in the two leading roles and it totally reminds me of everything I read in the Fifty Shades series. The way they handle themselves, their mannerisms (especially Alexis' innocence) -- it could be perfect!

Granted, I also wouldn't mind if a few newbies were thrown into the ring. Let's be real, Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele are roles of a lifetime. Someone fresh could take this on without any preconceived notions about their style, nail it, and forever embody the sexiness of the series.

Hey, to each her own. Realistically it's smarter to catch bigger-named actors because that's what we the fans are hankering after. I certainly wouldn't mind staring at a few too many movie posters with a half-naked Matt Bomer. Not one bit.

Who do you want to play Christian and Ana?

Are we seriously still talking about the casting for 50 Shades of Grey, a book that has been out of the spotlight for months now? 

How about we take a hiatus and maybe just announce when they've made a final decision?

Honestly ... I hope EL James are reading and watching what the public wants .. Most want Matt Bomer .. and she needs to invite him to do the role

I agree what you say about matt and alexis. after reading the books I've made an image of christian and ana in my head and they're just made for this roles (based on looks) it kinda looks like E.L. james had both of them in mind while writing this books! ;) plus if you see how matt plays that wonanizer in white collar.. yeah, I would love it to see him as CG ! ;))

Matt told the world he was not comfy even doing Magic Mike so I dought he would want to play CG!

I am an Ian fan number one and Ian is well known that he wants the roll!

So sorry, but a gay man can NOT convincingly play a gay man.  And besides, he is not that great of an actor!!

Lori Martinson Cyples

ugh.....he cannot play a STRAIGHT MAN convincingly!  sheesh!

Conny Brabbs

Ian Somerhalder is the perfect one to play CG..
