Star Hints He Wants to Play Christian Grey -- Have Mercy!

Say What!? 54

John StamosWhen it comes to leading actors wanting to play Christian Grey, who do you think of? For me it's a tie between Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder. Ugh, I could stare at those hunky shirtless stars for days! You know who I don't think about, though? John Stamos. Which is why I find it hilarious that the man's vying for a part in the Fifty Shades movie! Well, sort of.

The former Full House star tweeted out yesterday that he wants a part in Fifty Shades. Although he didn't say Christian specifically, something about the whole concept irks me. I mean, come on, aside from being way too old for the part (Christian is 27 and Stamos is 49) -- there are so many other wrong factors here.

Does he have the right brownish copper hair? Yes. But that's about where it stops. Christian Grey is supposed to have this ridiculous undeniable sex appeal that I just don't feel with Mr. Stamos. I look at Stamos, and I think man old enough to be my father.

At this point, it just feels like any and every actor is having their name thrown into the ring for this big role. I'm just praying that whoever is casting this shebang really chooses someone that embodies the man we read about in the trilogy, a man that will be known as "the actor who played Christian Grey" for the rest of his career. Sorry, Uncle Jesse, but I think you've already hit your niche. If not from Full House, then most DEFINITELY as the Oikos man.

Do you think Christian Grey needs to be played by a younger actor?

I think he is a major hunk, with tons of sex appeal. I'd love to see John in that role.

I think he could pull off the character if the character wasn't so young.  I bet if Christian was supposed to be a little older he'd do a damn fine job!  Anyone see his Law and Order episode? He was fantastic.

In a majorly redundant point many actors would love for the chance to play the part of Christian Grey in the up coming film.

Personally id love the idea of being able to play an eccentric billionaire, with an underlying sadistic fetish for control, domination and BDSM.
But then again Who wouldn't?

Little girl, you clearly don't know what you're talking about. Older men are frequently much sexier than these younger, utterly generic Hollywood "hunks". ;) Frankly, I don't think it matters at ALL who they cast in the lead role. Every single actor in the appropriate age range that I can think of is going to play it exactly the same way. At this point, they're going to just pick a guy based on his looks. I'd be totally down for John Stamos!

What do you mean he has the brownish copper hair? What the heck are you looking at?! John's hair is super dark brown w/ no hint of red. And no he's not CG! Way too old. No one compares to Henry Cavill!

I like John, but it is a younger role. Hair can be died for the part as far as hair color. They just need a not recognize Hottie of an actor to play the part!!!

No way. He is too short and skinny. He will always be the uncle on Full House. He should not be considered.
