Another day, another hot blue-eyed dude brought into the Fifty Shades of Grey casting pool. It's currently being reported that another actor who may nab the role of Christian is Chris Pine. You know, the guy from Star Trek.
Now, don't get me wrong, Chris is smokin' hot, but is he Christian Grey? Eh, not so sure about that one.
At the end of the day, fans have already made up their minds: Ian Somerhalder is Christian Grey. They don't want to hear about anyone else. And if the role does wind up going to another actor, there's going to be hell to pay. Riots! Rooting! Old women getting punched in the face! The fans have already envisioned Ian as their lead, so really, anyone else who's brought into the picture right now is just pointless.
However, that said, unlike some other actors who have been brought into the mix, Pine actually has expressed some interest in playing Christian. He recently said in an interview: "If it's a good script ... I'd take a look at it, but I don't know anything other than that. It’d be a hell of a choice for me, I think. It sounds like an interesting film."
Aw, that's sweet. It sounds like an interesting film to him. But the role of CG is going to a little actor by the name of Ian. I'm sorry, Chris. But hey, loved your work in Star Trek!
Need I even ask ... who do you want to see play Christian?
