There is no doubt that the part of Christian Grey is one of the most hotly-anticipated since Rhett Butler. And everyone knows Ian Somerhalder will play Christian. Or Matt Bomer. Or Henry Cavill. Orrrr none of the above? Erstwhile Fifty Shades screenwriter contender Bret Easton Ellis (who lost out to Kelly Marcel) seems to have the inside track on E.L. James' number one pick. And he gave a major clue, saying:
