'50 Shades' Cast Could Be Revealed on Labor Day! 10 Stars Who May Be on the List (PHOTOS)

Emily Abbate | Aug 30, 2013 Movies

Fifty Shades of GreyIt feels like Fifty Shades of Grey fans have been debating casting options for the big movie for years now. Well, my friends, prepare yourselves and take a deep breath because I have some major casting news. Come Labor Day, we may finally know who is going to play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. SERIOUSLY. According to the producer of the film himself, Dana Brunetti, the actors playing Christian and Ana will likely be confirmed and announced on Labor Day. Um, people, that's only THREE DAYS FROM NOW.

My head is spinning thinking about the idea that all of this speculation may FINALLY be done with! Will fan favorites Ian Somerhalder or Matt Bomer land the role of Christian? Could lesser-known Shailene Woodley snag the role from fan favorite Alexis Bledel? Soon, we'll know!

In the meantime, check out our roundup of top potential Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele candidates, here:

Are you STOKED?! Who do you think will get the roles?

  • Christian Grey: Ian Somerhalder

    Vampire Diaries star Ian has been a fan favorite for the Christian Grey role since day 1. Although we don't actually think he's going to take on the gig with everything else he has going on, it's at the VERY least fun to think about him shirtless.

  • Anastasia Steele: Lucy Hale

    The Pretty Little Liars actress has the look of the part down perfectly. Plus, she's been very vocal about how she'd love to play Anastasia.

  • Christian Grey: Matt Bomer

    Have you SEEN how good Matt Bomer looks in a suit? Swoon! The White Collar actor has been a fan favorite for the Christian role for months now. I'll be the first one to admit that the Fifty Shades of Grey trailers featuring Bomer are pretty steamy.

  • Anastasia Steele: Alexis Bledel

    The former Gilmore Girl is definitely a fan favorite for Ana. She's admitted she "doesn't know" how she feels about the idea, which means she's NOT rejecting it. How gorgeous are her blue eyes?

  • Christian Grey: Henry Cavill

    I don't know if a black suit has ever looked more perfect. Right on the heels of filming Man of Steel, Henry Cavill would make a sexy Christian Grey, don't you agree?

     

  • Anastasia Steele: Emma Watson

    Emma Watson is Hermoine no more! Not only has the Harry Potter star been a fan favorite for months now, but a few months back, an online hackers group Anonymous claimed she was 100 percent CHOSEN for the role. Hey, we wouldn't be mad about it!

  • Christian Grey: Charlie Hunnam

    Charlie Hunnam is arguably the most realistic prediction on the Christian Grey front right now. The Sons of Anarchy star may have to cut that long hair if he lands the gig though!

  • Anastasia Steele: Emilia Clarke

    Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has been stirring up loads of buzz lately and may be our top prediction for the Ana role. The only issue? With Game of Thrones season 4 filming under way, Clarke may have too much on her plate to dedicate herself to Fifty Shades of Grey.

  • Anastasia Steele: Shailene Woodley

    I'll be honest, I'd never heard of Shailene Woodley until her name was brought up as a Fifty Shades of Grey contender. Known for her role in The Secret Life of the American Teenager, the actress reportedly caught author E.L. James' eye earlier this month as an Ana hopeful.

  • Christian Grey: Chris Hemsworth

    I'm melting just looking at this photo of Chris Hemsworth. The actor has been on the Christian Grey role radar since last September. Definitely one of our top predictions!
