'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie Casting: Robert Pattinson Reveals, 'I am playing Christian Grey' While Fans Want Real News [VIDEO]
Pattinson recently did an interview with MSN and was asked if he would consider playing a role in the highly anticipated film adaption based on E.L. James' popular naughty books.
"I am playing that part," he said like he was giving a serious answer. He added, "I also wrote the book." Then he laughed.
So much for "real news," which is what the fans are dying for at this stage in developing the film.
Nevertheless, being the "Sexiest Man Alive," many fans want Pattinson to play the BDSM-crazed 27-year-old sexy billionaire Christian Grey, who dominates 22-year-old virginal, innocent Anastasia Steele.
"Surely something along the lines of 'Fifty Shades of Grey,'" Pattinson replied. "I would really like to do that and put a spin on it by inverting the casting roles: making the woman the one who is punishing the man. It would be so much fun. Something like 'Misery' ... but really he loves to be in that situation, you know?"
Pattinson always jokes about anything "Fifty Shades" when he's asked if he would like to play Christian. In the past, he openly admitted in the past that he would lick the pages of "Fifty Shades of Grey."
In another interview, he said that he's always played weird characters (many will argue that vampires aren't weird), so the part of Christian Grey might not be far from weird.
"I mean every part I played is always kind of like sort of weird. But I don't know, I find kind of random things, the movie I'm doing next, is a real guy, an interrogator and he's not particularly weird or anything, he's just like, he's kind of, well he's a little weird," the "Cosmopolis" actor said.
Christian goes through a lot of obstacles and lives in a world that most of us have probably never seen or heard of before. So it might be weird anyway. Who better to play a part like this than an actor who plays weird, Edward Cullen-like parts?
One Books & Review commenter said, "I think Robert P. would be an excellent choice to play the role of Christian. Something about his mysterious personality in Twilight reminds me of Christian. Controlling, sweet, sensual, and not to mention his looks; square jaw, blue eyes, hair, body. I think he could really get into character and bring Christian to life on screen."
