Books & Review Fan Frenzy; Fresh Look at Front-Runners for 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie Casting
The results are in!
Books & Review did some recent polls to see which stars are in the front running for the two key roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie.
The steamy "Fifty Shades" trilogy ("Fifty Shades Darker" and "Fifty Shades Freed") tells the story of 22-year-old recent college grad Anastasia Steele, who enters into a dominant/submissive sexual relationship with 27-year old sexy billionaire Christian Grey and both explore the world of BDSM (bondage, dominance, submission, masochism).

Many stars have been linked to the role. But fans already know which favorite actor/actress they want to get the role, and some are adamant about it! Keep checking Books & Review every week for poll and fan frenzy recaps!
In an ongoing poll that includes "Game of Thrones" Emilia Clarke, "Gilmore Girls" Alexis Bledel, Emma Watson, Lucy Hale, "Easy A" Emma Stone, "Desperate Housewives" Lyndsy Fonseca, "In Time," "Gone" Amanda Seyfried, "Sucker Punch" Emily Browning, "Supernatural," Gossip Girl, "Mirror, Mirror" Lily Collins, "The Vampire Diaries" Nina Dobrev, "Arrow" Katie Cassidy, and actress Felicity Jones, only one stood out.
Bledel is currently winning the poll with 274 votes, while Clarke is in second with 163 votes and Hale is in third with 109 votes. Watson is close behind in fourth with 86 votes.
In another new Anastasia poll that includes "Twilight" stars Ashley Greene and Kristen Stewart, and "Percy Jackson & the Olympians" star Alexandra Daddario, the latter is in first place with 89 votes. Greene is in second with 60 votes, and Bledel is in third with 19 votes. Up against Daddario and Greene, and it looks like Bledel is not in the front.
Here is what some fans had to say!
Alexis Bledel. Innocent and shy but completely capable of being a little vixen.
Emilia Clarke looks perfect, stunning and beautiful I never seen her before but she would be a gorgeous Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey!
Lily Collins. She can portray innocent and potential to exude sensual confidence!
Honestly I think Kristen Stewart. She can act, and the paleness
I think Alexandra Daddario is the perfect Ana. She has the long brown hair, alabaster skin, blue eyes too big for her face & pouty lips. She has an innocent beauty requiring no makeup & can be played up sexy when need be. At 26 she looks 22 but has the maturity for the explicit scenes. I'm not sure someone at 22 has the experience to handle those scenes.
Ashley Greene is definitely the on to play Anastasia...I am so surprised they have not found her yet...
I would love to see Emilia Clarke as Ana, I really hope she gets the part after watching her on game of thrones she is more than able to play a MS Anastasia Steele/Grey. Emilia Clarke is the whole package!!
Alexis is perfect for this role....she fits the character of Ana in all ways!!!!
For Christian Grey, fans went in a bigger frenzy to shout out who they wanted to play the key role.
In an ongoing poll for Christian that includes "The Vampire Diaries" star Ian Somerhalder, "Immortals" star Henry Cavill, "Snow White and the Huntsman" star Chris Hemsworth, "White Collar" star Matt Bomer, "True Blood" star Alexander Skarsgard, "Supernatural" star Jensen Ackles, "Drive" star Ryan Gosling, "Magic Mike" star Channing Tatum, "Dancing with the Stars" William Levy, and "Star Wars" star Hayden Christenten, the ongoing winner was obvious.
Somerhalder is still in first place after a week since the poll was up with 1,552 votes. Bomer isn't far behind with 1,139 votes. Skarsgard is in third place with 874 votes, and Cavill isn't far behind with 829 votes.
In another poll that includes actor Colin Egglesfield, "Magic Mike" Alex Pettyfer, "The Dark Knight Rises" Christian Bale, U.K. TV star Mark Wright, "Step Up Revolution" Ryan Guzman, and "Star Trek" Chris Pine, Pettyfer is currently in first place with 359 votes. Guzman is in second with 174 votes. Egglesfield is in third with 171 votes and Bale is in fourth with 163 votes.
Fitness star Jessie Pavelka was newly added onto the Christian Grey train and will be included in an upcoming poll next week.
Here is what the fans had to say.
ALEXANDER SKARSGARD IS THE TOTAL PACKAGE FOR THE OLE OF CHRISTAIN. JUST LOOK AT HIM. THE BODY, THE LOOKS THE HAIR THE EYES. HE HAS THE ACTING RANGE THAT IS PERFECT FOR THE ROLE. HE KNOWS HOW TO USE A PLAYROOM.
WILLIAM LEVY IS:
INCREDIBLY HANDSOME MAN PARFECT BODY THAT LEAVES ALL WOMEN SPEECHLESS NEEDS JUST A LOOK OF HIM AND YOU WILL BE CAPTIVE ON HIMIS THE MAN WHO HAS EVERYTHING IS INCREDIBLY GOOD LOOKING WITH A WONDERFUL SOUL AND OFCOURSE HIS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING ACTOR!!!!AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THIS ROLE NEEDS!!!!
Henry Cavill all the way... he fits Christian Grey to a tee.
William Levy...is the epitome of male beauty and embodies the complete fantasy male lead role and essence that is Christian Grey. William not only possesses all the physical characteristics and sex appeal, but has the talent, acting experience, and ability to perform in a particular role as seen in the numerous Telenovelas.
I think Ian Somerhalder could pull off that deep, dark intensity of Christian.
MATT BOMER is just how the books described. Hope he gets the part :)
Only Ian Somerhalder for me. LOVE HIM!!!!!! The eyes and the mystery behind Christian's character scream Ian. And not to mention SEXY as all get out!!!!!!!!!
Colin Egglesfield!! To play the part of Christian Grey.... He is the total Package...
MATT BOMER! Absolute perfection! He has the model good looks, the beautiful eyes, body, smile to die for! Not to mention he is a great actor with so much talent.
Henry Cavill was made for this role!!!
Chris Hemsworth is Christian Grey for me. He has that look that can go many ways, the entrepreneur, the abused child, the tormented tortured soul who wants to hurt brown haired women, the scared, caring, passionate, overprotective, control freak. And for the love of GOD, his pants can hang off his hips ~ just that way.
Jensen Ackles fits Christian Grey's total description except for his green eyes, and like that can't be taken care of (or left alone). Why is he always overlooked for these big parts? He has an incredible range of emotions and let's face it, He is the most beautiful, Perfect (as Christian is described over and over) , sexy man out there in the right age bracket.
Nobody - and I mean NOBODY will do but Jessie Pavelka.
