James, 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).

The 29-year-old actor is a little older than Christian, but fans are putting him in the spotlight for his sexy, chiseled bod and grey eyes.
Pavelka is best known as the hunky trainer on the Lifetime show "DietTribe." He also starred in the movie "Friday Night Lights," and "12 Men of Christmas."
Gather Entertainment reported that although Pavelka does not have the same amount of acting experience as some other "Fifty Shades" nominees, he has the look for the part.
"He definitely has the right look for the role, and at least he's comfortable in front of a camera. As a trainer he also has plenty of experience getting uncomfortably close to women and making them sweat," Gather reported.
Fans for actor Joseph Morgan also reached out, saying that "The Vampire Diaries" star has what it takes to be the Christian Grey that female fans are dying to know in real life. Morgan, 31, also starred in the movie "Immortals" as Lysander.
Both have big competition. Morgan has some co-star competition with Ian Somerhalder, who seems to be in the frontrunner in recent polls.
Somerhalder, 33, who plays Damon on the sexy vampire TV show, has been showing that he wants to play the role of 27-year-old Christian. Last month, he even held a sort of campaign on his Twitter, making it clear that he's more than qualified to take the role, according to The Hollywood Gossip. Fans are dying for him to be the one. One commenter said, "It has to be Ian Somerhalder!" Another said, "Only Ian Somerhalder can pull off that look of Christian Grey!"
Somerhalder is winning a current Books & Review poll with over 2,000 votes.
"Magic Mike" star Alex Pettyfer, 22, has been added to list of stars in earlier polls and reports. In "Magic Mike," he plays a stripper, Adam. He is also winning the current Books & Review poll by 35%.
In June, the 22-year-old actor told Hollywood Life that he hasn't read the book. But fans know that he is not shy to get down and dirty with his recent acting performance.
Entertainment Weekly picked Pettyfer as their Christian Grey:
"Pettyfer is the perfect choice because he has that tall, tousle-haired physical presence, and with his pretty-yet-rugged features, he can pass as someone in his mid- to late twenties. Plus, Christian is supposed to be a strange mix of young and old - he might run a big corporation and speak like an 80-year-old man, but there's a youthful vulnerability that Anastasia sees in him. Pettyfer has played roles where his good looks were his primary attribute (Beastly) and also isn't afraid to show some skin (Magic Mike)."
"Immortals" star Henry Cavill, 29, and "White Collar" star Matt Bomer, 34, are both very linked to the crucial role.
"True Blood" star Alexander Skarsgard, 35, and actor Colin Egglesfield, 39 are also considered front-runners to play the S&M-crazed Christian Grey.
