"Fifty Shades of Grey," written by bestselling author E.L. 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 Christian's world of BDSM (bondage, dominance, submission, masochism) while trying to understand their complicated relationship.
"Superman" star Henry Cavill has always been in the spotlight to play Christian Grey.
As revealed by PolicyMic, Cavill was the inspiration for Edward Cullen in "The Twilight Saga."
"Indisputably the most difficult character to cast, Edward is also the one that I'm most passionately decided upon. The only actor I've ever seen who I think could come close to pulling off Edward Cullen is Henry Cavill," said Stephanie Meyer, the author of the "Twilight" series, told MTV News in 2009. "Henry was Albert, the young son in 'The Count of Monte Cristo.' Can you see it? I know I can!"
Christian Grey's character was inspired by Edward Cullen. James first wrote "Fifty Shades of Grey" as Twilight fan-fiction.
The 29-year-old actor was reportedly in preliminary talks with the producers of "Fifty Shades," Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti.
According to Policy Mic, Cavill met De Luca in early July at Luca's office in Culvar City, Cali., where Cavill was promoting his upcoming movie "Man of Steel" at Comic-Con San Diego. Rumors claim "The Tudors" actor was seen coming in and out of De Luca's home/office while wearing Christian Grey's signature plaid shirt and five o'clock shadow.
Cavill fans give proof that actor should be picked to play Christian Grey because of a 2008 cologne commercial that features "Superman" as a sharply dressed Christian Grey-to be about to board a helicopter emblazoned with a letter "G," according to Policy Mic. They have also started a Pinterest page, "Henry Cavill (Christian Grey)," where they post pictures of Cavill resembling Grey's poses and demeanor.
The "Immortals" actor also expressed interest in playing Edward Cullen during the casting time (which Robert Pattsinson plays him now). Will he express interest in Christian Grey as well?
Actor Colin Egglesfield recently read a script during a radio interview with Kiss 92.5 Hit Music. His sexy, husky, deep voice could be big competition for other stars.
It was also recently reported that "The Vampire Diaries" star Ian Somerhalder was meeting with "Fifty Shades" people in L.A., and he revealed this information to his fans at "The Vampire Diaries" Convention in New Jersey. He is the front-runner in a B&R roll.
