As for Christian and Ana, many names are being thrown out there.
"True Blood" star Alexander Skarsgard recently appeared in a short advertisement for Calvin Klein's latest fragrance, "Encounter."
"There's little doubt the new ad wasn't influenced by the latest phenomenon considering how close the short film attempts to mirror elements of James' novel. Even the ad's dark blue and grey tones bear a striking resemblance to the covers of the "50SoG" novels," Business Insider said.
There's even focus of Skarsgard riding up an elevator - an imperative place of interest for the book-to the home shrouded in glass windows.
"Man of Steel" star Henry Cavill looked extremely sexy in a 2008 cologne commercial that features him sharply dressed as a Christian Grey-to-be about to board a helicopter emblazoned with a letter "G," according to Policy Mic. Cavill fans have also started a Pinterest page, "Henry Cavill (Christian Grey)," where they post pictures of Cavill resembling Grey's poses and demeanor.
Among fan favorites are "The Vampire Diaries" star Ian Somerhalder, Colin Egglesfield, Jessie Pavelka, and "White Collar" Matt Bomer.
