Matt Bomer; Casting Christian Grey
The article about casting Matt Bomer as Christian Grey to which I'm linking is fairly recent. I'm going to keep following this for many reasons. I've been enjoying watching this grow slowly, and seeing how many people are getting excited about just who is going to play Christian Grey, partly because I love pop culture, and partly because I want to see how the movie turns out.
Who should snag the coveted role of Christian Grey in the highly anticipated film adaptation of E.L. James' erotica novel "Fifty Shades of Grey?" In a recent Mstarz casting poll, fans narrowed their top three picks down to Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer, and Canadian hottie Stephen Amell (among a slew of other fan favorites, these three Hollywood heartthrobs snagged the most votes). Rumors have it that James and producers are still nowhere near casting the official roles of Grey and his kinky sidekick Anastasia Steele... but take a closer look at the three actors fans wish they could see getting down and dirty on the big screen when the time finally does come!
Of course I'm leaning toward Bomer. I think he'd be perfect and I think he might add a spark where it's necessary. I'd be disappointed if he didn't get the part.
Bomer won 23% in Mstarz's recent "Fifty Shades" poll, snagging 411 out of a total 1,787 votes. Among several other contestants, he ranks the overall no 2 top fan favorite. (FYI: in several past Mstarz polls, Bomer actually pulled ahead of Somerhalder).
