Stephen Amell up for Christian Grey Role!
Take a deep breath ladies, your wishes may be coming true! CW’s own Stephen Amell may be our Christian Grey!
Now, I know we just posted a story affirming that Ian Somerhalder (TVD) auditioned for the coveted role, but we have it on good authority (a video on his FB page) that Stephen Amell, Oliver Queen of CW’s Arrow, has also had meetings about the 50 Shades of Grey movie project.
Amell’s FB video did not make a whole lot of sense. He said:
“I get questions about Christian Grey all the time. That project is a long way off. I know this, because I had a meeting about it. Long way off. I mean, not that long, but not close. I wouldn’t call it long, but I wouldn’t call it close.”
Not really sure what any of that means, but all I heard was “I had a meeting about it,” and that’s all I need. The 31 year-old actor just fits the Grey character so well. He is rugged, yet handsome and sophisticated, when he wears a tie he pulls the business man look off perfectly and he has that whole undercover badass thing down pat! Amell, you can be my Christian Grey any day!
So what do you think? Will Amell make the perfect Christian Grey? Or would you rather see Somerhalder take the role?In my opinion, if the role comes between Amell and Somerhalder, it’s a win win.
