Fans of literature (and porn) have been chomping at the bit for months, dying to know: Which hot young actor will be cast as Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey?
The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder opened up a kinky can of worms when he said he’d be game for the role during an interview with Ryan Seacrest on April 23. “Beyond the shadow of a doubt, I think that would be a phenomenal opportunity!”
Well, don’t get your panties in a bunch just yet, Damon Salvatore fans.
Somerhalder took to Twitter on Wednesday to take the hysteria down a notch:
“OK ,this ChristianGrey thing has gotten out of control.Know this,
Im not”desperate”to do anything except relax today.Be positive.”
Of course, that’s not to say Somerhalder still won’t get the role at some point but should Fifty Shades fans now turn their attention toward that other sexy vampire who’s vying for the role? Alexander Skarsgard, we’re coming for you.
