Oh please say it ain’t so Robert!
After50 Shades of Grey author EL James was seen at Pattinson’s house party over the weekend, rumours have been swirling that Robert may be one of many actors in line to play the role of the brooding Christian Grey.
Can we just point out HOW DUMB THIS WOULD BE? Considering 50 Shades of Grey began as Twilight fanfic, Rob would basically be doing his best non-vampire version of Edward Cullen.
Besides Robert, The Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder, Arrow star Stephen Amell and Henry Cavill are all rumored to be in the running for the role. This may be an unpopular opinion but I don’t think any of these actors will work. If we must bring it onto the big screen, why not go with someone who isn’t as well known instead?
So far, Nowhere Boy director Sam Taylor-Wood (who is married to Kick-Ass actor Aaron Johnson) has been reportedly tapped to helm the project.
