Many women would die and go to heaven if news breaks that Ryan Gosling will play Christian Grey in the upcoming film adaptation of E.L James’ steamy novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
But according to James herself, the role of Christian hasn’t even been set in stone.
“As usual, it’s all been misreported,” she recently told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show after reports that her husband Niall had spilled the beans on the film’s cast.
“What happened is that his local paper … reported on my husband being the inspiration for Christian Grey,” she continued. “Underneath it, they put a picture of Ryan Gosling as well. So, that’s how that [rumor] came about.”
But while there may be a lot of speculation on who would play the best Christian Grey, James says the film is “far too early in the process.” So that means, there are plenty of other men who could be suited for the role!
But personally, after reading the book and being
horrified surprised by the contents, I don’t think I can deal with Gosling being in the movie. I’d much rather see him play a mysterious driver…or revert back to his Breaker High days, thank you very much!!
Remember that alleged yet undeniably bogus feud between Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart? That sh*t just got real. Well, not really, but The Hunger Games and Twilight stars are going for the same movie role and in an effort to make rivalries out of thin air (like magic!) a spat is being concocted.
The two ladies are going for Peyton Loftis in Lie Down In Darkness. The character is a beaut of a girl whose family contributes to her ultimate suicide. That is dark! It’s based on the book of the same name by William Styron.
Both actresses have expressed their interested in the role. ”I want to play Peyton more than anything I can possibly taste or touch in my life,” Stewart said to Elle. ”I want to play her so bad. They’re the most fucked-up family. There’s a script adaptation . . . and it’s good. Two people vying for the part [of the father] are Daniel Day-Lewis and Colin Firth. Daniel would be perfect.”
Then Jennifer Lawrence went and told W Magazine: ”“I am obsessed with that part. I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play . . . If someone else gets the part, I’m afraid they won’t do it right.
“I’m trying to write the director . . . to convince him that I should be in his movie. I’ll chase him if I have to. I’ll sit outside his house.”
These ladies are both too laid back to get into any sort of Hollywood-style feud (thankfully) but we have to say, this must be the most difficult decision of life for the casting director. [Source]
Who do you think would fit the role?
Jesse McCartney will be heading to TV with a guest starring role on “CSI Las Vegas.” TVLine reports Jesse will be playing Wes, a recent college grad who passes out while driving and crashes his car and in the wake of the mysterious incident, Wes bonds with investigator Nick (George Eads) as they try to piece together what happened.
Jesse is also busy back in the studio working on a new album. He also debuted a new fragrance this year called “Wanted By Jesse.”

Chelsea Handler may bring the laughs on stage, but the comedian is now set to appear in a dramatic film role, reports E Online.
It is reported that the ‘Chelsea Lately’ star will take on the dark role of a restless housewife in the adaptation of Eric Bogosian’s 2001 novel, Mall.
Handler’s castmates include ‘Law & Order: Criminal Intent’ star Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays a ‘voyeuristic businessman’ and is also producing the film with partner Erika Hampson and Sam Maydew.
“This film will be a comment on social violence,” D’Onofrio said in a statement. “It begins as a man walks through the front door of a suburban mall armed to the teeth, causing five strangers to embark on a night that will change them forever. As the bullets fly, one teenage boy hurtles through the night on a collision course with the man he will become.”
Joe Hahn of Linkin Park will also unleash his directing debut in this movie, and Bogosian will make a cameo as a store owner.
Wow – I love Handler, but I never saw this coming. It’s a pleasant surprise though, I think she’ll do great in this. She’s obviously shown she has the acting capabilities before, appearing on ‘In The Motherhood’ and always doing comedy sketches on ‘After Lately.’ Can’t wait to see this, I’m a huge fan!
For once, it appears that Lindsay Lohan is being fought over to appear in a film. TMZ reports that Victoria Gotti herself has handpicked Lohan to play her in an upcoming film about her father and notorious gangster John Gotti.
Lohan even beat out Blake Lively and Sienna Miller for her new role as Victoria Gotti. Who would have thought this day would come? I’m personally so happy for her!
Sources close to the production tell TMZ that producers were considering both Blake and Sienna for the role, but John Gotti’s famously blonde daughter wasn’t having it, insisting Lindsay get the role instead. This isn’t surprising, apparently, as according to sources Victoria is a good friend of the Lohan family and often spends time with them on Long Island. An inside job? Maybe. But Lohan should take what she can get.
Lindsay is currently in L.A. auditioning for “Superman,” but TMZ is told she already has a plane ticket back to NYC for April 12th to close the Gotti deal for good.
I think this merrits celebration. It will be her first movie role since her cameo in Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Machete’ as a meth-addicted daughter turned nun, so I’m hoping this role will cause her to be taken a little more seriously. I’ve always been a huge Lohan fan, so I’m rooting for her. It’s time to move on up!
Lindsay Lohan has been offered the role of a lifetime – playing a Charles Manson victim in the film “Eyes of a Dreamer.”
Lohan, who would be playing Sharon Tate if the deal goes through, would be starring in the Brad Wyman project along with Tyler Shields, the celebrity photog who snapped her promo pix for Inferno before she was fired.
Hmm, is that a connection I see? Now we know how Lindsay got the offer!
Wyman produced mega-successful ‘Monster’ with Charlize Theron back in the day, so this project actually has some potential.
We think you should take it, Lindsay! It’s time you started making movies again.
Although cutie Chris Evans has said yes to play Captain America, Emily says she is not interested to play Peggy, Captain America’s love.
This story was reported by PerezHilton however there has been no reason offered by Blunt why she turned down the role.
Sources say that Keira Knightley and Alice Eve are next on Marvel’s list.
