50 Shades of Grey Alexander Skarsgard Casting Rumor

Buzz In: Can You See Alexander Skarsgard as Christian Grey?

Well, it looks like Ian Somerhalder's not the only one who wants to star in Fifty Shades of Grey. Alexander Skarsgard has recently expressed interest in playing the smoldering young billionaire, citing his True Blood experience as a reason why he's perfect for the role of Christian Grey. To be fair, Skarsgard hadn't even heard of the book until the interview with Access Hollywood and was joking when he said, "I was born to play that part." However, Skarsgard fits the bill for some of the necessary requirements and, like Somerhalder, shouldn't have a problem with the nudity. What's your take — can you see Skarsgard as Christian?

Alex is perfect for this part (heck he practically already plays it, plus just watch the Calvin Klein add for Encounter. He has the attitude, the physique, the looks, everything & so what if he's just a few years older than the character bc he's definitely not out of his prime) & for all the ppl screaming Matt Bommer...PLEASE NO. He's GAY people! That's about as far from Christian Grey as possible!!!  And don't even start to attack me over his orientation because I don't care about what he chooses to do with his time off camera, but he is definitely NOT suited to play this part!! He's not even good looking enough.

I think ALEXANDER SKARSGARD who plays 'ERIC NORTHMAN" in True Blood should play Christian Grey, he fits the Look, he has that tall, lean, fit body - wears his pants down off the hip and even the hair seems to be what I imagine it would look like after him running his hands through it !!!   I hope the movie will be as "HOT" as the books - imagination can take you anywhere, but once it's put to screen it isn't always as good !!!

I think Daniel sanjunta should be considered for Christian grey! He is who I pictured as I read the book! All the guys that I've seen that are being considered do not fit Christian grey to me at ALL!

William Levy.  Think on it. He' perfect.

Ian is perfect for the part. When I read the book I can already picture him acting out the scenes. I Really don't think anyone would be better. He is sexy, dark, and mysterious. His role of damon on TVD is very similar to Christian Grey. Check him out and you'll see what I mean. PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT. Go ian!

Oh my yes, all the time I was reading the three books I could only see Alexander. While Ian is a really good looking guy for me he lacks the mystery, intensity, humor, and maturity for the part. Alex's ability to convey every emotion with his soul searching eyes and his talent of making all the characters he plays take on a life of their own would make him the perfect choice.

Hey ladies take a look at Gabriel Aubrey as Christian. I cant wait!!

Yes please!  I can absolutely see that.  Give his hair some reddish tint, and um.. yum.  I may need to re-read now, just to cast it and watch it play out in my head.  Girls, quit picking out cute, sweet looking boys with no fire.  Christian has dark and evil inside him, with a puppy dog side that CAN get brought out.  Christian needs real fire in him.

No. Sorry, but I just don't see him as Christian. Ian is perfect for the part. Tossled hair, dark, smoldering stare - this is Ian, not Alex. I love him in True Blood, but here I say no.

pbartteacher Absolutely. If you read the description of the character Alexander fits it perfectly. With the exception of his age, ASkars could easily be Chrisian. His TB experience would give him an edge over the competition. Nudity. Check. Sexy. Check. Dark. Check. Smart. Check.   Universal are you listening?
