Best Three Actors to Play Christian Grey (from Fifty Shades of Grey)

I was having this conversation the other day with one of my colleagues and the both of us were having a really hard time deciding who would be best for the part.  We had both read the books (along with millions of others) and realized that trying to cast this movie would be hard.  So I decided to put together my own list and share it with everyone.

From the buzz around Hollywood, there are a lot of actors who have a big interested in playing this character.

Universal Pictures and Focus Features (who secured the rights to the film version of the book)  now have one of the most difficult jobs to be performed – casting Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.  I am sure this is kind of like how it was to find Bella and Edward from Twilight.   I do not envy the job of the casting agents – that will be hell and they are probably going to get some form of negative press for whoever they pick (because we all know you can’t please everyone).  However, I did want to add my own opinion as to who should be on that list (and I really want to hear from others also!!!).  Since I am going to be one of those people that will definitely be checking out the movie, I thought that it would be appropriate.

So, here are the Best 3…Actors to Play Christian Grey (from Fifty Shades of Grey):

1.  Alex Pettyfer

2Alexander Skarsgard

3. Henry Cavill

I have to say that I thought long and hard about this (because this casting will determine whether I actually go and see the movie) and Alex Pettyfer is at the top of my list.  Not only is he the one that I can picture immediately as Christian Grey, the others are far behind him.  He is younger than Christian Grey but there is something about him that exudes the characteristics of Grey and all that he is.  Plus he has the looks down and I can definitely picture him with no shirt on…so I am Team Alex!  I know that he doesn’t have the best reputation but with landing a role like this hopefully he would understand how lucky he is and all the doors that this role will open!

My second choice is someone that is a little older (because he is in his 30s) but Alexander Skarsgard still has the looks and the talent to pull off the character.  He also has a way of really getting into character and making you believe in who he is portraying.  Plus, Alexander looks amazing without a shirt and without anything on – plus he is the one actor who has shown a lot of skin (on True Blood) and doesn’t seem to shy away from it if that is what the role calls for.

My last choice was even a surprise to me but the more I thought about it, the more I could picture Henry Cavill as Christian Grey.  Plus after the Immortals, I know that he looks great without a shirt on and those eyes just draw you in.  There would have to be a change in the hair color but with Hollywood movie magic that shouldn’t be a problem.

Who do you think should be cast as Christian Grey?  I really want to know what others are thinking out there – so leave comments!
