Here's who should be playing Christian Grey

I have been stewing on this news since I received word from the EL James newsletter.

There were a lot of correct answers to the question of “Who will play Christian Grey”… and Charlie Hunnam was not one of them!

Some correct answers being:

Robert Pattinson

Haha, you saw that one coming didn’t you?

But let’s face it, anyone who is anyone that read 50 Shades while it was still Fanfic had Christian in their minds as Robert… why else does EL James think her books became a success in the first place?

She wrote the fanfic at exactly the right time - when every woman from 10-years to 112-years old thought that there was nothing sexier than “Edward Cullen”...(Okay, sorry Jacob fans).

Ian Somerhalder

Ian oh Ian…you could (bite me and) tie me up every day of my life and do all those sweet delicious things to me as much as you'd like.

Jessie Pavelka

Jessie, paint your picture about how it’s gonna be…you tied me up and whipped my butt, yet from you I’ll never be free.

Taylor Kitsch

Am I the only one that thinks Taylor is one of the sexiest creatures I’ve ever seen in my life? Ok, the reason I put him as number 4 for Christian is because he is definitely my number 1 choice for Gideon Cross!

I just hope that when the Crossfire novels make their TV debut, that they made the right choice when it comes to Gideon, I think choices like these either make or break something that so many fans have come to love.  (If anyone says Henry Cavill one more time I’m going to seriously freak out! Hehehe

P.S. Before I piss anyone off...these are just my choices and I know that everyone has different tastes!

So, what do you guys think about the official choice?
