Fifty Shades of Grey': Experts (Including Alison Genet) Cast Christian Grey

MTV spoke with some "Fifty Shades" experts including our own owner Alison Genet on who they think would be perfect for the role of Christian Grey.

People just can't stop talking about "Fifty Shades of Grey." E L James has set the literary world on fire with as erotic novel that explores the relationship between a dark and mysterious guy named Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, an innocent college graduate.

The guilty-pleasure book features characters that James created in her"Twilight" fan fiction, and it's now being made into a feature film. That, of course, has had Hollywood buzzing with casting rumors about who could play the role of Christian Grey.

Fans of the trilogy already have strong opinions about the part, so MTV News caught up with some experts for their take.


"Christian definitely needs to be clean-cut, but extremely sexy when disheveled," Alison Genet of told MTV News. "I wouldn't choose a man that is overly chiseled. No juicehead gorillas need apply. Hair that can be neatly brushed, but when playing, it's loose and wild like Johnny Depp hair. Not super short."

Genet of agreed, saying Gosling's undeniable charm could make him the perfect Christian Grey: "Ryan Gosling, Ryan Gosling, and Ryan Gosling. Imaging him in jeans hung low on the hip."

quite honestly i don't want to see any of these men play the role. First of all... rob is already edward... one copper haired beauty for him is enough. I don't look at ryan gossling and think i can't stop looking at him which is what all women seem to feel in the books ... and doesnt ian already play too close a character on TVD? I mean come on i can't see him stretching himself enough in this role.

Who I would like to see play Christian Grey is Henri Cavill (hello gorgeous) or Jensen Ackles (pretty enough and i'd like to see him stretch his acting cred.) And for Anastasia Steele i'd love to see Kathryn McPhee and i even think Ashley Green could play her.

I started reading the story MOTU 4 or 5 years ago, I have read all 3 books at least twice. Incredible and unique writing. Excellent!!!. I would perfer Rob Pattinson as Christian but, if not Ryan Goslin would be my second choice. I also think Kathryn McPhee would make a perfect Anastasia.

Rob is the perfect Christian!!!!

And Kristen is the perfect Anastasia!!!!

I am voting for Joseph Morgan (most recently Klaus of Vampire Diaries - but go checkhim out in the sex sence of BenHur - you will SEE Christian for sure.

@ Judy. That's funny the copy write on these books are last year.....
So, how could someone have read these a couple of years ago?
And I think new actors would be better. This film would be rated R.
If they go by the books....

Hayden Christensen is the only man to play Christian Grey!!

For me Rob is Christian.  I think they should go with a different actress than Kristan to avoid the Twilight comparisons
