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."

And for me Rob IS Christian and Kristen Stewart IS Ana.... I guess everyone has a different idea in his or her head of the ideal for the roles... but no matter what the books are undoubtably erotica at its BEST!

The person who wrote these stories started on fan fic as a twilight fan.  Thats how this person got all this money, by stealing off of our loving beloved author of Twilight.  When Dorothy above made her comment she must not know that this is a Twilight love story, names changed to protect herself, in which she is not so innocent.  The story was ran by a plagiarism program and came up >85% plagiarized to the original story MOTU, oh yeah she wrote it but.....  If ANY of you read fan fic you would know the story.  I won't buy the books nor see the movie she stole from Twilight as far as I'm concerned and there is just so many great and even better stories on that site. So to me this is all moot. Do your MOTU LOL

@dorothy... 50 shades of Gret was MOTU... Written about 4 yrs. I myself read the original fan fic like Judy, waiting in my toes every time Icy updated. Rob should play Christian, but Ana should be someone like Nina Dobrev

Ok, Tricia... So, I didn't read the fan fic. I'm sorry I ever said anything.... And I have better things to do than worry about, on who should play what... Yikes!!!!! I enjoyed all the books. And I dont have to google anything. If a tv produce copy from twilight, than shame on her.

when i think of christian i Think of jensen Ackles but he might be too old for the role and i don't love Ryan Gosling at all not crazy about him  sorry ... Dorothy We read fanfic and they were fanfic before they were turned into novels that you are enjoying now that is how she could have read it before

true Tricia i thought there were better stories on the site but i guess it's who you have handling you

I believe that Joe Mangianello (from True Blood) should be Christian - he is the epitome of PERFECT. I haven't quite got someone pegged for Anastasia. I think Emma Stone could work for her roommate. Jennifer Lawrence or Blake Lively maybe...

I love joe but isnnt he a bit too big the chracter works out but i don't think he would be as buff as joe

I haven't read the book or seen the show but heard about women being tied up with a man's tie?

I'm not really interested in seeing that , I conld be wrong about it but if I liked it I think Ian Somerhalder would be a good pick for any movie that calls for the description they are wanting.because he is so gorgeous!
