[POLL] 50 Shades of Grey: Who Will Play Christian And Anastasia?

The competition between who should play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele is fierce among readers of the best-selling trilogy.

Several weeks ago, Patch surrounding New York Times bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey at Watchung Booksellers and elsewhere. The continued interest surrounding the steamy trilogy penned by British author E L James has been strong enough to have us wondering what's next.

Now that the movie rights have been sold to Universal Pictures and Focus Features, it was only a matter of time before debates broke out over who should play the main two characters capturing the imaginations of millions of readers around the world.

Already, Deadline.com is reporting that Angelina Jolie could possibly sign on to direct the movie version—so she won't be playing leading lady.

With more than 10 million copies sold so far, the book has been a marketing boon with even the likes of Brooks Brother’s featuring Eight Shades of Grey Ties!

The Huffington Post has put together a list and photo slideshow of candidates for all the story's major players. Did they get it right on Anastasia Steele, the headstrong but naive recent college graduate? What about secretive and complex billionaire businessman Christian Grey, with whom she has an erotic sexual relationship that has female readers swooning over every page?

Take our poll and let us know who you see playing the leading roles.

I know i am repeating words but that guy in the pic above is the only face i have seen that really made me gasp when i saw it. he is exactly the face i have imagined as grey and will be the face i see when i read the story again!!

I think Christian gray, should be play by the young in the movie unfaithful with Richard Gere, the one his wife cheated with.

Gerard Butler would be the PEREFCT Christian Grey!!!!! That is who I imagined as I read. The Phantom even plays a little into that role... I personally can only imagine Gerard Buyler as Christian!

what is the guys name in the picture with emmy rossum? he is perfect whats his name?
Irene Clapp October 23, 2012 at 03:01 PM
Ryan is not that good looking. His eyes are too close together, he's not tall either. Bottom line he doesn't fit the Christian Grey description. The unknown photo presented by Stacey is the great match!
Irene Clapp October 23, 2012 at 03:03 PM
I totally agree!
Irene Clapp October 23, 2012 at 03:07 PM
We should rally for this no name guy to play Christian, because he totally fit as describe in the book.
Carolyn November 16, 2012 at 05:27 PM
The gorgeous guy at the top of these posts is Gaspard Ulliel. He does the Bleu de Chanel tv commercial and you can see a making of it on You Tube as well. He has a wonderful French accent which he'd have to hide but other than that he makes a perfect Christian Grey in my books!
Kerri December 09, 2012 at 03:21 AM
James Scott for sure the other day I told my girlfriend Ej Demaria from days would play it the best I was so excited when I goggled it to see I wasn't alone
melissa wassel January 04, 2013 at 07:41 AM
I agree...Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ the beautiful man in the photo who is a Turkish actor should play the face of Christian Grey...
Cathy Stewart January 05, 2013 at 02:33 AM
I totally agree!! This guy IS Christian Grey!! http://chouchicblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/christian-grey.jpg
Anne January 17, 2013 at 04:34 AM
http://chouchicblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/christian-grey.jpg He is Kivanc Tatlitug, a Turkish model and actor. He is very well known as the Brad Pitt of Middle East.
Kate Hettinger April 04, 2013 at 10:12 PM
That Kivanc Tatlitug guy look PERFECT!
Kate Hettinger April 04, 2013 at 10:15 PM
@LizzieKing I agree. I also literally gasped when I saw his picture and shouted "That's him!" Hahah
Kate Hettinger April 04, 2013 at 10:15 PM
I'm sorry but Ryan Gosling should not be picked! It's not fitting! It can't just be any good looking guy.
Robbie Watson April 08, 2013 at 03:56 AM
>Michelle Smith.....I completely agree that Gerard Butler could make the PERFECT for Christian Grey. He can have a smouldering look, a romantic look and a very severe look. Sounds great to me!
BrittanyLynn April 16, 2013 at 12:22 AM
Alexander Skarsgard who plays Eric Northman of True Blood is my perfect Christian!! So amazingly sexy in the show.. also I think people are for getting that Grey is in his mid 20s a lot of people are suggesting actors in there 40s and 50s which although incredibly hot doesn't go with the story .
Lynn Storey May 20, 2013 at 05:03 AM
Benedict Cumberbatch is Christian Grey.
