[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, Montclair 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.

Lynnx80 July 31, 2012 at 02:41 AM
Colin Egglesfield would make a great Christian grey
Betty Deck August 02, 2012 at 11:58 PM
From the descriptions in the book I think Emma Watson and Ryan Gosling are the closes.
Jenifer August 03, 2012 at 06:51 PM
Ian Somerhalder FTW!!!!!! and Emma Watson!!!!! I love Ian Somerhalder!!!!!!
Nicole August 07, 2012 at 12:50 PM
I think so to. I cant imagine anyone else playing this role but Peter Facinelli.
JenS28 August 14, 2012 at 09:37 PM
Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel!!!!!! They fit the parts perfectly!!
Karen August 29, 2012 at 07:01 AM
He's not an actor but I keep picturing Chris Martin (of Coldplay!) as Christian. Hasn't everybody else thought this too??? He seems/looks like him to the t. Hello out there! Shouldn't he be the one!

I know that if we all liked the same men it would be a boring and very challenging world but...come on, surely its clear that Henry Cavill should play Christian Grey, he's perfect. He's sexy, beautiful, has that boyish cheeky twinkle in his eyes and has a body to die for....he is most certainly my Christian Grey
Su Jimenez September 06, 2012 at 05:54 PM
Henry Cavill for Christian Grey & Ashley Greene for Anastasia Steele...the best good-looking duo!!!
kelly middleton September 17, 2012 at 10:56 AM
what is wrong with everyone?, the clear choice is MATT BOMER, he is awesome and will be perfect as mr grey...... the role calls for someone young...
Jackie Marbs September 19, 2012 at 06:46 PM
Christian Grey is SUPPOSED to be young! 27! Read the book :-) I vote for Channing Tatum (and wife?) or Chris Pine
Jackie Marbs September 19, 2012 at 06:48 PM
Henry Cavill is DEF sexy... but maybe too old to be 27 yr old C.Grey?
Jackie Marbs September 19, 2012 at 06:49 PM
Yes! Matt Bomer would be great too !
Jackie Marbs September 19, 2012 at 06:56 PM
Yeah - they shouldn't cast a guy that's gay..... even if he's hot like Matt Bomer (which I'm very disappointed... I did not know he was gay!!)... It would ruin the fantasy knowing he was gay and still doing those scenes! Not believable!
zina mendez September 19, 2012 at 10:06 PM
ian is awesome and the best person for the part. What do you mean weird and snarky/ ru crazy??????
annabelle18.98 October 02, 2012 at 04:20 AM
how can anyone not see both actors (Matt B & Alexis B) fit the physical description of the main leads to a T!!!!!!! ... specially the BLUE innocent yet smart eyes and the GREY piercing, full of intent CEO eyes!! Hmmm..... NO DOUBT abt it!!! 100% Alexis B & Matt B alll the wayyyyy!!!!!!
Joanna October 03, 2012 at 02:54 AM
Ryan gosling and Ashley Greene(: Anybody but Emma Watson PLEASE lmao she's alright
Me October 08, 2012 at 05:19 AM
Ian and Rachel McAdams!!!!
Ann November 15, 2012 at 09:03 PM
Matt bomer and lucy hale, if you think different then you are dreaming of your fantasy not what the book actually describes! If not them then has to be unknowns!
leanne November 24, 2012 at 09:43 AM
I think Chris Hemsworth & Liam Hemsworth would be perfect for Christian & Elliot. They look far enough apart to pull off being adopted & r both extremely gorgeous. They would be perfect.
Pam Roberts November 29, 2012 at 03:41 PM
Ian Somerhalder
Kathy December 05, 2012 at 05:31 PM
Matt Bomer and Ashley Greene are meant to play the roles. Ashley is beautiful and Matt Bomer is GORGEOUS!!! Enough said
Martina December 25, 2012 at 10:16 PM
Matt Bomer, it doesn't matter if he's gay, he's superhot and perfect for the role!!!
Sandy January 24, 2013 at 10:34 PM
CHRIS PRATT is the perfect Christian Grey... He's hot, copper haired, tall(supposed to be very tall), little hair on his chest & showed a rocking hard body for Zero Dark 30...He's had to put on weight for another role...but I know he would be perfect

Who should be ana? I personally say Ana should be someone who is not perfect, but as she described to be. The person should be chosen so she can play the role as Ana immediately. Ana must be someone who can cause mistakes. Her life should be mixed with the book. To get someone like Ana's, is going to be difficult. I personally think the role of the person who should be Ana will take someone totally different than what already has been said and predicted. It should be Someone new and no one knows her, the followers and fans have to wonder who it is. All arise decisions whom Ana. Ana must be someone who is new to, but just as she is. She must be someone who doesn't know the things in grey's world, who never experience it before,who she discover the person who se wants to be with grey and can be. The role of Ana, it must not be just an act it must be real, she must be real, knowing its just like her life. Yes its hard to find the person perfect of ana, but she is some where . It can be someone already famous or someone complete opposite of famous. She should be someone who still doesn't know the feeling of grey's world. She must be someone innocent, someone who never experience this before until she met grey.

The perfect Christian is without a doubt Ian Somerhalder. Who cares about the fact that he's 27? You need someone who is going to fit that character to a T. Grey has a dark, dominant personality because of his tortured past. I believe that Ian is the only one who can portray that character to the fullest. I mean look at his character on Vampire Diaries - Dark, mysterious, sarcastic, and full of boyish charm. Who else but Ian Somerhalder? And as for Ana I feel like it should be Ashley Greene. She's a great actress and seems most likely to fit Ana Steele. Ana's character is innocent, stubborn but shy and self-willed. Greenes' character in Twilight was definitely stubborn at times- so its a great fit. Plus Ian and Ashley would look great together in this movie. Don't you agree?
