FIFTY SHADES OF GREY Casting Rumors, Chris Hemsworth and Katie Cassidy?
Fifty Shades of Grey, casting fever, continues to blaze through Hollywood. Every actor under 35, is dying to play Christian, with fans hoping that Ian Somerhalder will be cast as the sexy billionaire. A new hopeful has been added to the mix, who is he? Here are the latest Fifty Shades casting rumors.
Currently, the word in Hollywood is, Chris Hemsworth, is the front runner to play Christian Grey. Of course, that hasn’t stopped other actor hopefuls to express interest.
“Extra’s” Mario Lopez caught up with Latino heartthrob, William Levy, who’s also read the book. “I like the book, actually,” he said. “I think all guys should be like that.” Does Levy has what it takes to play Christian or is he too old? Well, after his stint on Dancing With the Stars, he definitely has ALL the right moves.
The book, Fifty Shades of Grey, tells the story of 22-year-old recent college grad, Anastasia Steele. She enters into a dominant/submissive sexual relationship with 27-year-old sexy billionaire Christian Grey, through an “agreement,” and both explore the world of BDSM (bondage, dominance, submission, masochism).
The trilogy, which has sold over 25 million books worldwide, is guaranteed to be a blockbuster. When it comes to casting, E.L. James, thinks that Ryan Gosling should portray the naughty bad boy.
For Anastasia, who’s described as “‘a pale, brown-haired girl with blue eyes too big for her face.’ She’s clumsy and awkward but very beautiful. What actress in Hollywood does that describe? If Astrochicks had to choose, we would pick Katie Cassidy.
Astrologically speaking, chemistry is key for Fifty Shades of Grey. We think Christian, most likely, would be a Scorpio or Aquarius. Our vote is for Chris Hemsworth, he has the star power, and sex appeal to make the screen sizzle. For Anastasia, the jury is still out. Stay tuned.
