50 Shades of Grey Movie: Emma Watson, Ryan Gosling, and 24 Ideal Cast Members


The upcoming movie version of E. L. James’s spicy sex novel 50 Shades of Grey is already in the works by The Social Network producers Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti. The movie is already rumored to be putting together a dream team cast and crew, with the likes of Angelina Jolie as the potential director and legendary Brett Easton-Ellis (American Psycho) as the writer.

There has been a great deal of speculation as to who the producers should cast for the main roles of Christian Grey, the young and sadist business magnate, and Anastasia Steel, the college graduate who falls irreversibly for Grey’s fifty shades of sexual practices.

Most armchair casting experts have already picked Ryan Gosling, 31, Vampire Diaries Ian Somerhalder, 31, or the new Superman, Henry Cavill, 29, to portray Christian Grey in the film.

As for Anastasia, the books describe as an innocent 21-year-old college student: “a pale, brown haired girl with blue eyes too big for her face.” The trick to casting Ana is finding an actress with not only the right look but the innocence for the character, and the acting chops to keep up with Christian Grey. 

Playing the guessing game could not be more fun, as nearly all of Hollywood's hottest stars have the required sex appeal and more. Below are the 24 couples we would love to watch playing Christian Grey and Anastasia Steel:
