50 Shades of Grey Movie Cast: Ryan Gosling and the 25 Flavors of Christian Grey


Speculation over who would play the role of sexually dominant business tycoon Christian Grey in the upcoming film version of E.L. James’ erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey continues to mount, with the latest controversy surrounding wanna-be screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho) throwing fellow gay male Matt Bomer (White CollarMagic Mike) under the bus – as supposedly incapable of playing womanizer Christian Grey due to his “gayness.”  

And author E.L. James, and confirmed producers Dana Brunetti and Michael De Luca, have also weighed in, with James expressing her disapproval of Twilight emo hunk – and heartbroken heartthrob – Robert Pattinson as potential cast (even though Fifty Shades was inspired in a Twilight fan fiction).

Meanwhile, Brunetti and De Luca insisted the role of Christian Grey is still up for grabs, as it is too early to think about potential casts when neither the director nor the writer have been hired yet. So, in order to continue with the speculative spirit – and to highlight the diversity that some of the potential casts could bring to Fifty Shades’ film adaptation – here are Ryan Gosling and the 25 flavors of Christian Grey:
