English actor Henry Cavill, known in America for Showtime's The Tudors, is one of the strongest contenders on the race to play Christian Grey in the upcoming film version of E.L. James' popular novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
Cavill, who will be starring in next year's Christopher Nolan-produced Man of Steel (the new installment of Superman), is facing competition from Magic Mike's Matt Bomer, The Notebook's Ryan Gosling and True Blood's Aleksander Skarsgard.
However, Cavill has the advantage that he is the prototype for the Christian Grey character, as demonstrated by his 2008 London Dunhill commercial. And, so fans start having an idea of how Cavill would look (and sound) like Grey, here are 13 Grey quotes as recited by Henry Cavill:
1. “I do believe you’re making my palm twitch.”
2. “I lay awake for hours and watched you sleep … I might have loved you even then.”
3. “I don’t know whether to worship at your feet or…”
4. “Every time you move tomorrow, I want you to be reminded that I’ve been here.”
5. “I want you and the thought of anyone else having you is like a knife twisting my soul.”
6. “I want you sore, baby”
7. “Stop biting those lips.”
8. “You are just not a pretty face.”
9. “Let me ask you something, do you want regular vanilla?”
10, “I'd like to bite that lip.”
11. "It’s about gaining your trust and your respect, so you’ll let me exert my will over you.”
12. “I've never had vanilla sex before."
13. "I want to make your dreams come true."
