Fifty
I hope not!! Armie Hammer Should Play Chriastain Grey! He's tall, young, and Hot!! Ian is too scrawny!!
04/29/2012 7:56AM
Another consideration
Benedict Cumberbatch should be considered. He has the hair, the eyes, the height, the body and the demeanor.
04/29/2012 11:25AM
IAN SOMERHALDER AS CHRISTIAN GREY
IAN SOMERHALDER SHOULD PLAY CHRISTIAN GREY!!! HE IS WHO I IMAGINED CHRISTIAN TO BE LIKE!!!
04/29/2012 12:33PM

Ian Somerhalder should most definately play Christian Grey!!! He is so HOTT!!!

Christian Grey
NOOOOOO! I love Ian Somerholder but he is not beautiful enough to play Christian!!!! I hope they do better than that. I didn't think I would but I like Christian Bale.....
04/30/2012 11:30AM
Ian is Christian Grey
Not only the looks and the SMOLDERING stare. He can pull his the character off. Christian is troubled and so is Damon on TVD. If anyone can do this I believe firmly in Mr. Ian Somerhalder!! He has my vote! If they choose someone else to play him I may not watch it.
04/30/2012 2:51PM
nope
i dont think he should play christian, he is not what i picture when reading the book. I totally picture armie hammer playing him.... totally!
05/01/2012 6:25PM

I think Alexander Skarsgard should play Christian Grey!!!! MMM... Yes please :)
05/04/2012 2:35PM
Christian Grey
Ladies i have two words: GABRIEL MACHT. He is sexy and would play the role PERFECTLY. Check him out on the USA show Suits. He pretty much plays the role now. Trust me, he's the one!

He's Hot and he's got the looks, height , dazzling EYES , hair, seriousness and not to forget CHARM on ladies. seriously he should be the one to given that role without doubt.. Am reading the book and what picture appearing to my brain of christian grey is IAN SOMERHALDER

07/23/2012 7:50PM
Gabriel MACHT
Harvery Specter from the show Suits... he's perfect!!
07/30/2012 6:46PM
Gabriel Macht as Christian Grey
Gabriel Macht has what no other actor has, class! He fits the billion dollar profile as Christian Grey. Gabriel Macht pulls off a charismatic suave that comes naturally! In his role on Suits as Harvey Spector, Gabriel Macht is charming, classy, gorgeous and just darn right naughty! If he doesn't land the role as Christian Grey, I will not watch 50 shades!
07/30/2012 7:04PM
Gabriel Macht
Macht! Macht! Macht! Gabriel Macht is the man for 50 shades, he is Christian Grey hands down!!! He has the look, charm, pazzas and flare of a seductive businessman. No questions asked!!!
07/30/2012 7:14PM
Gabriel Macht
When you send in a man to the job, you send in Gabriel Macht to be Christian Grey not Ian the boy!!!
08/03/2012 11:46PM
Gabriel Macht
After reading the books, I think that Gabriel Macht would be perfect. After watching him in the show "Suits" I think his personality matches that of Christian Grey!!
08/04/2012 10:54AM
Gabriel Macht
I just googled "gabriel macht to play christian grey" as I wanted to know if anyone else feels what I feel after reading the first chapter.... It cannot be anyone other than Harvey Spector. The part where she says she cannot keep her eyes offof his mouth..... That is the exact feeling when you see Gabriel, he has the most gorgeous mouth! I too agree, I will not watch this movie if its not him because it will forever ruin what's happend in my fantasy hahaha
08/07/2012 7:02PM
Gabriel Macht is Christian Grey
Gabriel Macht is the ONLY option for Christian Grey! He is Grey.
08/09/2012 11:13PM
Gabriel Macht
I'm so happy I'm not alone in thinking Gabriel Macht is perfect for the role. He's everything I'd imagined Christian Grey to be. He is perfect!!
08/15/2012 3:57PM
Gabriel Macht for Christian Grey
Selecting the right person to play christian grey will make or break this film. As soon as i started reading the book, Gabriel Macht sprung to mind. He would be absolutely perfect. Maybe slightly older but the character needs some maturity to pull off the role. He is hot in Suits.
08/15/2012 4:51PM
Gabriel for Grey
Anyone who has seen a minute of Harvey Specter on Suits knows that Gabriel Macht is the only choice for Christian Grey!
08/15/2012 5:07PM
I Gotta Go With Gabriel!!!
Gabriel Macht as Harvey Specter is Christian Grey!!! I seriously can't imagine anyone else playing the role. Everytime I watch Suits I end up putting his character in the book. It's gotta be Gabriel!!!
08/18/2012 12:52AM
Gabriel Macht!!!
Gabriel is PERFECT for the role of Christian Grey!!! I am sooo glad I am not alone in this!! They may actually cast him! And better or it will seriously ruin the movies, as was said above, DOOO IT Cast him as Christian Grey casting people!!! Please dont f this up!

09/15/2012 12:43PM

We should start a campaign to the filmakers to get him cast! If they think hes too old to play the part then Jensen ackles is a good second choice.
10/03/2012 3:31PM
Gabriel Macht
Gabriel Macht would make a perfect Christian Grey! Hope he is the one picked for this role.

I Really Really Really Really Really Really Want This!
Dear Santa: I know this is probably an impractical present, and that it will probably only survive one light dusting. But Santa, I really really really really really really really want one of these. A remote-control pickup with a snow plow attachment. I've been really really really really good this year too.                                                                                                          Signed,                                                                                                          Your Pal Mikey!     (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Boji.

Cancel The Interview, Please
Sony Pictures announced formally today that it will not now and maybe ever release the movie they'd scheduled for a Christmas debut, The Interview. The film, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco as some newsmen recruited by the CIA to assassinate the leader of North Korea, drew the ire of North Korea's current ruler, who said its release would be considered an act of war. More recently, someone hacked into Sony's servers, releasing sensitive information and threatening some drastic action if the film were released as planned. Some interesting folks are not happy at all. Like Donald Trump... #TrumpVlog #TheInterviewMovie A sad day for freedom of speech- http://t.co/eQDh4BkDHp — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 17, 2014 And Salman Rushdie... “@FinalFenwayFict: Anyone remember @SalmanRushdie? Art is supposed 2 provoke. #TheInterviewMovie” Yeah, I remember him. And: agreed. — Salman Rushdie (@SalmanRushdie) December 17, 2014 But, here's the question that everyone wants answered... Whens Dennis Rodman going to intercede and squash this whole thing? #TheInterviewMovie — Jacob Saylor (@jacobsaylor) December 18, 2014

A Box of Poo for You
You know Cards Against Humanity, right? The makers refer to it as "a party game for horrible people" that's "as despicable and awkward as you and your friends." On Black Friday, they made an interesting offer to folks on their website: a box of male bovine excrement for a mere $6. They used a more guttural expression that we really shouldn't be using here... Now, the folks at CAH report that they sold 30,000 units. 30,000 units of genuine bull crap, amounting to $180,000. I can only imagine how popular these will be at the office Yankee Swap this year. Now if you'll excuse me. My dog just went outside, and I'm pretty sure there's a gold mine waiting to be picked up on my lawn.

Shaking Off Hanukkah
Someone pointed out recently that there aren't any good Hanukkah songs out there. It seems that the only choice is Adam Sandler's "Hanukkah Song," and that's not really about the holiday, just about folks who might celebrate it. So along comes Six13, a Jewish a cappella group, and their parody of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off." You'll have fun, learn a little bit about the holiday, and even how to play with a dreidel. And you might start bopping along with the tune. Win win!

Happy Holidays: The Christmas Spirit
Not everyone's ready for the holiday, right? Seems like it rushes up on you sometimes. Or maybe you're just not ready for it. Sometimes, you need a little push. Like Chris, who gets a visit and a sizeable nudge from a Jolly Old Elf. A fun short film to get you in the spirit...

Happy Birthday, Frankie
Pope Francis celebrated his birthday yesterday. Some folks took to Twitter to pass glad tidings, using #happybirthdayholyfather. It looks like being the pope doesn't put you above the typical birthday pranks the rest of us have to endure, like sharing photos from your early years. This one looks to be from 8th grade. What do you think?   Happy birthday Pope Francis! @Pontifex #happybirthdayholyfather pic.twitter.com/67KWJIFDJT — The Catholic Hipster (@churchhipster) December 17, 2013 Meanwhile, the pope celebrated his birthday the way you'd expect this down-to-earth guy to do it. He invited some homeless men and his household staff to sit and have breakfast with him after morning mass.   Pope Francis shared his birthday breakfast with homeless men and a dog. http://t.co/h93FMUumkG #HappyBirthdayHolyFather — Whats Up Mimi (@WhatsupMimi) December 18, 2013

Ellen Skunks Conan
Looks like the daytime talk shows have better budgets than their nighttime counterparts. Case in point: an audience member pointed out that Ellen Degeneres gives away phenomenal gifts to everyone in her audience. It's the way she rolls. Amazing things like personal cappucino machines, one's very own MRI unit (complete with Fabio, your MRI tech), and the not-even-out-yet iPhone 9. Conan had nothing but half-a-sleeve of gluten-free Fig Newtons in his car. Not to fear. Ellen to the rescue. Check out what she gives to every member of Conan's audience. I wonder if Conan gets to keep one...?

New Rule: Don't Let Mom Call Into Your Talk Show Appearance
How's this for a fun time? Brad and Dallas Woodhouse are what you'd call political pundits. They're also what you'd call brothers. Brad's a Democrat, and Dallas is a Republican. This week, they appeared on Washington Journal on C-Span to discuss their new book, "Woodhouse Divided," about bipartisanship and the political divide in the United States. I'm sure it was a fun conversation, but not one that would catch my attention. Until... ... the Woodhouse brothers' mother called in, unexpectedly and unplanned, and pretty much told the both of them to settle their differences so that Christmas at the family home would be peaceful. The clip is below, and it is priceless!

Seal It With a Slap!
Whoever thought Jimmy Fallon and Oprah Winfrey could play a married couple? Well they did - back in the 80s - on a soap opera called Midnight Meadows. It's becoming a running bit on The Tonight Show, and it involves Jimmy and his guest running back and forth into and out of the scenes. You almost wish they'd show those transitions. From the sound of the audience reaction, that's one of the best parts.

Can I Get a Translator, Please?
Christian Bale's newest film, Exodus: Gods & Kings, hasn't even been out for two weeks, and already, folks are talking about his next film. The trailer for Knight of Cups was released this week, and while the film's language is English - I understand all the words - I think I'm going to have to have an interpreter with me if I plan to sit and watch it. It's not that anyone's unintelligible - there's no Stallone/Schwarzenegger component to the movie - it's just that I have no idea what's going on. Sure, trailers are supposed to tease you and even titillate you, so you'll be interested in seeing the movie. This one looks like a bad acid trip caught on film. What do you think?

Emojinized Science

In this day and age, what better way to illustrate one's point - or, in this case, lesson - that with emoji. Everyone knows what emoji are - so why not put them to good use. So watch Professor Nye do Professor Darwin one better by using emoji to explain evolution. I'll bet you have a Smiley Face when it's done...

Blistering Hot Britney
According to Women's Health magazine, Britney Spears is in "the hottest shape of her life." That's why they put her on the cover of the magazine. And according to them, she did it all without a trainer. They point to her "insane abs" and suggest that you too can achieve them with "one simple move." I hate to be a cynic, but I'll bet it's the purchase of pretty good photo-editing software. Does that make me a bad person...?   Thank you so much @womenshealthmag for featuring me in your new issue! 😘 It's on stands this week!

Christmas Services - Saturday Night Live-Style
I've been picking on Saturday Night Live a lot this season. It's like the whole show isn't living up to the standards set in the past. Sure, there's a lot of history in the show, and some phenomenal years when everything they touched was gold. This year, not so much. So, when they do crank out something that's pretty good, it's only fair to point it out. Here's a little something they did this weekend, and it hits home with a lot of casual Christians, You know, the kind who only go to church twice a year - once at Easter, and once at Christmas. Enjoy!

Barbara Walters' Most Fascinating Person of 2014
Prepare to scratch your heads. A woman you probably never heard of until September or so - Amal Alamuddin Clooney - has been named the Most Fascinating Person of 2014. Not that she's not interesting. But the most fascinating person on the planet? All because she married George Clooney. Which Barbara Walters refers to, with her gift for hyperbole, as one of the "greatest achievements in human history." Perhaps it's time for Barbara to hang up her microphone, huh?

Adorable Holiday Tearjerker?
This new ad by Apple has been getting a lot of play since it was released on Sunday. Over a million-and-a-half hits as I write this. It highlights the ability of Apple products - a Mac, an iPhone or an iPad - to "create thoughtful, emotional gifts and memories that transcend time." It's a granddaughter using computing power to create a duet with her grandmother's voice-over 45 rpm recording. Tearjerker? I'm not feeling it. Does that make me Grinchy? Honestly, I was more excited that the granddaughter had a turntable than anything else.

Yup, It's Genetic
Ever wonder where the Kardashian and Jenner kids get their flair for showoffmanship? Blame it all on Mama K. Proof positive is available for viewing on the website of Love magazine. They present an annual Advent calendar (completely missing the point that Advent is a particulary religious thing) that features 25 models doing strange things that have nothing to do with Christmas. Most of them - so far - are pretty young. Then there's Kris Jenner. Pushing 60. Dressing and acting like her 30-something kids, including flashing her cleavage to the camera, grabbing her lapels with the veiniest hands this side of the Cryptkeeper. Watch the video - if you dare. Be careful, though. The lyrics to the song that goes with the video are definitely NSFW.

The Sun May Not Come Out Tomorrow After All
The updated version of Annie hit theaters this past weekend, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, it's a hard knock watch. Starring Jamie Foxx as the billionaire and Quvenzhane Wallis as the little orphan, the new Annie was pretty much eviscerated: This one paragraph says it all: "Putting aside the grating performances, the clumsy direction, the visual ugliness and the haphazard development of story, character and relationships, the movie is hobbled by its intrinsic unsuitability for contemporary retelling." Of course, you never know with movies like this. Critics can often cripple a film - or just because of their shear nastiness, encourage people to go and check it out for themselves. So what do you think? Is it worth popping for $12 a ticket, plus the investment in the soda and popcorn and candy, to make your own determination?

Taylor Swift - Most Parodied Artist of 2014?
What's Up Moms is a website "dedicated to providing fast-paced videos that are not only helpful, but also fun to watch!" Every once in a while, they'll produce a good parody of pop song. Like this one - their parody, all mom-related, of Taylor Swift's "Blank Spaces." Which could very make make Taylor the most-parodied musical artist of 2014. We'll have to wait for the official tally, of course.

On the Scale of One to Weird, This One Is...
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have reunited on-screen - well, sort of - with the trailer for the fake movie, Moon Quake Lake, that appears in the new Annie film. Mila plays a girl from the moon who has to go home every night. Ashton plays the human who falls in love with her. Together, they try to stay together. On Earth. An awful lot of plot for a 38-second trailer, but here you go... Tell me where you think it falls on the Weird Scale.

Happy Holidays: A Capella Magic

Slapjack with Mark Wahlberg
Picture the scene in the writer's room at The Tonight Show. "Hey, you know what would be wicked cool? Getting Jimmy to play blackjack with someone, but whoever wins gets to hit the other guy with a giant prosthethic hand." "Yeah, that would be amazing. But who could we get?" "I know, Mark Wahlberg. He's got that movie called The Gambler coming out. He'll do it!" And guess what? He did. And guess what else? It's hilarious. Check it out. And count how often Mark's often-hidden Boston accent comes out.

Happy Holidays: Traffic Stops End Magically
Getting pulled over by a cop is usually not the best way to start your day. In the small town of Lowell, Michigan - about 20 miles outside of Grand Rapids - the police department decided to turn things around for the holidays. During routine minor stops, the officers would ask motorists what they needed for Christmas. And while the motorists waited on the side of the road for their expected tickets, special elves were in a nearby store, grabbing up the items the motorist had mentioned to the cop, allowing the cop to play Santa to the motorist. And no, no tickets were written. One cop did, however, offer to write one if the motorist insisted. Watch the video. This will make you feel good.   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Good Morning America.
