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.

IAN SOMERHALDER AS CHRISTIAN GREY
IAN SOMERHALDER SHOULD PLAY CHRISTIAN GREY!!! HE IS WHO I IMAGINED CHRISTIAN TO BE LIKE!!!

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

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!!!

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

08/15/2012 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!!!

Whose Fault Is It Anyway?
Monica Lewinsky, one-half of the scandal that almost brought down the Clinton administration, spoke over the weekend at the Forbes Magazine 30 Under 30 Summit. As an introduction, she recapped the story of her affair with Bill Clinton. She was fresh out of college and "more than averagely romantic," as she tells it. "I fell in love with my boss – in a 22-year-old sort of way." When the story broke, "within 24 hours, I became a public figure." All thanks to the Internet and the Drudge Report. "I was patient zero," she said, "the first person to have their reputation completely destroyed worldwide via the Internet." The entire speech can be found below. It's about 25 minutes long - but interesting in a historical sort of way...

Lady Batman?
At first, it reads like one of those hoax articles. But then when you realize that the person they're writing about is Lady Gaga, it makes you go, "Hmmm..." The folks at ComicBook.com are reporting that Gaga boughtbought a Malibu mansion recently. One accessory unit that came with the $23 million price tag was what The New York Daily News is calling a "Batcave." Said Batcave can only be accessed by an underground tunnel, and it features a bowling alley, arcade games, a home theater and an 800-bottle wine cellar. If Gaga gets tired of it, she can always lease it out as a frat house.

Chestnuts Roasting Barista-Style
It's the most wonderful time for a new coffee. At least, that's what Starbucks would have you believe. Get ready for Chestnut Praline Latte. The perfect beverage to wash down those holiday meals, don't you think? It's Starbucks first holiday drink in five years, and industry experts think it's the chain's answer to the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Dunkin' Donuts. Starbucks told the folks at Fox News that their drink is "inspired by the time-honored holiday tradition of warm roasted chestnuts… with freshly steamed milk and flavors of caramelized chestnuts and spices." You can add whipped cream and praline sprinkles, if you wish. If you're salivating, grab a napkin or a bib. The drink won't be available nationwide until November 21.

About Face for Renee
Renee Zellweger caused a stir over the weekend when she showed up at a Hollywood function looking different. Yup. She doesn’t look the way she used to look, so that got some tongues wagging. Yesterday, Renee told PEOPLE magazine she’s glad that people think she looks different. “I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows," she told the magazine. She thinks the whole thing is silly, and good for her. “Perhaps I look different. Who doesn't as they get older?” And for the record, she’s starting to look a little bit like Glenn Close – which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Annoying Then, Annoying Now
Yes, I know, it's hard to believe, but Kim Kardashian was just about as annoying 20 years ago as she is now. Thanks to Entertainment Tonight, we all get to witness just how annoying, on the video they unearthed from ther eighth-grade graduation. "My name's Kim Kardashian, I'm the dopest on the ropest person in this class," she says on the video. "I'm dope on the rope, and you should learn my vocabulary." One of her classmates says, "Define 'dope,' Kim." And she responds, "Kim is dope." This is one of those times when jokes simply write themselves...

Bizarrely Funny
Shia Labeouf has had more than his share of troubles in the past several months. And now, Rob Cantor - a singer and songwriter - has penned a tune in tribute to Shia. Well, not really a tribute. More an extremely weird and bizarrely funny performance piece - featuring Rob, a couple of choruses, a troupe of dancers and what may be a partial philharmonic orchestra. Check it out - it's perfect for Halloween. And make sure you stay until the very end for an unexpected surprise.

Excuse Me, Sister, Like a What?
Sister Cristina, the Italian nun who won her nation's version of American Idol, has released a new single. It's a cover - well, sort of - of Madonna's 1984 hit song, "Like a Virgin." Yes, folks, a nun, singing "Like a Virgin." Sister Cristina said in an interview with an Italian newspaper that her idea to cover the song is not meant to be "provocative or scandalous." She says if you simply read the song's lyrics - and pay no attention to Madonna's interpretation - it's really a song about "love's ability to renew a person and rescue them from the past." I guess covering "Like a Prayer" would have been expected, huh?

The "Horror" of Modern Celebrity Culture
It's been 21 years since since legendary singer and songwriter Billy Joel has had a hit. And according to an interview in The New Yorker, that's been on purpose. He says he really dislikes the "horror of celebrity," and he's really uncomfortable with the demands it places on folks like him.  In fact, he said that all the scrutiny and second-guessing made him feel like "there was a proctoscope up my butt." Um, ouch! Seems like that would make it very difficult to sit down at a piano too.

The Super Scientific Way
Leave it to Ellen Degeneres to get into the sports prediction business. On her show yesterday, she brought in two representatives of the two teams involved in the World Series, the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals. Okay, truthfully, it was two guys in baseball pants and hats from the two teams - the wardrobe budget appears to have run out when it came to buying the guys jerseys. But no one in the audience seemed to mind. In fact, the super scientific predictor was to send the two guys into the audience - the predicted winner would be the dancer who collected the most money in his shorts. Yes. No need to read it again - it's what happened. So hang onto this to see how good Ellen's process is...

Do It or Get Off the Pot!
In a new interview with GQ magazine, film star Matthew McConaughey shared the romantic story of how he decided to marry his now-wife, Camila Alves. According to him, it took her grabbing the bull by the horns, and saying, "C’mon, Big Boy, Mr. Easygoing-We’ll- Get-to-It-When-We-Get-to-It. Either s**t or get off the pot." While Matthew didn't mention it in the interview, his wife will undoubtedly be releasing her new line of matrimonial greeting cards any time now - as soon as she gets off the pot.

Being Married to Dennis Rodman "The Worst"?
 In a recent appearance on Oprah Winfrey's Where Are They Now?, actress Carmen Electra opened up about her short marriage with the NBA's Dennis Rodman. Yes, the same guy who thinks he can solve the world's problems by playing basketball in North Korea was once married to Carmen. And as described by Carmen, it was "the worst." In her and his defense, she also said when it was good, it was "amazing." She says she remembers thinking, immediately after the wedding, "Oh God, what did we do? What did we just do?" Not a good start, no matter how you look at it...

Believe It? Or Not?
In Back to the Future II, Marty McFly made a quick escape on a Hoverboard - a floating skateboard that existed in the future. Remember the scene?   Well now, thanks to a company called ..., you can have a hoverboard all your own - for the miniscule setback price of $10,000. It's part of a Kickstarter project, trying to raise $250,000. If you'd like a working prototype, it's yours for $10K. A couple of things you need to know. The device can float only three centimeters off the ground, it cannot be steered, and it will only float over very special non-ferrous surfaces, like copper and aluminum. But it none of that bothers you and you have the cash burning a hole in your pocket, go for it!

You're Goin' Down!
Chelsea Handler is well-known for just letting fly whatever comes to mind. Some folks would suggest that her thoughts are often formed in her oral cavity instead of her cranium. The other night on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, she was working toward something when she asked Conan and his co-host, Andy Richter, whether they liked the ocean. Andy said he did - and Chelsea fumbled her way into an ill-defined and -conceived fat joke. Andy handled it perfectly, and his response put Chelsea in her place. Check it out.

He popped into The Tonight Show to chat with Jimmy Fallon about his legendary career - he's a member of both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, you know.

Then play it again, but mute the video, and tell me if this guy isn't looking a little bit like Sean Connery these days.

Slogans Can Hurt
Ellen Degeneres is all over the Red Bull class action lawsuit. You'll recall that the makers of the energy drink settled their case recently, offering a $13 million payout to consumers who may have been duped into believing that Red Bull gives you wings.

Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?
There's a company that sells giant stuffed plush versions of various microbial organisms - among them, the Ebola virus, which they call "the T. Rex of microbes." And guess what? With so much talk about Ebola these days - and by "talk," I mean "panic" - the entire stock of Ebola toys has sold out. That includes the small Ebola doll ($9.95), the gigantic Ebola doll ($29.95) and the Ebola Petri Dish ($14.95). Yup, that's exactly what we want our kids playing with these days, isn't it? The video below was made about three years ago - but check it out anyway.

Kooking with Kardashian?
Kris Jenner - aka Mama Kardashian - showed up on The Today Show yesterday, hawking her new kookbook. Because when you think of kuisine, your mind instantly goes to "Kardashian," am I right? In her defense, she says she's been feeding her khildren since she had Kourtney when Kris was just 22. "They give you a baby, you've gotta feed it." If that doesn't get her some sort of Mom of the Year award - well, it will just be a travesty.   Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Man on a Leash?
Jada Pinkett Smith showed up to audition for the role of Fish Mooney on Fox’s Gotham with a man on a leash. Her character is a shady club owner in Gotham who has relationships with a lot of underworld characters – and maybe a less than honorable relationship with some of Gotham’s finest as well. Last weekend, she told folks at the PaleyFest that she wanted to show the producers that she understood her character. So instead of talking about Fish Mooney, she decided to show them. She showed up in a short wig and a long flowing gown with a shirtless man on a leash. She says she went “method.” The dude on the leash went “canine,” I guess. She also has a strong presence on Twitter, keeping in touch with her fans by tweeting.   Happy #FishMooney Monday Gotham is off the hook 2night. One of my favorite episodes. I'll tweeting 2night at 8 pm EDT pic.twitter.com/JBw4EPeHBp — Jada Pinkett Smith (@jadapsmith) October 13, 2014

Breaking Bad Action
A mom in Florida has started a petition to get the Toys ‘R’ Us chain to take Breaking Bad action figures off their shelves. The mom doesn’t like the message that the figures send, saying that kids mimic what their action figures do. The Walter White doll, for instance, comes complete with bags of cash and methamphetamine. The mom admits that she liked the series – even found it riveting – but she wants the figures out of Toys ‘R’ Us Bryan Cranston, who played Walter in the series, had an interesting take on the whole thing, with a fun tweet yesterday.   "Florida mom petitions against Toys 'R Us over Breaking Bad action figures."

Something's Amiss in the Sullivan Theater
Bill Mendez, a long-time cue card guy on The Late Show with David Letterman, lost his job recently. According to the reports, he got into an argument with one of the show's writers over the cue cards. The fight allegedly ended with Mendez grabbing the writer by the front of his shirt and pinning him to a nearby wll. So that's it - the cue card man has been fired. If you've got cue card experience and don't mind a short-term position, be sure to send in your application. Letterman is retiring in April. Maybe it would be better to apply with Stephen Colbert...

She Ain't Heavy, She Also Ain't My Brother
The head of the Russian Tennis Federation has been fined $25,000 for referring to Venus and Serena Williams as “the Williams brothers.”   He’s also been suspended for a year after his comments on a talk show on Russian TV.   Funny how the world works.   This guy’s got to pay a hefty fine and lose his job for a bit for saying that same things that earn guys like Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien and Jon Stewart millions.

It's Not Shoplifting - It's Scoring an Endorsement!
Last week, Joseph Randle, a running back for the Dallas Cowboys, was arrested for shoplifting at Dallas-area mall. He allegedly walked off with underwear and cologne. He's facing legal action, and the NFL hit him with a fine of $29,500. Not to worry. A marketing company in Los Angeles just signed Randel to a contract to help them market underwear. The company - MeUndies - will pay Sticky Fingers at least enough to cover the fine from the league. I guess there will be a separate cologne deal to cover the court costs. Yeah, this is a great example for kids everywhere.

Now That's a Good Start
If you're a Game of Thrones fan, you undoubtedly remember Khal Drogo, the Dothraki war lord who dominates and is then dominated by Daenerys Targaryen. He was about as intense as they come - dark, brooding, completely the opposite of Daenerys. Until his appearances on GOT as Drogo, Jason Momoa was a relative unknown. Now, thanks to GOT, he's getting all sorts of opportunities - not the least of which is he recent casting as Aquaman in an upcoming DC Comics film. His GOT audition tape has been making the rounds lately. He landed the role after performing a fierce Maori dance. After watching the tape, I can't imagine ANYONE saying no to this guy. Ever.

Egg on Your Faces!
So again, the folks at The Tonight Show sat around a production meeting, and came up with a game plan. "Let's have Jimmy and a guest play Russian Rouelette, but with eggs! So, they grabbed a carton of eggs. Hardboiled eight, left four raw. The idea: Jimmy and his guest will smash those eggs against their own foreheads until someone has smashed two raw eggs. But who to get? "I know! Let's get Bradley Cooper! He'll do it!" And they did. And he did. And it's done. And it's hilarious. Check it out!
