The role of a lifetime? or career poison? Who knows what lies ahead for the actor who lands the movie role of the kinky billionaire in the screen adaptation of E.L. James' bestselling trilogy which has sold 70 million copies worldwide.

Universal Pictures announced that Charlie Hunnam, the actor who had originally been set to play the lead, was dropping out of the adult romance and would not be taking on the role. 

So now that the search is back on, what actor do you think would make the ideal Christian Grey?

  • Wes Bentley?
  • Ian Somerhalder?
  • Garrett Hedlund?
  • Leonardo DiCaprio?
  • Matt Bomer?
  • Luke Bracey?
  • Christian Cooke?
  • Billy Magnussen?
  • Alexander Skarsgard?
  • Francois Arnaud?
  • Scott Eastwood?
  • Colin Egglesfield?
  • Henry Cavill?
  • Joseph Morgan?
  • Eric Winter?
  • Jamie Dornan?

    I've never heard of most of these guys, but looking at their pictures I found online, I'd say either Colin Egglesfield or Henry Cavill. The only thing is, to make them look like I pictured Christian Grey when I read the books, he'll have to be clean shaven and have somewhat longer-on-top copper-colored hair.

    Ian Somerhalder is perfect for the part!!! Matt Bomer would be my second choice (in fact, for the few chapters I read, he was who I pictured). Then Leonardo DiCaprio or Henry Cavill.
