The Sons Of Anarchy star was confirmed over the weekend “Fifty Shades Of grey Fan Club” departure from the movie and role as Christian grey.
The initial comments from the fifty shades team was that his intensive schedule was behind his departure.

Has Breakup between Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev hurt their chances at Fifty Shades of Grey?


Ever since the Fifty Shades of Grey books have been picked up for the movie version, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev have been some of the top picks to play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. The pairing has been extra juicy since The Vampire Diaries stars were a couple in real life, but has their recent breakup meant they’re off the hot spot?

The producers and the movie studios might have been tight-lipped as Fort Knox on the subject of casting, but that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating on the casting of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, and one of the most popular castings has been that of Nina and Ian, who have topped the lists as the favorites for months.

Ian Somerhalder in Fifty shades of grey

It looked likely that it could have actually happened, but ever since the pair have finally broken up officially, what will this mean in the context of the Fifty Shades casting?

Ian Somerhalder is the number one choice for Grey, and rumor has it the Louisiana born actor has actually met up with E.L. James and the movie’s producers Dana Brunetti and Matt De Lucca, but again, with all the rumors going round about the movie’s casting who are we to believe?


Nina and Ian would have had some hot chemistry, and it would have been convincing to get them together on the project as a couple, however, professionalism or not, working together on Fifty Shades as ex-boyfriend and girlfriend would just be awkward for the pair.

It looks like their break up is going to affect more than just their Fifty Shades chances, it might even damage their working relationship on The Vampire Diaries  – this is why people say you shouldn’t date people you work with.


If it comes down to a choice of one or the other, our money is on Ian Somerhalder getting picked over Nina Dobrev. While Nina has been a popular choice for Anastasia, she’s still behind others like Emilia Clarke or Alexis Bledel, whereas Ian Somerhalder has picked up a cult following who are dying to see him as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. It’s really a no brainer who’ll be picked if we’re left with an ultimatum.

What do you think? Who would you rather see in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie? Ian Somerhalder or Nina Dobrev?


Jensen Ackles as Christian Grey

Jensen Ackles

Fans have been going crazy over casting speculations over who will be cast as Christian grey In Fifty Shades of Grey Movie. Jensen joins the growing list which include Ian Somerhalder,Matt Bomer and Henry Cavill as the leading contenders for the role

“Yet he seems to truly personify Christian Grey,” said the Examiner, “Jensen Ackles may not be a part of the Christian Grey world, but he has many other traits that make him perfect for the role. Jensen has a quiet confidence and the charisma to charm any woman. As seen in interviews, he also has the presence needed to play the very wealthy Grey Enterprise Holding’s CEO. Christian Grey is a skilled, yet modest, pianist and singer. There are many scenes from the book where Ana Steele finds Christian playing the piano alone. She is in awe of his abilities and grows a deeper love for the complex man,” continues the Examiner, “Jensen Ackles is known for being a talented singer and guitar player, often taking the stage for jam sessions. While on the series ‘Dark Angel’, Jensen also played a Chopin piece on the piano.”


The examiner makes a good case for Jensen Ackles as Christian Grey, but does he have what it takes to knock Ian Somerhalder off the top spot to grab the whip-wielding crowing spot of Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of E.L. James’s famous books. A lot could still happen between now and the official casting, so perhaps Jensen could gain popularity, or maybe another unknown talent could steal the top spot for Christian Grey. Hopefully Universal will put all of us out of our miseries soon!
