@LizzieKing I agree. I also literally gasped when I saw his picture and shouted "That's him!" Hahah

I'm sorry but Ryan Gosling should not be picked! It's not fitting! It can't just be any good looking guy.

>Michelle Smith.....I completely agree that Gerard Butler could make the PERFECT for Christian Grey. He can have a smouldering look, a romantic look and a very severe look. Sounds great to me!

Alexander Skarsgard who plays Eric Northman of True Blood is my perfect Christian!! So amazingly sexy in the show.. also I think people are for getting that Grey is in his mid 20s a lot of people are suggesting actors in there 40s and 50s which although incredibly hot doesn't go with the story .
