For those who have read the book...

If there's a film, who should play him?

I'm mid-way through the second book. They're utter drivel, but I know I'll read them all

My personal choice for Grey would be Matt Bomer. It's who I picture when reading, although Henry Cavill would be up there too. they have a similar sort of look.

As for Ana, I would probably champion Lucy Hale, Felicity Jones or Emilia Clarke.

Agreed, but strangely addictive drivel, I read the first book then had to buy the other 2 to find out what happens.

Matt Bomer is a good choice, as is another name being bandied around....Ian Somerhalder....

Yeah, I'm not sure about Ian Somerhalder. There's something about his mouth I don't like (because obviously I'm such a vision of beauty myself )

Ron Jeremy. He's the only man with enough experience.

Paul Merton. You'll need someone who is expert at keeping a straight face to perform the dialogue.

Or Gilbert Gottfried.. (warning! NSFW language)

I've only read 40 pages so far but I'm intrigued by him and have heard things about what happens.

Matt Bomer is my new find in the acting word Loved him in Glee and he's in Magic Mike

I bought the trilogy and finding it hard getting past the first chapter, but will probably get into it TBH, Michael Fassbender would be perfect as we know he has the credentials

I haven't begun the books just yet but maybe an unknown
The film will be a big hit and immediately make that an unknown a huge star anyway

It will be someone unknown - I don't think anyone famous will want to be associated with such drivel

Indeed, but as i stated above strangely addictive drivel....well it was for me anyway.....another name is Henry Cavill.....heard of him, googled him and not bad !

But i think you are right VoodooChic, it will be someone relatively unknown..

Matthew McConahughey as Christian Grey and Mila Kunis would be good.

was just thinking him too. He is the goto guy for leaning on things with no shirt on that casting directors think makes women moist.

Mr Grey is a scary stalker a-hole. Who's good at playing those?

In the book, he's under 30...which made me automatically think that there aren't many high-profile stars between 25-35 are there? Zac Efron (24) is the only guy I could think of and he's too young to play Christian.

It was on the radio news yesterday that University people have done an e-fit of what this guy is suppose to look like from the image some women have built up in their heads - I will find the link and see if he looks like any actors.

Here you go don't know who he looks like though.
