“50 Shades of Grey” fans are dying to know who will be cast as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the movie adaptation of the racy book series. Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev’s names have been mentioned for months, but would the real-life couple star in the film together? According to an Oct. 21 report by Hollywood News Daily, it’s a possibility.
Ian and Nina have both expressed interest in the “50 Shades of Grey” movie. However, it’s Somerhalder who’s been a favorite among all those rumored to be up for the film. Meanwhile, Dobrev recently admitted that if the director and script are right for her, she’d be interested.
Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev are already co-stars on the wildly popular CW television series, “Vampire Diaries,” which is a television adaptation of another famous book series. So, is “50 Shades of Grey” next for this real-life couple?
While both Ian and Nina may be up for the challenged, it isn’t likely that execs would cast the couple together, not only because they already co-star together on the popular “Vampire Diaries,” but because they are a real couple. Fans may have trouble seeing them as anything but themselves, or their television alter egos.
However, either Ian Somerhalder or Nina Dobrev’s chances of being cast solo are good. Both would make great additions to the “50 Shades of Grey” movie, and are fan favorites. Which actors would you like to see in the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele?
