The 50 Shades of Grey movie casting rumors recently got supercharged when Superman Henry Cavill commented on the possibility of playing Christian Grey. However, fans of E. L. James’ erotic novel probably won’t get to see Anastasia Steele being spanked by the Man of Steel star.
According to a Nov. 30 report by Entertainmentwise, Henry Cavill’s reps have already denied that he’s in talks for the role.
So, what do you think?
November 30 2012 Rumors
Good call, Henry. Good call.
I”ve read the books, Henry would be perfect in the role of Christian Grey for so many reasons!! I have seen him in so many shows, movies and interviews that bring him to mind as I read the books, He is beautiful, elegant, sophisticated, SEXY and did I say beautiful. and he works really hard to bring his character of the person he plays to life, he’s magical.
PS…..love you Henry!!!
Henry shouldn’t take this role, it’s below him.
Really bad. He is the only Mr. Grey I can imagine. I’ve heard about Matt Bommer but with all respect, even if he has the appearance, Christian Grey is not a role for a gay guy. I have nothing again gays, not even close, but no way. So Henry is the perfect one. Just watch the Dunhill comercials, he is the one!. I hope he reconsider his decision. First of all that movie will be a total success which means he’ll become much more famous than now and will have a great opportunity to show everyone that he is capable to do this role without falling into a porno style movie. I think it is a challenge he can handle.
Desejo ardentemente que Henry seja Christian Grey, só ele pode fazer o personagem.
I don’t know what to make out of this…I’ve read 50 shades…and I must see the only man out there that can play this role is Henry..first of all Dunhill ads, total CG material, and he’s so handsome , educated, and well poised..I can see how he can be sexy as hell, in love..and dark and dangerous at the same time..
But in the other hand, If this roll means that he will not be able to do roles like Bond (it was between him and Daniel Craig when Casino Royal was being filmed) I think he should pass on playing Grey.
I think he has the potential to be Hollywood’s next big thing
Riley, I have the same feeling! Would be great to have Henry as CG, he’s a sexy thing and such, but I really hate when people mention him as if he was only a great body and nothing else. I hate when people only remember to mention him on Tudors S1 and forget the whole work he did in the rest of it, specially on last season. So, yeah, CG would make this kind of comments an usual thing and I would hate it.
Henry is a good actor and he should not play in that erotic messy minded role.So glad to hear that Henry denied it. Fiuuh~
I never knew Henry Cavill when I read 50 Shades of Grey. I always had an image but never could put the pieces together. After I finished the books, it was hook, line and sinker when I found a Christian Grey Fan Page that supported Henry Cavill fans and other fans. As soon as I seen Henry, I knew HE was the one I had imagined in the 50 Shades books the whole time. I guess you can say, I fell head over heals, as soon as I knew who he was. After that, I watched “The Tudors”, “Immortals”, and recently “The Cold Light of Day” and I know if he plays the roll of CG, no one will be disappointed! Good job Henry, much love!
