EL James' Husband Claims Ryan Gosling is in Talks to Star in 50 Shades of Grey
09.06.12 by Chris
Ryan Gosling is already a sex icon, but the actor's appeal could increase if rumors are true that he's being considered to play Christian Grey in the highly anticipated movie adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey.
Niall Leonard, husband of EL James, told U.K.'s Now magazine that Gosling was in the running for the part. According to the outlet, Leonard said that "last he heard" Ryan was in the picture to play the manipulative billionaire.
Though the adaptation is in the works, no casting has been announced. It seems unlikely Ryan would sign up to star in the movie version of "mommy porn." Lately, Ryan has been on a film noir kick (Drive, Gangster Squad). But Ryan also likes to take on surprising roles (Lars and the Real Girl, Half Nelson).
So what do you think of Gosling playing the sadistic Christian Grey? We have a feeling that fans would be more than happy to see him in the part.
