This is a rumor I can get behind!! Today the internet is abuzz with the rumor that Ryan Gosling is in the lead to play Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of the amazingly-super-selling-book ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’!
Where did the rumor start? With the author’s own husband! E.L. James‘ husband said that “last he heard” Ryan Gosling was the main choice to play the leading man and BDSM expert Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of the bestselling novel.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” movie casting rumors have been swirling since Universal Pictures and Focus Features purchased the rights to the to the novels in March for $5 million. Now, the juiciest tidbit comes from none other than “Fifty Shades” author James’ husband, Niall Leonard.
The United Kingdom’s Now magazine reportedly spoke with Leonard, who said that Gosling may very well play the hunky Grey:
The husband of Fifty Shades Of Grey author EL James has dropped a strong hint that Ryan Goslingwill take the lead role of Christian Grey in the film adaptation of the erotic novel.Niall Leonard says that ‘last he heard’ Ryan, 31, was in the frame to play the manipulative billionaire…
I really hope Ryan does sign on. If he signs on, there’s a good chance the movie won’t suck as badly as the books did!
Do you think that 31-year-old Gosling could pull it off? I think he would be great! He could pull it off, completely. I think he’s one of the few actors who could play a character like that. As far as I’m concerned, he’s the best actor they’ve talked about yet!
