Earlier this month, we posted about the newest craze in literature: 50 Shades of Grey. As a book nerd, I anxiously waited until finals were over to submit my Amazon order and have the entire trilogy shipped to my apartment.
Waiting, however, has caused my eyes to wander a bit. While I was able to hold off actually reading the book, reading all the hype about it couldn’t seem to escape me.
As an avid Vampire Diaries fan, I am one of the many girls who swoon at just the thought of sexy Ian Somerhalder (who plays troubled brother, Damon Salvatore, in the show) sends shivers down my spine. So when I watched this video, my mind was already made up.
The more I dive into 50 Shades of Grey and into the dark, twisted world of the protagonist, Christian Grey, the more I am convinced there is no better actor than Ian Somerhalder for the movie adaptation. While reading, I can’t help but picture Somerhalder when my imagination is taking hold of the scene. Putting a face to the name of Christian Grey was truly that simple. Not only does Somerhalder want the part, but he definitely is hot enough to play promiscuous and sexy Grey!
Now I can’t decide if I should go read more of the book or find more Ian Somerhalder videos. Both seem like good options…
Lovelies, do you agree that Ian Somerhalder would make the perfect Christian Grey? Or is there another actor you could see as Anastasia Steele’s beloved?
