’50 Shades of Grey’ Movie: Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev Casting Rumors Cleared
Who’s starring in the 50 Shades of Grey movie? If you believe the rumors suggesting that The Vampire Diaries stars and real life couple, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, are being considered for the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, you might be sorely disappointed. They may have chemistry on and off-screen, but these two probably won’t have the pleasure of indulging in a bit of S&M as part of a theatrical release. Ian has recently confirmed that he and Nina are likely not in the running for the lead roles.
According to Hollywood.com, Ian Somerhalder recently talked to Extra about 50 Shades of Grey, dismissing the possibility that Universal movie studies would be interested in picking a TV couple for the main roles. “I can’t imagine Universal doing that, but that could be very interesting. I think if we were both in Fifty Shades Of Grey, people would still see us as (our Vampire Diaries characters) Elena and Damon.”
Seeing the couple in the sure-to-be steamy roles might not be a convincing fit for their TVD fans who would constantly have bloodsuckers on the brain. Besides that, everyone knows they’re already doing the naughty off-screen. So would it be as exciting—or believable—when their “relationship” in the 50 Shades of Grey movie plays out?
