Matt Bomer As Possible Christian Grey?

Submitted by on August 8, 2012 – 4:44 pm Comments

  A topic of recent controversy has been the casting of Christian Grey from the erotic romance trilogy “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Although there are several fan favorites the top three have been Ryan Gosling (Gangster Squad), Ian Somerhalder (Vampire Diaries), and Matt Bomer (Magic Mike). However the hunky actor taking the entire back lash is openly gay actor Matt Bomer.

Bret Easton Ellis, one of many writers out of the running to be the screenwriter to the movie, has set twitter ablaze with his opinion stating this morning “Okay I’ll say it. Matt Bomer isn’t right for Christian Grey because he is openly gay. He’s great for other roles but this is too big a game.” And then five minutes later goes on in yet another tweet to say “I am NOT discriminating Matt Bomer because of his sexuality. Fifty Shades of Grey demands an actor that is genuinely into women. Get it?!?”  He also goes on to say “I think Matt Bomer is incredibly handsome and a good actor but I think he comes off totally gay in White Collar. And that is why no to CG…”

For those out of the erotic fiction loop, Christian Grey is an eccentric, billionaire playboy, with a dark past and a dirty little secret. He is a dominatrix. That is until he meets sweet and innocent Ana Steele, who turns his world upside down and unravels the mystery that is Christian Grey.  Of course it would not be and erotic romance with out several heated sex scenes bridging from mild to kinky, they literally cannot keep their hands off each other.

So here is the deal. Matt Bomer is a very talented actor and would not be the first actor to cross over between straight to gay rolls or gay to straight. Even greats like Neil Patrick Harris have awed us with their on screen prowess.  However the role of Christian Grey will be one of those make or break it roles for the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey” and for Matt Bomer it would be a test to his acting ability if he could make the lady fans believe that he was genuinely interested in whoever is cast as Ana Steele. A great actor will make you see the character they play first and not their personal life. It remains to be seen who is cast, but all the same the movie whenever it releases will break the box office.
