In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Ian Somerhalder of The Vampire Diaries revealed that he would love to star in the film adaptation of the erotic fiction novel Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James. The novel is pretty controversial since it’s sexually explicit, and…wait for it…was originally Twilight fan fiction! So, many women have been picking it up and finding it a new guilty pleasure, while many others are dismissing it before reading it due to it’s themes and origin. In the interview Somerhalder said, “Potentially. I absolutely would be up for that. I have the book and I just started reading it. That would be a pretty incredible thing, and hopefully that could pan out, I think.” He affirms, “Yes, beyond the shadow of a doubt I think that would be a phenomenal opportunity!” He’s referring to the role of young businessman, Christian Grey, who develops a relationship with college graduate, Anastasia Steele. What do you think, would you like Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey? What do you think of this novel?
