The Fifty Shades of Grey casting rumors are still fast and furious. I wish they’d just cast this thing and put us all out of our misery. I’m sure the producers are in no rush though because the pre-hype for this film is off the charts.
Hedlund, 28, reportedly turned down an offer to play the lead role in the trilogy as it was “too big a commitment”, according to US Weekly. Producers were unwilling to allow the On The Road star to sign on for one film only. Garrett is seen here leaving the Chateau Marmont with his girlfriend Kirsten Dunst last week.
Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder, who has been very vocal about his desire to play Christian, is also reportedly not in the running. The mag reported that during her appearance at Comic-Con, James was heard telling people, “the part won’t go to Ian.”
This gif pretty much sums up how I feel about Ian being out of the running for the Christian Grey role.
