Casting Christian Grey seems like an almost impossible task. The book series 50 Shades of Grey were so wildly popular among female readers, who will play the perfect male main character? Because the character was written in a racy, romance novel, the choices may be limited. The provocative nature of the role, may steer some bigger names away who don't want to be cast into a romance novel type film or it might attracted some interesting candidates. All we can do is speculate until the big decision is made, once again.
Charlie Hunnam from Sons of Anarchy signed on for a while, and after being met with much opposition, he has dropped out. There has been speculation over whether he was forced out due to the negative reaction he had gotten from the public, or whether he had no desire to do it all along. Some reports claim that he told his agents from the very beginning that he had no desire to be part of the project at all. Either way, the role is up for grabs. So the hunt is on again!
I polled some women to find out who the public wants to play Christian Grey now and the results are in! After all, the movie-going females of the world are who will really be enjoying Christian's character on the big screen.

Jenna from NYC agrees with the majority, that Iam Somerhalder is the best man for the job. "I never read the books, but I did watch Vampire Diaries and Ian was sexy in that so from what I hear of the book I think he would be a good fit."
