‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ & Alexander Skarsgard: A Perfect Fit?
Brought to you by OBS reviewer Heidi
I know that we’ve posted articles about this before, but I just really enjoyed reading some of the comments Alexander made during this interview so I though it was worth bringing up once again.
The film adaptation of E.L. James’s breakout erotica trilogy, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” continues to seduce a-list actors who want to star in the leading roles. Alexander Skarsgard, star of HBO’s “True Blood,” has topped many fan wish lists as the top choice to star as sultry sadist Christian Grey, and while some have deemed the actor, “too good” for the role, Skarsgard says he’s definitely attracted to the movie, and would be perfect for the part.
In a recent interview, the “True Blood” star revealed he’s very intrigued by the movie version of James’ hugely popular books, and thinks he would fit in Christian’s skin with the comfort of a latex onesie.
“I know it’s a very big, high-profile project, so of course it’s flattering that there are people who would like to see me do it,” said Skarsgard to Dailychilli.com.
“At the same time, it’s difficult to say it’s something you want to do or not because I don’t think there’s a script-at least I haven’t read a script,” he admitted.
While the film version of “Fifty Shades of Grey” is expected to maintain all the salacious kink of the novel, turning off more demure actors, Skarsgard says he’s not anxious at all about playing Mr. Grey, if he is indeed offered the part. The actor says he’s totally comfortable filming sex scenes and getting in compromising positions.
Responding to whether or not the idea of explicit sex scenes turned him off from the role, Skarsgard responded, “[Sex scenes] don’t bother me at all. I don’t find it uncomfortable or difficult at all. Relax, enjoy and have fun with it. That’s my trick.”…
Kellen Lutz, Ian Somerhalder, Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Matt Bomer, Robert Pattinson, and even Justin Beiber are among many actors’ names that have already been mentioned in casting the leading role of Christian Grey, a troubled businessman who seduces an innocent college graduate called Anastasia Steele.” (BooksnReview.com)
I don’t know about you, but I would love to see Alexander in those compromising positions mentioned in this article….latex onesie or not:) With his comfort with nudity and sex scenes I think this could be a match made in dominatrix heaven:)
As for the other actors they mention that could be up for the role…there are definitely some strong possibilities….Ian Somerhalder especially. I’m not so sure about Robert Pattinson though….I just can’t see him into BDSM! And Justin Beiber? You’ve got to be freaking kidding me!! Nothing like having a kid play some kinky adult role. Who the f through that one out there??
Who would you like to see play Christian?
