Posts Tagged ‘Ian Somerhalder’

I have been thinking about this post for awhile.  Really since I wrote the post on the best 3 reasons to read Fifty Shades of Grey.   From all the buzz around Hollywood, there are a lot of people who have a big interest in playing this character.  I know that Universal Pictures and Focus Features were the successful studios that secured the rights to the film version of the book.

Universal Pictures and Focus Features now have one of the most difficult jobs to be performed – casting Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.  I am sure this is kind of like how it was to find Bella and Edward from Twilight.   I do not envy the job of the casting agents – that will be hell and they are probably going to get some form of negative press for whoever they pick (because we all know you can’t please everyone).  However, I did want to add my own opinion as to who should be on that list (and I really want to hear from others also!!!).  Since I am going to be one of those people that will definitely be checking out the movie, I thought that it would be appropriate.

So, here are the Best 3…Actors to Play Christian Grey (from Fifty Shades of Grey):

1.  Alex Pettyfer

2Alexander Skarsgard

 3. Henry Cavill

I have to say that I thought long and hard about this (because this casting will determine whether I actually go and see the movie) and Alex Pettyfer is at the top of my list.  Not only is he the one that I can picture immediately as Christian Grey, the others are far behind him.  He is younger than Christian Grey but there is something about him that exudes the characteristics of Grey and all that he is.  Plus he has the looks down and I can definitely picture him with no shirt on…so I am Team Alex!  I know that he doesn’t have the best reputation but with landing a role like this hopefully he would understand how lucky he is and all the doors that this role will open!

My second choice is someone that is a little older (because he is in his 30s) but Alexander Skarsgard still has the looks and the talent to pull off the character.  He also has a way of really getting into character and making you believe in who he is portraying.  Plus, Alexander looks amazing without a shirt and without anything on – plus he is the one actor who has shown a lot of skin (on True Blood) and doesn’t seem to shy away from it if that is what the role calls for.

My last choice was even a surprise to me but the more I thought about it, the more I could picture Henry Cavill as Christian Grey.  Plus after the Immortals, I know that he looks great without a shirt on and those eyes just draw you in.  There would have to be a change in the hair color but with Hollywood movie magic that shouldn’t be a problem.

Who do you think should be cast as Christian Grey?  I really want to know what others are thinking out there – so leave comments!

With this blog, I promised the Best 3 of Everything out there in the world.  I am bouncing from one topic to the next with no consistency and that is just what I intended.  My posts are things that might strike me at one moment in the day and I just run with it.  After my last post of Best 3 days of the week, I thought about what I do on some of those days and that included watching TV.

So, here are the Best 3…TV Shows (on television right now):

1.  The Vampire Diaries

2.  Sons of Anarchy

3. Community

There are some honorable mentions: The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, The Amazing Race, The Voice, The River (which I do like because its different) and NCIS: LA.

Let’s talk about #1 best pick – The Vampire Diaries.  There is so much to say about this show.  It is great – that is the first thing.  It is filled with amazing characters (and great actors such as Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Joseph Morgan and the rest of the cast).  The episodes are great.  This show has a great way of not leaving you guessing which just annoys me in shows that seem to drag you along.

For those that are going to hate me for saying this – I am rooting for Elena and Stefan.  They belong together.  I’ve loved them together since Day 1.   It broke my heart when Stefan became the Ripper – so sad but I like how the last few episodes ***spoiler alert*** explains that he is off human blood!  Yeah!!!   Damon is so good looking but not right for Elena.  I’m also loving the Caroline/Klaus storyline – I hope this is explored – maybe Caroline can love him like he needs to be loved – that is my hope.   There is so much more to say but I will leave it there for now.

As for my second best, I love Sons of Anarchy.  What a great and original show.  Its nice to see a show that isn’t focused on lawyers, doctors or cops.  It has superb acting from Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, Maggie Siff, Ron Perlman and the rest of the cast.  The episodes are full of everything from romance, to violence to drama to comedy.  It hooked me in from its very first episode.  I was so glad to hear that it is getting another season.  Yeah!!! SAMCRO

As for my last pick, Community is one of those shows (such as Chuck – which I loved – R.I.P. Chuck) that is really funny yet cannot seem to gather the audience.  It is clever, hilarious and like no other show on the tube.  Please, let’s hope NBC gets smart and doesn’t get rid of it.

If you are reading this and have never seen the shows I mention, I encourage you to check them out.
