Two of television's hottest bloodsuckers are competing for a killer movie role based on the hottest, most erotic book in stores today, Fifty Shades of Grey!
It seems both True Blood's Alexander Skarsgård and The Vampire Diaries Ian Somerhalder would both like to sink their teeth into the role of businessman Christian Grey, who embarks on a erotically-charged relationship with submissive young student Anastasia Steele in the bestselling series of books authored by E.L. James.
Ian Somerhalder from the CW network's popular Vampire Diaries told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show that he "absolutely would be up for that... It could be amazing. It could be very, very amazing," regarding rumors he would play the romantic character in a movie version of the book.
Ian has some tough competition from True Blood's Alexander Skarsgård, however. The Swedish actor told Access Hollywood that he was "born to play" the character, commenting: “He’s got a sex chamber? My character has that on True Blood. He’s got his little dungeon."
The movie rights to Fifty Shades of Grey were recently sold to Universal Pictures and Focus Features. No casting decisions have been announced.
