In 1938 every actress from Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Joan Fontaine to Heddy Lemar all wanted to play the role of Scarlet O’Hara in David O. Zelnick’s epic film “Gone With The Wind.” Vivienne Leigh beat out the competition, as the British beauty landed the role that made her a true star and forever an icon. In 1949 it was 20th Century Fox’s “All About Eve,” which Bette Davis managed to garner just months after departing from her iconic spot at Warner Bros. Studios. But now the question burning on the minds of fans of the hit novel “Fifty Shades Of Grey” is, who should portray the sexy role of Christian? Highlight Hollywood says it’s down to these three hunks; “True Blood’s” Alexander Skarsgard, film star Ryan Gosling and “Vampire Diaries” stunner Ian Somerhalder. Who do you choose?
Alex Skarsgard has already declaired, “Where do I sign?” After the handsome swede found out about Christian’s sex chamber in the upcoming film, he compared it to Eric’s dungeon in Bon Temps. “He’s got a sex chamber? My character has that on ‘True Blood.’ He’s got his little dungeon,” said sexy Alex. Adding, “I was born to play that part.”
So, which guy is your choice?
