"Arrow" star Stephen Amell has revealed he's been approached for the lead in the movie. "I get questions about Christian Grey all the time. That project is a long way off. I know this, because I had a meeting about it," he explained in a recent video post to Facebook. "A long way off. I mean, not that long, but not close. I wouldn't call it long, but I wouldn't call it close."
So, ladies, is this the right dude to play Christian Grey, the 28-year-old billionaire who gets kinky with the submissive, virginal Anastasia? We will say this -- for anyone looking for a major A-list star to do this, don't hold your breath. This is the way casting will probably go, as younger stars, more able to take risks in a role like this will likely land the leads. Unless Jake Gyllenhaal really wants to shake things up or something.
Anyhow, watch Amell's video and let us know your thoughts below. [via Digital Spy]
