Fifty Shades Of Grey Stephen Amell

Now that Emma Watson has shot down the recent rumors regarding her casting in Hollywood's hot erotic movie of the moment, "Fifty Shades Of Grey," it's time for the mill to churn again, and this time a new face has popped up as a contender. And this time, it's for the male lead.

"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]
