Things have been quiet on the "Fifty Shades of Grey" front. We know something is happening with that movie, but we have no idea what. But now comes word that "Arrow" star and all-around-dream-man Stephen Amell (and his perfect abs and baby blues) could tackle the role of Christian Grey. Our pulses are racing!
"I get questions about Christian Grey all the time," Stephen shared on Facebook. "That project is a long way off. I know this, because I had a meeting about it. Long way off. I mean, not that long, but not close. I wouldn't call it long, but I wouldn't call it close."
Of all the hotties that have been rumored for this role, Stephen would be a pretty great choice. He has the looks. The abs. And just the right amount of star power. He’s not headlining movies—yet—but also not a complete unknown. He needs that extra push to make him a household name. This movie would definitely do it.
We also know he can brood in the hottest way possible thanks to that other slightly damaged rich-guy role on The CW. And if he’s not worried about typecasting, we’re not sure you should be either. He added, "You know what you have to do to get typecast? You have to work. A bunch. And working as an actor is the most important thing. I think one of the highest honors you can have as an actor is to be typecast because that means you've done a significant amount of work in one specific realm."
No arguments from us here. We just wonder who could get freaky with him and star as Anastasia. If the studio is reading this, we might be able to find some time in our schedules...
