The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev were already stars but since landing the lead roles on their hit TV series, they've become more famous. Now, there's talk of Ian and Nina expanding their domination from the small screen to the big screen. And, better than starring in solo gigs, Ian and Nina may be continuing what works by landing lead roles in the upcoming movie 50 Shades of Grey. What better way to keep your fan base happy than to give them what they want?
50 Shades of Grey is basically a different kind of love story: a kinkier and darker kind. Its lead female role, Ana Steele, falls for its lead male role Christian Grey and together they engage in a "sadomasochistic physical affair." The movie will be produced by Focus Features and Universal Pictures.
Fans are hoping the lead roles will be played by a number of real life couples. Twilight fans want their powerhouse couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart for the roles. However, fans of The Vampire Diaries want Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev for the leads. Frankly, Dobrev may not be a big time movie star but her acting chops are far superior to Stewart's.
Speaking about Chrisitan Grey, Somerhalder said, "I absolutely would be up for it. It could be very, very amazing. I think [playing Grey] would be a pretty incredible thing, and hopefully, that could pan out."
50 Shades of Grey would benefit from having a couple land the leading roles together. However, having just Ian Somerhalder with Kristen Stewart or just Robert Pattinson with Nina Dobrev would still make an interesting combination. Which couple do you think should play Christian Grey and Ana Steele?
