The 50 Shades of Grey movie producers are likely aiming for an R rating, but one actor interested in playing Christian Grey is willing to go NC-17. So watch out, Michael FassbenderÂ—you're not the only actor brave enough to go full frontal anymore.
New Girl actor Max Greenfield didn't win the Emmy that he was nominated for tonight, but he's hoping that playing an anal ladies man will help him win a bigger prizeÂ—the role of control freak Christian. According to Wetpaint, Max was walking the red carpet at the Emmys when E! asked him if he's willing to go full frontal as the seductive, sex slave-spanking billionaire. He responded by saying, "[Nudity]'s not the issue. It's the issue of whether they want to see that much intensity on screen." He then said that he'll see E! at the Oscars.
Max Greenfield was obviously joking, but why couldn't he be considered for the role of Christian Grey? Other TV actors like Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer are favorites for the part, but now Max has bested themÂ—he can add "Emmy nominated" to his rÃ©sumÃ©. And just like Christian, his New Girl character has a taste for the finer things in life, like exotic lavender-scented shampoos and luxurious kimonos that show off his sexy gams. However, Schmidt might not want to wrinkle a perfectly good silk tie by using it to tie a girl up, even if she is drop-dead gorgeous like Anastasia Steele. And just imagine how Schmidt would react after learning that Ana borrowed his toothbrush.
Even if Max doesn't win the role in the 50 Shades of Grey movie, fans of the erotic novel are in luckÂ—Schmidt's new boss (Carla Gugino) will be a sex-crazed control freak that makes him sign a 50 Shades-esque contract.
So do you think that Max could pull off playing Christian? And did he deserve the Emmy for New Girl?
