Ian Somerhalder to appear in the movie adaptation of the novel Fifty Shades of Grey? The actor visited On Air With Ryan Seacrest Monday morning when he was asked about the possible role of billionaire Christian Grey.
He told Ryan, “Potentially. I absolutely would be up for that. I have the book and I just started reading it. That would be a pretty incredible thing, and hopefully that could pan out, I think… Yes, beyond the shadow of a doubt I think that would be a phenomenal opportunity!”
Ryan then asked him who he would pick to play Anastasia Steele. Smiling and avoiding giving an answer, he said that would “be tricky.”
That’s because his girlfriend Nina Dobrev was probably listening too! The couple recently enjoyed their time together at Coachella.
Ian said, “I saw Florence and the Machine on Saturday. They blew my mind at Coachella. Her voice is incredible. I just wanted to walk up on the stage an just hug her, then I realized that that was the song they had cut together, and thought ‘Oooooo. That’s going to be pretty.’”
The actor also talked about “The Kiss” that happened on The Vampire Diaries last week
“It was definitely three years for us on the show, but I think our season is about six months each. You figure about a year and a half of them knowing each other. It’s a pretty big build up!”
