Fans of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" books show not thrilled that Charlie Hunnam will play the role of Christian Grey and it seems as if the actor behind the scenes was not the first choice for the role.
That, at least that Bret Easton Ellis, who was talking for writing the screenplay for the film version. On Twitter, he revealed that the Harry Potter author had wanted for the male lead.
E.L. James and I were at Rob Pattinson's house when she admitted that Rob was first choice for Christian. Ian Somerhalder never in running.

In June, they celebrated together with the actor at his home in Los Feliz and danced to 3 clock in the morning and there were quite drunk, as Bret Easton Ellis revealed.
The screenwriter, who worked "The Canyons" as a film, also explained that some of the casting rumors were false. Thus, neither Ian Somerhalder still Matt Bomer talks for the role of Christian Grey.
