Chris Hemsworth's name has been thrown into the ring as a hot-choice for the role of Christian. He said in response: "This rumour all started because we were in an interview [for The Avengers] and someone said to Chris Evans, 'We heard you're attached and you're going to play Grey,' and he said, 'Ah, no someone mentioned it to me.'... I was like, 'What is it? I dunno, maybe I'm interested!"
Since finding out a bit more about the trilogy he said "I've heard it's some sexual, romantic, trashy... what is it? I'm not going to say anything because I haven't read the book. I keep kind of getting in trouble for even entering into a conversation about it!" He would definitely nail those topless scenes... someone hand the man some ripped denim jeans!
