Earlier this week writer Bret Easton Ellis took to Twitter that former adult film star James Deen was up for the role of Christian Grey in the upcoming film adaption of Fifty Shades Of Grey.
Here is that tweet:
Just got inside information that James Deen is actually in the running to play Christian in "Fifty Shades of Grey" with E.L. James support.—

But names like Ryan Gosling, Matt Bomer, Henry Cavil, Ian Somerhalder, Scott Elrod, Alexander Skarsgard, and many others have been rumored to be up for the role.
Last night E.L. James took to Twitter to address all the casting rumors. She tweeted, “ALL CASTING NEWS NOT TRUE. ALL ARE RUMOURS AT THE MOMENT. YES, SHOUTY CAPITALS. GRRR….” However, she has since deleted the tweet.
Whoever is cast I can’t wait for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. I think they should cast, Ryan Gosling as Christian and Jennifer Laurence as Anastasia. Who would you cast?
