Garrett Hedlund Turned Down ‘Fifty Shades Role’, Ian Somerhalder No Longer In The Running
Hedlund, 28, reportedly turned down an offer to play the lead role in the trilogy as it was “too big a commitment”, according to US Weekly. Producers were unwilling to allow the On The Road star to sign on for one film only. Garrett is seen here leaving the Chateau Marmont with his girlfriend Kirsten Dunst last week.
Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder, who has been very vocal about his desire to play Christian, is also reportedly not in the running. The mag reported that during her appearance at Comic-Con, James was heard telling people, “the part won’t go to Ian.”
This gif pretty much sums up how I feel about Ian being out of the running for the Christian Grey role.
