Joe Manganiello Destined For Christian Grey Role In ’50 Shades Of Grey’ Movie? [PHOTOS]
The actor was recently interviewed by EXTRA about his role in Magic Mike as a male stripper and shared his thoughts about the hot topic and sexually charged novel 50 Shades of Grey and its predicted movie casting.
When asked if he would be interested in playing the undeniably alluring character Christian Grey in the movie version Manganiello quipped, “Sure, of course I’d be up for it!” and added, “Why not?”
The True Blood star spilled to Vulture on his latest film, Magic Mike about the details- specifically the costume choices for his character.
The actor discussed his experience with being stripped of not only clothes, but how filming for this role has encouraged him to take risks. “The day of shooting, there was a team of five women and it took over an hour and they just covered me, every crevice, in gold. And the costumers gave me this gold lamé thong with a fig leaf on the front, and I just went for it.” The actor said it took him days to erase the traces of gold on his skin.
For anyone to take on the role of Christian Grey in the film version of 50 Shades of Grey risk is certainly involved. There is no denying that Manganiello has the right assets to pull of a character as versatile as Grey.
