[POLL] 50 Shades of Grey: Who Will Play Christian And Anastasia?

The competition between who should play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele is fierce among readers of the best-selling trilogy.

Several weeks ago, Montclair Patch surrounding New York Times bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey at Watchung Booksellers and elsewhere. The continued interest surrounding the steamy trilogy penned by British author E L James has been strong enough to have us wondering what's next.

Now that the movie rights have been sold to Universal Pictures and Focus Features, it was only a matter of time before debates broke out over who should play the main two characters capturing the imaginations of millions of readers around the world.

Already, Deadline.com is reporting that Angelina Jolie could possibly sign on to direct the movie version—so she won't be playing leading lady.

With more than 10 million copies sold so far, the book has been a marketing boon with even the likes of Brooks Brother’s featuring Eight Shades of Grey Ties!

The Huffington Post has put together a list and photo slideshow of candidates for all the story's major players. Did they get it right on Anastasia Steele, the headstrong but naive recent college graduate? What about secretive and complex billionaire businessman Christian Grey, with whom she has an erotic sexual relationship that has female readers swooning over every page?

Take our poll and let us know who you see playing the leading roles.

Henry Cavill IS Christian Grey. He has the looks,the body,the eyes,looks great in a suit,can play domineering,controlling,sweet,loving,seductive,as well as Christians playful & painful submissive side. He also has that boyish smile.have you seen his Dunhill ads on youtube? They SCREAM Fifty! He also played these sides in Tudors & has no problem with nudity as his has done that also on Tudors. He has it all. Alexandra Daddario has all of the features of Ana. The lomg brown hair,big blue eyes to big for her face & lips that look cute when she bites it along with the alabaster skin. At 26 she can look 22 & yet is mature enough for the more explicit scenes. She can also do the action scnes well aas she had training in Percy jackson so should give a greta punch. They would look great together she can look innocent & sexy as well as grow to becoming a mother.

For me there is not another Christian Grey that fit so perfectly than Henry Cavill all the time reading the books he was my christian. Alexandra Daddario she fit so well as Anastasia she has that fresh innocent look and kick ass too when she wants to. for me they are the perfect fit for Anastasia and Christian.
