‘Arrow’ hottie Stephen Amell might star in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

Stephen Amell

Because at this point, casting for the new Fifty Shades of Grey movie has become a matter of throwing darts at a board covered in People magazines and making an offer to whoever they hit, Arrow star Stephen Amell has reportedly been approached for the role of Christian Grey, the abusive asshole that fans of the books apparently all swoon over. Entertainment Weekly reports …

In a Facebook Q&A with fans, Arrow star Stephen Amell confirms that he’s had a meeting to discuss the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. “I get questions about Christian Grey all the time. That project is a long way off. I know this, because I had a meeting about it. Long way off,” he says in a video posted last night. “I mean, not that long, but not close. I wouldn’t call it long, but I wouldn’t call it close.”

On one hand, have you ever seen that guy without his shirt on? Good Lord, that’s unholy hot. That being said, the book was terrible and the movie will inevitably end up getting torn to shreds by critics, so I kinda hope he stays away from this one.
