Alexander Skarsgård Says He Was "Born to Play" Christian in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'
Watch out, Ian Somerhalder! You've got some competition when it comes to nabbing the lead role in E L James' book series turned movie franchise, Fifty Shades of Grey.
True Blood hunk Alexander Skarsgård admited to Access Hollywood that he's interested in bringing Christian Grey to the big screen, joking, "I was born to play that part!"
In truth, Alexander hasn't even heard of the book, but once he got an earful on what the best-selling series was all about, the actor was very intrigued.
“Where do I sign?” he smiled, after Access Hollywood filled him in on all the sexy and erotic details. “He’s got a sex chamber?" Alexander asked. "My character has that on True Blood. He’s got his little dungeon,” he added, referring to vampire Eric Northman. That's when the hunk joked he was "born to play" Christian.
But sadly, another one of our favorite on-screen vampires, Ian, who plays Damon Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries, is really interested in the role, too!
"I absolutely would be up for that," Ian told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show last week. "That would be a pretty incredible thing, and hopefully that could pan out, I think."
