Tv - Stephen Amell In Talks For Christian Grey Role

Canadian Tv star Stephen Amell has confirmed reports he has been approached to play Christian Grey in a movie adaptation of E.L. James' bestselling erotic novel Fifty Shades Of Grey.

Just a week after movie executives were forced to dismiss rumours suggesting Emma Watson had been cast as sexy student Anastasia Steele, all eyes are now on Arrow star Amell after he recently confessed in a Facebook.com chat with fans that he has been involved in talks about the role of masochistic billionaire Grey.

He says, "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. A long way off. I mean, not that long. But not close."

Ian Somerhalder is considered a fan favourite to land the role, but he has so far refused to speculate about the Grey film.

Watson's apparent casting hit blogs and gossip sites a week ago (15Mar13) when anonymous hackers leaked stolen documents from a German film studio. Among them were letters that appeared to confirm the Harry Potter star would be playing Steele.

Film bosses insisted the documents were old.
