Tv - Stephen Amell Rules Himself Out Of Fifty Shades Movie

Canadian Tv star Stephen Amell has no interest in taking the coveted role of Christian Grey in the upcoming movie adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey after reading the raunchy bestseller on a recent flight.

The Arrow star previously sent fans into a frenzy after revealing he had entered into talks to play the masochistic billionaire in a big-screen version of E.L. James' erotic novel.

But after finally getting his hands on a copy, Amell is adamant he's not the right man for the job.

In a post on his Facebook.com page, he writes, "Was on a flight yesterday evening back to La with no movie, so I grabbed 50 Shades of Grey and burned through it. Ummm... I hope they get the movie made, and I'm sure someone will be excellent in it. That person will not be me."

In March (13), the hunk admitted he had talked to studio bosses about the much-anticipated project: "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."
