Stephen Amell addresses "Fifty Shades" rumors.

Ian Somerhalder isn't the only Hollywood heartthrob interested in snagging the kinky role of Christian Grey in the highly-anticipated film adoption of E.L. James' "Fifty Shades of Grey" - CW's "Arrow" hottie Stephen Amell is down for some BDSM-lovin', too! The handsome 31-year-old Canadian native recently posted a video on Facebook addressing all of the Mr. Grey rumors - apparently, he's already "had a meeting" in regards to potential casting! But "Fifty Shades" fans shouldn't get too worked up about it - Amell insists that final casting decisions are still a rather long ways off, so nothing's confirmed... yet. Still, pretty exciting stuff! Meanwhile, it looks like another stunning starlet has entered herself into the Anastasia Steele running... "Twilight" beauty, Nikki Reed. The 24-year-old actress recently admitted that she'd consider working on any project with Dana Brunetti, who just-so-happens to be the producer of "Fifty Shades"... read on for all the details!

Amell has continued to stir Christian Grey buzz ever since "Fifty Shades" casting rumors began hitting the web earlier last year. As Mstars originally reported:


Hmm... do "Fifty Shades" enthusiasts think Amell could fit the part? He has the look down, with his handsomely rugged physique and sensual smirk... and he definitely carries that mysterious, sexy air about him.

When asked about starring in the "Fifty Shades" films, Amell told reporters back in November, "I mean if you think about it, it would be four movies, the last part being two parts. I don't even own a house yet. So I don't think that I'd be turning that down any time soon."

Along with starring as the Green Arrow, Amell has taken on several other acting roles in television on hit shows including "Dante's Cove," "Heartland," "The Vampire Diaries," "New Girl," "Hung," and "Private Practice." The Toronto, Canada native has also starred in a number of small film roles (including the 2006 Lifetime television film "The House Next Door").

The CW television series "Arrow" is based on the fictional character Green Arrow, a costumed crime-fighter who appears in comic books published by DC Comics. The man behind the Green Arrow mask is Oliver Queen, a billionaire playboy from Starling City who was left stranded for dead on an abandoned island and who's now back for revenge.

Amell has faded into the "Fifty Shades" background over the past few weeks, but as the IB Times recently pointed out, his rock-hard physique is just impossible to ignore... totally Christian Grey-worthy! Especially since his star role on "Arrow" has continued to gain avid popularity ever since the CW picked up the hit series back in October. Not to mention... Amell not only looks fantastic with his shirt off, but he can rock a classic suit just fine.


Now, there's this, which Amell posted on his Facebook on Thursday, March 21:


According to Amell, "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. I mean, not that long, but not close. I wouldn't call it long, but I wouldn't call it close."

So, it's totally possible that Amell met with ""Fifty Shades" filmmakers because he's on a shortlist of Christian Grey favorites. It's also possible that he simply met with his agent to discuss the possibility of auditioning for the handsome, seductive Christian Grey... what do fans think? Excited that Amell addressed the Mr. Grey rumors?

Meanwhile, "Twilight" sweetheart Nikki Reed said this about starring as the pretty and "innocent" Anastasia Steele - "I would consider working with Dana in any form."

Reed, who is very good friends with "Fifty Shades" producer Dana Brunetti, would probably have no problem snagging an audition for the part. Do fans think the "Lords of Dogtown" starlet has what it takes? She definitely has the look!


Considering several Steele fan-favorites, including Emma Watson and Mila Kunis, have made it clear that they DON'T want the role, maybe James will take some notice? Reed first rose to fame after starring in and co-writing the 2003 teen drama "Thirteen," so she has experience taking on a rather "controversial" role:


So how about it, "Fifty Shades" fans? Would Amell and Reed make the perfect Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele kinky duo?

Amell and Reed as Grey and Steele?
