Mark Wright - Mark Wright Eyes 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Lead Role

Subscribe to Mark Wright alerts

Mark Wright, the UK reality television star, claims he is the perfect man to fill the role of Christian Grey in the forthcoming movie adaption of E.L James' huge selling erotic novel 'Fifty Shades of Grey'. The former star of The Only Way is Essex reckons that landing the raunchy role would help him in his quest to conquer Hollywood.
The aspiring actor told the Daily Star newspaper, "I'd love to play Christian - that would be such a great part for me. Everybody is loving that book right now". Mr Grey is the sado-masochistic protagonist of the novel, though Wright claims he doesn't share the character's fetishes, saying, "I'm not into sado-masochism myself though, I'm more of a romantic. I swear I've never been whipped in my life". The 25-year-old finished runner-up in the last series of 'I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here' and insists he could one day make it as a film star, saying, "I want to be James Bond one day. Nothing fazes me. You've got to have ambition. I want to be a massive Hollywood actor".
While Wright insists he could thrive in the role, Lionsgate and Focus Features - who purchased the rights for the movie - probably have other ideas. Though the movie is likely to be huge anyway, the correct castings could see the film become a franchise of 'Twilight' like proportions. It's likely that Ryan Gosling and Michael Fassbender will be sounded out for the role, but here's to hoping, eh Mark?
