'True Blood' actor going 'Grey?'

  • Is Alexander Skarsgard considering the role of Christian Grey of '50 Shades of Grey' fame?
  • Skarsgard may be on the short list of possible actors to play the role

“True Blood” star Alexander Skarsgard might be hanging up his vampire fangs -- temporarily, at least -- to take on a more “loving” role. Skarsgard is reportedly on the short list of actors to play the role of Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of the best selling novel “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

At the red carpet premiere for the fifth season of "True Blood" Skarsgard told Showbiz Tonight that while he hasn’t heard much about being a front-runner for the role, he’s "flattered" people would consider him.

Skarsgard has some stiff competition: “Vampire Diaries” star Ian Somerhalder told MTV News he thinks portraying Christian Grey on the big screen would be "amazing."
