E.L. James‘ husband, Niall Leonard, has hinted on who will be playing the part of Christian Grey in the new Fifty Shades film series.

He says that last he heard, Ryan Gosling would be playing the role. Also, he insists the part is not based on him.

“I’m glad I’m not him because he’s actually damaged,” Leonard says. “I wouldn’t have liked to go through what he went through.”

Update: E.L. James has responded to the rumours, tweeting “ALL CASTING NEWS NOT TRUE. ALL ARE RUMOURS AT THE MOMENT. YES, SHOUTY CAPITALS. GRRR….”

This includes the rumours of Gosling, porn star James Deen or any other names that have come up.
