Okay, we all know that William Levy is SO FREAKING HOT but now that there are rumors flying around about him being cast as Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of popular erotica novel 50 Shades of Grey, I'm even more breathless.

He went on Extra last night to talk with his buddy (and host of the show) Mario Lopez about this exciting possible development and his upcoming project with Tyler Perry--which he revealed to the world for the first time yesterday. So what's the sexy Cuban star got to say about it all?

When it comes to appearing as the sexy billionaire and dominant lover Christian Grey to not-quite-that-submissive Anastasia Steele, William admitted that he liked the book and thinks "all guys should be like that." Okay, I liked the books but I didn't LOVE them and, to be honest, I was really annoyed by the over controlling tendencies of Mr. Grey, so I'm hoping William is referring more to his romantic (and sexually experienced) tendencies. Though I admit: he'd make an AMAZING Christian Grey for sure.

Sadly, that's not actually happening YET but I'm definitely hoping. In the meantime, he broke some movie news by telling the audience that he's going to be starring in a new Tyler Perry romantic comedy that the actor/writer/director/producer wrote and will be producing, with shooting starting in September. Either way, I really want to see a LOT more of William Levy (um, what woman doesn't?) so I just can't wait for that!

While I think William Levy is very hot - he's too old to play Christian Grey. I'd much rather see an actor in his late twenties with this role!

Too old to play Christian Grey??? You can't be serious. Hes in his early thirties and Christian is 27/28 in the books. I can't think of one actor that is in his mid twenties that could pull off the smolder that is necessary to play Fifty.

No, he is not Christian Grey. Although he is handsome, he doesn't have that mysterious, dark, look to him....Ian somerhalder has those eyes that scream and pull you in wanting more...that's Christian Grey material!

William levy not mysterious or dark enough?!!! Really now, drips with sexiness, Christian Grey all over!!!
Ryan Gosling? Really I'm reading some of these comments, and I just don't get the flipping female swooning of that man. he's ugly. Anyways, I could STOMACH William in this role. But I'm going to keep my hopes in Ian Somerhalder. For me he's a much better choice ;]
