    Our hearts officially went into a sexual tizzy when Alexander Skarsgård revealed he was "born to play" the racy role of Christian Grey in E.L. James' New York Times best-seller Fifty Shades of Grey.

    And although we've been eagerly campaigning for Taylor Kitsch for the role as Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games' sequel Catching Fire, the hunky dude recently revealed he's constantly asked about his interest in the pornographic part.

    So is Mr. Kitsch down for the raunchy role, and who's his Battleship costar who can't put the book down?!

    Shocker! It's not Rihanna (seriously, we're actually surprised since the singer has a song titled "S&M").

    Turns out, none other than Taylor's costar Brooklyn Decker has indulged in the famed mommy porn! (No word yet on how it's impacted her sex life with hubby Andy Roddick).

    And it was because of Brooklyn's literature choice that Taylor first heard of the sadomasochistic saga:

    "I haven't read it, but Brooks was reading it," Kitsch told Access Hollywood at the Battleship premiere in Los Angeles last night.

    In what is possibly the most fan-fanatic casting couch yet, Taylor's rugged looks and devilish charm have been tossed around a time or two for Christian. And the more we think about Tay's bedroom eyes and subtle smirk, the more we fall in love with the idea—and we're hardly the only ones:

    "It's almost daily that people are asking me [about the book]. I haven't read it yet," Kitsch 'fessed to Access.

    And we're not surprised! After the John Carter disaster and Kitsch's latest action thriller, a sexy, to-die-for role could be the perfect next move for Taylor's career. Let's get some of that famous Friday Night Lights swagger to the big screen, right?

    Unlike A.Skars, Taylor didn't reveal any immediate interest in the part, but we're not surprised all you horny moms are pining for the devilish dude to unleash his inner S&M.

    Either way, there's no denying Mr. Kitsch is the hunky hottie of the moment, and we're desperate to see more of that signature bad boy 'tude on the big screen in both roles.  

    Too bad there's only time for one! So what say you, Awful readers? Taylor Kitsch as Finnick Odair in Catching Fire or as Christian Grey in Fifty Shades?
