As if Ryan Gosling could get any hotter, now comes word that the super-sexy actor might be up for his most sizzling role yet—Christian Grey!
According to reports, the husband of Fifty Shades of Grey author E. L. James is dishing that Gosling is in talks for the lead role in the upcoming big screen adaptation of the erotic novel.
Cue the swooning.
James' hubby Niall Leonard tells the U.K.'s Now magazine that the "last he heard" Gosling is the No. 1 choice to play Christian Grey.
Reps for the 31-year-old Drive star did not immediately comment on the casting rumors, but we're sure every lady around is saying, "Yes!" to this idea.
Since it was announced there was a Fifty Shades of Grey flick in the works, the Internet has been buzzing with possible celeb casting ideas. Vampire Diaries hunk Ian Somerhalder has even very publically expressed interest in playing the role of Grey.
"I absolutely would be up for that," Somerhalder has said. "Absolutely. That would be a pretty incredible thing. And hopefully that could pan out, I think."
Meanwhile, Leonard denied to Now that his wife based the character of Grey on him. "I'm glad I'm not him because he's actually damaged," Leonard said. "I wouldn't have liked to go through what he went through."
Now the question is: Who should play Anastasia Steele to Gosling's Grey?!
