    UPDATE: It's been some time since we've speculated about who should nab the much-coveted role of Christian Grey (since summer, in fact), but that doesn’t mean we forgot about the 50 Shades of Grey bad boy (or that the sultry novel has lost any steam). After all, dreaming up the perfect cast has become pretty darn addictive, especially since author E.L. James still remains tight-lipped about her ideal lineup. To keep the guessing game going, we added 11 more guys to the list who could step into the undoubtedly big shoes of Mr. Grey. This story was originally posted on August 3.

    While not all of us are Fifty Shades fans (or enthusiastic about the 50+ businesses piggy-backing on the book's popularity), that doesn't mean we don't a) like the open discussion about sexuality the book is bringing about and b) love imagining what actors will play the fictional characters. In fact, we can't help ourselves from weighing in on the role that almost all of America is talking about.

    So, to indulge in a little TGIF procrastinating of the smokeshow kind, we break down the choice contenders, dividing our dudes into three sections: those who are being bandied about as possibilities, but won't do it; the actors we would love to see as CG (but aren't as likely to be cast), and the safe bets for both the studios and the fans.

    Do you agree with picks? Regardless, you've got to admit: This lineup of potential Christian Greys certainly aren't too hard on the eyes, right?
