There's been plenty of speculation about who will be cast as the tall, dark, and handsome Christian Grey in the eventual (an official release date hasn't been announced) movie. There are fake trailers featuring would-be leading men and women floating around the Internet, which have prompted some stars to publicly state that they would definitely not be in the movie. In the words of Emma Watson on Twitter: "Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life."

Well, fine with us, because as any 50 Shades fan knows, the casting of the movie could make or break it. And after all this waiting, it'd better be good. It's pretty much impossible to read all three books with out developing strong feelings about Mr. Mercurial and that means we can't just have any old actor tramping around the set. We've put some serious thought into the issue, and here are a few guys who should definitely not play Christian Grey now or ever.

No matter what he does, he'll always be Edward to us.

Yes, it's true that the 50 Shades of Grey series started as Twilight fan fiction. But Edward is definitely not the same character as Christian. For starters, Christian is not a vampire. He doesn't even like blood! (Really, it's in the book.) And besides, even author E.L. James has said she wouldn't want him as Christian.
