The film adaptation of E.L. James' "Fifty Shades of Grey" has been generating a plethora of rumors in regards to who'll ultimately land the role of the S&M-crazed billionaire Christian Grey. 

While he's been brought up previously in several occasions, the latest buzz has once again pinpointed Aussie Chris Hemsworth as the frontrunner for the racy part.

The "Thor" actor is apparently a favorite to land the highly demanded part, according to the Herald Sun, Hemsworth has reportedly has been on top of the list on a majority of fan websites for the erotica flick, even beating out the likes of "True Blood's" Alexander Skarsgard, "Twilight's" Robert Pattinson, and "White Collar's" Matt Bomer, along with several other notable candidates.

The 29-year-old is set to appear in the upcoming biographical action film "Rush."  In the Formula One racing flick, Hemsworth plays James Hunt and partakes in several steamy sex scenes. Director Eric Fellner even summed it up as "naked shagging."

In terms of his attributes, Hemsworth is strikingly similar to Grey in respect to his blue eyes, which would serve to seduce Anastasia Steele's character into following him into the "Red Room of Pain," allowing the billionaire to act out his fantasies.

In an interview that was conducted in May, Celebuzz asked the actor about the possibility of being considered for the highly popular role.  It appeared as though he wasn't too familiar with the "Fifty Shades" books and wasn't sure if he'd be willing to don the explicit part.

"Ah, no someone mentioned it to me ... I was like, 'What is it?  I dunno, maybe I'm interested.'  I'm not going to say anything. I haven't read the book," Hemsworth said.

On the contrary, different reports said Hemsworth has already "read some parts of the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' books privately," according to International Business Times. The actor was also quoted saying that the racy read is both "forced and awkward to some extent."

Only time will truly tell who James and her producers will end up casting for the Grey role. Casting aside, screenwriter Kelly Marcel is currently hard at work penning the popular book into a big screen script.
