"Fifty Shades of Grey" movie buzz continues to heat up the Internet at an astounding rate over who will play the role of Christian Grey continues to heat up the Internet.  One of the actors for the part of the S&M-billionaire that's been continuously brought up is Ian Somerhalder of "The Vampire Diaries."

Since the very first announcement that E.L. James' racy read was being  adapted for the big screen, the 34-year-old has been constantly mentioned as their desired Christian among many of the erotica's loyalists.

The television star has continued to address the countless rumors of him being casted for the "Fifty Shades of Grey" flick. 

While Somerhalder is undoubtedly interested in donning the role of Grey, he also explained that the lingering chatter is just rumors at best for now, according to Mr Porter.

"Oh man, there's nothing official.  It's just talk.  Yeah, there's a website you can go to where you can just outfit your basement as a dungeon.  So, you know, I thought I'd get prepared, just in case," he said.

Somerhalder recently raised eyebrows when he tweeted that if his fans could "donate or raise $50 or more before 1/9 through his foundation page, then they could "Win my personal copy of 50 Shades with a personal note :). Help ISF win the MFC."

In just over a day's time, the post on Twitter was retweeted 2,589 times and obtained 2,000 favorites. While the donations continued to come in at a rapid pace for a shot at Somerhalder's personally penned "Fifty Shades of Grey" novel, rumors had begun to ignite that maybe the message he wrote would reveal that he's the chosen one for the Grey role, which has yet to be verified.

Many "Fifty Shades" fans feel that the 34-year-old has the perfect look to pull off the CEO role with his deep blue eyes and brunette mane.  To top it off, Somerhalder continues to effectively play a similar part as the "bad boy" in his CW vampire series.
