Dancing With the Stars pro Val Chmerkovskiy is ready to take it all off for 50 Shades of Grey.

The professional dancer is game to play Christian Grey in the upcoming erotic romance flick, telling EnStars it is a role he'd "be very comfortable with."

"I've read a few passages from the first book and thought it was pretty extreme, graphic writing, but to be honest, I'd be more comfortable in this role than some others," he revealed at P&G's Everyday Effect event in New York on June 19.

"I would be honored to play Christian," he said, admitting he has a beautiful leading lady in mind.

"I could see myself opposite Rachel McAdams," he grinned. "This would be my version of The Notebook."

(After seeing him shirtless at AZURE Luxury Pool at The Palazzo Las Vegas last month, there's no denying that his ridiculous washboard abs would look pretty good on-screen.)

Chmerkovskiy's comments come on the heels of news that Sam Taylor-Johnson, whose directorial debut was 2009's Nowhere Boy (about the early life of John Lennon), has been secured to direct Fifty Shades Of Grey.

Up next, Chmerkovskiy is gearing up for Dancing With the Stars Season 17. He'll return for ABC's hit dancing show and revealed his dream dance partner: Beyonce.

"Clearly, Beyonce has great work ethic and that's what I'm looking for in a partner," he said.

Although he isn't banking on the Single Ladies singer to actually do DWTS, he hopes to salsa his way to victory and win the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy.

"I just want a partner who is willing to work and has a strong work ethic," he said. "You can be a supermodel, an actress, an athlete... but to be a good partner, you have to be willing to put in the work."

Previously, Chmerkovskiy danced as a professional partner during Season 15 with Season 1 winner, Kelly Monaco. They finished in third place on the season finale. For Season 16, Chmerkovskiy was partnered with Disney Channel's Shake It Up star, Zendaya. The pair came in second place, behind pro Derek Hough and American Idol's Kellie Pickler.
