Fans of erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey
are calling for Cork actor Cillian Murphy
to star as billionaire Christian Grey in a movie based on the book.
But the Batman star admits he hasn’t even read E.L. James’ bestselling novel, in which the complicated romantic hero, with a taste for leather whips, seduces college graduate Anastasia Steele.
“I haven’t read the book,” Cillian (36) told Wall Street Journal. “I know everyone’s talking about it. The thing is, it’s kind of random how you get jobs, you know?” Ryan Gosling
and Robert Pattinson
are two other actors fans would like to see play Grey. Angelina Jolie
(37) is said to be in talks to direct the film version.
