Is Matt Bomer officially Christian Grey?
An Entertainment Weekly cover showcasing the Magic Mike actor with a headline, “Fifty Shades of Grey: The Wait is Over” leaked to the Internet. While the photo looks convincing, the cover is nothing but a hoax—at least, for now.
The fan-photoshopped photo also reads:
Matt Bomer talks about changing the white collar for a grey tie.
It was implying that Bomer has closed the deal on being the on-screen Christian Grey, the mysterious but handsome millionaire with a liking for whips and chains in E.L. James’ bestselling book 50 Shades of Grey.
For now, the movie casting is still a wishful thinking, filmmakers say. Dana Brunetti, one of the co-producers of the much-anticipated film adaptation, tweeted her response to the speculations:
All of the rumors on #FiftyShades are just that – rumors. No one has been cast in any role. We have to get a writer and director first.
Guess it was nothing but a false alarm, ladies! Now, calm down.
