Ryan Gosling has long been on our list of actors who should play Christian Grey in the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie, and it looks like someone might've taken notice.
According to the U.K. magazine Now, the husband of "Fifty Shades" author E.L. James, Niall Leonard, has said that the "last he heard" Gosling was one of the names mentioned in regards to who could play the sexy lead.
But who knows - Leonard could've "heard" that a long, long time ago. Reps for author James told CNN they didn't have a comment on the rumor, and Gosling's reps have yet to respond.
If this were to happen, though, we bet Universal, the studio behind the upcoming film, would have a mega-hit on its hands.
Check out who else we'd cast as Christian Grey in the gallery above.
