'New Girl's' Max Greenfield 'ready and available' for '50 Shades'

Max Greenfield earned an Emmy nod for his portrayal of Schmidt on "New Girl," and he has no doubt more nominations would roll in if he landed the role of Christian Grey in the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie.

Greenfield, who walked the Emmys red carpet Sunday in custom Brooks Brothers - "tailored within an inch of his life," as his wife Tess Sanchez told E! - said that he'd be happy to drop trou for "Fifty Shades" on the  big screen.

Full frontal? "Yeah, that’s not a problem. That’s not the issue," Greenfield said. "It’s whether they want to see that much intensity on screen. I don’t know who’s involved with it right now, but I’m ready and available."

If Greenfield did nab the role, "what a magical movie" it would be, he deadpanned. "I’ll see you at the Oscars."

    I just looked at IMDB and it looks like nobody's attached to a 50 Shades of Grey yet and nobody's been cast yet.
    Let's do it for them

    Who do you think should play the main characters and why?

    There is really only one choice to play the Christian Gray role today – Matt Bomer.

    NO. NO. He couldn't pull it off. I think he's a great actor, just not Christian Grey. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?
    Go see if Stan Lee is available. He'd do a better job!!
