Stephen Amell: “I Had a Meeting” About Fifty Shades of Grey (VIDEO)


By Shari Weiss



Is Stephen Amell in the running for Fifty Shades of Grey’s male lead?


The “Arrow” star increased speculation on Thursday, when he posted a video to his Facebook account addressing rumors he’ll star in the highly-anticipated book adaptation.

“I get questions about Christian Grey all the time. That project is a long way off. I know this, because I had a meeting about it,” said Amell. “Long way off.”

The actor then added, “I mean, not that long… but not close. I wouldn’t call it long… but I wouldn’t call it close.”

How… vague.

Still, it’s highly unlikely any cast decisions will be made until a director boards the project, but some stars have thrown their hat into the ring already, while others have made it clear they’re not considering the movie whatsoever.
