t seems everyone has a different favourite to play the role of Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of ‘Fifty Shade Of Grey’, yet more than most apparently are plumping for Batman star Christian Bale.
In a Facebook poll for The Periscope Post, Bale took 33% of the vote, with a third of men and women wanting ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ star to take on the role.
Seeing as this is a group that tend to be fans of the Batman films, perhaps they don’t like the idea of their hero swapping his cowl for S&M gear.
Of the 2,229 people surveyed, 17% thought heartbroken Robert Pattinson should put Kristen Stewart behind him by taking things out on whoever plays Anastasia Steele.
Lagging slightly behind were heart throbs Ryan Gosling and Michael Fassbender on 14% and 11% of the vote respectively.
Chris Rock was the actor people least wanted to see in the red room of pain, clocking only 3% of the vote.
Thomas D. Gommes, Founder and Publisher of The Periscope Post said: “Handsome, young and charming Christian Bale has the ideal characteristics needed for the role of Christian Grey.
“Men want to be him and women want to be with him – it is therefore no surprise he took a 1/3 of the votes.”
Entertainmentwise’s own poll saw Ian Somerhalder top the vote with 27%, with Gosling and Pattinson again registering high voteshares in second and third place
