Lindsay Lohan Canyons co-star James Deen wants 50 Shades of Grey movie

By
Lindsay Lohan's Canyons co-star James Deen has pitched himself to appear in the Fifty Shades of Grey film adaptation.

The adult film star suggested that he would be the ideal choice to play Christian Grey, a businessman who explores bondage and sexual taboos with a young woman.

"It seems like a character I could have a lot of fun with," Deen commented to Entertainment Weekly. "I've heard really mixed responses about it, like, 'Oh, it's a cheesy wannabe'... [but] I think it could be fun. I feel like it could be a really cool, fun role to work on."

Deen went on to admit it's unlikely he will land the highly-coveted role due to his background in pornography.

"I'm that porn guy," he joked. "As I understand, the rumours [for Christian] are some guy who's on a TV show on USA [Matt Bomer], some model dudes, and Ryan Gosling.

"I feel like me versus Ryan Gosling? There's an easy decision on where the studio is going to go. But if I got offered the role, I would definitely consider it. If they wanted me to audition, I would absolutely go in and read for them."

The role of Fifty Shades of Grey's female lead Ana Steele is also highly coveted, with Mila Kunis, Shailene Woodley and Emilia Clarke reportedly in the running.
