Ed Westwick is a top contender for the Christian Grey role in the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie.

"She's the right age for the role and has the right look, but maybe some fans are hesitant about her because they still remember her as a child actress in movies like Nancy Drew and Hotel for Dogs. However, Emma Roberts is definitely proving that she's all grown up with some of her recent roles. In the movie Adult World, she plays an aspiring poet who ends up working at an adult book store. The role probably isn't that raunchy, but maybe she at least learned a bit about the kinds of sex toys and kinky sex that will be featured in the 50 Shades of Grey movie," the report said about Roberts.


But Roberts may be "too busy" to play 22-year-old innocent recent college grad Ana Steele because of her new movies and role in Fox TV series "Delirium," which is also based on a popular book.

Speaking of the lead roles of the film adaption of E.L. James' popular erotic novel, "Gossip Girl" Ed Westwick is leading in a new poll for 27-year-old sexy billionaire Christian Grey.

In a poll by WetPaint, Westwick is currently leading the fan poll with 43 percent while fan-favorite Matt Bomer trails close behind with 32 percent.

Females are swooning over the 25-year-old "Gossip Girl" star, known as Chuck Bass on the popular CW show.

Gather Entertainment said that Westwick is the "perfect age" to play Christian, and it's a plus that he doesn't have a lot on his plate right now. said of Westwick, "Having watched Ed Westwick thrive at the part of the wealthy, troubled, and emotionally shut off Chuck Bass for four seasons, I see a lot of Grey in the character and really think the British actor (like Rob Pattinson! Too perfect) could pull it off. Westwick has mastered the rich weirdo persona all too well and wouldn't have to do all that much work to portray Grey."
