These two have been linked together for a while, especially after costarring in "The East" together and showing some suspicious PDA on red carpets and in public.

But 36-year-old Skarsgard recently slammed the dating rumors, telling the German edition of OK! magazine, "Ellen and I are friends."

 

"If I was really dating every woman I've been linked to, I would never be out of bed!" he joked.

So much for that, but it doesn't mean they can't star in a movie together. Fans know they have great chemistry on and off-screen.

Skarsgard has always been a fan-favorite for 27-year-old sexy billionaire and BDSM-crazed Christian Grey.

His brooding looks and grey eyes in playing "True Blood" character Eric Northman is how he won over many fans, and this is why they want him to play Christian Grey.

 

At Comic-Con San Diego 2012, he revealed to fans that he hasn't read the book nor has he been offered a casting part.

According to TheStir.CafeMom.com, he recently admitted that he would play the much-coveted role of Christian Grey.

And when asked about that possibility by ET Canada, Skarsgard responded with, "Of course. It's a great script."

Back in 2012, Skarsgard said, "Where do I sign," reported by Cafemom.com when "Fifty Shades" talk was in a premature stage. "He's got a sex chamber? My character [Eric Northman] has that on 'True Blood.' He's got a little dungeon. I was born to play that part."

According to the Examiner, in November 2012, when asked if he would be comfortable playing Christian in E.L. James' film adaption, he responded, "Absolutely. Me playing Christian wouldn't be an issue. I even have a sex chamber in my basement-my "True Blood" character does-so I've had [the necessary] training."

No, she doesn't seem like a likely candidate to play the submissive 22-year-old innocent college grad Anastasia Steele, but fans think she could pull off the role.

 

TheStir.CafeMom included Page in its top 10 potentials for Ana, but said "the Canadian actress is entirely too snarky for the role of a submissive, and too self-assured to be the mouse who falls into Christian Grey's office. We love her for her strength, and that would be hard to see disappear."

E! Online also included Page in its top 5 list of actress, saying: "She'd need some blue contacts and might seem like an unlikely choice, but we could totally see the Juno star getting into those jeans. The 26-year-old actress has the fair complexion, full lips (all the better for biting the lower one-oh my!) and obviously the skill (she was nominated for an Academy Award in 2008) to transform from a shy, mousy college student to Mr. Grey's favorite sub."
