'Fifty Shades Of Grey': James Deen Hopes To Star In Film Adaptation

Porn star James Deen has become the latest actor to express a desire to play erotic novel favourite Christian Grey on the silver screen.

Deen, who recently teamed up with Lindasy Lohan for erotic thriller 'The Canyons', suggested he would be an ideal choice to star in the film adaption of E.L James' 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'.

He told Entertainment Weekly: "I feel like it could be a really cool, fun role to work on."

However, he did admit he's unlikely to get the role if he's up against Hollywood's favourite leading men: "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."

Deen certainly has the sexual prowess that will be required for the role, as an adult film star he already has nearly 4,000 credits with sex scenes on camera.

However, his cross over into mainstream films has yet to have been greeted with welcome arms. It's has been reported his collaboration with Lohan in 'The Canyons' has been turned down by festival SXSW, after already being passed up by Sundance Film Festival over what are described politely as "quality issues".

The Hollywood Reporter quotes an insider at the Austin, Texas festival, who said Paul Schrader's film has "an ugliness and a deadness to it".
