Matt Bomer an early fav as Christian Grey.

The casting for the role of Christian Grey for the lead in the 50 Shades of Grey movie is now under early consideration.

That has fans anxious with anticipation on who will land the saucy part in the upcoming film adapted from the best-selling book of the same name.

Many polls have been produced online and as votes are cast and opinions are given fans are taking sides.

The very early frontrunner seems to be 'White Collar' hunk Matt Bomer (pictured above, on video below), followed closely by Vampire Diaries hunk Ian Somerhalder.

Other actors who always seem to get tossed into the mix are Twilight's Robert Pattinson and True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard, and both seem worthy of the role.

Pattinson recently dissed writer EL James, after it seemed she had taken a shot at him, so he may be out of the running.

Ian recently commented on the role and the possibility of who might wind up playing Christian Grey.

"I think that's going to be a very interesting story to tell...It seems like whoever plays that role, it will be very interesting rehearsal time...the audition process is gonna be interesting," Somerhalder said.

Bomer seems to have the early online buzz. (Watch the video below).

Check out this Wikia page for 50 Shades of Grey, it now has a running poll with the top choice now being voted on for the steamy role of the kinky billionaire.

Bomer and Somerhalder are leading the online poll, followed by Henry Cavill, Colin Egglesfield, Chris Pine, William Levy, Alex Pettyfer and more actors fans want to see as Christian.
