We’re not quite sure what it is, but for some reason fans of “50 Shades of Grey” seem to be completely enamored with trying to cast some popular TV stars in the lead roles. We have already reported extensively about “The Vampire Diaries” star Ian Somerhalder’s interest in taking on the role of Christian Grey — and Lucy Hale of “Pretty Little Liars” seems to at least be aware that there is buzz out there about her potentially playing the part of Ana.
So is she interested? Based on what the actress told MTV News in an interview, it’s possible that besides the lead role, she may actually have multiple roles in mind if producers for the movie ever decided to approach her about a part.
“People have said that, but people have also said [I could play] the little sister, which I think could make sense, because I look a little young for Ana, but God, what a big role to take on … I’m really curious to see how it’s all going to [play out].”
As great as it would be to see Hale take on a role that was certainly different than Aria, she, like Somerhalder, is a long shot for one key reason when it comes to this film — her production schedule. Filming for “Pretty Little Liars” takes up over half of her year, and they would have to schedule the entire movie’s production around when she is made available. This is why working in television and movies simultaneously is so difficult, and only a few people manage to make it work for several years at a time — though they often choose to leave their TV careers to go into the movies.
Do you think that Hale would be perfect for the part? Be sure to share your thoughts below and check out some more of our coverage of “Pretty Little Liars.”
