Never Say Never with Justin Bieber starring in 50 Shades

JUSTIN BIEBER is the latest name to be thrown into the hat to play Christian Grey, according to Ladbrokes.

Following his appearance on The Jonathan Ross show where the Canadian star joked about playing Christian Grey in the upcoming movie, the bookies believe he might be getting a bit ahead of himself as he’s been given an outside chance of 100/1 to play the dominant.

Ryan Gosling (2/1) remains the favourite to take the lead role, followed closely in the betting by Ian Somerhalder (5/2), Cilian Murphy (3/1) and Matt Bomer (3/1).

It’s Black Swan star Mila Kunis who the firm expect to play Ana Steele at 3/1, however as rumours continue to circulate around Katie Cassidy her odds have been repeatedly slashed to just 4/1 (from 10/1).

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “You should never say never, but in this instance it looks safe to say that Bieber will never play Christian Grey in the movie.”
