Paul Scheer

When you think sexy, you think Paul Scheer. Women around the world are eagerly anticipating the adaptation of the Twilight fan fiction turned best-selling novel trilogy that starts with Fifty Shades of Grey. The Social Network producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti are behind the forthcoming adaptation, and while there's been a lot of speculation about who will play successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey, the physical and emotional dominant to impending college graduate Anastasia Steele's submissive personality, I think we have our top candidate in "Human Giant" star Paul Scheer. Watch below!

Here's Paul Scheer's audition for Fifty Shades of Grey, embedded from College Humor:

Honestly, I lost it every time he said "butt stuff," especially as robotic Christian Grey. Frankly, after hearing all about this book series from various women, the only way I would see this movie without the utmost skepticism is if Paul Scheer was cast. At least then we know it's supposed to be a comedy, and it's not just an adaptation of a grocery store erotic novel with a teenager's writing style. Don't get me wrong, with the right director and cast, this could turn into a sultry adaptation of an intimate romance, but the source material certainly leaves something to be desired. But I have faith in Brunetti and De Luca. Oh, and Paul Scheer.

    I hope this movie will be as close to the books as possible. The possibilities for unintentional hilarity would be endless! It's seriously like a book version of all those bad movie spoofs, so this would actually be perfect casting.
