Fifty Shades Of Grey could have a leading man in the shape of Jake Gyllenhaal, according to the actor himself!

Sporting his bushy beard (check out the video here), Jake told Ryan Seacrest’s radio show that he was unaware he’d been linked to the role of Christian Grey:

“That’s super flattering. I mean, I have not heard that, but if that’s true then that’s a nice thing. It’s always nice to be considered. Yeah, of course [I’d consider it]! I always want to work, man, of course.”

We think he might need a shave first… BS
