    Ryan Gosling!! No doubt about it!!
    To say that I am a fan of the trilogy would be the understatement of the century – you can ask any of my friends. To have the trilogy in hard copies would be fantastic!! Please please…

  17. Anica says:

    Christian Bale

  18. Svetlana says:

    Ryan Gosling, for sure

    I think stuart townsend should play the part ;)

  20. Tracey says:

    James McAvoy

  21. Elene Botha says:

    Eric Dane!! He’s got the serious look as well as the extreme sexiness going for him and who would steam the screen better than THE mcsteamy?!

    Ian Somerhalder or a new-ish guy like Robbie Amell or Jeremy Sumpter

  25. Tanya says:

    Ryan Gosling ;-)

  26. Liesel says:

    I think Christian Bale would be ideal, although Ian Somerholder also has that sexy dark mysterious quality that would make him perfect!

  27. Michelle Gross says:

    To me Robert Downey Jr would be perfect.

    He has the hunky looks as well as that unpredictable dark side to draw inspiration from! He is a brilliant actor!

  28. Raquel says:

    Mmmmm… tough one… how about Jude Law :) Always hunky and definitely mysterious!

  29. Cherezaan Ryklief says:

    Christian Bale definitely or if its more low budget and they aren’t all for acting then Ian Somerhalder. Should definitely be somebody who exudes mystery and success. Christian Bale does such a good job as Bruce Wayne.

    Hugh Jackman!!!

  31. Gayle Botes says:

    3Ryan Gosling :)

  37. inez Valla says:

    My choice would be Timothy Olifant. He acted in Hitman. He also acted in Die Hard 4.0 and I am Number 4. He has a dark, mysterious side and he is a ver good actor. He is sexy and I think he is very underrated. – think he would be perfect for the role because he is different from the mainstream spotlight actors and girls will go nuts over him! :)

    Ian Somerhalder!!!

  39. Tamarin says:

    Alexander Skarsgard

  81. Ashishta Gokhul says:

  82. Lucia says:


  83. Amy says:

    Ian Somerhalder

  84. Karin says:

    Matt Damon

  85. Greg says:

    Easily Joaquin Phoenix.

    Most definitely Ryan Reynolds……..he is the ultimate hunk

  92. Yusrah says:

    Chris Hemsworth would be awesome :D

  93. Dhivanya Moodley says:

    hmm, its a toss up for me between Hugh jackman, Ryan gosling(a fan favorite with respect to previous comments) and Robert Downey Jr. All 3 versatile actors that could adequately portray the dark, brooding and somewhat enigmatic character.

  94. Heidi says:

    Tom Hiddleston would be perfect. He is just so intense.

  95. Cathy Badenhorst says:

    Christian Bale or Robert Downey Jr

  96. Daniela Cardoso says:

  97. liezel says:

    Brad pitt

  98. hasmita says:

    Ryan reynolds!

  99. Ruth says:

    Alexander Skarsgård would be a great choice for the role of Christian. He plays a character of depth in TRUE BLOOD and he would bring the softer side as well as the dark and sombre of Christian. If I hear another “Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson would be perfect for the roles of Christian and Anastasia”, I might just start screaming and throwing myself off the nearest bridge. So over the whole Twilight thing.

  100. webster says:

    i never thought i would say this but i am leaning towards ian somerhalder… but maybe christian bale?

  101. Lee-Anne says:

    Christian Bale – that broody intensity coupled with his gorgeous face would be perfect. He does “tortured by inner demons” thing so well…

  102. nathaniel says:

    Ian Somerhalder

  103. Rabelani says:

    Eric Salter Balfour!!!

  104. Liesl says:

    I think Michael Fassbender would be the perfect actor for this role.

  105. Claudi says:

    I would definately say;

    Joseph Gordan-Levitt
    Chris Hemsworth

    Those would be my top 2.

  106. Brigitte says:

    Ryan Gosling, he’s the perfect choice.

  107. Cari says:

    Ian Somerhalder

  108. sam says:

    Ian somerhalder! ♥
    He’s perfect for the part.

  109. Robyn Merkel says:

    Kevin Costner …….part needs someone who has a little mystery ,yet sexy , yet worldly , elusive all rolled into his personality

  110. Soni says:

    Julian McMahon….one of those guys you love to hate and hate to love types !!
