Everyone in and out of Hollywood has been hate-reading, love-reading, fantasy casting, parodying and talking non-stop about Fifty Shades of Grey for months now, but we’re still pretty surprised about who has turned out to be the biggest fan of them all: best-selling author Bret Easton Ellis. Since last week the American Psycho scribe has been tweeting about how much he wants to adapt the Twilight-fanfic-inspired BDSM trilogy for the big screen. He’s contacted his agent and everything. Nor does this seem to be a fleeting obsession: Last night, when he could have been tweeting about his real decision to cast Lindsay Lohan opposite porn star James Deen in his movie The Canyons, he was armchair casting Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele instead. His ideas weren’t groundbreaking, but now we’re starting to wonder if they’ll really start gaining traction.
“Rereading Fifty Shades of Grey: it’s hard for me to think of Ian Somerhalder as Christian G. because I’ve known him personally for so long,” he wrote of the Vampire Diaries star, who co-starred in the movie based on Ellis’ The Rules of Attraction. But he added later:
Who is Logan Marshall-Green, you ask? He’s the dude on the right who wore that awesome Balenciaga by Nicholas Ghesquiere suit at the Prometheus premiere last night. He’s starring in the movie as Charlie Holloway, an archaeologist and Noomi Rapace‘s love interest. On the left we have the actor formerly known as Tom Hardy. At least we think it is, because we can’t tell who it really is under that huge bushy beard. Tom’s about to work with Charlize Theron — also starring in Prometheus — in Mad Max: Fury Road, which kicks off production in a few weeks.
We have a theory, though. The guy on the left ain’t Tom Hardy … because Logan Marshall-Green is. Yes, what we’re trying to say is that Logan is secretly Tom. Look at him. He’s more Tom Hardy than Tom Hardy is! Seriously, guys. Jokes aside, you can see this too, right? The resemblance — down to the arched eyebrow and intense stare — is remarkable. Celebrity doppelganger alert! We’re totally on board with this. If there were more guys that looks like Tom-Logan in the world, it would be a better place.
