Well when i say in the running i mean he got the chance to audition for the role and a few websites have picked him as a contender. No bragging rights just yet, but hey he got a mention and he’s from Cape Town so let’s give Bryce Thompson some credit hey. Even Cosmopolitan magazine picked him as one of 11 guys who should play Christian Grey in the 50 Shades of Grey movie.
According to the Examiner…
“Bryce Thompson may not (yet) be a favorite for the role of Christian Grey in “Fifty Shades of Grey,” but Team Fifty sees potential in the South African model. Approached to send in an audition tape for the role, Thompson is now in the beginning stages of the casting process, which likely includes a slew of other men” [Examiner]
And Cosmo had this to say..
“This model who we’ve never heard of, but is now on our Slam Piece List, has allegedly auditioned for the role as Christian Grey. COULD HE BE THE CHOSEN ONE?! We can get behind this. ” [Cosmo]
Ya ok so it’s a stretch, but i don’t see anyone from Cape Town or SA for that matter in the running. Either way it’s some good exposure for the guy.
