The actor discusses the possibility of snagging the coveted and risqué role

Now that Gossip Girl has finished its run, Chace Crawford's calendar is ready to be filled. The actor shares that he would look forward to playing Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey film, if he got the opportunity.

The actor, 27, shares with Fox News, “Hey, if they ask me to come and read, I would definitely do so. I don’t even know what the character is like; I haven’t read anything or heard anything about it!”

The film adaption of E.L. James' novel is highly anticipated, with fans worldwide dying to know who will play the role of the charming bad-boy Grey.

He continues, “I would love the challenge. I have not read the books, but what I know is that it is risqué, and to be honest, anything to shake up from the way I have been going would be good.”

However, the role infamously includes a large part of 'S&M' sexual scenes. While some actors may shy away from the part, Perez Hilton reports that Crawford says, “I am only comfortable with S&M sex scenes! The other ones are just too simple and boring for me … I actually think, whether it is a sex scene, or screaming at something to get something across, I think it is kind of attacked the same way, and you’re in the work mode, and you stay professional. It has never been awkward or intimidating to me.”

There has been no official word on who will be portraying the lead roles for the film.
