    For now though, any confirmation of the casting is cryptic but it’s enough to get us all very excited! The latest speculation started after Twitter user, @BookTemptations posted a photo of the Vampire Diaries star clad in a mask next to a quote from Fifty Shades Darker.

    The hit trilogy’s author, E.L. James responded to the tweet with a wide-grinned happy face – and in our world that’s proof enough that she’s keen to see Ian take on the role of Christian Grey.
