Henry Cavill is one of the hottest and most sought after actors in Hollywood right now. The "Man of Steel" actor is not only a rumored favorite to play Christian Grey in the upcoming movie "Fifty Shades of Grey" but he is also a top contender to play Gideon Cross in the TV adaption of the erotic "Crossfire" series.
Author Sylvia Day recently did an interview for "Good Day Book Club" where she spoke about who she would cast as Gideon Cross and Eva Tramell.
"Superman would make a great one. Henry Cavill, I think he's perfect," Day said.
As far as the leading lady the author said if it was up to her she would pick Scarlett Johansson.
"Eva is a really curvy girl. She's not a waif by any means and Johansson rocks those curves so I think she would be fabulous."
For those who are not familiar with the series, Cross and Tramell are both survivors of childhood sex abuse and come into the relationship with a lot of baggage. In order for the relationship to work the two must open up and confront their dark pasts.
The book has often been compared to "Fifty Shades of Grey" and in both books it involves a young girl who meets and falls in love with a mysterious, extremely handsome billionaire. Just like "Fifty Shades" the "Crossfire" series also has some intense sex scenes.
It's no surprise that Sylvia Day would want Cavill to play as Cross. Since she has put it out there that the "Man of Steel" star is her top contender, he could end up having to choose between playing Anastasia Steele's lover or Eva Tramell's leading man.
When asked if she had any second choices to play Cross, Day said no even though Ian Somerhalder had been a rumored favorite for the role.
