Rumors are swirling that Henry Cavill may be putting on a different kind of suit for the erotic drama’s anticipated sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, so ET’s Carly Steel went straight to the source to try and crack the case.
“How can I make this interesting?” thestar coyly said when asked to address the casting rumors at The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’s press junket on Tuesday. “I think it’s probably best that I say nothing for now.”
And getting the 32-year-old hunk to spill the beans by offering to use “one of those electrical devices” from Fifty Shades won’t work either.
“It doesn’t work on me,” the charming Brit said. “I’m non-conductive.”
Cavill is reportedly being eyed to play Jack Hyde, Anastasia Steele’s (Dakota Johnson) new boss, who takes an immediate liking to her. If it all comes to fruition and Cavill officially signs up, it’d be one hot matchup between Cavill and Christian Grey himself,Jamie Dornan!
Even though the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star kept things close to the vest when it came to Fifty Shades Darker, Cavill has at least one fan ready to buy a ticket: his Man From U.N.C.L.E. co-star Armie Hammer.
“Just do it,” said Hammer, who was, funnily enough, once rumored to be in the mix to play Christian.
“At this time, I’m not allowed to say anything,” Cavill said.
Hmm, not allowed? That’s not exactly a no, Mr. Cavill. So well-behaved.
