Robert Pattinson wants Fifty Shades role?

Twilight star Robert Pattinson is surprised that he isn't in the running to play Christian Grey in the film adaptation of the best-selling books.

In a light-hearted interview, Rob joshed about wanting to play the lead in the movie adaptation of the raunchy novels.

'I think the author has written me out of it after my Edward Cullen role,' said Pattinson to The Chicago Examiner.

The star joked: 'I saw some interview earlier, and they went, oh, it could never be [me] in the part. And I was like, "Hey, I’m going to make you all pay for saying that!"'

Considering that Fifty Shades' characters were loosely based on Twilight's Edward and Bella, it might not be out of the question after all!
