With producers set for "Fifty Shades of Grey" and the casting process heating up, we're guessing that plenty of actors and actresses are going to start throwing their names into the pot to play Christan Grey and Anastasia Steele in the adaptation of the hit erotic novel. The one man we didn't expect to get in on the action? "The League" comedian Paul Scheer.

The actor posted his "audition tape" to College Humor, but it's clear that he wasn't very prepared to read for the part of Christian. After attempting some of the character's more seductive lines, Scheer kept bursting out laughing and finally had to ask, "What is this book about?"

We didn't know that there was anyone out there who still didn't know that "Fifty Shades of Grey" is the erotic story inspired by "Twilight" that tells the story of two sexy twentysomethings getting it on for 500 pages. »
