Chace Crawford has openly campaigned for a role in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

The former Gossip Girl star told Fox News that he is more than up to the task of playing bondage-loving businessman Christian Grey in the El James film adaptation.

Crawford added that he would not be deterred by the graphic sex scenes that Fifty Shades of Grey is likely to include.

"I am only comfortable with S&M sex scenes! »
