Jensen Ackles hasn't been a name on many lips when it comes to actors thought capable of playing Sado-Masochism obsessed billionaire Christian Grey in the 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' movie.

But it appears that the Supernatural star could be making a late run for the part, with What Culture making him their number one choice for the part.

According to Books And Review, the list from the publication read: "Ackles would bring the necessary dark mystique, and he is another actor who has been suggested by fans, he would certainly be a marketing savvy pick, because fans of Supernatural have been calling out for the opportunity to see him in a more erotic role for some time now."

Ackles has until now been rather under the Greydar, not being talked up as much as Ian Somerhalder, Ryan Gosling or Robert Pattinson.

Pattinson was an early favourite for the role due to the book's beginnings as a piece of 'Twilight' fan fiction, however since then Gosling and Somerhalder have emerged as favourites to pick up the whip.

Ackles plays Dean Winchester in 'Supernatural', going after supernatural beings like vampires and fallen angels, meaning he's a dab hand with weapons if not sex toys.

Somerhalder topped our readers' poll of who should play Grey, whilst Gosling has been a favourite with bookmakers.
