Katie Couric asked fans and readers of the kinky book "Fifty Shades of Grey" to vote for the stars they'd like to see play billionaire Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele on the big screen. The fan favorites? Ian Somerhalder and Alexis Bledel.

"The Vampire Diaries" hunk and former "Gilmore Girls" actress were the clear winners over the likes of Ashley Greene ("Twilight"), Emma Stone ("The Help"), Ryan Gosling ("The Notebook") and Alexander Skarsgard ("True Blood").

Author E.L. James appeared on "Katie" on Monday and said she has her own wish list, but she's keeping it secret. "I have three people who I think could play Christian and about four people who could be Ana," she teased.

The steamy book details a masochistic relationship between a college student and a businessman, whose desires for extreme intimacy pen from secrets in his past.
