Watch John Oliver Audition for 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

"Hello, I’m Christian Grey, epitome of male beauty."

John Oliver is hurt that he was not contacted to audition for the role of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey. However, he didn't let the fact that the movie has already been made stop him from auditioning.

Oliver (sort of) apologized for the #NotMyChristian hashtag about actor Jamie Dornan, explaining that his "real complaint is Hollywood's unimaginative casting." Why didn't anyone take a risk and think to put Oliver in the leading role? He didn't read the book and everything. "It hurts not to have even been asked," said the late-night host, whose show Last Week Tonight returns on Feb. 8.
