Did you know Al Roker and Alex Trebek auditioned for the role of Christian Grey in “Fifty Shades of Grey”? Well, they didn’t, but don’t try to tell Ellen DeGeneres that.

The talk show host revealed hilarious edited versions of Roker and Trebek’s “audition tapes” on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that were actually just interviews with the TV legends cut to make it seem like they were talking about BDSM. If that really is how they audition for roles, both Roker and Trebek should probably look into getting some speech therapy.

The role of Christian Grey ultimately went to Jamie Dornan after Charlie Hunnam dropped the part. The movie is slated for an August 2014 release.
