50 Shades of Grey Casting Announcement!

on Sep 03, 2013 @ 11:00 am

Sooooooo... drumroll please! The casting for the 50 Shades of Grey film has been announced and it's a little surprising. 

For Christian Grey, Charlie Hunnam was chosen and for Anastasia Steele, Dakota Johnson. Now, Charlie is hot but from what I hear, his light, blonde looks aren't exactly brooding Christian material and I'll be honest, I'm not totally sure who this Dakota is. Can someone enlighten me?

What do you think of the casting???

that's saying something on Sep 03, 2013 @ 11:09 am

I think it's telling that they hired people we have not seen before, especially considering who were rumoured to have been approached/had declared their interest in participating. Perhaps the producers are anticipating the film critics' responses to the movie (since book critics have been really harsh on the books) and don't want to spend the money on A-listers.

I agree with you mamaluv, with the critics bashing the books so much (can't say I blame them) what would be the point in paying top dollar for A listers. I can't even see how they can adapt the books into a movie. A whole bunch of Christian reaching his hand out and saying "come" and glaring and Ana picking up sex toys and having no idea what they are...that's like 80% of the books. I just don't think it's going to be worth while.

I am completely excited on Sep 05, 2013 @ 08:57 am

I LOVE Charlie Hunnam! I love Sons of Anarchy and I think he is just soooo sexy! I think he will be fantastic in this role, my dream come true! I don't know who Dakota is but it doesn't really matter because I will be imagining it is me the whole time anyway! lol

Who is Dakota Johnson? on Sep 05, 2013 @ 03:58 pm

Dakota Johnson is Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith's daughter.

Disappointed on Sep 06, 2013 @ 11:51 am

I like both of these actors, but I'm not sure that they fit the part. It's definitely not who I imagined when I was reading the books

I do love Charlie human he is incredibly sexy and intense, but im not sure I would have chosen Dakota for Anastasia, doesn't seem like a good fit to me!

Wait and see on Sep 07, 2013 @ 06:09 pm

Not sure I like their actor choices, but I hope they get into the characters raw emotions to make it feel believable. Loved the books and I am looking forward to watching the movie. Hope it's worth the watch.
