50 shades of grey – fans say NO NO to actor choice!

Fifty Shades of Grey fans launch online petition

And this is what they say……

Matt Bomer is the PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF CHRISTIAN GREY AND ALEXIS BLEDEL IS THE PERFECT ACTRESS TO REPRESENT ANASTASIA STEELE and if THEY ARE NOT, NOBODY WILL BE And I read the whole trilogy and I can assure that Matt is the perfect actor for this movie and Alexis too. So please PLEASE, all of the GREYsessed and Bomerettes in the world NEED those actors. They always will be for us the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. WE CAN DO ANYTHING GUYS, ANYTHING.

Angry fans of  Fifty Shades of Grey have taken to the campaigning web platform Change.org to express their discontentment  at the casting of Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson in Sam Taylor-Johnson’s forthcoming film adaptation.   More than 50,000 fans have joined the forum to express their opinions and it is growing even more!  as they want Matt Bomer and Alxis Bledel.

Matt Boner

Alexis Bledel

Author EL James, whose steamy novel has sold more than 70m copies worldwide, revealed on Monday that Hunnam and Johnson had been cast as kinky billionaire Christian Grey and blushing virgin Anastasia Steele. The announcement, made on Twitter, ended more than 18 months of furious speculation, but left some fans unhappy.

Fifty Shades of Grey producer Dana Brunetti tried to assuage fan anger. “There is a lot that goes into casting that isn’t just looks,” he tweeted. “Talent, availability, their desire to do it, chemistry with other actor, etc. So if your favourite wasn’t cast, then it is most likely due to something on that list. Keep that in mind while hating and keep perspective.”

The novelist Bret Easton Ellis, who last year mounted a high-profile but ultimately unsuccessful campaign to have himself installed as screenwriter for the project, revealed that neither Bomer nor another fan favourite, Ian Somerhalder, were ever in the running for the role of Christian. “EL James and I were at Rob Pattinson’s house when she admitted that Rob was first choice for Christian. Ian Somerhalder never in running,” he tweeted. “Matt Bomer was [also] never in the running.”

Universal closed the trilogy deal with Hunnam, 33, and his on-screen love Dakota Johnson, 23, by Labor Day after testing the two actors’ chemistry.

Johnson, like Hunnam, was a big letdown to some readers eager to see Alexis Bledel, Elizabeth Olson or Shailene Woodley play Anastasia Steele.

The controversy and debate regarding the casting will likely continue for months, but they’re here to stay with an August 1, 2014 release date looming.

50 shades of grey – Maxim thoughts

Maxim would cast apparently a book they have never read and a film they will never watch!  I bet a little bit of smut on the big screen with your misses and hey hoe….. who knows what the night will bring, listen lads you will queue up to see with your misses and even though you may feign “Not a chance in hell”  “YOU DON’T REALLY MEAN IT.”

CHRISTIAN GREYHere’s what we know about “Christian Grey” from briefly scrolling through the 50 Shadeswiki page (3,444 words!) on the toilet: He’s 27, he’s attractive, he’s into BDSM, he’s rich, and, uh, that seems to be the entire depth of his character. Still, fuck it, let’s get casting!Ron Perlman

He will look great in the red room match the walls


Anastasia is described as a 21-year-old college senior with blue eyes, brown hair, and – and we’re just guessing here – low self esteem.

Sasha Grey

A porn star who also has some legit acting credits, and whose name is actually “Grey”? Come on, guys, it’s not that difficult! How much do casters get paid? Is it more than us? We’re guessing yes. We’re also asking if there are any jobs available, because we’ve got this shit down.

And finally Maxim think ……..

50 shades of grey

50 shades of grey love it or hate it will soon by a film!

Well its out there now, I am sure everyone is aware of the book but if not here is a quick run through, Virgin girl meets randy man, virgin girl wants randy man, randy man (who happens to be mega rich wants virgin girl.  KEEP UP.   He is kinky, gets her to agree to the kinkiness, slap, spank..or er misses.  BOO HOO…she can’t cope,  she gets a car whoop whoop……..its all over it’s the end of the first book…….saved you 7 pounds there and pages and pages of some shitty writing,  but that’s just my opinion!

Rumours have flown round who will play Christian Grey from Bryce Thompson,  Alex Pettyfer and not forgetting Robert J Pattinson, all of who I think would embrace the role and flash the pecs.

Bryce Thompson

Alex Pettyfer

And I could tell you story about Mr Pettyfer the night  a bunch of girlfriends were have a very good night out as we like to enjoy ourselves, we were lodging in a very nice holiday place in England and who would be on the next table but Mr Pettyfer who at that point was very young.  Telling us about what he did we took it with a pinch of salt as we did not know, little did we know! On returning and talking to daughters and checking out IMDB there was he…Well I never says all of us! and we have the photos to prove it!

Robert J Pattinson erm nooooooo…..

Well here it is the news we have all been waiting for, or not as the case may be.

Dakota Johnson will be playing Anastasia Steele and Charlie Hunnam will be Christian Grey

Mummy and Daddy I wonder what they think?

Here is Charlie bless

Charlie is  British..whoop whoop, and he is one of the stars in the dark biker thriller Sons Of Anarchy as Jackson ‘Jax’ Teller.

He was in  Queer As Folk, on which he played gay teenager Nathan Maloney.

Practice for his role

Apparently Producer Michael De Luca tweeted on Monday that Dakota and Charlie showed great promise when they auditioned for the roles together: ‘Auditions were stunning, incredible chemistry!’ he wrote.

Show it off: Charlie Hunnam has starred on FX’s Sons Of Anarchy since 2008
