Yesterday while I was enjoying the end of summer in the Hamptons, I basically chocked on my poolside cocktail when I got a text saying that the roles of Anastasia and Christian were cast for the upcoming 50 Shades of Grey movie. We’ve all been speculating this whole time, and to my complete shock, I didn’t see either of these actors — Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam, respectively — coming at all.
And apparently neither did author E.L. James (kind of…) I hear that earlier this year, Bret Easton Ellis (who wrote The Canyons) was at Robert Pattinson‘s house-party with E.L. and she told him that her first choice for Christian was the Twilight actor. But alas, they ultimately went with Charlie.
Are you excited about these two playing the roles, or do you wish someone like Robert or Ian Somerhalder had gotten the part? Tell me in a comment below!
