O-M-G the news of the summer has finally been revealed on the last day of summer! The two actors who will play main characters Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele of the popular book series ’50 Shades of Grey’ have finally been revealed!
Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) will play the dashing Christian Grey…I still don’t know how I feel about this.
Dakota Johnson…never even heard of her is playing the role of Anastasia Steele. I honestly don’t how I feel about this pairing…but I trust the production team and I can’t wait to see these two in full costume. Woohoo!
What do you guys think of these two? She actually looks older than I thought for Anastasia but turns out she’s only 24! And Charlie Hunnam who we all know as bad boy Jackson on Sons of Anarchy will have to clean up major to play Christian!
Ah! This is exciting news for all the 50 Shades fans out there. Not a huge fan of the books, but I am super excited for the film adaptation, especially because there are so many names floating around about who will play Christian Grey.
Garrett Hedlund was offered the role of Grey, but apparently turned it down because he didn’t want to commit to the eventual sequels. This is the first legitimate report coming out of production talks. His name wasn’t even on the list for potential actors to play Grey, so this came as a huge surprise. Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer and Henry Cavill have been in most of the rumours.
As the film is set to release in August 14, production should be starting anytime, and it will be any day now that the full cast list is revealed. I’m surprised they’ve kept it a secret this long.
At Comic Con 2013, E.L James said Ian Somerhalder will not get the part of Christian Grey.
