Dakota Johnson and Christian Hunnam are set to play the highly coveted roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in the mommy porn movie adaptation of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey.
The best-selling author tweeted that Fifty Shades will be released on August 1, 2014.
Dakota Johnson is probably best known for her role in the short-lived sitcom Ben & Kate. She also has parts in The Social Network, Beastly and 21 Jump Street.
If you think she is familiar but you have not seen any of those movies I mentioned, it’s probably because she is the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson.
She is also an image model for Mango. For their jeans line, me thinks.
Do I think she can be the quiet virgin turned doninatrix Ana Steele? Yes, I think so. Plus, she actually looks good with black hair.
As for the role of billionaire, tormented, hot demigod Christian Grey, I’m disappointed that Charlie Hunnam got the role.
I read all three books and the Grey that lives in my head looks nothing like him.
Charlie Hunnam may be best known for his role in Pacific Rim. He’s currently part of the FX series Sons of Anarchy. *yawns*
I know nothing of his acting prowess (not even sure if he has it) but hey, Fifty Shades is mainly about sex. That and cheesy lines.
I don’t think anyone will mind the casting choice as long as Dakota and Charlie pull off the s&m scenes in the red room of pain.
