‘Fifty Shade of Grey’ Cast Update

50

While it might not be music related in many sense, but let’s be honest anything can be music related, it looks like the highly anticipated casting of the last year and a half has come to a close.

Today, Fifty Shade of Grey author, E.L. James announced via Twitter who have won the most sought after role of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, and let’s just say that the fans an onlookers a like were split down the middle over the casting decision.

Taking on the role of billionaire and BDSM lover Christian Grey is Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam. With those not familiar with the show, he plays Jax Teller on the FX biker gang program. Taking on the role of the whiny girl that somehow manages to win Grey’s heart, is Dakota Johnson, daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith who’s biggest role was on FOX’s Ben & Kate.

While the new hit the Twitterverse this morning, it looks like it has taken a mind of its own with people, mostly women who read the full series in three-day (we are completely guilty of that) taking to the social media site to express how the feel about the casting and let’s just say, it was all very good.

So, if you have read the erotic series (don’t lie, admitting is the first step) do you think that the casting does the characters in the series any service? Deep down, we’re still hoping that Ian Somerhalder (or Matt Bomer or Henry Cavill) and Alexis Bledel would take over the naughty roles, but one can dream.
