Our Shiny, Grey, Two Cents
Fifty Shades of Grey fans everywhere are all abuzz over last week’s casting announcement, and we’re no exception.
At our bi-weekly writing meeting last Wednesday, Jude and I had a surprisingly short discussion of the picks.
Charlie Hunnam: He’s hot. He’s young. He’s got a rockin’ bod. He’ll DO JUST FINE, people. Honestly, I can’t believe there’s a petition to change the casting. Ridiculous. I’m honestly glad they didn’t go with someone more well-known, because I think it would take some of the mystique out of the character. Maybe I personally have an easier time imagining Charlie as Christian because I haven’t seen any of his other work. Here’s one of my favorite pics that I’ve found:
Or this one:
And Dakota Johnson as Anastasia? Same deal. Color her hair a little darker, and it will be fine. Again, glad they’re not going with some of the more popular fan picks.
No matter who was cast, there were going to be pissed-off fans. So who cares? The only thing we care about is the forward momentum. Casting the two leads puts us that much closer to filming, which puts us that much closer to watching.
