Wow! Some big Hollywood casting news today! Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James set twitter abuzz this morning when she announced who would play the much talked about leads in the big screen adaptation of her hit books. First she announced that Dakota Johnson, daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, would be playing the role of Anastasia Steele tweeting;
I am delighted to let you know that the lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.
Then she followed it but by giving us the big reveal and finally confirming who landed the coveted role of Christian Grey by tweeting;
The gorgeous and talented Charlie Hunnam will be Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.
Well that wasn’t so much of a surprise since we’d heard those rumblings already but I have to say I am so happy that he got the role! I like this casting a lot – they look like they’ll make the perfect Ana and Christian. What do you think?
