Dakota Johnson Couldn't Stop Crying When She Got Fifty Shades Of Grey Role

Dakota Johnson revealed during an interview with Entertainment Weekly that she couldn’t stop crying when she landed the Fifty Shades of Grey role. Poor thing. She has no idea what she’s in for.

She told EW, “I was just so relieved. I was crying and crying. Water was literally squirting out of my eyes because I had been so stressed out. And there’s this giant Doberman Pincher laying on the bed next to me. And he just slowly fell asleep. It was so special and [this dog] didn’t give a f— about me and what I was going through.”

Fifty Shades Of Grey NC-17 Version To Be Released In Theaters

Fifty Shades Of Grey NC-17 Version To Be Released In Theaters

Reading Fifty Shades of Grey, it’s almost difficult to imagine how the source material could be brought down to a Rated R. Nowadays, it’s a rarity to even see sex in movies, with large studios preferring to keep the material tame to ensure a PG-13 rating and maximize their box office potential.

However, there is simply no way to get a PG-13 rating on Fifty Shades of Grey. Not only would the fans be furious, but a legitimate adaptation of the movie’s hard enough to make into an R, much less Pg-13. But really, wouldn’t a more loyal adaptation of the film be NC-17? Read More Here »

Jamie Dornan And Billy Magnussen Screen Tested For Christian Grey

Universal is slowly narrowing down the search for Christian Grey after Charlie Hunnam surprised everyone by dropping out last week. The studio has several names on their casting wish list, including big names like Alexander Skarsgard [who they're never going to get], but it’s been reported by the Hollywood Reporter that Jamie Dornan and Billy Magnussen have screen tested opposite leading lady Dakota Johnson for the part.

Dornan is best known for The Fall, whereas Magnussen was just nominated for a Tony. Clearly, they’ve got chops, even if nobody’s heard of them. That seems to be Universal’s game plan for the role – get actors that are critically Read More Here »

Charlie Hunnam Tries to Appeal to Fans to Accept Him As Christian Grey

Charlie Hunnam, that guy the one cast for to play Christian Grey, the male lead in “Fifty Shades of Grey”, has come out today appearing to be unfazed by all the criticism directed his way. That is if you call selflessly promoting himself as unfazed.

The Sons of Anarchy star was out promoting his hit TV series when of course some reporter had to bring up his upcoming film role. Thank for staying on point, guys. Never mind them what we should zoom in on is Charlie’s response. The one where he dropped hints here and there about his filming on “Queer as a Folk”. For some who don’t remember the television show he’s referring to, was well, known for its provocative sex scenes back in the day.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Producers Defend Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson Casting Decision In The Face of Backlash

Fifty Shades Of Grey Producers Defend Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson Casting Decision In The Face of Backlash

There has been a LOT of backlash over Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson being cast in Fifty Shades of Grey, to which I ask the fans: really?! I know they really, really wanted either Henry Cavill or Matt Bomer for Christian Grey and Alexis Bledel or Emilia Clarke for Anastasia Steele, and I hate to be the bringer of bad news, but there was NO way that the film would have landed those guys. First of all, they’re too busy. Second of all, they should be happy that Charlie and Dakota even wanted to do the film, instead of some unknown D-listers.

Fans React To Dakota Johnson And Charlie Hunnam Casting For Fifty Shades Of Grey

It would be an understatement to say that Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam’s casting for Fifty Shades of Grey has been met with enthusiastic response – whether positive or negative – all over the internet.

Some of the fan reactions are below, ranging from the hilarious to the outright bewildering. Funnily enough, a lot of these fans also don’t seem to have their grammar in order. Although to be fair, I guess it is Twitter.

One fan wrote, “Just saw who will be Christian and Anastasia in Fifty Shades of Grey. Hmmm, never heard about them before.” Another wrote, “Ok…. they kill it they freaking kill it. The movie has been totally ruined. Fifty shades will suck now.”

Bret Easton Ellis Reveals That Robert Pattinson Was First Choice For Fifty Shades of Grey

Bret Easton Ellis Reveals That Robert Pattinson Was First Choice For Fifty Shades of Grey

When Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson were announced as the leads for Fifty Shades of Grey, the internet reaction seemed to be pretty evenly split. Although Dakota’s casting mostly garnered a giant ‘who?’, Charlie’s casting reassured some fans and angered others. However, Bret Easton Ellis – who also happens to be close to Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James – claims that her first choice for the role was Robert Pattinson.

Not a lot of people know that Fifty Shades of Grey initially began as Twilight fan fiction titled ‘Masters of the Universe’, so it would make sense that James’ first choice for the role was the person she pictured in her head while writing it.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Movie: Ian Somerhalder Upset About Losing Role

Fifty Shades Of Grey Movie: Ian Somerhalder Upset About Losing Role

Poor Ian Somerhalder. He campaigned and campaigned, even coming up with mock auditions and expressing his interest in the role during every interview he gave. But alas, it was not meant to be. According to a recent report from US Weekly and a series of reports following that, it seems as though Ian Somerhalder is out of the running for the role of Christian Grey in the upcoming film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

An offer went out to Garrett Hedlund, but he turned down the role because he didn’t want to [ahem] ‘commit to three films’. In Hollywood speak, that’s just a polite way of saying that he didn’t want to do the role. Seriously, he committed to the Tron films without thinking twice, and it’s not like he’s so in demand that he’s busy for the next few years. Anyway, the author of the books, (adapted fan fiction, seriously), E.L. James is reportedly aiming for a bigger name than Ian, which obviously must have been upsetting to him.
