Christian Grey has been officially cast today, the sexy character to be played by Charlie Hunnam in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, an announcement that is making Twitter roar and comes only shortly after Dakota Johnson was confirmed to have been cast as Anastasia Steele in the film. Hypable confirms this Monday, Aug. 2, that the “Sons of Anarchy” actor will be playing the dominant CEO in “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
EL James took to Twitter this morning to stun many fans by saying that Anastasia Steele had been found in “The Social Network’s” Dakota Johnson. Only a few dozen minutes afterwards, the inner goddess writer again took to Twitter to tell fans what they have been waiting for (well over a year in waiting, in fact): who our Christian Grey would be on the silver screen!
“The gorgeous and talented Charlie Hunnam will be Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.”
What do you think of this breaking announcement? Are you excited to see Charlie Hunnam (whose name has a coincidental [or not] reference to the illustrious Charlie Tango!) cast as Christian Grey? Again, while it may not have been the exact Christian that many fans were expecting to see on the screen, the handsome actor will likely be a fine choice alongside Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele (more details here).
This writer is simply amazed that the tremendous moment, after all these months of “Fifty Shades of Grey” rumors and waiting, is finally here! What do you think of our Christian and Ana together? Are you pleased with the casting so far? Now, the supporting cast selections may begin!
Please drop in your own thoughts below; I would love to hear your reactions to Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson taking to the big screen as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele! Ultimately, are they the right choice for the film in your eyes? Fan reactions at the moment seem mixed.
