A group of “Fifty Shades of Grey” fans are outraged at the results of the casting announcement according to K Pop Starz on September 6. Earlier this week E.L James tweeted that she was “delighted to you know that the lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be out Anastasia in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.”
Anyone who watched “Ben and Kate” clearly could not argue that perfect fit.
E.L. then followed with “So… Christian…”
No one saw that coming. For 18 months fans speculated. Magazine and websites polled. “Sons of Anarchy” Hunnam wasn’t top of any of those lists. That is exactly what E.L. James was looking for this whole time. James had mentioned more than once she wanted someone who was going to come in and shock us all.
Well played E.L. James, well played.
While there's plenty of Jax fans out there who are ecstatic about the news, Matt Bomer fans are outraged and feel James has made the wrong choice. These fans have started a petition on Change.org with the hopes of changing E.L.’s mind.
The trend of complaints seems to be about Hunnam’s appearance on “SOA.” They obviously haven’t seen him in anything outside of “Sons of Anarchy.”
What do you think about the pick for Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey in “Fifty Shades of Grey?” Do you have plans to see the movie now that the cast has been announced?
