While you were sleeping/at the beach/watching British teen TV shows this weekend, Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson were cast as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. We'd heard rumblings that Hunnam — aka Jax Teller on Sons of Anarchy — was close to signing on for the role, and since he was naked a lot in Queer as Folk and shows off his abs (and ass) quite often in SOA, he should be fine playing a sexually charged businessman into BDSM. And by fine I mean naked a lot.
You're staring into the bright, beautiful faces of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Dakota Johnson (of Social Network semi-renown) and Charlie Hunnam (of robot vs. giant lizards fame) have been cast as the leads in movie adaptation of EL James's extremely popular Fifty Shades of Grey.
Casting rumors had run as wild as a pack of hyenas jacked up on PCP since the Fifty Shades movie was announced back in March 2012, with Emma Watson and Armie Hammer at one point getting dragged down into the erotica mudpit. Sadly, these rumors were not to be, but Hunnam and Johnson should make a fine S&M Twilight fan fiction duo.
