The rumor mill has been spinning this year on which Hollywood a-listers would be playing Christian Grey and Ana Steele in the long anticipated film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. At this point, if you haven’t at the very least heard an abridged version from a friend, you’ve read the series and sometimes catch yourself day dreaming about Mr. Grey’s red room of pain. Heart throbs like Ryan Gosling, Alexander Skarsgard and Chris Pine, have been named, and (unfortunately) ruled out, as possibilities for the role of Christian. Though, the most recent name that has been thrown into the ring is Son’s of Anarchy star, Charlie Hunnam. His reps did not confirm his involvement in the film and only commented that no decisions have been made regarding the final cast. The role of Ana has been connected to actresses like Kristen Stewart and Emma Watson and British model, Cara Delevigne. Today, the likely list of contenders has been expanded to include Dakota Johnson, whose latest roles include The Social Network and 21 Jump Street.
If you know me, you know my vote for Christian is Alexander Skarsgard. Do I even need to explain? And, even though I favor blondes, my vote has to go with the brunette version of Dakota Johnson for the role of Ana. Laters, baby.
