Dakota Johnson And Charlie Hunnam Will Star In Fifty Shades Of Grey

On Super Bowl Sunday you will see the first glimpse of Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson as the stars of Fifty Shades Of Grey. The funny thing about that is the cost of the ad will cost more than the salaries that Universal Pictures is paying the two actors who will play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Apparently the two were cast after a screen test that was incredibly hot. The studio is hoping that the name of the movie will make up for the lack of star power and that it will follow the Twilight example of make a ton of money and pay your actors little. If the movie does great, the actors will do better in the sequels money wise but will make huge money in projects that have nothing to do with the films.

The casting could have been a whole lot worse. Charlie is great on Sons Of Anarchy and Dakota remains one of the people I would most like to have a drink with, so I can't complain about her too much either, except I always have thought of her more as a comedy type actress.

Are we gonna see his peen in this? That's all I care about.

Count Jerkula said...

If the movie isn't NC-17, then they might as well air it on Lifetime at 7PM on a Sunday. Sandwich it between a couple Murder She Wrotes to hit the target demo.

WareCat said...

Dakota has a looooooong face.

Kristin said...

Charlie kinda looks like the flesh beard baby of Spencer Pratt and Jesse "Vanilla Gorilla" James.

audrey said...

It doesn't matter who they hire as actors...if the script sucks as bad as the book then the movie is going to be a big pile of crap.

Charlie weenie? Yes please! I refuse to read the books (need to preserve brain cells, nor the cinematic renderings, however I'm up for Charlie shlong pics fo shiz!

Peggy Too said...

These two just don't do it for me. She might be okay, but Christian is sleek and smooth, this guy is a little too rough around the edges. He looks like a hood not an executive.

Henriette said...

50 Shades of boring! That is just too much blonde in a couple. Might as well make it stop motion cartoon with Barbie and Ken.

a non a miss said...

I'm sure he will shave and cut his hair before filming.

Pip said...

Yes, Kristin! I have been saying this for ages! He's an attractive guy, but looks way to much like Spencer Pratt for my liking.

sandybrook said...

They are the stars becuz the people they would have wanted want nothing to do with this. This will be The Canyons on a bigger budget and Hollywood understands that.

Lotta PiƱa Colada said...

@a non +1

Cathy said...

@Peggy - he has more photos on IMDB where he's more clean shaven and looks much better.

Kels said...

Peggy sounds pretty old, but then again your name is Peggy. "He looks like a hood" lol

That girl Dakota is butt ugly. End of story.

Rach Around said...

Dakota must've learned to suck cock from either Tippi or Melanie. That girl at her best makes my confidence sky rocket.

lazyday603 said...

She is great. Her breakup rant in The Five Year Engagement about how old and wrinkly Emily Blunt is compared to her was hilarious. And nobody has uploaded that scene you YouTube. Where are the brave copyright pirates of yesteryear when you need them? I wouldn't watch this movie for a million bucks, but I will fast forward to specific parts when it reaches premium cable.

MollyMo said...

Lol Kristin

didi67 said...

well there goes that fantasy.

Seachica said...

You know what this thread needs? Pictures of Charlie "Humminah" Hunnam as Jax wet from the shower.

That boy is hot and has acting chops. Shame he's being cast in the Showgirls of the 21st century.

Renoblondee said...

Huh. That guy looks nothing at all like Christian. I thought Ian Sommerholder.

He looks hot in Pacific Rim. I've never watched Sons of Anarchy, but I'd do my wash on those abs.

I think Christian Bale 10 or 15 years ago would have been perfect for the role.

DewieTheBear said...

Don't care, not seeing it.

e rosey thorne 3rd said...

Wait, 50 Shades of Meh wasn't a comedy?!

Brenda L said...

I expect the two to begin a fauxmance in 3...2....

Rach Around said...

A non: I do hope he does some downstairs grooming! Means I don't need to floss between meals.

discoflux said...

How am I just now realizing that this guy was the hot kid on Undeclared?!?!?

Lil P said...

+1. This movie took too long to cast. It lost momentum from the hype of the books. By the time I got to the 3rd book I just couldn't anymore & didn't care about them making a movie of it. . @seachica so true showgirls 2014 ha ha ha

Peggy Too said...

Haha!!! I am old!!

a non a miss said...

He bulked up!

Sugar said...

She better start practicing her sexy lip biting skills.

Eros said...

Oh Charlie, fodder of my sexual commiserations... Mmhmmm...

He is one of the few actors i might embarass myself over...Like get very liquored up first for courage, then ask him for sex. Never in my life had to do thar before but would do it for a chance at his peen.

Leo said...

Charlie hunnam in sons of anarchy and Charlie hunnam in queer as folk is apples and oranges imo

Leo said...

You ain't the only one, pegs

Tina Mallette said...

You are correct Leo and that is why it is called acting, good and great actors are chameleons

Charlie just has to polish up the English accent, shave, cut the hair and get a posh wardrobe and show us what kind of acting chops he had though yes it does depend on the script

Tina Mallette said...

He was sooooooooo hot on Queer as Folk, British version. So was Aiden Gillen.

Tina Mallette said...

In his interviews he seems to suggest he is picky about what projects he does because he is always thinking long term, so maybe the script is better than the book. Last I heard it was being written by a British screenwriter with some track record not some Hollywood hack.

Eros said...

Very interesting, Tina... I didnt know that about him and never saw Queer but i will have to youtube it later to check him out...

There is something about him besides being drop dead gprgeous which does it for me. He has whatever brad pitt had in his legends of fall days.

Leo said...

My point was there are a few facets to Charlie hunnam. People may have only seen him as jax but that's actually my least favorite role of his.

lostathome said...

Ok, I'm obsessed with Charlie, so as much as I hate this, maybe we'll get to ser him naked. Dakota doesn't seem right for the part but hey, they saw something we didn't.

roxie said...

The books were terrible! Actually I only made it through half the first one. If I read one more "oh my" I was going to vomit.

califblondy said...

I've read that it will be NC17. I'm excited, but I haven't seen an NC17 movie since Showgirls.

elisacg said...

I am super excited to see Jax as Christian Grey. I always felt like Charlie and SOA in general are very underrated. I think he will clean up very nicely.

@Eros... you are right. He is not only gorgeous, but I think he has this magnetic sex appeal thing going!

Alexa Rose said...

Charlie is hot, still on the fence about seeing the movie because the book was so bad. I'll probably end up renting it just to watch Charlie.

K said...

At least he doesn't have to try and put on a crappy Brit accent, just make sure his Geordie accent doesn't creep in! Hah! He's georgous, shame he's going to do this shit.

NaughtyNurse said...

Miscast. Miscast. Miscast!

THE FANTASTIC SPAZZOMATIC said...

This book is Mommy porn. Sexually invigorated 18-35 year olds watch porn to get off. They don't read books that refer to genitals as their "sex." That's gay, and not hot. Also, blonde men remind me of pussies, like, literal pussies.

char said...

She looks like her dad - it's all I see when I look at her. Might make the film better

char said...

Ha ha ha he does!

char said...

I don't think this will be as good as Showgirls. Showgirls is great trash. I mean when they have sex in the pool she looks like a fish thrashing around out of water, not erotic by glitzy lols

Alexia Tessier said...

I am awaiting for the releasing of Fifty shades Movie. and i watch Charlie's work it is pretty awesome to see on the screen.
