Fifty Shades of Grey
Okay, so while some of us are still trying to scrub our eyes clean of what we read in the pages of Fifty Shades, we can’t deny that we are a little bit curious about the upcoming movie, and who will play our Mr Grey. While I’m not confessing myself a fan of BDSM by a long shot, as I said some of the images will never leave my mind… however, I’m the ultimate fan of romance. If there is romance somewhere in a story I will read/watch it. Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele just happen to be that sort of love story. The one were they both becomes a better versions of themselves because of how deep their love for each other is. So while the movie may be very awkward to go and see we can’t pretend like we won’t be lining up to see it and eagerly awaiting the cast list.
So with so much speculation around lately about who will star as the main characters, I thought I would make a list of who is rumoured to be in consideration.
Ahhh Christian Grey, our very troubled, domineering male lead. Grey is described as having dark copper hair, gray eyes, young (27), incredibly successful, wealthy, tall, muscular, broad shouldered, and mysterious, with his secret dark side and past. So which of these candidates will be best suited? We have…
Best know for his portrayal of Damon Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries, Somerhalder was fan picked early on as being a top contender. He definitely has the tortured sexiness about him. I mean who would say no to him?
White Collar’s, Matt Bomer, has also been throw around in the mix in online fan polls. With many pinning him neck and neck for the part with Ian Somerhalder. However, screenwriter Bret Eastern Ellis, sparked online controversy when he tweeted, “Okay I'll say it. Matt Bomer isn't right for Christian Grey because he is openly gay. He's great for other roles but this is too big a game.”
A little more age appropriate than some of the other chooses is Henry Cavill. From Tristan and Isolde, Red Riding Hood and Stardust and most recently Superman in Man of Steel, Cavill is heating the polls as another recent frontrunner for the part.
Ana is portrayed throughout the books to be a rather innocent, shy, slim, shabby, self conscious and stubborn sort of person. As the story is told by her she describes herself as pale, with brown hair and too big for her face blue eyes. She also admits to being somewhat, but not overly, pretty.
Best known for her part as Daenerys Targaryen in TV series Game of Thrones, 24 year old British actress Emilia Clarke is probably the most recent star to set Fifty Shade polls rocking. Emilia has the natural look, pale skin, brown hair and big eyes. Not to mention that she is clearly not fazed about the nudity and sex scene, which might just win her the part.
I’d love to know who your top guesses/predictions are or if you know/want anyone else, or thoughts about the movie adaptation/cast….
