Yesterday E.L. James sent Twitter (and soccer moms everywhere) abuzz when she announced who would be starring in the movie adaptation of her runaway hit book series, Fifty Shades of Grey. After SO MUCH speculation on which actors would be cast– we even had a few hot guesses — she had this to say/tweet:
That’s right, Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson will be playing Christian and Anastasia, respectively. Notice how Ian Somerhalder’s name wasn’t listed anywhere up there. Despite being the fan favorite and showing interest in the roll himself, E.L. James clearly wasn’t feeling Somerhalder as her S+M loving lead.
While Hunnam has starred in “Sons of Anarchy”, Johnson hasn’t really had any major roles yet (save for the short-lived “Ben and Kate”). Just who are these two actors? TMZ has the scoop, plus all breaking news on “Fifty Shades”.
