I Interrupt Your Monday…

…for a very important announcement.

Charlie Hunnam has been cast as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

This fine, fine specimen of a male will be nakey (omg he better be full frontal naked) on the big screen…

Did I care about the Fifty Shades of Grey movie five minutes ago? No. Do I care now – hell yes.

Can he pull off Christian Grey? I don’t really care. Just do dirty things naked and I’ll eat my popcorn with my girlfriends and it will be an epic night. *wink*

Oh – And Dakota Johnson is set to play Ana.

What are your thoughts? Does this totally ruin Jax from Sons of Anarchy?

    Never read the books, and don’t plan to. I’m just tired of hearing about who was going to be cast in this movie. I feel like we have been hearing about this forever now! Oh, and Dakota is kinda, meh, to me.

      I’ve only read the first half of book one so I’m not too familiar with the books either. What will we do now without hearing casting rumors constantly? ;)

    I have to say am disappointed. Charlie is too fine of an actor to play Christian Grey. I remember when they asked Stephen Amell would he like to be CG and guy said: “No. I just don’t think he’s that interesting.”
    Considering I only read and didn’t like first book in series and couldn’t care less about the movie,I can’t say if Charlie is fit to play CG. I am more upset because I think that this role doesn’t fit Charlie and his talent at all.

    I always that Matt Bomer would be the perfect person to play CG. I will say that the one good thing about Charlie playing CG is now I will finally cave and watch SOA. Never did before, but that link you sent me convinced me to watch. Especially that booty shot.

  4. says

    Having read all three books and an avid fan of SOA, I think it could go either way for Charlie Hunnam.

    Either he can bring an emotional maturity to Grey’s character that was NOT apparent in the books or the character will absorb him and we’ll all be screaming, “WHAT DID YOU DO TO OUR JAX, BISHES???”

    Horrible! Dakota Johnson (YAWN) Charlie is hot…but not what I envision as Christian! He looks so damn scruffy…and I dig scruffy…but Christian is super polished….ugh

    Oh well….we’ll see how it goes I guess….

    *huffs and shakes a fist at Brie* Damnit.. that side by side picture just killed Hunnam for me.

    I actually think CH is a very good actor. IMO, he plays a selfish asshole on SOA (not a jax fan canyatell?).. so Christian Grey seemingly wouldn’t be too much of a stretch. But just the 50SOG platform? Blech.

    I’ll take the nakey stills and any and all youtube videos. Don’t any actors read the books before signing onto the movie/tv shows? (Lost my faith when I read about Game of Thrones)

    I have seen a few Sons of Anarchy episodes – my husband likes this show – but it is too dark for me. I have seen the nakey butt & it is fine. I think he will be good in the movie & hopefully will shave the crappy beard. However, that being said, I haven’t read the books & probably won’t see the movie.

  8. says

    This post and comments made me giggle. I think it’s a TERRIBLE career choice for him, I’m disappointed FOR him which is dumb bc hello don’t know him LOL But anyway the fact that this movie is actually being nade at all is so dumb. The director is the woman who directed Kick-Ass… Aaaaaaand ended up having kids with the kid who played kick-ass. So much drama!

  9. Heather W says

    Yowza! I didn’t care for the book and really wasn’t paying attention to the movie either…until now! I love Charlie, and there is nothing better than naked Charlie! I will now gladly see the movie for him alone. I will always love Jax and SOA. This doesn’t change that fact, and if I get to see more of him in a movie all the better. I’m hoping the get a decent screenwriter to fix everything I hated about the book…wishful Hollywood miracle.

  10. Shana says

    I love SOA. I have a hard time seeing Charlie as a polished billionaire and not the bad boy biker Jax. I always thought Ian Somerhalder was a good choice, with his amazing eyes!

  11. June M. says

    I love Charlie Hunnam (Love him on SOA!!!) I would sit through FSOG if he was nakey, but I might have to bring an audiobook to listen to while watching, LOL :)

  12. Marilyn says

    Charlie Hunnam is a very fine actor who can pull off any role, but bad boy Jax will be great as Christian Grey! Yum….can I join you and your friends on August 1st? I’ll buy the popcorn!

  13. Alesa says

    I still remember him as a gay teenager in Queer as Folk! He did’t do it for me then and I’m sorry to say he doesn’t do it for me in SOA either. Although I’ve only seen Series 1 – and I know he’s supposed to be a biker – but he could at least have a shower and wash his hair once in a while, stand up straight and find some Jeans that fit him!! Oh and I cant bear the way he goes in for a kiss either. Eeew. Just can’t see him as the impossibly gorgeous, sophisticated-but sadistic CG. And honestly – how are they going to make a mainstream movie out of these books???!!

    Opinionated much?! :)

  14. bookster says

    Well I REALLY enjoyed FSOG but I was not really looking forward to the movie just because I am never happy with any movie adaptation from a book. I do not really care who is casted. I think they can make him look polished so that should not be a big deal. The books were and weren’t porn. He really loved her and it took a long a## time for him to figure it out and get there. I do not think it will be possible to portray all that in a movie. It will be just like the Twilights that if you had not read the books I have no idea how you knew what the heck was going on just by those depressing looks.

  15. Michael Cain says

    I liked him best in the original (UK version) of Queer as Folk. He was the teenager then, the Brit version of the Justin Taylor character.

  16. Jackie Sellner says

    I read all three books and was crushed when they announced Charlie was slotted to play CG. And don’t even get me started on who they picked to play Ana…blargh. I will need to watch SOA during my upcoming deployment…kinda wanna see his naked ass now

  18. sbashaw says

    Oh no! Charlie dropped out of the movie! I was looking forward to seeing what he could do with the role, and more of him!

  19. says
