Fifty Shades of Grey Fans and Inner Goddesses Everywhere Rejoice…We have a cast





Social Network star Dakota, the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, recently emerged as a front-runner for the leading part but has now officially been cast.FOX's "Ben And Kate" - Season One

EL James revealed the news on her Twitter page telling fans: ‘I am delighted to let you know that the lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.’ Inner Goddesss world wide can now breath a sigh of
relief because yes people…we have a cast!

Minutes later, she also revealed that Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam would be playing Anastasia’s kinky lover Christian Grey.


Rumors have run rampant about the casting since it was announced  that the bestselling book would be turned into a movie. Fans charlie-hunnamhave clamored for Ian Somerholder or Matt Bomer to star, and names like Ryan Gosling and unofficailly, David Gandy have been mentioned as well. Hunnam’s name also came up more recently as the front runner after Garrett Hedlund reportedly turned down the role because of a scheduling conflict. .

Fifty Shades Of Grey sees the young and virginal  college student, Anastasia Steele fall head over heels for the charms of  twenty-something, billionaire Christian Grey, who  unbeknownst to Ms. Steele, has a penchant for kink.

The book, which began as Twilight fan fiction, has now become a global phenomenon and the trilogy has been translated in 50 languages worldwide since its release. To date, the “Fifty Shades” trilogy has sold over 70 million copies worldwide in e-book and print, making it one of the fastest-selling book series ever


Personally, when I picture Christian and Anastasia, these two are not who comes to mind but as you can see, a clean shaven Charlie cleans up quite nicely.  Of course I’m biased as I’ve made  it no secret that I would love to have seen James Scott and  myself  in the role but since that isn’t possible( because I’m busy  chatting with you guys )I’ll let Kristen Kreuk fill in for me.  Who is James Scott you ask?


 I can just hear him saying: “bend over Anastasia” in that British accent.  Yeah, I know Christian isn’t British but…. ya know.  But just in case you still aren’t convinced…just have another little look see!


Mercy!! The things I would do to that gorgeous, sexy hunk of a man

And if you still aren’t convinced, we suggest you take your meds, don your glasses, and schedule an appointment with your therapist because something just isn’t right.

Anyway, the film is scheduled to hit theaters on August 1, 2014 and I’m quite sure that inner goddesses everywhere will be biting their lips in anticipation!

How do you feel about  Dakota and Charlie as Anastasia and Christian? Comment and let us know!
