Forget Matthew Bomer or Ian Somerhalder, I think you’ve found your Christian right here.
By the time they figure out the cast for 50 Shades of Grey, is anyone even going to care anymore? I feel like this shit is taking forever!
Ben Affleck, One Direction and “Fifty Shades of Grey” author E L James are among Barbara Walters’ “10 Most Fascinating People of 2012,” the news anchor announced on Monday’s “The View.”
Other luminaries to be profiled on Walters’ 20th annual special include Seth MacFarlane, Hillary Clinton, Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas and New Jersey governor Chris Christie.
The newswoman’s “Number One Most Fascinating Person of 2012″ will be revealed on the show, along with the other two still-unannounced stars.
You know who I personally find fascinating? 1D’s management team (Modest! Management), who continue to prove on a daily basis why Simon Cowell dropped them like a hot potato. After allowing “Louis” to tweet “Fuck You” on twitter (after the famous “Bullshit” tweet and numerous times of calling his fans “lost causes” and “fake fans” in various written articles), the big Fuck You is still sitting there squashed in between two “thank yous to our fans” tweets like the black sheep of the family for all the teens and tweens to see. What kind of management team allows this? Perhaps the same one that continues to fuck up when they’re tweeting as their clients. Check out this tweet from the Little Mix Official Twitter:
That’s right. “They” tweeted a One Direction promotion while logged in as Little Mix (because while Perrie may be dating Zayn, Little Mix certainly has no reason to be tweeting 1D promotions from the Little Mix twitter). And people still think the boys in One Direction have full control of their twitter? Please. My 68-year old father has more computer skills than these fucks.
Well, guess this means she won’t be playing Ana in the movie. Kristen Stewart had this to say about 50 Shades of Grey, the book that started as Twilight fanfic (so basically the character of Ana is inspired by her) Backstage.com (via The Sun):
“[The book] creeps me out. I’ve skimmed parts of it. When I read the first few pages describing her messy hair, I was like, ‘This is so strange.’ But it’s just so raunchy! I mean, obviously, everyone knows that. But when I see people reading it on planes and stuff, I’m genuinely creeped out. Like, you’re basically just reading porn right now! Get that blanket off your lap!”
I love when Kristen gets all skeeved out by a book, but she was hooking up with a married man in a car. You know what we have to say to that:
I don’t even have enough gifs to react properly to Leona Lewis’ choice for Christian Grey:
“For Christian Grey it has to be someone really hot and super smooth. Why am I just thinking of Chris Brown… maybe Chris Brown!”
There’s a difference between beating someone for sexual pleasure and just beating someone up. When Chris Brown beats you, he doesn’t use safe words. Please tell me this is a joke.
and an obligatory Liam because of all the rumors…
And the soundtrack if Chris Brown were cast (Set to the Secretary to get you in the S&M mood):
There’s so much hype and it hasn’t even been cast yet, but here’s the latest on everything 50 Shades:
Kelly Marcel will write the screenplay. Marcel wrote the script for Saving Mr. Banks last year and cocreated Terra Nova (which was a decent TV show, but got canceled).
Ryan Gosling Not the Frontrunner to Play Christian Grey: Reports that E.L. James’ husband said that Ryan was the No. 1 choice to star in the film had been “completely misreported.” (Which is good because I don’t see him as Christian at all)
Ian Somerhalder “Gets It”: Ian has been a fan favorite and said he’d “absolutely” be up for the role. In September, Somerhalder told E! News with a grin, “I get why it’s taken off the way it has.” (He’s my personal favorite for the role)
Alexander Skarsgård “Was Born to Play” Mr. Grey: Skars told Access Hollywood that he was a natural to play Seattle’s billionaire bad boy. “Where do I sign?” he asked. ”He’s got a sex chamber? My character has that on True Blood!” Skarsgård, who seems like he’d feel right at home in Christian’s Red Room of Pain, said with a smile he “was born to play that part.” (He’d be good at it, although after some horrible seasons of True Blood (not his fault), I’m not feeling Skars as Christian as much)
Matt Bomer Most Controversial Choice: Fans photoshopped into the role of Mr. Fifty Shades on a fake Entertainment Weekly cover, which filmmakers were quick to point out that this was, sadly, just a hoax. And Bret Easton Ellis (who is bummed he wasn’t chosen to write the Fifty Shades screenplay) does not want to see Bomer playing the role of Christian. But I’m seeing Matt’s name come up more and more as a possible Christian.
As far as Ana goes:
Emma Watson‘s name has come up. Nina Dobrev is another (which if Ian is cast would be either like real life or the Vampire Diaries). Mila Kunis has recently been named as a potential.
I hadn’t heard this one before, but Angelina Jolie is rumored to be a possible director, which would be awesome because you know she’s into the kinky shit.
So basically, we know nothing!
Last night at the EMAs, Ian Somerhalder talked to E!Online about rumors that he’s in the running for the role of Christian Grey:
Ian shared: “I think that’s going to be a very interesting story to tell…It seems like whoever plays that role, it will be very interesting rehearsal time…the audition process is gonna be interesting.”
As for who Ian would cast as his Anastasia?
The actor responded: “My Anastasia? I don’t know…there are too many [good Hollywood actors] to name.”
Although the actor wouldn’t reveal whether he’s in for the sexually adventurous gig, he did share that. “I get it. I get it. I get why it’s taken off the way it has.”
Ian is one of the few actors that I think can pull off playing a dark character with humanity and vulnerability (much like he does as Damon on Vampire Diaries).
There have been rumors that Emma Watson has been cast as Anastasia in the 50 Shades of Grey movie, but she hasn’t read a script. I actually think she’d be a good choice because she’s got a certain prudishness that is, let’s be honest, a bit rare these days. 50 shades was twilight fanfic originally and I can’t imagine Kristin Stewart pulling off the wide-eyed virgin act anymore. From Opposing Views:
After a couple of months of rumours that she’s already been cast, it turns out that Emma Watson is mulling over swapping her wand for a vibrator, her broom-stick for a leather paddle and her school tie for a whole wardrobe full of different coloured grey silk ties to play the irritating virgin-turned submissive in a collar Anastasia Steele in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey.
But hold on to your wizard hats as the 22-year-old Brit hasn’t yet had the displeasure of reading the book so possibly she thinks it’s about some painter lacking inspiration when it comes to his colour palette.She said: “The thing is I haven’t read any of the book because I haven’t read a script so it’s quite difficult to know what I’m turning down potentially but I hear it’s quite raunchy.
“I mean if there’s interesting character development and there’s an interesting story then I would consider it – but I haven’t been offered anything.””…for her role in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, she says she found it ‘difficult’ watching the kissing scenes back. ”It’s really funny because when I watch the film back, there are a few things I can’t watch. I can’t watch the kissing scenes,” says the in-for-a-shock-if-she-takes-the 50 Shades role actress.
