This has been long in the making! Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam have been cast as Anastasia and Christian for the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.
Well, these steamy characters have finally found their actors!
E.L. James — author of Fifty Shades of Grey— has announced via Twitter on Monday that she has cast Dakota Johnson to portray Anastasia Steele and Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey in the film adaptation of her famed erotic novel!
“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,” James stated, adding, “The gorgeous and talented Charlie Hunnam will be Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.”
Johnson has previously appeared in 21 Jump Street, The Five-Year Engagement and the Fox series Ben & Kate. She is also semi-famous for being the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, but we doubt that was considered during casting.
Hunnam is most famous for his role as Jax Teller on Sons of Anarchy, although he also appeared in Pacific Rim. Well, there you are, beautiful actors for the steamiest roles ever! What do you think of the casting choices?
