Fans Sign Petition for Different Actors in ’50 Shades of Grey’


Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson have officially been cast as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the soon-to-be film adaptation of E.L. James’ 50 Shades of Grey

Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson to Star in ’50 Shades of Grey’

However, it appears as though 50 Shades fans aren’t pleased with the news. A fan-based cyber petition started this week, begging producers to recast the film. Apparently, 50 Shades readers have already filled the roles of Mr. Grey and Miss Steele in their minds… with Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel.

According to Entertainment Tonight, the White Collar star appreciates his fans’ gesture, but is “looking forward to seeing the film with Charlie and Dakota.” Alexis is also flattered, but will most likely enjoy the film from afar. The Gilmore Girls star did mention that she thinks the frenzy started on YouTube, where fans created several mock teaser trailers starring herself and Matt.

While we LOVE Matt and Alexis, we think Charlie and Dakota have serious potential with these roles!

What are your thoughts on the petition?
