‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Fan Petition Demands New Casting
More than 22,000 people would rather see actors Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel play "Fifty Shades" couple Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.
It was revealed on Monday that “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam and “Ben and Kate” actress Dakota Johnson would play the leads in the big-screen adaptation of E.L. James' popular erotic novel.
This news sent many fans into a tizzy, and now a Change.org petition has been created, demanding the producers rethink the casting decisions.
The petition description screams, "Matt Bomer is the PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF CHRISTIAN GREY AND ALEXIS BLEDEL IS THE PERFECT ACTRESS TO REPRESENT ANASTASIA STEELE and if THEY ARE NOT, NOBODY WILL BE.”
It added, "So please PLEASE, all of the GREYsessed and Bomerettes in the world NEED those actors."
The film, to be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, is set for release in 2014.
