Fifty

So, are you going to see it? I am in! Curiosity always kills me. I read the first Fifty book and liked it but wasn’t overly impressed. I even found some typos and circled them so the friend I passed the book on to next could see them. But I am the kind of person that once I start reading a book series or watching a tv series, I will only stop unless it’s intolerably horrible.

Of course I read the second and third book. I actually liked the second book better than the first and HAD to read the third book to see what happens to Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Now I’ve just got to see how this is all going to come together in the movie. Just how far are they going go?

So who are Charlie Hunnam (Christian) and Dakota Johnson (Ana)? I am usually pretty good about keeping up with celebrities but these two names do not ring a bell. After reading some reviews online, it seems like the Fifty fans are not too keen on the cast. I even read one response that they didn’t like Charlie Hunnam cast as Christian because his eyes are set too close together. Really? Others commented that Dakota Johnson looks like she’s in her early 30’s when Ana is only in her 20’s in the book. Then there is the question if these two were chosen because no big name actor/actress wanted to take on such a sexually explicit role.

Assuming you read the book, don’t deny that you pictured someone in your mind playing Ana and Christian in the movie. Not sure why, but I definitely envisioned Colin Egglesfiled playing Christian and after a lot of pondering, maybe Anna Kendrick as Ana.

Who do you think should have been cast as the dominant and submissive in the movie?
