After being teased for oh so long, we FINALLY found out who will be playing Anastasia and Christian in 50 Shades of Grey!
Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam are officially tied down to play the lead roles in the upcoming flick!
Mmhmm. We likey very much!
But there was another pair who apparently wanted in on this sexual fantasy!
Lena Dunham and Rainn Wilson!!!
They both got onto Twitter after the announcement and HIGHlariously sounded off on losing out to Dakota and Charlie! Lena wrote:
I lost the role in 50 Shades of Grey so you won't be hearing from me for awhile
— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 2, 2013
The Office star also filled his fans in on how close he came to playing Christian! Rainn tweeted:
Congrats to Charlie Hunnam on the 50 Shades of Grey role. It was a tough fight but the actor with the longer hair won. #bummed
— RainnWilson (@rainnwilson) September 2, 2013
Hey, maybe you two can get in on the second installment???
Lena and Rainn weren't the only ones talking on Twitter about 50 Shades. True Blood bad guy Rob Kazinsky, who co-starred with Charlie in Pacific Rim, had nothing but nice things to say about the new Christian Grey. Rob said:
I don't think I've worked with a harder working or more humble actor than Charlie Hunnam, he will be great as Christian grey.

My participation in the 50 Shades film was contingent on Roz from Frasier being cast as Anastasia. Sad this didn't work out. #Showbiz

I haven't read 50 Shades Of Grey, but I know one thing: Dakota Johnson is a damn good actress and that is all there is to it.
