Fifty Shades Of Grey Fans Submit Angry Petition To Have Alexis Bledel & Matt Bomer Dominate Lead Roles!

Looks like quite a few Fifty Shades of Grey fans are fifty shades of beet red about the casting decisions made!

In response to the recent news that Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam would be portraying Anastasia and Christian in the upcoming movie, angry fans released their rage through the only outlet they had:

Bondage! The internet!

A petition has been posted to Change.org to demand that Charlie and Dakota be replaced by Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel respectively.

And if there's one thing that Fifty Shades of Grey fans loved to do, it's signing some contracts!

Over 22,000 submitted that they'd like to see Matt and Alexis dominate the leading, throbbing parts!

The petition made it clear that when it comes to Matt and Alexis, these fans feel that any other choice would be a slap in the face (not the seksi kind) and they won't take no for an answer (unless there's a safe word):

"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 And I read the whole trilogy and I can assure that Matt is the perfect actor for this movie and Alexis too. So please PLEASE, all of the GREYsessed and Bomerettes in the world NEED those actors. They always will be for us the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. WE CAN DO ANYTHING GUYS, ANYTHING."

Hmm Alexis would be great in this role, but on the other hand, it would probably ruin any rewatch of the comparatively innocent Gilmore Girls!

We wonder if producers will listen to their pleas to have a raging Bomer and Bledel!

    I agree with them. The Gilmore girl is perfect for the female lead. Not so sure that the petition will have any impact though….

    Why would Alexis and Matt EVER agree to having anything to do with this crap????

    Maybe people should realize that maybe Matt and Alexis do not want to be involved with 50 shades. I don"t see Alexis being willing to go nude in this movie. So people just need to relax and just accept the cast as is and wait to see the movie first then can complain. Im not complaining at all about seeing Charlie Hunnam at Grey!!!!!!!

    The fans need to get over it! They cast the leads in this crapfest of a movie. The books weren't much better. Plus Bomer and Bledel don't want to ruin their careers appearing in this Godawful trilogy based on a stupid Twilight fanfic.

    This is a joke. Who are these assholes to petition a casting choice for a movie based on a fictional novel? Clearly Charlie and Dakota blew the competition out of the water with their auditions and that should be enough. I petition morons from starting petitions like that!

    The two they picked for the parts are scruffy looking and not overly attractive. Who cares. Don't wish good actors on this crap.

    Why would these two ever do a movie like fifty shades of shit?

    what a bunch of whiny losers.

    Now it has come to demanding who plays parts in someone elses movie. People need to let the creators create their own sh*t. The nerve!!!

    These pre-teens need to shut their mouths. I think Charlie will be perfect for this role and i cant wait to see him shine past his bad boy Jaxx image. These people who're hurt from him being cast as Christian are just some ignorant beings who're mad cause they didnt get their way. Charlie was chosen for a reason and i cant wait to see why.

    I'll take the Gilmore girl playing the role but Matt Bomer sorry but he is too pretty and gay that's just a turn off at least for me!!

    I cannot wait to see Charlie Dunnam as Grey. I think he's going to be great! Plus, I highly doubt the ridiculous petition will make any impact on the choices already made.

    At first I was slightly disappointed, but if you look at pictures of Charlie where he is clean cut, he looks pretty much like Christian to me. And when Dakota dyes her hair, she will fit the bill too. Now I think it's a perfect casting job. Why were people rooting for Matt so much?! Yes he is very good looking, but I would not be able to get past the thought that he isn't attracted to women. How can he be believable?



  14. 14

    I feel sorry for Dakota and Charlie or whatever his name is. This must suck that people are so against you playing a role and calling you fugly, etc.

    Both of the chosen actors were clearly awful choices, but I'm not still not sure about Alexis or Matt.
    1) Alexis does have the ideal look BUT I think she is too old to play this part…
    And MOST importantly, 2) Matt Bomer is gay! That means 0% chemistry, I don't care how good of an actor he is!!
    If this movie is going to work (which I still doubt), the chemistry between the two actors needs to be PHENOMENAL! Now, Chris Hemsworth with that Thor body and deep voice that is Christian Grey lol. The actress should probably be an upcoming person

    The two that they picked to play the role are SO DISAPPOINTING!

    Perez himself should put a STOP to all this! Bashing Matt on the fact that he is GAY? Screw you! I don't care if he gets the role or not (I actually supported Ian Somerhalder, bcz he can create fantastic chemistry with everybody) but don't even dare to say that the fact that he is gay influences A BIT his performance. Have you seen ANY of his movies? Matt is a fantastic actor, who is compatible with all his female leads! His private life is totally separate from his acting, so SHUSH! Stop bashing him!
    Signed, a straight female

    I say just leave It alone and let the movie go with its flow. "IT IS WHAT IT IS" We may never know how they are until we see the movie . Stop criticizing and let it happen!!. I believe they choose the RIGHT PEOPLE !!! You go Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson!!.

    Because these two really want their names sullied by crappier writing than Twilight.

    Maybe fans don't realize that most actors/actresses want this as much as they want to star in the next Lindsay Lohan movie.

    alexis bledel and matt bomer these two r the best character for the nice movie like, fifty shades of grey……. pls dont change the cast…



  22. 22

    it's funny how most of you think that the leads were chosen because they were the best at auditions or whatever! Wait, i'm not done laughing. haha ha haha didn't you hear? many more were chosen and turned down the role before the two leads were officially picked…so do go on and on about how they were the best for the job..technically they were the only ones who agreed to do it after a whole lot of no from a lot of other actors.

    I read the book thousand times.. and I don't see the image of Anastasia to Dakota as well as Christian to Charlie.. All of us have inside portraits about those 2 characters.. But eversince I saw the rumor between Matt and Alexis portraying the roles… I can't stop thinking and hoping that they will do the roles.. Own comment only.. I just love Matt and Alexis. If Alexis going to portrait as Ana, this will be the biggest break of her career same as Matt of White Collar.

    I will NOT go see this movie now because of casting choice. Nor will I ever purchase another EL James book

    I agree Alexis and matt make the perfect and and Christian. I'm really upset with who they have chosen right now… All the rest of the characters I don't care just about and and Christian!
