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!
