Ummm, did he not realize how many women would love him for making this film?! Apparently Charlie Hunnam might not have been ready to be known as a raunch… Read more…

    I guess that would depend on your acting skills. You should be able to come out of it as the sexiest man alive if you played it right.

  2. 2

    Omg!! How did he get the key in the first place to unchain himself?!
    Oops! Must have dropped out of my underwear where I always keep it hidden. HA!!

    OMG it's gonna be Liam.

    He was smart to get out of this turkey while he still could. There is no way that this movie could ever be taken seriously.

    does this mean they're going to find a new Ana? (fingers crossed). im a little bummed out about him dropping out but dakota was just alllll wrong to begin with

    Well that's disappointing, I guess I will continue day dreaming when watching SOA then. I pray that they don't replace him with Matt Bomer, as gorgeous as he is and I have nothing against gays but it's hard to desire Christian Grey when he's really into men. I love Ian also, but don't picture him as Christian but more Gideon Cross. Henry Cavill or even better Chris Hemsworth.

    Re: IzzyLizzy – Liam would be a good choice. He is tall, sexy and handsome.Anastasia glad Molly wont be Anastasia.

    Ha! Showgirls… funny, when I was reading FSOG, Kyle MacLachlan was my image of Grey

    I knew it wasn't scheduling because when he was cast they said that they worked out scheduling so that it could work. I just hope he takes Dakota Johnson with him, she is so not Ana and needs to be replaced!

    Re: bjsmith – I think so too. And he is hot. I saw him in Expendables 2 and he had great presence and I was sad he was in so little of it., wanted more. I never saw that movie with he and Miley so I've only seen him in E2.

  12. 12

    The movie wouldn't make him "big" it would make him a worldwide sicko, and embarrassment, Ryan Gosling and other actors would NEVER touch a role like this even with a 10FT pole, the books are horrible, and beyond creepy it's like a sexualized teen wrote a fan-fict of something because they were horny, it's straight up creepy and weird. It's a career ruiner, no one is going to want him in other roles. How can you go into a movie theatre and watch a girl being beaten? Honestly, nasty af. Keep it to the books, no one wants the role because it's a jaw dropping failure, with powerful critics which will ruin a career.

    And please, keep Ian S away from this role, I don't want him being in a movie like this, such a stupid book, sorry Fifty Shades Of Grey fans, it's true, and my own opinion. Even if the movie does do good, this is a career ruiner.

    Rob Pattinson must have got a hold of him and warned him. This is the middle-aged housewives equivalent of Twilight (is there a difference?) - Rob will probably get 10,000 years out of purgatory for his good deed.

    50 Shades is a sexed-up fan fiction of Twilight… and even more badly written! I don't know how anyone could like it. It's an abomination to literature (and now cinema)

  14. Sammy says – reply to this


    Re: CrashNBurn – It IS a fanfiction - based on Twilight! The fantasy has just been taken out and the names changed. The writing is still as bad and the plot is still as non-existent!

  15. 15

    good. it would of been a joke for sure

  16. 16

    Re: CrashNBurn – I agree

    I vote hunky Asian dude. Those women would go ape-shit wet over the shibari sex scene.

  18. 18

    you know what drove me nuts about that book? the use of the word "Laters." hope they don't use it in the movie or i'll be cringing lots.

  19. d says – reply to this


    Ian had not even bother with it, his acting is hilarious in all it's earnestness. This guy would have been amusing to say the least, but Ian, what a joke.

  20. ally says – reply to this


    PLEASE take Dakota Johnson with you. If the main reason she was cast was due to chemistry and that chemistry was Charlie…ta ta? I have a bad feeling not many great actors are going to want to touch this project. I have a worse feeling that we're all going to wish we weren't so hard on Charlie when we see who we end up with next. Sigh.

  21. amcross says – reply to this


    Can they change Dakota Johnson too?? Between them she was the worst actually, she looks too old, isn't pretty and looks nothing like Ana, actually I really don't like her. Time for Fifty Team to find better fits, because these 2 are/were destined to fail…and look he already got cold feet, talking about professionals…2 NEW Unknown Actors please!

  22. seanne says – reply to this


    everyone keeps throwing around ian somerhalder but he looks NOTHING like the way christian is described and he never could. Christian needs light hair and a more slender build. like alex petyfer. chris hemsworth and all the others listed are too old, this man is barely into his late 20's.

  23. Doxys says – reply to this


    Re: seanne – Did you know how to read? Lighhair really? Christian is tall, slim yet muscular, and broad-shouldered, with DARK copper-colored hair and "smoldering" gray eyes.

  24. 24

    It all comes down to how it's made and the acting. It can easily be a disaster of a movie, or they can take the main story from the book and turn it into something amazing by making improvements. Same for the acting. It can end up terrible, and the actor wont be taken seriously, or it can be a chance to showcase talent. It all depends on so many things.

    WELLL!!!!! I am completely disappointed because I was looking forward to him as Christian. I guess I'll just obsess over him in SOA a little more. I love him in Sons though. He's a great actor.

    that's what drove you crazy??? what about all that inner goddess crap

    Re: CrashNBurn – If this was a such a horrible, terrible story/book to be made into a movie, then why was it on the top of the best selling lists around the world? Why has 50 shades of grey become such a world wide phenomenon? Try telling your opinion to the millions of women who made this book such a success. This trilogy of books are the best selling book series of all time. Over 70 MILLION books sold world wide! Those idiots don't seem to get it that this the best selling book of all time, of course it is going to made into a movie!!!

  29. ok_then says – reply to this


    Re: Sammy – This is the best selling book and trilogy of all time.. Regardless of what you think about the books.. It is the most anticipated movie adaption in recent history, this series has sold more books than any other series including Harry Potter/Twilight. This will be a world wide hit, and it may be too adult for the likes of you.. Stick to Sesame Street and Saturday morning cartoons if adult sexuality is too much for you to handle. Obviously you are not an adult.

    The guy knows it's a shit story. It's really that simple. Glad he jumped ship.

  31. 31

    Re: ok_then

    Sales are high because it caters to the lowest common denominator. It's written at a 4th grade level. Of course the sales are higher. There are a lot of stupid people out there in the world.

    Monetary success is great for this "author" (and I use the term very very loosely), when you are literally the biggest joke in the publishing world because you cannot write.

    But hey, The Rock is the #5 paid actor right now. While we can all appreciate that he's laughing all the way to the bank, the guy isn't going to win any Oscars.

    That said . . . I can almost guarantee that what the Rock wipes off his ass after eating Ethiopian food and shitting curry for 2 days straight is better than the tripe, dimestore vomit that 50 Shades of Grey has to offer.

    Let's not pretend it's art or that it's quality writing in any way, shape or form.

    Oh Perez you complete and total moron. He wouldn't have dropped out because he found the roll embarrassing, his FIRST role on TV was as a character called Nathan, in the original Queer as Folk series in England, which was then taken over to America like most of our good TV programs. Perhaps you should look at the stuff he got up to on that show before making claims of his embarrassment. Now I have just realized I'm trying to talk sense to a gossip blogger. Thank god you post some good music.

  34. Mark says – reply to this


    Good for him!I think Charlie Hunnam is very talented and I love him in SOA.Leave it to tons of manwhores in Hollywood fight for this porn!Seriously 50 Shades Of Grey is the most overrated piece of shit of the century!

  35. 35

    Not a fan of his (nothing against the guy, just have never watched SOA so I don't really know his acting at all) but he's smart to walk away. Best case scenario…the movie turns out like Twilight but worse…makes tons of money in the theater but tarnishes the actors reps and careers for life…ala Robert Pattinson. More likely scenario…they'll need to dumb down the sex scenes to get anything below a NC17 rating so it will be a slightly sexy dumb ass love story that won't appeal to anyone but the fanatics that actually think the book is awesome and will overall flop in theaters…and the actors will still be tied to it forever. It's a movie any self respecting actor should stay far away from.

    And I appreciate that it's a best seller, but it doesn't mean it needs to be made into a movie. Best seller doesn't even mean its good, especially with a book like this that somehow became the big "thing" which means a lot of people pick it up just because. Its horribly written, a terrible plot, horrible characters and doesn't even reflect the BDSM lifestyle. The fact a book about a controlling man and a weak woman is so popular makes me sick to my stomach actually. Just…no.

    Also, any book labeled erotica shouldn't be made into a major motion picture. Erotica is porn…

    Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to Economy tab for more detail …

    I don't know why you've not suggested a crush of your's.
    What about ALEXANDER SKARSGARD as Christian Grey???
    Ever hear about a book called "THE LOVE MACHINE"??
    It was written by the late Jacquline Sussan, who wrote "Valley of the Doll's"
    Character in the book was named "Robin Stone".
    He was someone everyone wanted~and he was into "Kinky sex"
    Part was played by the late John Phillip Law of "Barberella" fame.
    Now he looked alot like Alexander does~ Tall,Blond,sexy
    Christian Grey reminds me of "Robin Stone".

    Some of these comments are BANANAS.
    First, I loved the idea of Charlie playing this role. I am a huge Charlie fan in general, SOA especially. We all know he didn't back out because he didn't have time. People flipped out when their ideal person was not cast. We can't all win, Charlie was my ideal CG I was happy, everyone is going to feel disappointment at some point with this.. HOWEVER let me say, this film is a MESS. They have not announced more than 3 characters, and maybe Charlie realized it was bound to flop. They don't have their stuff together and got out while he could..

    People should show him some respect, he's a really great actor!

    I wouldn't anticipate anyone really famous taking on this role, they I think will go with someone lesser known like Dakota, because everyone will have 'film' commitments. Ian, Matt, Ryan, I don't see any of them touching this role.

    While popular it was pretty much popular for being a terribly written joke. 50 shades was a fad that has already died out completely. By the time this movie actually got made and released no one would give two shits.

  41. 41

    Re: NookiesWA – Sorry to burst your bubble but this story was written in fan fiction form years ago and became huge when converted into book form. I read it back when it was online and I still love it, as do many, many others. So if it is a fad…it is one that seems to be lasting an awfully long time.

    Re: Sammy – Fifty Shades has a plot? 9 1/2 Weeks, Secretary has plot. Fifty Shades is just a poorly written book that seemed it was written by hormonal tween.

  43. Mangina says – reply to this


    Re: ok_then – Just because it's on the best seller list doesn't mean the quality of the work is any good. I'll say it now and I'll say it again. Fifty Shades make a mockery of real good erotica. Obviously, that's lost on you because you're a so called adult pining for some fictionalized character who doesn't exist and in reality who be some abusive asshole in the real world! Stick with your YA novels because your idea of romanticized characters is limited to fluff pieces instead of complicated reads. Then again, I doubt you would go beyond anything that was written by badly stolen version of a Twilight fanfic.

    Charlie has been cast in Crimson Peak & Triple Nine both due for release in 2015 that with his Sons of Anarchy commitments would make him a very busy actor indeed over the next year. Pity as Charlie would have made an excellent Grey, he is an extremely talented actor, its Dakota Johnson everyone wants gone from the role of Ana, 60-70% of fans in various polls have said she is wrong for the part & I agree she is neither a talented enough actress nor does she fit the physical description of the books, frankly she looks way to old for the part.

    You are wrong. Harry Potter sold approximately 450 million books, you fucking moron. There are over 30 books on the list before it even makes an appearance. Get your facts straight before spewing false information.

    You are WRONG. Harry Potter sold approximately 450 million books worldwide, you fucking moron. There are over 30 books on the list before 50 Shades even makes an appearance. Get your facts straight before spewing false information. And a book on the best sellers list is only on there because they sold a lot of books, not because the quality of the writing was good. Everyone I know who read and loved the series are socially immature. I bought all 3 books on Nook and did not like them, but I read them so I could see what was the big deal, and I wasn't going to be one of those people who criticizes a book without reading it. A lot of people did the same, thus adding to the numbers of books sold and getting them on the best sellers list inadvertently.

    No doubt that Charlie would have kicked ass as CG because he can ACT!!! The gorgeousness is just an added benefit ;) BUT as a Charlie fan I am SOOOO happy he walked - he's too good for this role and these crazy fans. I read FSOG and loved the love story but it can't get beyond the BDSM slant…shouldn't be a movie, leave it be as a book Charlie, you dodged a bullet that you knew was wrong for you - rock on!!!

  48. 48

    The books are SAD pieces of "mommy porn" that are just flat out pathetic. Could nto belive Ibought into all the hype over the books and wasted time and $s reading them. The movie(s) will be a joke as well. NOBODY coudl actand make them worthwhile.

    I am thrilled that Charlie came to his senses. If he prides himself a serious actor, it's not a good fit for his career.

  50. Dee says – reply to this


    Smart move. He's well respected now because of Sons, him and that movie would've ended up just like the Rob from Twilight…roles like that are just teenage fan girl roles which no one but those teen girls and horny housewives appreciate. Twilight is a nation wide laughing stalk and no one really took it seriously just like they wont take this film seriously

  51. 51

    Good for you, Charlie Hunnam! I don't even wish for any porn star to "tarnish" his/her image with this trash pretending to be literature. Being attached to this crap is something you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy. It's your turn now, Dakota!
