Fans Outraged Over Casting Decisions for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’
Yesterday the lead roles were announced for the film adaptation of the novel Fifty Shades of Grey with Charlie Hunnam set to play billionaire Christian Grey, and Dakota Johnson slated for the role of literature student, Anastasia Steele.
Some dedicated fans of theFifty Shades of Grey Trilogy are outraged over the decisions for the lead roles. Speculation as to who would be cast fore these particular roles has been prime gossip since the announcement that a film was in the works.
While many fans have their own idea of that Christitan and Ana look like, Barbra Peace has made it her mission to have the cast changed. Upon learning that her choices for the leads, Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel, were not chosen she started an online petition at change.org.
The petition argues, "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."
As of this morning, the petition has already received more than 20,000 signatures.
