Fifty Shades of Grey Finally Cast Let the Bondage Begin

It has taken a year, with lots of names being bandied about to play the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. That is a long time to wait for your favorite erotic book to be made into a steamy film. But the wait is over, Fifty Shades of Grey has finally been cast. So let the bondage begin!

Author E L James got onto her Twitter account Monday September 2 to excitedly tweet the good news. First though, she tweeted: “Good moaning all. Hold on to your hats…,” before dropping the big news.

After her teasing tweet, she decided not to be cruel and she followed up her tweet with the specifics: “I am delighted to let you know that the lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.”

In her next tweet, she went on to let the world know who would play Christian: “The gorgeous and talented Charlie Hunnam will be Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.”

E L James will not be the only woman excited to hear that the film version of Fifty Shades of Grey has finally been cast. Millions of female fans of the book will also be overly pleased for the bondage to begin on the big screen. The two main actors that have been named are a combination of well known and not-so well known.

Charlie Hunnam is a fan favorite from Sons of Anarchy. He also starred in the summer blockbuster Pacific Rim. Female fans of the erotic trilogy will be pleased to see Charlie as the BDSM inclined Grey. Hunnam has the ability to be a very “manly” man who should have no problem in the role.

Anastasia Steele is being played by Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith’s little girl, Dakota Johnson. Daddy Don Johnson was recently in Django Unchained as Big Daddy. It is not known how he feels about his daughter playing the “sexually awakened” heroine of the book.

Dakota made her motion picture debut in the 1999 film Crazy in Alabama. In the film she and her real-life half sister played Melanie Griffith’s daughters. The film was directed by Melanie’s husband Antonio Banderas.

Johnson’s biggest role was in the 2010 film The Social Network. She’s also worked on the big screen version of 21 Jump Street and The Five Year Engagement. She has been starring in the Fox Network series, Ben and Kate where she plays Kate Fox.

Charlie Hunnam is best known for his role of Jackson “Jax” Teller in the Sons of Anarchy, but the English actor got his first bit of recognition for his portrayal of the lovesick Nathan Maloney in the 1999 television show, Queer as Folk. Charlie cemented his spot as a fan favorite in the 2002 film Abandon which he made with Tom Cruise’s ex, Katie Holmes.

E L James’ erotic trilogy traces the relationship between billionaire Christian Grey and the young Anastasia Steele who becomes “sexually awakened” after Grey introduces her to the joys of BDSM. The books skyrocketed to the top of the best selling charts when they were published. Millions of women became devout fans. The Fifty Shades trilogy has sold more than 70 million copies all over the world.

As well as the news that Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson will be playing Grey and Steele in the film, the production side has also been named. Sam Taylor-Johnson will direct, Kelly Marcel is adapting the book to a screenplay and the film’s producers will be Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti.

Now that Fifty Shades of Grey has been finally cast, the bondage can begin. The film is scheduled to premiere in 2014.
