yep, i'm gonna do it... i'm actually going to write a post about the smut that is 50 shades of grey. i'm not going to do into any kind of steamy details about the book, seeing as how my face would go scarlet. but! i do want to voice my opinion on the bookturnedmovie idea. let's just say that i loved the books. so much so that i read all 3 in about 2 days. wowza! but i'm not sure how they'll translate into a movie. how would they include all of the details without it being XXX rated? if you haven't read the books, you should probably stop here with me telling you that you should read them, then come back and assess.
if you have read the books, i want to know your opinions! when i first heard they were being turned into movies, i was a little shocked. my fifty will be personified into an actual person?! there's no way. then i heard ian somerhalder was tossed around for the role. i'm sorry, kiddies, but he is no christian grey.
(this was apparently the most used image from people trying to show why it should be him.)
sure, he's somewhat attractive, but he's no christian grey. i'm pretty sure i would not skip a heartbeat if i saw him in a coffee shop, like every woman (including ana) does throughout the book. he doesn't look strong, he doesn't look like he could protect someone, and from the little snippet i saw on youtube of his acting on the vampire diaries, he could not have the personality of christian grey either. granted, he could always beef up for the roll... but i'm just still not convinced and would be really disappointed if he was chosen.
another thing i've heard thrown around is that the author, e.l. james, is considering playing off of twilight and casting both kristin stewart and robert pattinson. WHAT THE WHAT?! is she trying to ruin things for everyone? ana is not awkward, and i have never seen kristin be anything but. needless to say, the story will be left in the books for me if that happens. there's no way i would ruin the love story of 50 shades of grey by seeing the two of them on stage again.
now let's get to who i think would be a great christian grey, colin egglesfield. i'll let pictures do the talking...
BECAUSE JUST YES. am i the only one who sees christian grey written all over this man? well, he'll need some copper hair... but give him a dye job and i'm sold. the second picture? he even has the fingers! FINGERS. okay, maybe i'm just slightly obsessed and not really opening my mind up to any other actors, but let's get real here. who do you guys think would do christian's character proud??
as for ana, i don't really have a person in mind... i like the thought of alexis bledel.
she has the whole bright blue, doe-eyed thing going on. she looks young enough. she's skinny minny, like ana should be. plus, i would love to give a big woot woot for the gilmore girls! i just don't know how sexual she could be... and well, we can automatically assume that a lot of sex will be had in the movie. who do you guys have in mind for ana?
hopefully some of you can look past the fact that i am posting this on my, uh, family blog? (i never know what to categorize this thing as!) and i'm looking forward to reading the comments on this one. yay smut!!
