  • nicann

    People need to stop complaining, no one cares if you like them or not. It all depends on the chemistry between the two. Wait till the movie comes out to judge.

  • romi

    i get dakota being in this but charlie is too good for this.

  • Verity

    NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO! Some things just need to left on the pages and not on the big screen.

  • Jenny

    @romi: exactly!

  • inês

    Bye Bye 50 shades…. :(

  • sammy

    I totally love Charlie and I really hoped he would pass this over… this movie will be crap :(

  • sj

    damn i dreamed it would be henry cavill, charlie is hot and all, but, no just no. doesnt feel right

  • http://impuretale Rei

    Thank you, Charlie Hunnam, for throwing yourself on this grenade so that I wouldn’t have to hate Chris Hemsworth as a person for taking such a horrible role.

  • *crickets*

    career suicide.
    the female lead’s an unattractive nobody but this guy had promise.

  • https://twitter.com/SaadGKhan SaadGKhan

    Felicity Jones would have been Perfect but seems like she does have a class and wouldn’t want to be remember as Bondaged Girl… Sorry but Dakota Johnsson is Ugly NOT pretty at all.
    Charlie Hunnam is a good actor but not Exceptionally Handsome as Christian Grey was suppose to be… its like Everyone Alist or soon to be Alist said NO and they had to adjust with Blist stars .. No offense Charlie you’re still better than Dakota Johnson.

  • linda

    Don’t like this casting at all

  • Sarah

    Charlie is so hoooooooooooooot. I would watch only for him :)

  • Sheyenne

    I love Charlie but I can’t picture it … I’m still gonna watch it though.

  • cleo

    Thanks but no thanks…

  • worst casting evah!

    who are these people no one will pay to see virtual unknowns in this movie. He looks like some typical bleach blonde dude from Cali and she is the daughter of Meanie Griffith ..wow what else has she done.

    this movie will go straight to DVD or leaked online

    at this point they should have paid Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson a truckload of money to do this movie, which is who fans of this book imagined in the roles anyway.

  • Cool

    Charlie has always been second Heath Ledger. I loved him in Nicholas Nickelby.

  • starsh

    what the heck is he thinking? this is a terrible career move – nobody will ever take him seriously again. From Sons of Anarchy to this! noooooo…

  • Red

    haha as expected no decent actor in Hollywood wanted anythign to do with this crap.

  • Flop

    HAHAHAHAHA! I cant believe this shitty book is being made into a movie

  • a guest

    I would have loved to have seen Rob and Kristen do this movie. But let’s face it we would have seen only NC17 Edward and Bella that way.
    Just remember how everyone HATED the idea of Rob being cast as Edward, and now look at how many (crazy, obsessive) fans he’s got! Godd luck, Charlie!

  • nasus1999

    I can understand so people thinking that Charlie is too good for this movie but I am guessing that those are the same people who are against the book in the first place. A lot of “A” list actors were named for this role and I kept thinking noooo they will be so bad, but Charlie is the first person that was mentioned that I could actually seeing being a good Christian. If you don’t believe me watch an episode of SOA. He is amazing.

  • lalala

    Currently watching SOA and was just thinking about how gorgeous he is and wondering why he doesn’t act in more stuff. I’m not a fan of 50 Shades but am willing to watch it if it means I get to see more Charlie

  • pandora

    still hoping that this is a hoax… who in their right mind would even want to be part of this piece of shit movie?!

  • LiiL

    Thanks for the “wonderful” casting… I wont watch it becasue of it, I think they should stop this project anyway, cause nobody wont buy a cinematicket… seriously?? Hunnam?? and the girl.,.who knows her??
    worst casting ever..
    Bomer& Bleder
    or Somerhalder&Clarke
    they should play these rolls.
    Dear director & writer!
    Why dont you check fan forums, or fanvideos on the internet??

  • b

    @: So to try and win your lawsuit, you come and bitch about it on JJ? :lmao: Okie dokie.

    As for this movie, I’ve heard the book is crap but some people were kind of looking forward to a hot guy and the sex stuff. But with this casting, I guess they want a crappy movie, huh? :lol: Alrighty then.

  • SHINE

    RIP Charlie Hunnam’s acting career

  • Lovely

    This is nothing more than a big budget HW porn film.

  • thomas

    @Lovely:

    perfect for americans

  • IMO

    No offense to the acting talent of these people but visually just NO!
    So disappointed.

  • lauren

    he is gross. UGHFDLKDSJKL!JKJKL!!

  • Paule

    He’s not attractive enough to play CG. Big fail :(

  • Allie ~ AKA Mrs. Jax Teller

    Guess I’ll watch this movie after all. Charlie is the only one that can make this movie good. He can play anything.

  • Cate

    LMAO! He’s very uncharismatic on the big screen which is weird because he is great on TV

    Funny thing is in interviews he always talks about only wanting to make quality movies but I guess they waved enough $$$ in front of this nose after their first 10 choices turned it down and he said yes to this soon to be fail of a movie.

    .

  • Cynthia

    I just can say…. WHY!!!! WHY!!!! WTH was E.L James thinking!!!!

  • Mia

    He’s hot!

  • Cynthia

    I mean, yes he is hot, but not what we expected…we had in our minds the perfect gentleman, and they just blow it away, what a disappointment!

  • Lilith

    Pheeww….. i am sooooooooo relieved that Henry Cavill won’t be playing in this piece of @#$$ . It would be the end of his carrier. But Charlie is a good actor and promising… what the hell was he thinking taking part is this? He must needed the money really bad! From Nicholas Nickelby to 50 Shades of Grey? Going downhill all the way…. :(

  • allison

    Two blonds? This is a mistake. Charlie Humman is good playing lovable tough guy on tv but can he play Richard Gere meets Mr Big? I don’t think so.
    This film will not be a big budget movie. I say no more than 15 mill.

  • Lilith

    *acting career…. sheesh…. i am so upset with Charlie that i don’t pay attention to my grammar…i apologize
