    worst casting evah! Says:

    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 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.

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

    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!

    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.

    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

    @: So to try and win your lawsuit, you come and ***** 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.

    Allie ~ AKA Mrs. Jax Teller Says:

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

    Cate Says:

    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 Says:

    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 Says:

    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 Says:

    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.

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