    Dakota looks awkward and miscast in all those photos esp the one where she’s wearing converse. The guy, you can clearly see that he’s used to doing photoshoots. lol at the fact that they may be trying hard to make her look “alexis bledel” as possible with the bangs and the doe eye look.

    Um, this is who they picked for Ana? That’s bullshit, she looks hardly anything like Ana is described and looks old and not very innocent despite her efforts. He looks like a wimp here too.

    @fifty shade of bad writing:
    I agree. Not to mention the millions of hurting individuals out there (who won’t see the film) who suffer from child abuse are being exploited. And who are told that love cures all because some fool takes it upon herself to expose aching souls for money writing horribly-written dialogue and unrealistic scenes that make anyone who knows anyone who suffers so much from this ailment piss-roaring mad.

    The casting director messed up. He looks like a serial killer. They needed someone that women would fantasized about. She looks old for 24.

    Wait, they’re not going to give him his trademark gray eyes? Oh, okay. And we have a leaning photo when we all, or anyone whose read at least one book (all I could manage to get through) he does not like being touche? Eh? Who’s in charge of the shoot? Anyone who read the book? Is the director near? Someone, anyone, who knows stuff? Lord and Entertainment Weekly is a huge publication. Details matter people. Everything matters.

    lol Says:

    i think they are alright! people should stop all the negative comments and try looking at the positive side of things. remember how everyone was criticizing about robert pattinson being casted as edward? well it turned out pretty well…

    i believe jamie and dakota are 2 talented individuals. we’ll just wait for the movie ! :D

    Is the dude standing on a box? Because we can see their upper body seems to be the same size, specially in the 2nd pic. Am I the only one who finds he’s a bit short?

    i am sick to freaking death of hearing about this movie. the books were trash, i cant see this movie being any better, no matter who plays the parts.

    b Says:

    I read the books a week ago (gooooooooood awful, how did these become famous?) and while I think Dornan is sexy, he doesn’t really fit the build of Christian Grey. I just saw a picture of Tom Brady looking pretty good, he was walking with Gisele looking casual ( but I thought the entire look would look better as Christian. Not saying he should be THAT tall or even look like Tom, but body style and shape, a taller muscular body instead of someone who looks a little shorter and not as muscular (like Dornan looks in these pictures). And Dakota does look way off as Anastasia. Didn’t think Bledel should have played her, but someone similar who looks a little smaller, more mousy and demure and shy looking than Dakota does in these pictures.

  24. 24
    b Says:

    This book was originally Twilight fan fiction, right? So knowing it was going off of Stephanie’s book and who Stephanie originally wanted as Edward, I think Henry Cavill would have looked better in this role. Not saying he should have taken it now, but had he not done Man of Steel, I think he would have been perfect in this role. He was overly muscular in Man of Steel, but he could have toned it down. He was pretty good looking and not overly muscular in The Tudors. I know many wanted Matt Bomer but he’s too old looking and I don’t get the appeal.

  25. 25
    Anna Says:

    I would agree with this casting if their roles were reversed. She looks much more like a Dom.

  26. 26
    Sheyenne Says:

    I don’t see why people are overrating. It’s a movie! Everyone needs to leave them alone and stop going crazy because they don’t look like what we expected. I’m excited for the movie hopefully it does well.

    breezedash Says:

    What’s wrong with these books? I really don’t understand why people hate them so. Just books for women, with a lot of sex scenes, so what???
    P.S. Dorman push me off with his Christian-image look. He’s SO NOT C. Grey, really. He looks different. I hope maybe his talent will help him and he’ll does this role well…

    ***END WHITE SUPREMACY in the NFL*** !!! The NFL and COCA COLA are promoting RACISM, BIGOTRY, and ETHNIC BULLYING with the sponsorship of the Washington “Redskins” team nickname. They are supporting, enabling, and profiting off of Institutional Racism. The NFL, Redskins, and sponsor COCA COLA are violating Federal Labor Laws by promoting racial discrimination in the workplace WITH racial slurs and ethnic hostility.
    End the ethnic Bullying and Institutional Racism perpetuated by writing to COCA COLA, and your Senator or Congressman to strip the NFL from its tax exempt status. As Taxpaying citizens of the United States, we demand that our government end financial benefits to organizations that promote INSTITUTIONAL RACISM, Bigotry, and Ethnic BULLYING.

    M Says:

    Well, it seems that my imagination is pretty different of EL James in what regards Christian and Anastasia.
    She looks too mature than she’s described in the book, and the guy looks much younger than Christian supposed to be.

    Jessie Says:

    I only saw the shape of her arm, especially around the elbow and it look hilarious to me. I don’t know if it’s the way it’s photo-shopped but I can’t stop laughing.
    Ok, enough frivolity. No one is going to be perfect for these roles, people will always disagree. I’m still with the person who can’t believe this ghastly fiction is going to be a film.
    Of course the books made millions and they want to cash in on that, but they were horribly written which is more of a concern to me. Is there any doubt why literacy is going to .hell? There have been books about the subject matter around for years and all of the ones I read were better written. But the grown up Twilight crowd must have been locked in closets to be so overly titillated over the content .
    The sheer repetitiveness of the dialogue should make anyone who love to read pull their hair out. Listening to what’s inside of Ana’s head should be used as a form of torture. What a dumb little twat. Anyway, good luck with that, I have no interest in seeing it as I could barely make it halfway through the first book.

    LMAO, who in their right mind would believe this woman is an “innocent” blushing virgin??! And is this supposed to be the most beautiful man that makes women drop their panties with a simple look? Well, well, well, they really think 50shades fans are super stupid obviously, and judging by the enthusiastic reactions, maybe they are…

  41. 41
    Rose Says:

    Everybody wanted someone else. Personally I wanted Tom Welling and Alexis Bledel. But they didn’t have any money to pay for top celebrities, so they had to go with someone new not because they chose that, Yeah she’s cute, it’s just that she doesn’t portray 21, not even 24 which is her actual age! They still look hot together, so maybe there’s hope for this movie.

    Dakota looks too OLD and absolutely NOT inocent, (DID ANA HAS BANGS?), and He is Just NOT the Christian Grey I would choose he is UGLY!!!! O.o THIS MOVIE CAST IS JUST FAILED!! IT SUCKS! definitely not going to see that movie!

  49. 49
    eh Says:

    @M: your imagination isnt different from ELJ’s -the problem was NOONE wanted the roles. NONE of the actors ELJ wanted agreed to be in it…when she finally got someone she actually wanted (charlie hunnam) he took one look at the script and bailed.its a shame they had to settle. dana brunetti has said “theres alot more that goes into casting than just looks” -obviously brunetti didnt read the books otherwise he would’ve known that ELJ describes the characters “looks” every other page and its not just an oversight!

    Please FOR THE LOVE OF GOD SHUT UP. You all are so annoying. They picked these actors…so get over it. It’s just a movie. I did not imagine these actors EITHER for the parts, but I’m not shitting everywhere because of the casting. It’s an average book…it will probably do well in theaters…SO SHUT YOUR FACES.

    ALSO, You guys know DEEP DOWN Jamie is not ugly either. He’s a damn model.

  54. 54

    anna Says:

    @b: I also wanted Henry Cavill, I read the book thinking of him!! Dornan is really hot too, especially as the huntsman in once upon a time, but I’m not sure he fits the part, let’s wait and see! she, on the other hand, isn’t as pretty as Emilia Clarke, who I envisioned, but she looks shy and awkward as the character should be, so I’m fine with her being cast!

  57. 57
    anna Says:

    @M: No he isn’t, he’s supposed to be 27! Dornan is older, actually!

  58. 58

    America still hasn’t even heard of this stupid British book, let alone the movie and these two loser caucasian actors, so WHO CARES?? No one cares but the soulless marketing trolls on internet comment blogs such as this one, JJ.

    @Mike: Don’t know where you’re coming from. The American species comes in light-skinned white to dark-skinned deep red, always has since evolution millions of years ago. From Montezuma to Geronimo, and from Washington to Tecumseh. America is an entire hemisphere. You write like an ill-educated alien, probably communist like british or chinese. Your politics don’t reflect America, obviously. The Washington Redskins And Our Great American Head are perfectly fine, obviously.

    She’s more like the dom and he the sub! This is an awful pair and are horribly cast for both characters! She is too tall and looks SO OLD and not beautiful and innocent, and he is too short and scrawny and not dominant looking. This is just pathetic!

    HAHAHA Dakota is trying so hard to look innocent but she’s failing miserably!! She looks old enough to be Christian’s mother btw!

    Mena Says:

    @SHUT IT: He is unattractive and his nose is ugly and so is dakota johnson and her nose too! If they wanted Jamie before then he would’ve been approached before, but he wasn’t! And Dakota was cast because they couldn’t get any of who they originally wanted for Ana and the director is friends with her mother!

  68. 68
    Heather Says:

    She is so homely and old looking. So not Ana! Ana in the books is petite, BEAUTIFUL, has a small sweet face and delicate profile and BIG eyes. Dakota is the opposite. The only thing she embodies of Ana is her pale skin and being slender. Jamie looks too small and not powerful at all! He’ll have to stand on a box when she is in heels!

    breezedash @ 11/13/2013 at 12:07 pm #27
    The books were not criticized for the content. James isn’t the first one to wrote steamy sex or about BDSM. Nothing is shocking about that if you’ve read adult literature in the past few years. What is abhorrent about her books is that they are so badly written. The whole premise of the books is ridiculous.

    @allison: totally agree

  76. 76
    Jen Says:

    gosh they tried to make her give off that ‘alexis bledel’ innocent vibe…which to me has failed. If they wanted that, they should have just hired alexis lol
    cannot picture him as CG at all; one of the posters above mentioned gisele’s husband tom and to me they’re exactly right with that. someone much more similar to his looks would have been better imo
    don’t know what the casting directors were thinking… oh well

  77. 77

    So, besides the British marketing trolls you see here on this comment board and a few others still left, this misplaced British book never sold within America, the one-time target market for this fictional book. So, then, these British marketing trolls are barking to no one. The Americans didn’t buy the bogus book and they haven’t even heard of it or this bogus movie. Good luck with that, losers. God save your king, my eye.

    isha Says:

    LOL…Someone said it right…Why are you guys trying to make this Dakota look like Alexis Bledel..If they don’t think Alexis is fit to be in their mighty movie,why make their Ana look like her..Alexis should sue these guys..and by the way Charlie Hunnam had better chemistry with this lassie..She looks like a poor copy of Madonna. :P Plus that guy looks like OMG..So laughable seriously,these high&mighty snooty casting crew made a major mess by looking down upon fan favorites..Help!! LOL..they look almost funny than a wall is standing next to a wooden block..

  79. 79
    Dasha Says:

    FAIL!! He’s not Christian Grey! How can we fantasize on him? Grey is supposed to be drop dead gorgeous!

    HORRIBLE casting dakota!!!! Says:

    why are they making her look like alexis b.—not workin. she still looks too old for her years and NOTHING. NADA. ZIP. like the book describes anna to be. it wouldnt be a big deal if it werents for ELJ making a point of describing they’re looks every chance she got in the books. but she did!! dakota is the complete opposite of anna is in the books!

  84. 84
    very bad casting!! Says:

    regarding dakota johnson: for the peeps who come on here and say that people had the same reaction to twilight casting kristen stewart. BULLSH*T twilight author DIDNT make mention of her characters faces, bodies, hair, eyes, nose…lips! in EVERY chapter of her book like ELJ did in FSOG. so, they should’ve been WAY MORE detailed in the looks department when hiring the actors for this film!!!!!!!!!!

  85. 85
    jen Says:

    alexis may be 32, but she still has that innocent girl look to her, which from what i can see, a few other posters seem to think the same. with her looks, people would probably not even care to look up her age.

  86. 86
    wtf?? Says:

    they settled BIG TIME….with dakota!!

  87. 87
    em, seriously, NO! Says:

    LOLLLL did you see the pics of dakota biting her lips…she looks so f*ing lame. her looks make her looks like 30 year old desperately trying to look young and innocent. THERE’S A REASON WHY SHE ALWAYS GOT THE PARTS IN OTHER FILMS OF THE GIRL GETTING BANGED…..SHE-DOESNT-LOOK-INNOCENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!AND IS HORRIBLY CAST!!

Ana isn’t supposed to be gorgeous, she’s supposed to be awkward, I think she’s doing a good job at it, here at least

  91. 91
    Kary Says:

    Whatever… the three books suck… It doesn’t matter who will be Christian Grey or Ana Steele because the books are BAD. So, the movie will suck just like twilight suck and no one will save this sh*t. I don’t understand why is a best seller.

    @anna YOU’RE CRAZY!!!! To EVERONE HERE who’s stated they’re trying to make her look like alexis B. your 100% correct!!! Have you READ the books?!?!.. You must’ve read a VERY different version of FSOG. Anna thinks she’s ‘common’ but ALL THE MEN- CHRISTIAN, JOSE, PAUL, THE DUDE IN THE ELEVATOR, JACK, ETC. Thinks she’s beautiful… She’s beautiful. Petite and demure. AND Alexis b. is 32 but looks MUCH younger than Dakota. The number in age doesn’t matter, it’s about how she looks. And Dakota looks much older than the character in the books! anna has an upturned nose. Beautiful profile. Small face. And huge blue eyes..Dakota looks N-O-T-H-I-N-G!!!! like anna!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And remember ELJ mentions her description in every chapter. you can’t dismiss that when casting and they FAILED miserably with casting Dakota!

    It is amazing that when they announced a movie on the books. How fast they had preview videos with Henry Cavill and Matt Boner released. Now when they finally have picked the cast — they can’t seem to get a video together with these two characters.

    tree Says:

    I know everyone has a different idea of who Christian and Ana should be and what they should look like and they can’t please everyone. I have to say that neither of these actors are what I imagined. Ana is supposed to look innocent, Dakota Johnson in no way looks innocent, she is very plain looking and there is nothing that draws you in. As for Jamie, he is too thin and once you shave the beard he loses that sexy edge. Neither do anything for me, I have my doubts about even going to the theatre to see this movie as I would rather continue to use my imagination

    haste is waste!!!! Says:

    @tree: YES!! couldnt have said it better !this casting will mess with the imagination. theres a reason dakota was never cast before as an innocent- she DOESNT LOOK THHE PART!!. many ppl feel the same way. they’ve turned peoplel off with the casting. theyre so busy wanting to make the movie and get it out to theatres before ppl “lose interest” theyve forgotten one of the most important things. ELJ MAKES NOTE OF THEIR LOOKS EVERY CHANCE SHE GETS IN THE BOOK. THIS WAS A HUGE PART OF THE ATTRACTION TO THE BOOKS!! YOU CANT OVERLOOK THAT-AT ALL!! AND THEY DID!! incredibly bad casting dakota.

    they're desperate!! Says:

    they’re tryin so hard with her. hence the word “TRYIN” aint happenin, she flew under the radar bec when she was anounced as anastasia, people were more focused on charlie and who would be CTG. she looks way too old, has not a shred of innocence to her look and doesnt look anything like anastasia!! they cant hide behind the “its not only the looks when casting” bec IN THIS CASE, WITH THIS TRILOGY, IT IS A HUGE PART!!!! they settled and failed miserably casting dakota!

    a great production team would’ve searched high and lo and everywhere in between for a great cast, NOT SETTLED for 2nd, in this case, last best! its the worst casting. they dont get it. all they see is dollar signs and dont give a sh*t about the artistry nor the fans. dana brunetti said “many actors they approached didnt want the roles for various reasons”. then get your A$$ in gear and search the world over-LITERALLY! for the perfect pair. they were in such a hurry for fear of fans losing interest, they did exactly that by choosing the cast they did. this isnt the twilight series. the characters in FSOG werent just mentioned they became a HUGE part of the books success. dakota couldnt be further from the anna described in the book!horrible choice!!!

    All the actors they asked wanted NO part in this debacle production. this production team only cares about filling their personal pockets and dont give a sh*t about the fans!!! they cant be this stupid and not see what most fans see —>you CAN’T NEGATE the characters look in the book when making a movie especially when the author decribes their looks over and over and over again !! they’re trying so hard to sell dakota but take a good look at all the polls and blogs, comments etc – its unanimously agreed MOST fans thin ,the casting is horrid, especially dakota!!

    no wonder so many fans are losing interest! bottom line. they FAILED. you can’t hide a bad script (two writers added to fix the original script) ,,,the producers have no idea what women want, the casting director is pathetic- the casting is a debacle!,,,the director clearlyhired and based anna on *herself* as dakota looks identical to her (the director) NOT the character described a million times in the trilogy (pathetic) and the studio is just dying for the cash flow..its sad bec this could’ve been great but you CANNOT use an actress that most ALL fans are utterly against and think shes going to be a good protaginst to the telling of the story. this film will make them the money they want only bec of the built in audience but it will NOT be a good CALIBER movie.–the whole production team went from being respected to laughable and quite frankly.. pathetic!!!!

    the built in audience has already lost interest since the (horrible) cast was announced. many of the blogs, and twiiter accounts have been put off completely. the people that go see the first movie will have to suffer thru dakota as anna, they will not go for the 2nd and 3rd.(they dont get how much people are against dakota for anna-this is not twilight, this is FSOG, where the characters are described intricately chapter by chapter) this will not be a successful franchise. their greed will backfire on them, and its already showing!

    no to dakota! Says:

    horrible casting! it all starts from the top- they hired two producers, an arrogant moron and a **** who’s married to a “bachelor’ show contestant, dana brunshmucky and michael de stupica. they have no idea what women want nor do they care! all they see is $$$$. they dont give a sh*t about the artistry nor the fans. team 50- what a sad bunch!
