    Are they making Fifty Shades a PARODY? I LOVE JAMIE DORNAN, but the female casts their casting is absolute JOKE!

  • Lola

  • Arrow 12

    This is a joke….Right?

  • stephanie

    You’re having a laugh right??

  • jaymay

    well that just seems really random. None of these people seem to fit the roles at all, but I guess we all had our own visions of what they would look like….

  • Bill

    This movie’s going to be a crap!

  • Maria

    And did y’all hear KATIE HOLMES IS SLATED FOR MRS. (ELENA) ROBINSON???? WTF?? They casts the males right but the female casts are absolute JOKE!

  • Kaci

    What are the casting people thinking and doing?
    If Jamie Dornan put on some muscle, he would be perfect!!
    But the women…what?? Betty White would be better playing them all.
    She looks better than them all so far!! Better actress than them all too!!
    Plus 2 versions??
    Hello, greedy money-grabbers!!
    Fire the entire cast excluding Max and Jamie and get some new crew because I smell a flop!!

  • umm

    This movie is officially a joke.

  • Okayyy

    I was on board…until now.

  • go go

    trash meet trash

  • NO

    A bunch of bull. Definitely not watching now.

  • Dejavu

    It’s just all about making $$$$ from desperate lonely women…that’s all. Basically, they’re the ones who are going to shell out money for this crap.

  • EndOfTime

    this movie is a joke anyway

  • Candice

    I havent read the bool nor am i a racist. But a white person has a black sister? Thats weired.

  • lui

    Creo que nadie se va a ver esta PelĂ­cula.

  • Candice

    Adopted sister… Sorry i didnt read all the info above.. Lol

  • Uffff

    @Candice: yes you are, cause if you read clearly it says adopted sister, doesn’t mean they are biological siblings

  • lol

    …sadly this movie just like crappy Twilight will make money because there are alot of lonely females who fantasize about these characters and out of curiosity will still go see it.

  • Lol

    @Candice: But Rita Ora is not black!!! She is from Albania. Thats in Europe.

  • gabii

    its all about the healing of Billionaire Grey , who cares how the actors look , just imagine Twilight cast because this is what E.L. James did

  • jun

    How about giving the job to an actor, ya know someone who’s actually studied and has a passion for the craft instead of giving the opportunity to some slutty rubbish attention-seeker.

  • Grace

    This must be a joke, right? Who is casting this film? What the hell is Eirka James doing? She’s ruining her books with the choices. I thought the people involved made good films, I guess not. Razzie awards, here they come. This is horrible. Really, out of every single person in this world, actor or not this cast is the best they can do? I thought Mia was stunning with slick black hair cut into a bob. OMG! Forget about the movie, and stick to the books.

  • Kuki

    They must be jk,,, Rita ora is not fit to be his sister.. What I imagined Mia to be and what they have casted… it’s just so wrong in every level!

  • Maria


    Oh man I’m so confuse I picture Mia for that girl in Pretty Little Liars. the female castings is a JOKE!

  • nm


  • chelsea

    @nm: lol

  • NO

    @Candice: she’s not black.

  • Lily

    What the $%^&??? I always knew this film would be awful but this is gonna be worse than I thought. Get ready for Showgirls 2.0.

  • tick

    She should not bleach her hair. It looks so unnatural with her dark Slavic features. She looks like she has implants or a padded bra. She is so funny looking and cheap. No wonder she dated a Kartrashian. The only difference between Rita & Kim is that Rita can sing.

  • a


  • WTF

    Definitely not who I had in mind for Mia. Even if she were to dye her hair black it still wouldn’t work…. Rita’s personality is quite different from that of Mia’s but hey, if she is gonna act the part she better act it properly and convincingly as well.

  • Olivia


  • Elphie

    Really I was not going comment on the casting but I don’t see her as Mia Grey. I really wanted Samantha Barks as Mia. Yes the girl who play Esponie on Les Mis

  • Allianz

    I don’t get the casting for this at all. Jamie Dornan is great in The Fall withGillian Andrson, but he is no Christian Grey. Dakota Johnson is way too old for the role. And now this. I’m not going to bother seeing this as I don’t want the images I have of the characters from the book ruined by this very poor casting.

  • Nina

    @Kaci: The Betty White thing got me, I can’t stop laughing.

  • Lee

    Why, cause they look so much alike?

  • Sarah.

    Whoever does the casting is doing an awful job! Jeezzz!!

  • Sheyenne

    Okay so I’ve been one of the positive fans for this movie until this …. WHAT ARE THEY THINKING!?

  • Joanna

    Are the casting people drunk??
    This is awful!

  • SJ

    Wtf?? Mia is caucasian and she is described as tall in the books. Her and Mrs. R and the only 2 described as tall and Rita is only 5’5″! Dakota and Eloise are both taller than her and their respective characters are supposed to be more petite. Rita looks nothing like Mia even with raven hair. This is such a joke! Is this team incompetent or something? What a joke this has become.

  • Lauren

    Whoever is doing all the casting needs to FIRED! This is a JOKE just like Dakota, Jamie, Luke, and all the others! What the hell is this team doing?? I wonder if EL James got so caught up in the hype of the movie being made that she is letting it all slip.

  • ellen

    @Candice: Actually you trying not to be racial just made it more racist, seeing as Rita Ora is of middle eastern heritage and not black. plus they clearly said adopted sister of Christian Grey.
    the movie will be a flop, the actors chosen will have to show depth, which i don’t see happening.

  • Juliana

    NOOOOO!!! This has to be a joke, really… She can’t play Mia, she’s not fit for the role. And here I was, so excited!

  • Anne


  • RB

    Is there another version of the BOOK where the characters are like those cast that maybe wasn’t released? The choices so far are jokes! I smell a drastic Failure of this movie that had potential to be good.

  • angie1

    @lol: you are very likely correct ,,,,,, sad but true !!!

  • http://@humile ohno!

    WTF??!! SERIOUSLY??? She is totally not what I have imagined when I read the book. So wrong choice for a cast. What the hell is wrong with the crew?? I can now smell FLOP here. tsk. tsk. tsk.

  • Azula

    Seriously? The script must be sooooo bad the producers are soooo lack of confidence they are desperate enough to decide investing in a well known singer coz they know their leads are so lame can’t bring in box office revenue.
    Can’t wait for Feb. 2015 to see how big this flop will be!
    And Charlie what a smart lucky guy you are!

  • LMAO

    Yeah, next bring on Katie Holmes as Ms. Robinson and Cara Delevingne as Leila. And bang! Your circus feast is ready to go. So brilliant you are producers, writer, and director. Totally can’t wait to see!!
