We are all reading it. This Shades of Grey book. Well, maybe some more than others. But I’ll tell ya, there is so much controversy surrounding this series of books.
Three books in total.
Yes, I’m reading them – you know, to see what all the fuss is about. Don’t worry, I’m not going to spoil it for those out there, not in the know. Just to say, when the movie is made, and it will, the director shall have an extremely difficult time trying to keep it within those spicy NC-17 boundaries. Recall that movie 9 1/2 Weeks? Google it if you don’t. Shades of Grey makes that storyline seem dull and boring by comparison. I discretely read mine on a kindle because carrying the book could give an interesting first impression around town.
Which brings me to the subject of this post, who should be cast in the main controversial roles?
After careful thought and sleepless nights, I have found and intriguing combination for this Shade of Grey story. A few friends have helped me out on this one, thanks guys, and thought it would be a lively Friday share.
Ladies and more ladies, I bring you Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.
Lead Actor Christian Grey: Henry Cavil (Tudors and Immortals) the curly hair, the eyes, the chin, muscles…ok fanning myself now.
Lead Actress Anastasia Steele: Emilia Clarke (Khaleesi from Game of Thrones) I know! Take away Emilia’s overly blonde hair from her Game of Thrones days and there is the perfect brunette underneath. Who Knew? Not to mention her scenes on Game of Thrones have somewhat, emphasize somewhat, have prepared her for the Shades of Grey role.
Here is another look:
Yep, that about nails it in my mind’s eye.
Do you have any other suggestions friends? I’m open to discussion before I have my casting people call their casting people.
Have sizzling mothers day.
