Grey-t Expectations (heehee)

Today the powers that be officially announced who is going to star in the new 50 Shades of Grey movie. Although I haven't read the books, I also don't live under a rock and therefore had a few expectations of my own regarding what said characters should look like. And by said characters, I'm obviously referring to the big chunk of hotness that is meant to be Christian Grey. For this infamous super sex machine, they have chosen 33 year old Brit Charlie Hunnam: 

What do we think? He's a bit... pretty. And that beard's really gross. Plus his eyes are pretty close together, thus giving him the appearance of a water rat. I've heard some people compare him to Heath Ledger but I mean seriously, who can compare to Heath? 

Ahhhhhh, Heeeeaaaatttttthhhh..... 

But on the positives, Charlie does have awesome abs (see left) and a British accent (imagine one since I don't have audio), and quite pretty eyes (even if they are in very close proximity). I can see how some ladies would swoon over him, but I can't help but feel that he's falling very short of my mental image. Christian is meant to be suave, sophisticated, arrogant as all hell. He absolutely MUST look great in a suit. Which is why I have concluded that Karen's Christian Grey is Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) from Suits. Mmmmmm..... Give me some of that cheese.


  1. NO! To both of those suggestions! Harvey's nowhere near suave and dark enough. I was always picturing a Christian Bale vibe - works that the name's are the same - think Batman meets American Psycho. Actually VERY Batman meets American Psycho - gadgets + twisted mind. Very dark and very hot.
    You can keep your hairy Brit and your cheesy lawyer! I'll stick to Mr Bale

  2. You're a cheesy lawyer! (And yes, since you actually are an attorney, that retort totally makes sense!)

  3. Hmm, attacking my character are you now? Do you not agree that Christian Bale would make a good choice? And who's playing Ana?

  4. Haven't the faintest idea who you are talking about, but like looking at the pictures!! Ha! Ha!
