Lead Actors Named for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Film



After months of speculation, the forthcoming Fifty Shades of Grey film has found its ‘Anastasia’ and ‘Christian.’

E.L. James (the author of the steamy trilogy) announced the lead actress on Twitter yesterday.

She wrote, “I am delighted to let you know that the lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Johnson ( daughter of actors Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith) is a model-turned-actress. The 23-year-old last appeared on the now cancelled show, Ben and Kate.


Not too long after, James decided to reveal the actor who would be playing the domineering Christian Grey.

She tweeted, “The gorgeous and talented Charlie Hunnam will be Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.”


Fifty Shades of Grey is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2014.


What do you think of the choices for both roles?
