It's a been a little while since we've had any news surrounding the "mommy porn" adaptation, "Fifty Shades Of Grey." While the brewing movie gained a director this summer in Sam Taylor-Johnson, casting continues to elude fans, with only rumor and speculation kicking around at the moment. We've seen a number of names tossed around thus far for the leads of Christian and Anastasia—Felicity Jones, Emma Watson, Stephen Amell, Elizabeth Olsen, Alex Pettyfer, Shailene Woodley, Alicia Vikander—but it's basically been a mix of wishful thinking. But now you can tell your Mom to start considering a couple of other folks.

Apparently, producers for the movie are doing some heavy breathing for Charlie Hunnam to take the role of Christian Grey. He's reportedly a "prime target" and he was seen recently saving the world with his buff bod in "Pacific Rim," and there's probably a hilarious sexual pun to be made out of all of this, so we'll let you make those jokes below. Meanwhile, another rumor is kicking around that model Cara Delevingne has auditioned for the movie, though not in the lead role of Anastasia Steele. We haven't read the book... There are other characters? We thought it was just a couple hundred pages of sexin'.

Anyway, debate and complain below. Still no release date or word on when this will roll into production, but it seems everyone is taking their time to make sure it's done right. [Twitch/Digital Spy]

    Whoever in the hell thinks that charlie hunnam is hot is either blind or has no brain, taste or hell screw that, any of the above..........he doesnt even come close to being worthy of christian wow what a muck up on the part of casting directors and they can go on saying we should get over it coz of there stupid so called reasons for not casting our favourites just remeber guys without support your stupid little porno would result to nothing......oh wait never mind you already did that by casting the most rediculous fool for what was supposed to be a god anyway i guess the stupid will always be among us......obviously you dont enjoy orgasms coz last time i checked thats not what you get when you look at hunnam.

    If chalie hunnam plays Grey someone is nuts and I'm not interested in seeing him play C.G. He's ugly!

  • My Truth | August 24, 2013 9:28 AMReply

    This guy isn't even hot !! let alone to be christian grey which is supposed to be extremely hot !!

  • rondalynne | August 23, 2013 7:48 PMReply

    Christian Grey / ALEX PETTYFER Definitely YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No one else would do.

  • Nidia | August 23, 2013 11:40 AMReply

    I feel a great pick for Christian Grey would be Henry Cavill. He suits the character much better.

  • Melissa | August 22, 2013 10:22 PMReply

    it has to be CHARLIE HUNNAM!!!!!!!!!!! he's everyone's eye candy now!

  • Courtney | September 2, 2013 1:38 AM

    I totally think it should be Charlie Hunnam. He is a very good looking man and would make a good Christian Grey!

  • Lori White | August 22, 2013 7:32 PMReply

    It has to be Henry Cavill. He is Christian Grey!!!!!!!!!!

  • Racy | August 22, 2013 4:44 PMReply

    Amazing isn't it how many people deny having read the 50 Shades series but still feel they are experts on them? I read all 3 of them, liked them and didn't see any more erotica in them than most other books. Don't care who says differently, Charlie Hunnam would make a great Christian Grey!! So there!!

  • Katie | August 22, 2013 1:38 PMReply

    This is all really starting to annoy me. Just pick a Christian already!! How is this movie supposesd to open next summer if they have yet to even cast it? And if they do in fact have someone chosen, why all the secrecy?? I personally think Matt Bomer or Henry Cavill fits the character description to a Tee, but I'd put money on that it won't be Henry (too bad though, because I would love to see him naked...). Come on now producers!

  • Nina Lively | August 22, 2013 11:32 AMReply

    OMG NO Charlie is a good actor but I'm sorry James he is know Christian Grey. But Matt Bomer is and he's perfect please chose him please.

  • christina | August 22, 2013 7:42 AMReply

    OMG I never looked at Charlie for that character. The part he would make believable based on the power and in control aspect which he has in SOA. Hair colour would have to change and his walk would have to change. As for the role of Ana they need to go new and fresh or Emma Watson

  • Zoe | August 22, 2013 7:29 AMReply

    Hmmmmmmm I think Charlie would play that role really well,......

  • Samantha | August 21, 2013 5:37 PMReply

    Charlie all the way! I will be there to see you in this role. Mmmmmmm, yummy! Lol

  • susan | August 21, 2013 5:27 PMReply

    LOL! This has got to be a joke. CG is subscribed as a stunningly beautifull Man, with the most mesmerizing, piercing sparkling eyes. This Guy fit nothing of that description.

  • Racy | August 22, 2013 4:47 PM

    What part of that does not describe Charlie?

  • Amy | August 21, 2013 3:55 PMReply

    Would LOVE Charlie in this movie! I normally don't read books like this but have to say I really enjoyed them. There will always be bashers but being that I'm a HUGE SOA fan & one of Charlie in particular, I would go see this a few times if he was in it & would buy it too.

  • Ditto to 'Unbankable Say What?' | August 21, 2013 12:43 PMReply

    What cave have you been inhabiting, 'Unbankable'????? Millions upon millions (upon millions upon millions...) of readers in America have bought all 3 of the novels in this series. Do a little research...

  • Xas | August 21, 2013 3:57 PM

    And finally, if the formula is so succesful, so how many A-list and B-list actors are rejected or dropped up the project as a plague? Even if somehow is bankable, it would mean a career suicide for many of them.

    People, I know you have an idea of casting, but let be honest with this, the best Focus Features can make is:

    a. Hire novel actors -With zero background- who haven't anything to lose
    b. A desperate actor for spotlight.

  • Xas | August 21, 2013 3:52 PM

    That's the same reason of "Beautiful Creatures", "The Deep End of the Ocean" and other failed adaptation of succesful books. Just because a book is having millions of readers doesn't mean all the readers will see the flick. Let's say why not?:

    The story is cheesy with only an attractive card (Sex). Just check how many films related as "erotic thrillers" or similar. 9 of 10 failed miserable at box office. Sure, there are exceptions like Magic Mike, but again -Exceptions and novelty factor help a lot-. Right now, the market of sex is in home -TV and Internet-.

    Fifty Shades of Grey biggest asset is the sex -Let face it, is not story-, but then, we heard stories of convert as R. So at the end, no all the fans will be pleased.

  • Chrystin | August 21, 2013 12:13 PMReply

    Charlie has played many roles. He can clean up his rough around the edges look. clean cut and in a suit... yeah I can see it. And he will be the deciding factor on weather or not to take on this roll. There are many actors who could take on this roll .. not sure who would fit it.because there are so many. As far as Ana ... there's a long list in my head who could play her... lets all just hope who ever gets these rolls are sweet pieces of eye candy and can play the part...

  • ~T | August 21, 2013 10:03 AMReply

    As hot as Charlie is, he has too much sarcasm in his acting to portray Christian as he was described in the books, same with Ian Somerhalder (although his costar Nina could be the perfect Ana). The only actor for Christian is Henry Cavill - he has the looks, the acting skills, the hot body, and he can pull off the inner torture (just check out his work in the Tudors).

    I think Paul Walker would be a great Ethan, Christian's older cocky brother, and Blake Lively could definitely play Kate. Again, Nina Dobrev could be Ana, but I think Ellen Page could be a good choice as well, but for some reason I always pictured Olivia Wilde when I read the books. Minka Kelly is hot too, she could totally pull off Ana. Although Ana is supposed to be only 22-ish, she's an "old soul" so to speak and very mature for her age, therefore Hollywood could cast someone older to play her.

    Now - who would play Mrs. Elena Lincoln?? Charlize Theron is certainly a great choice, but I think the producers need to be cautious that the scenes are not stolen away from Ana and Christian. She should be intimidating and gorgeous, but not steal the show. Charlize would steal the show. Sharon Stone is too old, unfortunately, because she would be great at it, same with Kim Catrall. Uma Therman could probably do it. I like Diane Lane as Christian's mom, but she played Superman's mom when Henry played him, so that could be a bit too deja vu. Some have also suggested Cate Blanchett as Elena, but I like her better as Christian's mom as well - a well respected doctor with a warm heart, protective of Christian and welcoming of Ana at the same time. Heidi Klum or Gisele Bunchen, although they are models and not actors, they could pull off Elena without stealing the show.

    Clearly I've thought too much about this, but those are my 2 cents. Enjoy!

  • jforlife | August 21, 2013 5:34 AMReply

    I think if Charlie took this role it would be career suicide. Any well accomplished actor needs to steer clear of this movie.

  • Penney Nile | August 21, 2013 4:55 AMReply

    Most of the people I have heard talking about this movie have Ian Somerhalder on their fevered brains for Christian. Have the producers considered him?

  • Tamara | August 21, 2013 1:57 AMReply

    Yes, yes, yes. Charlie Hunnam should be cast as Christian Grey. He is sexy as all get up and what ive seen of him in sex scenes he has that down pat. I hope he gets the lead role.

  • Brittany | August 20, 2013 11:24 PMReply

    Stephen Amell would be perfect for Christain Grey - he's exactly what I pictured!!
    Either Elizabeth Olsen or Alicia Vikander would be perfect for Annastasia!!! Super excited for this movie to come out!!

  • Amy T | August 20, 2013 11:01 PMReply

    I think Charlie is sexy but he might be a good Elliot

  • Alisha | August 20, 2013 10:34 PMReply

    I think that Christian Bale would make a good Mr. Grey. He is sexy enough and looks amazing in a suit.

  • Jaime | August 21, 2013 12:55 AM

    I agree whole heartedly!!! I remember him when he played in American Psycho... He would be perfect I think.

  • Tally | August 20, 2013 10:25 PMReply

    I enjoyed reading the comments. I have no idea what the book is about.

  • Really?!?! | August 20, 2013 10:21 PMReply

    Okay, so I'm pretty sure he is booked, he's shooting Sons until Nov/Dec, then he jumps into John Hillcoat's Triple Nine and then into GDT's Crimson Peak in February, then back into Sons final season, so I don't think they'd be able to get him unless they pushed the film 12 months. Plus this is the guy who passed on Thor, you really think he would take this?!

  • Laurie | August 20, 2013 10:44 PM

    I think he was passed UP for Thor.

  • Ana | August 20, 2013 9:40 PMReply

    Matt Bomer would make a perfect Christian Grey.

  • Nina C. | August 20, 2013 9:07 PMReply

    After watching The Butler, I think that Alex Pettyfer is perfect as Christian Grey. He exuded that unemotional straight to the point cruelty that is Christian. I hope Charlie does not take this role. This role should go to an actor who is relatively unknown so that if it bombs it will not tarnish his career.

  • dee | August 20, 2013 8:57 PMReply

    If Charlie takes this role, I will lose all respect for him and stop watching Sons. The hype over the books and movie is disgusting. The one book I made myself finish reading was horrible, I absolutely could not force myself to read the others. The so called leading man was a controlling jerk and she was a complete twit. The author of this rubbish should be reviled not adored.

  • Dawn | August 20, 2013 7:33 PMReply

    I have been saying this from the beginning, he could always die his hair dark copper red. And I know he has the attitude, Ive seen it on Sons, maybe they should just have his onscreen girlfriend Maggie Siff play Anastasia, they already have awesome chemistry.

  • oh please she just won't do! | August 20, 2013 11:38 PM

    if maggie plays any part in the movie it should be Gia or maybe even Grace she is to old and stiff to play Ana..

  • Nicky | August 20, 2013 11:36 PM

    I don't think they have the best chemistry either but I think Kellan Lutz would be a great Christian. oh and fyi Maggie is not his onscreen girlfriend, they got married =)

  • Allie | August 20, 2013 9:10 PM

    I hope to good maggie siff doesnt get that role she is not attractive by any means she is more manly than anything and chemistry Dawn really its not even there

  • Christina | August 20, 2013 8:14 PM

    Maggie Siff could not portray Anastasia. I think it's a nice idea, but through the whole movie, anyone who has seen SOA would be thinking Jax and Tara. Not to mention, she doesn't have that innocent, untouched virgin look about her. And (no offence to Maggie because I love her) Anastasia is a young character........ I just don't think she would fit the role.

  • jaxteller | August 20, 2013 8:11 PM

    OMG YES!! I never thought of that mix for these parts! It'd be out of this world! Such a great duo

  • julie | August 20, 2013 7:59 PM

    Yes! I hope he get and wants the part! I must say I also soooooo agree with Maggie Siff to play Anastasia! Never did I think of her...But couldn't agree more!!!!!

  • Kelly | August 20, 2013 7:43 PM

    I totally agree! They have an awesome chemistry in Sons! Would be cool to see them do this movie together!

  • UNBANKABLE IMPORTED FICTION | August 20, 2013 6:51 PMReply

    Well, the marketing trolls like this. Too bad for it that America hasn't even heard of the book, let alone read it.

  • Debbie | August 22, 2013 2:40 PM

    Sorry but you must have been living under a rock the last couple of years. Practically everyone has heard of this book and most people I know have read all three books in the series. As for the cast they need a young innocent looking girl to play Ana and a tall dark extremely handsome type to play Christian. I can't picture actor in the role at all. Plus the eyes need to be spectacular.

  • unbankable say what? | August 20, 2013 11:40 PM

    we are talking about 50 shades right? pretty sure most of AMERICA has heard of it let alone read it...

  • Alana | August 20, 2013 6:45 PMReply

    this would be absolutely AMAZING! he would play the role PERFECT :) Hes sooooo Sexy!!!!!!

  • Rhonda | August 20, 2013 6:24 PMReply

    Charlie Hunnam is an AMAZING actor. Before Pacific Rim, before SOA; There was Nicholas Nickelby. He was wonderful in that movie. He is truly gifted and more than able to transform from one role to the next. No matter what his role, I have no doubt about his acting skills. I would more than welcome his adaptation of Christian Grey. I look forward to all his career has to offer us fans!

  • catherine | August 20, 2013 6:03 PMReply

    I LOVE charlie! I probably wouldnt bother watching the movie if he wasnt in it. And for everyone saying he should stick to motorcycles...yes he does look sexy as hell on one, but he's played many different roles and you'd be amazed to see how versatile he is!

  • Gayle | August 25, 2013 1:13 PM

    You're right and for all the ones nay saying you've probably never seen him clean shaven. He has an absolutely handsome sexy face and clear BLUE eyes!

  • Chris Hemsworth as Christian Grey | August 20, 2013 5:45 PMReply

    with as much as i LOVE Charlie, and would LOVE to see him in some of those scenes (with NO Clothes On), he is not the Christian Grey that I picture in my head.
    Now for Cara, she's way too tall.
    Anastasia needs to be 5'5" or shorter, and Christian Grey needs to be 5'8" and taller.
    However, I would LOVE to see Taylor Kitsch as Taylor.
    Let me know what you think of my somewhat choices (listed under the photos).

    I think Charlie would fit the bill perfectly. That is if he has the time. lol! He is hot and can be conservative and demanding and dirty! if anyone gets it i think that he should be the one!! i just hope that Kristen Stuart isn't going to be Anastasia.... i would hate to see her have the pleasure of getting to make out with such a divine man!!!

  • Diana | August 20, 2013 6:00 PM

    Kristen Stewart will never touch this role with a 10 foot pole. It is nothing more than mummy porn and not anything to brag about. Good luck to those who think that this book is worthy of being adapted as a movie and to the HW actors who consider this to be included in their resume.

  • Lee & sie | August 20, 2013 5:27 PMReply

    In my opinion Charlie is ideal for christian grey even tho he is rugged. Noone thought heath ledger could pull of the joker but he killed it give charlie a chance. For anastasia im pullin for emma watson hands down

  • jenny bias | August 20, 2013 5:25 PMReply

    I think that Charlie would be a good choice, but I can also see Adam Levine in the role of Christian, not sure on the woman's part

  • Aboslutely love me some Levine BUT... | August 20, 2013 11:46 PM

    I don't think Adam would fit the part well. Christian needs to be more built.. I totally agree an above comment that Kellan Lutz would be perfect for the role though..

  • jessica | August 20, 2013 5:34 PM

    Emma would be perfect!!! love her and she is beautiful and a great actress!!!

  • Kim | August 20, 2013 4:56 PMReply

    At first thought I was thinking no not Charlie for this.... but then I started imagining some of the scenes and I'm thinking Crack that whip Charlie!!! No shirt with his hair falling forward over his face a bit.... Oh yeah!!!

  • Kim | August 20, 2013 4:47 PMReply

    I heart Charlie but his features are to rough to play the finely manicured Christian. Can't picture him in a suit. Paul Walker on the other hand.....

  • Kelly | August 20, 2013 4:31 PMReply

    Although I am a tremendous Charlie fan, he isn't right for the role. Doesn't portray Christian well. Alexander Skarsgard would be perfect. I know he was considered, but I don't know where that has all landed...

  • Jenni | August 20, 2013 5:06 PM

    I agree Alexander would be good, and I just watched the True Blood Finale, and it's looking like they may have killed him off :( So... looks like he's free!
    I could totally deal with Charlie too, but I also agree with Kim, I think he is a bit rugged for it, but make up in Hollywood is pretty amazing!

  • Jack | August 20, 2013 4:54 PM

    Definitely Skarsgard

  • Natalie | August 20, 2013 4:27 PMReply

    Charlie is quite possibly the sexiest man on Earth however, he is so not meant for this role. When I think of him I don't think sleek multimillion filler business owner with a red room of pain fetish. I think sexy motorcycles and tattoos. He mos definitely needs to stay where he belongs. On a Harley with his shirt off.

  • Christine | August 20, 2013 1:48 PMReply

    Rumors as they've all been thus far! Charlie Hunnam doesn't fit the character at all, and neither does Cara. She is the opposite of Anastasia in every way, and doesn't even fit the characters Kate or Mia and they're both curvy and Kate is bombshell gorgeous.

  • Nicole | August 20, 2013 4:54 PM

    I agree that this isn't a role for Charlie. Cara is in for a supporting role, not Ana! she's probably going for Ana's best friend Kate, who is supposed to be "model gorgeous" so that's what makes sense.

  • Jessica | August 20, 2013 2:14 PM

    I agree. I LOVE Charlie. Like A lot. And I feel that he would be ruined in this movie. He's an amazing actor and he could totally pull it off, but I don't like him for it. He's rough around the edges in an obvious way and I always pictured as being clean cut with his edge hidden. I don't know about this Cara so I can't say anything about her.

  • megan | August 20, 2013 12:55 PMReply

    This is completely false. The 50 fandom have been spreading this for months. Charlie would kill his career if he took on this role anyway.
