This morning my Twitter feed (@AmandaOnAir) BLEW UP with tweets about the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly. For months we've been speculating who will play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie and many fans of the book were disappointed with the annoucement of the actors who were cast. I just kept saying ... "let's wait and see what they look like together and on camera." I feel like we have to have SOME faith in the casting directors because a lot of riding on this film after the success of the books.
Ok, so "let's wait and see" has finally COME. A little bit. Today we get to see them in print, which is a fun first step. Follow this link to see the first look at Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson in character as the S&M couple Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.
Production of the book-turned-movie begins shooting in Vancouver on Dec. 2 and is set to be released on Valentine's Day, 2015.
So ... what do you think? Are they believable? Do they look like what you pictured while reading the books? I'm not sure i'm convinced.
