If I were given the chance to pick the cast for the Lead role of the novel 'Fifty Shades of Gray', I'll choose either Ian Somerhalder or Colin Egglesfield to portray the mysterious, 'mercurial' and sexy Christian Grey. While Felicity Jones or Alexis Bledel (or Camilla Belle) would portray the witty but innocent Anastasia Steele.
Rumors are spreading that this novel will be turned into a movie, and which my guess would be challenging to the future staff and director because as far as I can remember, the book predominantly consists of erotic scenes between Christian and Ana, which might be criticized
mostly by individuals who are conservative by some individuals. I wonder how the director will work on these scenes. Having read E.L. James' "Fifty Shades of Gray", "Fifty Shades Darker" and "Fifty Shades Freed", my mind wandered through the possibilities on the situation of the other characters encountered by the couple at the end, which I consider the downside part. The author barely gave an idea to Christian Grey's family, to Elena and his ex-husband, to Jack Hyde and Elizabeth Morgan, and other recurring characters. It seems like the book purely revolves around the two of them, but honestly, I enjoyed reading it especially the exchange of love notes (or e-mails) between Christian and Ana, which I wish that they won't cut any part of it in the movie because this would be the most thrilling part of the book. Honestly, I have no regrets on reading this book out of my growing curiosity.
I guess many readers are patiently waiting and stowing their twitchy palms to see who will be chosen to play the leading roles. As for now, in my own perspective, these people can possibly portray the roles effectively:
