Hilarious Fan Memes to 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie Casting [PHOTOS]
Charlie Hunnam of "Sons of Anarchy" and Dakota Johnson of "21 Jump Street" officially nabbed the lead parts of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele respectively. Following the news, hilarious memes flooded the web. Obviously, quite a lot of fans were clearly outraged and disappointed with the final cast for "Fifty Shades of Grey."
Looks like Matt Bomer and Emilia Clarke won't be starring in the film adaptation of E.L. James best-selling erotica novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey." Despite the number of fans rooting for Matt and Emilia, the final say all boiled down to producers and E.L. James. Sticking true to what Dana Brunetti claimed, unknown stars were certainly cast as Christian and Ana.
Apparently, some fans weren't at all pleased with the choices. Diehard fans of the novels who after finding out the official cast had even threatened to boycott the film. This could be avoided of course if Matt Bomer would replace Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey which is entirely impossible.
With the film set for release nationwide by August 1, 2014, filming should begin anytime soon. Thus, recasting roles for the lead parts of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele is impractical. Fans will just have to bite the bullet and accept the fact that Charlie and Dakota are the next big Hollywood stars in the S&M film.
Still, the meme reactions to the cast choices continue to spread like wildfire on the web. Check out the slideshow to see a few hilarious memes following the announcement of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" cast.
