Fifty Shades of Grey fans are the new Twilight fans in terms of the “you guys are absolutely nuts” factor. Casting for the lead actors in the Fifty Shades film was just announced. Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam “won” the roles, and fans are downright pissed. You see, they wanted Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel. And because they’re totally f-cking delusional, they think that writing a petition and getting signatures will change this. Here’s their petition, straight from Change.org:
Matt Bomer is the PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF CHRISTIAN GREY AND ALEXIS BLEDEL IS THE PERFECT ACTRESS TO REPRESENT ANASTASIA STEELE and if THEY ARE NOT, NOBODY WILL BE And I read the whole trilogy and I can assure that Matt is the perfect actor for this movie and Alexis too. So please PLEASE, all of the GREYsessed and Bomerettes in the world NEED those actors. They always will be for us the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. WE CAN DO ANYTHING GUYS, ANYTHING.
And here’s what they want you to (digitally) sign:
To:Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel always will be for us the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.
That isn’t how Hollywood works, everyone. When I checked, the petition 12,908 had signatures. When I refreshed about 2 minutes later, it had 12,983. They even made their own poster, for emphasis (above). “SHITT GUYSSSSS I’M SO PROUD OF EVERYONE WHO IS HELP RIGHT NOW,” says the petition’s founder.
