Hope you’re all getting moist in your nether regions for the upcoming watered-down 50 Shades of Grey movie that will not contain any of the explicit sex scenes that the entire book is based on! It’s gonna be GREAT! Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson have “chemistry” which they’ll totally put on show for you via a lot of lip biting and some sultry looks before the camera cuts when panties start dropping. I’m sure it’ll be everything that people who actually like that shite were hoping for.
In any case, we’ve got our first look at the poster for the film – which isn’t even due out until 2015, I might add. That seems like a bizarrely far away release date for a franchise whose popularity is already past its prime, right? Ah, whatever. I’m sure plenty of people will go to see “real passion” and the “moving storyline”.

Whoopdi-fuckin-do and all, but it turns out that Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson – the stars of the forthcoming big screen shitshow that will be the 50 Shades of Grey movie – have found “chemistry” together, both on AND off screen. Don’t get any freaky ideas into your head – Jamie is a family guy and I don’t think anyone cares what Dakota does with her life, but they’re just “hot” together.
From E! Online:
The highly anticipated film’s producer, Michael De Luca, spoke with E! News about how filming is going at the Producers Guild Awards over the weekend in Los Angeles.
“It’s hot,” he said of Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan’s chemistry throughout shooting. “I think we are a little more than halfway through but it’s going really good. I’m excited!”
So how are the future Mr. Grey and Anastasia Steele getting along with one another when the cameras aren’t rolling?
“The chemistry is there, they genuinely like each other,” De Luca revealed to us. “They’re enjoying the story, the story is so powerful.”
LOL, the story is so powerful? Dear God, please help the idiots who believe that to be a true statement. Powerfully awful? Powerfully boring and stereotypical? Powerfully geared towards bored housewives? Ah right, I guess that’s what they must’ve meant.

Jamie Dornan stars a Christian Grey for the new lolzfest Fifty Shades of Grey film and he’s on the cover of Entertainment Weekly in full Grey-ness, with Dakota Johnson, who plays what’s-her-face (Anastasia Steele).
This cover says it all, doesn’t it? It’s every bit as cheesy and horrible and creepy as we think it’s going to be. Look at her face! They’re not even showering her whole face. No, she must cover it, for she is terrified of master Grey. And look at him! He looks like J. Crew turned into a person and got drunk.
What do you guys think?

Charlie Hunnam surprised a lot of people when he gave up his role as Christian Grey in the upcoming crapfest Fifty Shades of Grey. No doubt Fifty Shades fans were thrilled as thousands of them were petitioning to get Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel. Well, sucks to be them, because it looks like Jamie Dornan is getting the role.
He was picked and now they’re going through negotiations. Producers want to start filming in November and that’s damn soon, so this is pretty close to happening. I’m guessing they wouldn’t announce it if it wasn’t going to happen. “They” is The Hollywood Reporter, and they’re usually spot-on about these things. Here’s some trivia on Mr. Dornan and the film from THC:
The UK-based Dornan was first revealed by as a contender for the role of kinky billionaire Grey by THR on Oct. 14. He actually was contacted before Hunnam officially dropped out and tested Friday opposite female lead Dakota Johnson for director Sam Taylor-Johnson, author EL James and producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti. Tony-nominated actor Billy Magnussen also tested, as did Francois Arnaud from The Borgias, according to sources.
I can never remember who the f-ck Jamie Dornan is. All I know him for is being married to Keira Knightley. Except turns out, they’re not married, they broke up, and she married some other dude. So I really have no idea who this kid is. Looks like that will soon change.

To be honest, I feel a little out of the loop here because I don’t even know who Jamie Dornan is. Actually, wait, I totally do – he plays the creepy murderer guy in that Gillian Anderson BBC1 drama The Fall and he was in Once Upon a Time in the first season. Wasn’t he also in Love, Actually or am I imagining that? Anyway, got it now. I suppose it only then makes sense for him to hop into a role like fucked up Christian Grey in 50 Shades, right? Charlie Hunnam got some common sense and dropped out (due to “scheduling conflicts”, of course) and now they need to replace him, so why not go from some massively muscular meathead to… a skinny brunette who’s a bit weedy and makes a really way too convincing serial killer? This movie is gonna be a hot mess.
Here’s The Hollywood Reporter‘s story (which is really about Charlie Hunnam’s “creative differences” with the team, etc):
Universal chairman Donna Langley, producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti, director Sam Taylor-Johnson and author EL James are said to have drafted a list of four men they want to read for the role. Although the list is being kept under NSA-level secrecy, THR.com revealed Oct. 13 that British TV stars Jamie Dornan, 31, and Christian Cooke, 26, are among the targets. Both actors came close to capturing the part the first time around but lost to Hunnam because the Sons of Anarchy star is a bigger name. (True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard also is being considered.)
Dornan could be emerging as a front-runner. Born in Northern Ireland, he’s a former Calvin Klein model, dated Keira Knightley for two years and played Sheriff Graham on the first season of ABC’s Once Upon a Time. According to a source, Dornan was contacted by Langley even before Hunnam officially dropped out Oct. 12. But a Dornan confidant says no overtures had been made at press time to the actor, who stars in British series The Fall, on which he plays a killer terrorizing Belfast. The fact that Dornan’s wife, actress-singer Amelia Warner, is pregnant also could complicate matters.
Let’s all get something straight here. Alexander Skarsgard wouldn’t touch this with a ten foot pole. Also, I even think Jamie Dornan is too good for this fuckery. Apparently the payday for this role is only $125,000, which seems super low in Hollywood money – especially considering how many middle aged, sexually frustrated housewives are going to flock to see it – so whoever’s taking it is getting a raw deal (no pun intended) any way you slice it.
Do you think Jamie Dornan would be a good Christian Grey? If not him, who?
