Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Should Be Cast In 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'

50 Shades Of Grey

Since the adult erotic novel began as a ‘Twilight’ fan fiction, it makes sense for Rob and Kristen to star in the film version of the book!

Fifty Shades Of Grey — the popular mommy porn that has hit Amazon’s best-seller list — is being turned into a movie. Deadline.com reports that Universal and Focus Features acquired the rights to the novel for a cool $5 million. Now that we know it will hit the big screen, it’s time to turn our attention to casting the big roles — and of course we think that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart would be perfect!

Fifty Shades is the story of billionaire Christian Grey and recent college grad Anastasia Steele who fall in love despite Christian wanting Ana to be his “submissive” in a Bondage-Discipline/Dominant-Submissive/Sado-Masochistic relationship.

However, the erotic novel originally began as an adult, alternate universe Twilight fan fiction, with Edward as the billionaire and Bella as the virginal Anastasia. But the names were changed when it was published. And although Fifty Shades is devoid of vampires and werewolves, fans of both will recognize the similarities between the two stories — including Christian’s adopted family and Anastasia’s best male friend Jose.

Since Robert doesn’t have any work lined up yet, and everyone is dying to see more steamy sex scenes between him and K-Stew, these two should definitely think about these roles.

Would you like to see Rob and Kristen in Fifty Shades, HollywoodLifers?

I could not agree more, the connection Robert and Kristen have whilst acting would inevitably make for a perfect Mr. Grey and Ana, I would absolutely adore to see this. I’m looking forward to the movie whatever the outcome!

From what i’ve seen of Kristen Stewart’s performances, she is a very capable actress. Same for Rob, but i have to say that acting out BDSM and the many fundamentals is something i don’t much think they can role play, let alone act out accordingly. This is no bash on them as stars, or their previous roles in Hollywood. i, myself, am a 24/7 submissive in BDSM. i have a Master that i attend to with all my heart, body, mind, and soul. It takes a lot of patience, understanding, trust, and love to establish that bond with some One. It’s not just a matter of “Could they portray it?” but “Do they know what it’s like?” BDSM is not something that can be acted out. It is something that has to be livied to understand. Many people only know of BDSM and it’s course outer layer, rather than the sweet underbelly it offers to T/those W/who are actually a part of that world. It’s not just a switch one can flip and suddenly be enlightened to, nor is it something that those who don’t understand can merely play at. It’s not really anything more than an isult, in my opinion, to have people who no nothing about the culture play a part in something that depicts U/us.
We, in essence, aren’t really depicted, but the fact remains that this trilogy, and it’s movie by extension, will be putting forth BDSM in today’s culture. It is not a problem to see people try and understand it, nor to want to spread such a thrilling way of life, but when it comes to BDSM, it’s never easy to find the right people.
It takes a long time to find a Master, Mistress, submissive, pet, or slave in the BDSM culture. At least, if you want the relationship to be lasting. The same should apply here when it comes to the movie and the roles the actors and actresses must portray. Don’t say that because the fan fic was off of Twilight that the movie should star he two. An actor and actress can only give their all, but what if their all isn’t enough to give? BDSM requires so much more than simple body language, tone and resonance of speech, and thought processes narrated. BDSM is an essence and has a core not many of the lifestyle, themselves, can understand wholly.

i just hope that there are others out there who know a bit about the lifestyle and are willing to show the rest of the world what BDSM can mean, and respect it. Haven’t read the books, and frankly, that doesn’t matter when it comes to picking people to play them. Apparence doesn’t even matter, when it comes to Vampire Diaries on the CW channel. What really matters is that the point is made and clear. That the morals are tangible and well laid out for the viewers to understand. Without that, you make people angry, because no one likes to not understand a movie that can be confusing. i’m not saying it has to be simple or broken down, but reasonably, the charas need to be portrayed by someone who knows what their doing.

Every actor who is chosen for the movie will have to do research and learn what the role entails. These two actors wanted to stretch the sexual parameters on the Twilight Saga movie series but because the movie was PG 13 they couldn’t. I think they would make a believable BDSM couple as Kristen Stewart is both a shy and a strong young woman while Pattinson has both strength and vulnerability in the Twilight series. I think this movie would be the next step for the acting couple.

I think Anne Hathaway would be good for anastasia and chris hemsworth for christian grey… or Joseph Morgan of Vampire Diaries

I think whoever plays Ana and Christian need to have real chemistry. Rob n Kristen have chemistry, I would like to see if they could take there acting to the next level n this film?This is nothing like twilight, so quit comparing, this is an erotic adventure n it would be nice to see if the two can show the audience they are ready for such rolls? I am 41 n I enjoyed twilight, but fifty is NOT TWILIGHT!! I think that rob n kris could pull it off, without the comparison of the last movie they did. I would like to see them out of there elimant. I really think they could give a whole different performance n that’s what I wanna see. Hope they r casted?

absolutely not. robert does not have the sex appeal that christian grey is described to have. robert is an average attractive, there certainly are much more attractive men in hollywood who would be more of a better fit for grey. on top of all of that, kristen stewart can hardly act – could you imagine her having to do erotic scenes with her dead stand-still face? definite turn OFF.

also on top of that, robert HATES twilight, i highly doubt he would want to star in a movie based off of a book that was originally supposed to be a twilight fan fiction.

I don’t agree. Robert P. has a mischievous very attractive quality that Christian Grey has and he’s very handsome in a boyish way. Christian is fairly young. Robert can also look older. The right director could pull some interesting performances from him. From his music videos one can see that he has depth and soul which just needs to be tapped.

I couldn’t stop picturing Robert while reading this but that’s probably because I knew it was inspired by ‘Twilight’ I think he could do the role fair justice but I could also see Ryan Phillipee or Alex Skarsgård. And for Anna I see again Kristen but I kind of hope not because I really could see Nina Dobrev, ‘The Vampire Diaries’ or Lily Collins, ‘Mirror Mirror’

I wouldn’t cast either of them. Christian Grey seems like a strong and sexy self made billionaire and as cute as Robert Pattinson is, he has more of a boyish charm than that of Mr. Grey. I would suggest (Ryan Phillipe) and for shy withdrawn Ana who’s beauty is subdued i would pick either (Olivia Wilde, Ashley Greene, Lucy Hale from pretty little liars). but that’s my opinion.

This book was written for them, Rob & Kristen. If you read the book – you can see both of them. I can’t think of anyone who could play their parts better than they could.
Don’t know if they would want the movie but I hope they do. How sexy would Rob be ????? WOW, no words.

Robert should play the role, it was based on him so he fits perfectly. Not so sure about Kristen though…Doesn’t show any emotions at all. The author wants uknowns ? I still think Robert should get the role.

I don’t think they should! Don’t get me wrong I love edward and bella I’m a true twilight fan I also love robs acting technics and I am amazed by kristen stewart I think she is the best actress for a long time. But no I wouldn’t like to see them again in a film like this as I love the edward bella relationship and to see them as other people so soon I don’t think it would work x

Everyone i know that has read these books hate the idea of Robert and kristan playing the parts! He is no where near attractive in my opinion and she is a horrible actress and the ruined twilight!! She has one reaction for everything!! I know many will be displeased if they are chosen. Ian somerholder or Paul walker would make perfect fifties ;) And I think they should get an unknown for the part of Anastasia (I wouldn’t mind Taylor Laurent playing Jose ;) )

Age ain’t nothing but a number for these loved-up A-Listers. My BF and I both think so! He is almost 10 years older than I. We met via ~~Agelessmeet .COM~~ a nice place for younger women and older men, or older women and younger men, to interact with each other! Maybe you wanna check it out or tell your friends :)

lol, they would NEVER do it. NO legitimate actors with established careers will do this. There’s a reason the author is claiming she wants “unknowns”. Because her book is crap and no real actors would go near it.
