Great choice since Robert Pattinson cannot act to save his life. He should stick to what he does best – have one night stands and get wasted!

Annie so agree with you ,however can’t think Rob would have wanted to do another franchise after just finishing one.There must be some other script out there with an adult theme if that’s what he’s after ,he says he is writing one himself so who knows,but hope its more mainstream without a depressing ending .

From what ENews said that EL James wanted Rob to play Christian Grey but apparently he wanted to much money and they couldn’t afford him. So how much did he want. Also didn’t the director when he was chosen want both Rob and Kristen for the Roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. He said that he would go after both of them because they were the right people for the roles. But obviously Rob wanted to much money. So I wonder how much they are paying the other 2 people to star in the Roles if they couldn’t afford Rob’s money that he wanted. I am a bit baffled because Charlie doesn’t fit the Christian Grey profile, he is not tall and does not have burnished hair. So is he going to dye his hair for the role and is he going to run his hands through his hair like Christian does in the books. Also does he sing and play the piano because in the books Christian does. If he doesn’t does that mean people won’t get to see Christian Grey sing or play the piano in the movie. Also Charlie has a tattoo on the left side of his chest are they going to cover that up, because Christian Grey doesn’t have tattoos or likes to be touched. Also he is to old in the books Christian is only 27 and he turned 28 in book 2. Charlie is 33 years old, why change the age of the Christian Grey that doesn’t make sense. Dakota Johnson doesn’t fit the profile of Anastasia either because Ana is small and petite with long brunette hair down past her waist, and she is beautiful. Dakota is tall and slim and is not very beautiful. Also is she going to dye her hair brown to fit the the story. I hope they don’t add parts to the movie that aren’t in the book and take pieces out that are in the book, because this will ruin the movie. If you are going to make a movie from a book you need to keep the movie as real to the book as possible not change/add/delete pieces from the book or movie. EL James wrote the books on the characters of Edward and Bella so why change them and put someone into the roles that don’t fit the profiles. That is just stupid and completely insane. Also why would you pair a 33 year old man with a 23 year old girl that is just ridiculous. So are they going to say that Charlie will be 27 in the movie and Dakota will be 21, because that are the ages of Christian and Ana. Ana turns 22 in book 3 in September. It will be very interesting to see how this is all going to work. Will EL James have as much say in the movies as Stephenie Meyers did with the Twilight movies. Also will she appear in the movies like Stephenie did that was just weird.

Fifty Shades is related to TWILIGHT! Rob is not gonna go back to Twilight or anything alike since that would be a career killing move – he has moved on in better projects and of course, they cannot afford it. Also FSOG was going to be HUGE if Rob was in it, not so much now thow…he doesn’t want that kind of attention again

Poor Charly Hunnam is a very handsome man but he has not the personality to the character. Rob and Ian would have been better choises for the role.

This guy is ugly as hell!!! He has silly face. He isn´t a good actor. He has nothing that I can like. I prefer to Bradley Cooper. Here, you can see a Bradley Cooper Gallery ->>☺drop70.com☺

They didnt have the money its obb to a blind man
to choose though people who in size frame and bear no resemblnce to the parts is daft
At least RP@KS looked the part they played as did all the cast bet they had far less money TW1

His body built looks like arnold schwarzenegger, he’s ruined my anticipation for the movie. Ian would have been a better christian grey, who the heck is this guy?

robert brought the house down with edward cullen and I know some of you hyppocrites probably own a box set of twilight. You are all stupid because christian grey was modelled around edward cullen who was brought to life EXCELLENTLY by Rob. So please STFU!!!

I dont like him anymore but from what Ive heard YES he did sound the look but he charges $12million a film the entire film probably wont cost that

So happy Charlie was picked for Christian!!!! I would have been very mad if Rob was picked. I don’t think he’s the best actor and he definitely doesn’t have the looks.

Very excited for Charlie!!!:)

How can that be, they were written with Rob and Kristen as Bella and Edward. She took Twilight and porned it up. You can correlate each person in Twilight to the characters in 50. But I’m glad Rob is not doing it. A list actors ran from it. They had to get CListers.

I doubt this is true. If the author really wanted Rob she could have made that a criteria for the book being made into a movie. The guy chosen seems like an accurate choice but the woman looks nothing like I had pictured Ana.

This is true. She wanted Rob. She said it openly. The casting is not good. This guy does not fit the book description of Christian. A listers stayed away from this. The 2 actors picked are not even B listers. Movie will go nowhere. They will have to tame it down if they want young tween girls. More mature women just won’t go in droves to see it. Sad they ruined it. I have lost interest. They had a zillion choices and they picked these 2. Nothing against them but EWwwwwwwww!

Trust me if EL James wanted Rob then she offer it to him….Evidently he turned her down. It wouldn’t have been a good career choice for him. I just can’t see MOMMY PORN as good game changer. He’s choosing artistic over porny smut.

Artistic…? The Rover… or playing a limo driver for two minutes??? He ruined Cosmopolis, so please no more “artistic” experiments. Go back to modelling!

apsara I’m laughing so I almost fall off my chair… Of course it’ completely BS that Rpatz was in the neigbourhood of being the first choice. There are reasons that he has clothes on in the Dior ad: Face it, his body is not very nice, he’s pudgy. At least Charley looks like a MAN!!!!!

NO hes TALLL SKINNY thats how most women like their men NOT BUFF and I dont like ROB
BUT his body is sex on legs there is a certain type of lady that likes men with huge 10 packs arems the size of barrells but not for most they want tall dark thin sexy and as much as i hate and i do to admit it Rob has that look. He either didnt want it or they dodnt want him or couldnt afford him easy!

I dont think Ian is likeable in real life he seems in his interviews to tihnk hes better than he is
Hes a tv actor good yes but not film material yet. Maybe EL didnt like him?
Maybe he wanted too much money? Hes in the seriews how could he get out of it?
Bit like P Brosnon all those years ago he was aasked to play James bond and the us TV series wouldnt let him go SO Timothy Dalton played 2 James Bonds then series finished and he was reasked and he too it maybe TV wouldnt ;let him go cos if he left Vampire that would be it really His brothers blonde flat nose not exactly good looking or sexy the baddies better looking
Hey that might have been an idea hes English good looking blonde though so have to dye hair
Hes a proven bastard baddie but he has his kind moments hmmmmmm too late now though
They dye is cast all hail the failure of 50shades

No wonder…… Just as kind of his many characters not far from kissing and sex …seems no other characters can be played by him…. Specialist exposure of his charming, good looking, sexy abs and expertise in bed with so many woman characters…… Never see his action role or good mind…. So his character mirroring of his life recently…… Dior advs is soft porn
