50 Shades of Filthy Fabulous-ness

So I'm not much of a bibliophile because I honestly can never find books that interest me. Lately there has been a craze over the 50 Shades of Grey Series. Once I heard the synopsis I had to admit my curiosity was piqued. I bought the first book and needless to say I GOT HOOKED! I could not put them down and read all 3 books in 5 days ( and i probably would have finished them even sooner if I hadn't had to tend to that little thing called SLEEP)  This book really has you thinking, is BDSM so taboo or are we all just a bunch of prudes?? lol  Aside from the lustful nature of the book, the romance and mystery is also very intriguing and they are definitely a must read!

So on a rainy night in New York, I sat down with a nice glass of wine and finished the last chapter of the book and WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED! So naturally, now that its over I did what any other neurotic fan would do... mentally cast who I would like to play the significant characters in the movie adaptation! Ha! So here are my suggestions... I'd love to hear what you guys & dolls think! Comment below!

Christian Grey

Ian Somerhalder  vs.   Henry Cavill
Both of these boys definitely have the sex appeal and brooding stare down pat! Christian needs to be played by a man who can command the screen not only by looks but by the emotion of the character. And let's be serious, to perform some of that dirty dialogue and acts, we need someone who can really deliver and make all the little housewives blush!

Anastasia Steele

Emilia Clarke vs. Felicity Jones
 Both ladies have that sweet doe eyed baby face. Anastasia's character has such a transformation from meek virgin to a strong willed & stubborn force that manages to subdue the likes of Christian Grey. I have to admit I'm a huge Game of Thrones fan and Emilia's character on the show. I feel her character on the show mirrors Ana in some ways so I'm leaning a little more towards her.

Elena Lincoln

Michelle Pfeiffer
She is HANDS DOWN the only person I can feel can play Elena. She is stunning and seems to have only gotten more beautiful with age. We have seen her play every type of role under the sun! Just a stare from those insanely captivating cat eyes could intimidate the likes of Ana Steele. I'm pretty sure a lot of men would let her be their "Mrs. Robinson"

Kate Kavanagh & Elliot Grey

Holland Roden & Chris Hemsworth
Holland is no doubt beautiful but I think she can also bring that feisty attitude of Kate to life. A lot of people have suggested Chris to play Christian but the reality is I don't think he has that dark, mysterious side. I think he fits much better as Elliot the good looking "teddy bear".

It's a small list because these are really the people I envisioned while reading the books. Which actors did you imagine???
