The TV stars, Hunnam of Sons of Anarchy and Johnson of Ben and Kate, make the leap to the big screen in the highly anticipated film based on the blockbuster book by E.L. James. Hunnam will play the steely and sexy Christian Grey and Johnson won the part of Anastasia Steele.

God she is all kinds of wrong for Ana! She looks absolutely nothing like her. She's nearly the opposite! They probably think we'll warm up to it or change our minds once the movie is released but I highly doubt that! I can't warm up to an actor playing part that looks nothing like the character is so greatly described. I don't even want to spend money on seeing the film and contributing to the possible makings of movies 2 and 3 with this cast.
