Are you getting sick and tired of all the casting rumors floating around when it comes to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie? It's kinda like, just pick 'em already! But then two incredible actors had to throw their hats into the ring and make me seriously reconsider who'd be the perfect Anastasia Steele & Christian Grey.
Think about this for a second. Think long and hard. Why not ... Will Ferrell & Zach Galifianakis? They'd be amazing! The two have undeniable chemistry, and they're clearly not afraid to go shirtless. And they were gracious enough to give us a sneak preview of how they'd do in the roles in this hilarious video. (Why is it so damn funny when men read out loud from this book?)
I love how the soft, porn-y music starts and stops thanks to their poignant commentary.
Commentary such as: "He's holding his own erection?!" exclaims Galifianakis in shock. Anyway, he continues ... "'It's so big and growing; his erection is above the water line.'"
And then interrupts himself: "Where are they, in a child's pool?"
Oh god. Classic stuff.
After reading a couple excerpts, they might be all for it too! As Will points out, "The writing is exquisite!" Folks, I think all our casting problems are solved. You're welcome.
What do you think about Will Ferrell & Zach Galifianakis as Anastasia Steele & Christian Grey?
