New '50 Shades of Grey' Trailer Casts Ian Somerhalder With a Young, Innocent Anastasia (VIDEO)

Flicks 248

Ian SomerhalderThere's a brand new unofficial Fifty Shades of Grey movie trailer that has just hit the web, and while it's not really any sort of shock that Ian Somerhalder has been cast as Christian Grey in this video -- Celeb Dirty Laundry's choice for Anastasia Steele may leave you scratching your head a bit.

In other fan videos that have been made, Alexis Bledel has been a favorite for the part, but this particular trailer switches things up by casting a young actress who already has a highly iconic role associated with her.

I'm talking about Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series of films. Yep -- CDL thinks Emma Watson may be a genuine possibility to tackle Anastasia's role.

Here's the clip -- it doesn't show very much of either Ian or Emma, but it'll at least give you a small taste of this combination:

Ok, so I'm definitely behind Ian Somerhalder being Christian, because ... well DUH! But the whole Emma Watson thing is creeping me out just a tad. Yeah, yeah, she's 22 years old, so she's all grown up now and we should take her seriously and all that good stuff. But I just can't seem to get the image of a little girl in a Hogwarts uniform casting spells and doing wizardry out of my head every time I hear the name "Emma Watson."

Somehow I can't picture her lying over a bed getting spanked and biting her lip and being surprised at the fact that she's turned on by the brutal treatment Christian is giving her. Can't you just hear her saying, "Oh! Oh my ... STOP THAT RIGHT NOW!" in her cute little British accent and giggling the entire time? I know Ana has a certain element of innocence to her, but Emma Watson is way too sweet and naive to accurately play the role. (And aside from that, Ron Weasley would be hopelessly crushed.)

What are your thoughts on Emma as Anastasia Steele?

You have got to be kidding me!!!! they are the worst choice ever!!!! i wont watch it! fucking ruined the best films before they start!!! in no way does wither of them actors relate to the descriptions of Christian and Ana. So disappointed!

Jennifer Robinett

She has dark brown eyes. Doesn't work for me.

Joyce Ann Garcia Babael

I still go for Alexis Bledel. Also, Watson doesn't look brunette at all.

i think emma watson would be great as ms.steel so she can prove what a great actress she is and move on from Harry Potter i would personaly love to see her play this role

Eliud Rivera

I love Ian he's the perfect Christian but I'm sorry Emma is no Ana. The only Ana is Alexis B. she has every thing to play the part. Her looks alone scream Ana

Penny Gonzalez

Not my choice.  They need to follow the description of the people in the book, Christian has dark coppery colored hair.

Lauren J. Chiappa

Everybody keeps picking a British actor/actress...these characters WERE NOT BRITISH!

Anita Szot-Brown

Emma already said she is not interested in this role. But Ian would be perfect! <3

Sherry Howell Killough

I would love to see Ian play Christian....absolutely!!!  Emma Watson as Ana?....No way.

Jennifer Wood
