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?

I think Alexis Bledel is the PERFECT choice. First, her looks are perfect for Ana and also she has this innocence about her to begin with. As well as that, I can see her being playful and flirty and curious about Christian's deep past. Everyone else mentioned is either too sexy or too innocent to play Ana. And as for Christian? Nailed it!

Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel is PERFECT for the past. Ian looks fucking terrifying and Ana has pale blue eyes, pale skin and dark brown hair and she's American, how can Emma Watson be perfect for this? It would ruin her image and Harry Potter for me.

Matt Bomer and Alexis for Ana and Christian :D <3

Ian, yes- totally, those eyes are soooo captivating. but HELL NO EMMA. Ana had BLUE EYES read the FIRST CHAPTER OF THE BOOK DAMNIT

Laura Hutton

I vote for Ian Also,but Emma as Anastasia no way.. Lucy Hale or the girl who plays Alexandria on Nikita would be my choice:)

Jamie Goll

No way Emma watson is a very bad choice they need to choose there characters very carfuly because if you cast the wrong people no one is going to watch it and you will ruin the whole movie i would go with Liam Helmworth

Ian will work as this character if coppery highlights are added to his hair or better yet if his hair is dyed a coppery color but i believe a big mistake is being made in casting emma watson as anastasia just can't picture her playing the part, have the producers even thought about casting a soap opera star out of work or better yet an unknown actress, this could be the role for another superstar in the making!

after reading laura hutton's review i have to agree with her mention of the actress who plays alexandria on nikita, when she first starred on nikita i thought she was just a plain jane actress just like anastasia but she has blossomed into a beautiful woman, again, just like i picture anastasia! To me this is one actress the producers definately should look into!

ian isnt bad, but... idk about emma..not because of the harry potter thing just.. idk she doesnt scream ana to me.
