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 am sorry but it is Imperative that they at least stick to the description of the characters...Ana HAS to have BROWN hair and BLUE eyes! That is the main difference between her and Christians mother! C'mon!!! Ian is a good suggestion but Emma? No... not even with contacts. She is a good actress but I am sorry, not for this role. Lucy Hale, Ashley Greene, Amanda seyfried (Brunette) are some examples.

I hated that series. Emma Watson in a weird 'out of the norm' role for her would be the only thing that would make me go see that movie.

Ya'll are forgetting that no matter what actor/actress they pick for these parts will eventually fit the book descriptions very well after each that is cast gets a makeover to look the par. This is Hollywood, any actor/actress can look the part with some hair color/eye color/skin complexity changes. Personally, I don't care who they cast to play Christian and Ana, as long as who they pick can act worth a damn.

Also on a side note for those who decided to half ass read this article, Ian and Emma were not officially cast as Christian and Ana, this was a video that was "created" by someone. There are no Offical reports as of yet who is to be the actual Christian and Ana.

Ok.... first of all the only person I see as Christian Grey is Robert Pattinson. - that's just my opinion so please don't get all huffy on me. Second - I hope RP doesn't do it, think it would be a bad move. It would just pigeon hole him - again. Third - I am starting to come around to the idea of Ian Sumerhalder (is that how you spell it?) as an alternative BUT he could never be perfect in my eyes. Fourth - No no no no NO! to Emma Watson - she's just too....nice. Don't know who that other girl is - I'll Google her.
