There'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?
