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 agree wholeheartedly with Ian Somerhalder as Christian because let's face it, he has the whole bad boy, dominating thing down pat! But I don't see Emma Watson as a good Ana. My choice is Lucy Hale and my 2nd choice could be Alexis Bleidel. But I also wanna post this. I noticed a LOT of people saying over and over that their eyes didn't match or that their hail color wasn't right on. If producers & directors thought like that, then alot of our favorite people from movies would have never been cast in roles! THERE IS SUCH A THING AS HAIR DYE & CONTACTS!!!! I mean, hello, Rob Pattinson doesn't have yellow or black eyes so should he have not been in Twilight? You can't think of the small things like that cause they can be easily corrected!!!

Gosh no no no and more no! They need someone young and innocent looking....i don't know if anyone watched the Bachelorette or the Bachelor Pad but when i read the book i picture the rich guy from texas who owns his own luxury line...he has the arrogance for it because this dude didn't show any of that...don't ruin the damn film please!

I either see Ian or Matt Bomer as Christian, but I only see Alexis Bledel as Ana.

Cynti Cardoso

The girl's eyes in the video belong to Nina Dobrev not Emma Watson first off.

But I definitely agree with the casting of Ian as Christian.
Anastasia however, should definitely go to Lucy Hale.

ANNE HATHAWAY!!!!!!!!!!! PERFECT FOR PART.. they can lighten this guys hair for the copper toned hair of Christian..

Lori Clark

Jesus, why does everyone care so much? IT'S A REALLY BAD SERIES FILLED WITH PORN AND BAD WRITING.

Shannon Hutcheson

I wouldn't read that trashy book and I won't be watching any movie made for it either.
