'50 Shades of Grey' Author Talks Movie Cast & She's Already Picked Her Christian & Ana

Flicks 254

E L JamesShe obviously has a strong opinion on who should be given the leading roles in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie, and it's getting harder and harder for author E. L. James to stay quiet as far as movie casting rumors go.

She's remained fairly tight-lipped so far as to who will snag what will probably turn out to be the biggest movie roles of 2013 -- but from clues she gave in an interview with Katie Couric, it sounds like E. L. James has already chosen her perfect Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

So, who did she name?!?

Well, apparently she has three actors in mind for Christian's role, and four actresses in mind to play Ana.

(That's ALL she was willing to give us? Gah!)

Ok, if that's all she's giving up, let's see what we can do with the clues. There have already been so many names floating around as to who should take on the roles of Ana and Christian, so it would be kind of a shock if her picks don't fall within the realm of those who have already been mentioned.

Based on her husband's little slip on Ryan Gosling being cast as Christian, I'd say he's on the list for sure. And considering she based Christian's character on Robert Pattinson -- his name has to be running through her mind as well. As for her third pick? My gut tells me it's likely either Ian Somerhalder or Alexander Skarsgard.

Moving on to Anastasia Steele -- Shailene Woodley's name has been brought up by E. L. James herself, and I guess we have to throw Kristen Stewart into the mix since Fifty Shades of Grey is based on Twilight. That leaves two more spots for her Ana favorites, which most likely go to either Lucy Hale, Alexis Bledel, or Emma Watson. (But for the sake of Harry Potter fans, let's hope Hermione stays innocent.)

Who else do you think E. L. James might choose to play Christian and Ana?

If they cast KStew, it will not be 1/10th as successful as if they cast a likable current young actress with more sex appeal and better acting skills....

Matt Bomer would make the PERFECT Christian Grey.  I don't care if he's openly gay, I've seen him act on the show While Collar and he is so sensual and sexy.  He just has a charming and mysterious quality and ALL of the looks to go with the package.  Great hair, very handsome face, gorgeous athletic body.  I can't see anyone else playing this role besides him.  I do the Alexis Bledel as the choice for Anastacia.  Alexis has beautiful blue eyes and dark hair and a thin frame, just the way Anastacia is described in the book.  I'd love to see them together in this movie.

No way would Ryan Gosling touch this movie with a ten-foot pole. He's too good for it. Alexander Skarsgard would be great, and I'd vote for Alexis Bledel for Ana.

I pictured Ryan Gosling and Alexis Bledel when I read the books so I have to go with them!

I see Ryan Gosling and Ashley Greene as Christian and Ana!!!!

Sarah Morris Messina

I have said it 100 times and I say it again.... Ian Somerhalder is perfect for Christian... It's in his eyes.... He has that intense look.. And I like Mila Kunis for Ana.... She fits the profile and would be perfect!

Leanne Wells

I seriously don't see the appeal in Ryan gosling. I think Jessie Pavelka for Christian and I am still open to who could play Ana, although I can see Crystal Reed playing her well x

I would like to see Emma Stone, she has that look of innocense about her. She is also very beautiful.

Eva Zechner

I would love to see Alexis Bledel in the role of Anastasia. Somehow she fits perfectly for me cuz i always pictured Ana like her.
