'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?

I think Emmy Rossum would be great for the role of Ana. Can't decide who would be good for Christian yet!

I don't Ryan Gosling would be good as Christian though I agree with Matt Bommer or Ian Sommerholder or the other guy from Vampire Diaries...as for Ana... I could see Anna Paquin or Ashley Greene and though some would like to see Pattinson and Stewart, I can't! I like them in Twilight but can't see them in this...though I refer to Fifty Shades as Twilight Xrated!!!

 I have not read the books yet, But,Ryon Gosling is not a good looking man at all. Don't want, Rob Pattinson, in it either. He could play the part, but don't want him to be type cast, in the future. Kristen Stewart, isn't innocent enough in the face. Really don't care, about anyone else. Ian Somerhalder has the perfect eye's for it & he does play the bad boy, type of role already. Maybe leaning, his way, a little more. I don't think Rob & Kristen, will ever want to be in the same movie again. Well, from 1 woman's, point of view!!!!
