Yeah -- so I know there's a huge rat race in Hollywood right now to land the major roles in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, but a line really has to be drawn on who is and who is definitely not an acceptable option for any of the leading parts.
Because whoever does wind up playing Anastasia Steele, Christian Grey, Kate Kavanagh, and Elliot Grey needs to have exactly the right balance of sex appeal, sophistication, and of course -- the chosen actors need to have a bit of an edge.
And that's why casting one Twilight vampire in particular as Anastasia or Kate is a seriously bad idea.
No, I'm not referring to Kristen Stewart or Ashley Greene this time around. Would you believe that Dakota Fanning's name has popped up as a possible option? Yes -- little Dakota Fanning -- the golden-haired star who went from being this sweet little child actress to being one of the members of the Volturi in Twilight before we had a chance to blink.
When asked whether or not she would consider taking a role in the flick, she said, "Never say never to anything but I don't know. I have read the books."

Never say never? Um, I think Dakota has to say never when it comes to anything erotic. Take a moment and try and picture her being tied to a bed post, spanked, or in any sort of sexual scene, for that matter. Let me guess -- you can't do it, can you? It's because her sweet and innocent image is permanently burned into our brains and simply can't be erased.
There's absolutely no way she can be cast as Ana, and even Kate's role is way too much of a stretch. Dakota can't even associate with a sex-crazed submissive let alone play one herself. (It just isn't right.)
Do you agree, or can you actually see Dakota in Fifty Shades?
