Another day, another Fifty Shades of Grey movie rumor. This time, British actress Felicity Jones' name has been thrown into the hat of possible ladies to play Anastasia. Never heard of her? Me neither. Well, that's a lie. I know her from Like Crazy and from a really great quote she gave about makeup providing a cathartic experience. Anyway, a Fifty Shades fanatic made a YouTube video in which they show how wonderful Chris Hemsworth would be as Christian Grey and how hot Felicity would be as Ana, and after watching this (evidently brainwashing) clip, I, too, am now a believer.
And here's why you should be, too.
Do you want to watch the movie and think of Hermione from Harry Potter when Emma Watson first comes on the screen and bites her lip? Do you want to think of a CW show aimed at teens when Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale shows up? Do you want to think of Rory Gilmore and her fast-talking ways if she plays Ana? Do you want to think of little people and axes and dragons when Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke kisses Christian for the first time?
No, you want to be totally immersed in the film and the characters, and the only way that's possible is if they cast a relative unknown in the role of Ana.
Felicity would bring experience without baggage to the part and that's reason enough to select her right there. Who else could do such a thing? She's perfect.
Take a look:
What do you think -- would Felicity make a good Ana?
