'50 Shades of Grey' Movie Just Found Its Leading Lady! (We Hope So, Anyway) (VIDEO)

felicity jonesAnother 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?

OMG STAHP with the naming of the 50 shades actress articles. These are SUPER BORING!

Erin Roy

She might do okay, but no to him. He doesn't have that dark sexyness to him.

I don't mind Lucy Hale as Ana actually, she has the perfect "Ana"face in my mind, though overall she does seem to young as Ana was often described as a little more curvy then Lucy Hale, who has more of a "teen/junior" body.

If they cast the girl from Gilmore Girls, I think I will pass on the movie.

She was pretty cute and could pass for what I visioned although I think someone like Megan Fox would be better. She could be made to look like plain Jane and ten get all sexed up. And I think Ian Somerhalden should be Grey. He has amazing eyes and as we have seen on VD he can go from sweet to sexy and demanding quite easily. Yum yum YUM!

She looks good, just has to have BLUE eyes. but not him, does not have the right hair colour and dark, kinky sexy look

This is the most perfect combination of Christian and Anastasia that I've ever seen! I really hope these two are picked. Of course I've been saying Chris Hemsworth since the beginning... ;)

I'm a fan of the books, and I'm really considering not to watch the movie, because I feel that they will probably ruin the books for me. If you think about it it will be a very difficult script to make, and I'm sure I will be dissapointed and the other times that I read the books again I will "see" the movie, and not the movie that I imagined the first place..
