'50 Shades' Casting Doesn't Mean E.L. James Is Finished With Robert Pattinson

Flicks 35

robert pattinson With Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson now confirmed to step into the roles of Christian and Anastasia in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey flick, there's just one thing for E.L. James to do at this point ... sit back, relax, and hang out with Robert Pattinson! Wait, what?! Oh yes, apaprently, "E.L. and Rob have become really close," a source tells E! News of the author and the actor. "They have become very good friends." Awww.

Man oh man, what a large portion of the female population wouldn't give to be in Erika Leonard's shoes these days, huh?! I mean, consider her biggest problem: She reportedly always wanted Rob as Christian (well, duh, she only wrote the series as a lovelorn, drooly tribute to him!), and it didn't work out ... But no biggie, cuz the consolation prize is being BFFs with her muse!

What's more, she has Mr. Hunkypants Charlie "Hummanah-Hummanah!" Hunnam to portray her leading man. What a hardship! No, but seriously, according to the latest reports, E.L. is "very happy" with Charlie in the role. And um, hello. Why wouldn't she be?!

Say what you want about Charlie -- that he should've been/shouldn't have been cast as Christian or that he's hot/not hot enough, etc. -- but one thing's for sure: He's gorgeous and charismatic to boot! And with Rob by her side and Charlie now solidly in Christian's shoes, E.L. James really does seem to have the world on a string. We should only be so lucky to have her problems. Yeesh!

Do you think E.L. and Rob will collaborate down the road? How are you feeling about Charlie as Christian lately?

I'm glad Rob isn't moving on to a new franchise, he will already be known as Edward for the rest of his life. As for Charlie playing Christian, he's hot that's for sure and he can play Christians demeanor well because bossy, and closed off are all things we have seen him play already. I'm not sure he's the best person to fill the role but I will give it a shot with an open mind, instead of automatically judging him before even seeing him play it. Hopefully he pulls it off :)

ROB IS PERFECT FOR C.G.!! IF SHE KEEPS CHARLIE, I WILL NOT GO SEE IT!! ROB OR IAN. ROB IS MY FURST CHOICE. HE JUST LOOKS LIKE CHRISTIAN!! ;-)

Not looking forward to the movie now, might not even go see it, It just doesn't add up to the Christian and Ana that I imagined when reading the books!!!! Rob would have made a better choice although I was really rooting for Henry Cavil!!!

Rob could play the driver / body guard guy (I can't remember his name!)

I am a HUGE Rob Pattinson fan and a HUGE Charlie Hunnam fan and I can not wait to see the brilliant performance Charlie will bring to this Movie. I read 50 shades when it was Masters of my Universe and I'm aware that it was written for Rob but lets give Mr. Hunnam a chance he is a brilliant and stupidly underestimated actor he will be around for a while!

I DONT CARE ABOUT UR FRIENDSHIP WITH ROBERT BUT WHAT U DID JAMES IS PRETTY HORRIBLE :)

I think the choices are so off and so bad that I am not going to go see the movies at all. Almost all my friends feel the same way so that is a series we are not going to be watching....epic fail!

Sharissa Nelson

Dawn Bro
