The Fifty Shades of Grey movie is still quite a way off, but that doesn't mean there are plenty of other people hoping to bring the steamy trilogy to life in other ways. In Stratford-upon-Avon, U.K. (where Shakespeare was born), British tourism company The Falstaff Experience is currently casting for an attraction called "An Evening With Mr. Grey."
Whoever wins the role of the billionaire Dom will be "expected to lead women around the town, entertain them, and ensure they find their way to the best places to eat and drink." Innnnteresting.
Hmm. At first glimpse, you might think, "What the hell does Fifty Shades have to do with a food and booze tour of Stratford-upon-Avon?" And I wouldn't blame you for thinking that. But it's actually not that crazy ...
After all, despite being known primarily for his love of sadomasochistic sex, billionaire Christian Grey does has a sophisticated palate in the series. He's a MAJOR wino and seems to have a fetish for watching Anastasia eat! That said, I'm sure fans could see their fave leading man heading up a Fifty Shades-themed dining and drinking tour. They just shouldn't be surprised if "Christian" tells them what they must drink and must eat ... "That Beajoulis Nouveau is too old for you, my dear. Drink this Vioginer instead. Now!"
Surely, whoever portrays Christian on the tour is going to have a blast playing around with the character's control freaky ways, but ultimately, ladies on the tour know what they're signing up for. How much you wanna bet U.S. Fifty fans start researching a trip across the pond ASAP?! In fact, I'd venture to guess you're typing in "flights to London" right now ...
