At the same time, the impassioned buzz has gone on for so long now that it's likely fans are erring on totally fed up. Many are just plain BURNED OUT from waiting for the anticipated news to come.

But it doesn't have to be that way! We know exactly how you can while away the hours, days, weeks -- hopefully NOT months!! -- until the eventual, official announcement. Here, 10 things you can do while waiting for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie to be cast! Check 'em out ... 

  • Put '50 Shades' fan trailers on a 120-minute loop

    So it'll be sorta like a full-length, feature film, right?

    Nothing ELSE -- like casting of the film! -- is happening, so why not? Ugh!

  • Get annoyed at yet another false alarm casting rumor ...

    ...  and yell to no one in particular! One minute, Ian Somerhalder's in, then the next, he's out. That said, no one would fault you for spending at least a little time freaking out!

  • 'Cheat' on '50 Shades' with a different erotic series

    Consider the Beautiful Bastard series from Christina Lauren, which I can't recommend enough -- and keeps aiming to please!

  • Eat a lot of ice cream in frustration and disappointment

    Try a scoop of red velvet cake to pay tribute to the Red Room of Pain or a cup of mango tango to honor Charlie Tango.

  • Hold a company pool based on Christian & Ana casting guesses

    That way, you'll be distracted by organizing all the bets and possibly making big bucks on the outcome!

  • Watch 'Secretary'

    After all, before there was Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, there was Lee Holloway and E. Edward Grey.

  • Tweet at E.L. James

    You wouldn't be the first to whine to the series' author. Just be prepared for a snarky at best, snappy at worst response!

  • Watch bad reality TV

    It's not like there's a Fifty Shades of Grey movie to watch, so you might as well, right?

  • Get some fresh air and fuhgettaboutit!

    You know what they say ... a watched pot never boils, right?
