As big fans of the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon, we have closely been following the online polling and politicking buzz about which stars we all want to see as our favorite lead characters, Anastasia and Christian.

Nicely done, we are almost convinced. According to a recent interview, author EL James admits that casting is likely to still be weeks or even months away, but in the meantime, check this out… we can’t wait for the real thing!
