Back before the Twilight films were made, the author made fan-casts on her website. Charlie Hunnam, the actor chosen to portray Christian Grey in the adaptation of Twilight-fanfiction turned bestseller 50 Shades of Grey by E.L James, was her choice for Carlisle Cullen. He turned it down due to not accepting any scripts involving vampires. Sort of funny that he’s now playing a reincarnation of Edward Cullen…but with a BDSM fetish instead of a thirst for blood.
Thanks to our very own reporter Amy Taylor (@OhMyCarlisle) for the tip on this! He’s certainly been in the business for a while. What do you think of the prospect of a 50 Shades movie, and what do you think of Charlie as Christian? We also got our Anastasia today – she’ll be portrayed by Dakota Johnson (The Social Network).
