MOVIES : Fans not happy with 'Fifty Shades' casting

"Fifty Shades of Grey" fans are hot -- and
not for the reason you might think.
No sooner were the stars of the
forthcoming film adaptation of the wildly
successful erotic novel announced than the
Internet roared its disapproval. No, no, no
some fans cried to the casting of Charlie
Hunnam and Dakota Johnson as Christian
Grey and Anastasia Steele respectively.
The front-runners for the gig appear to be
"White Collar" star Matt Bomer and Alexis
Bledel, who is best known from the hit TV
show "Gilmore Girls." There is even a petition demanding that the roles
be recast and given to that pair.
As we learned with the drama that became
"Batfleck" (yes, that's henceforth the term
for the madness that went down when it was
announced that Ben Affleck would be
playing Batman) people take very seriously
these casting decisions -- especially when
it's a pair of characters they have been
fantasizing about.
Therefore it seems like just about everyone
has "Fifty Shades" opinion. And Twitter lit
up with them, from the serious to the semi-
But not everyone was bummed about it.
Johnson's mom, actress Melanie Griffith,
appears to be thrilled. She tweeted "My
beautiful child Dakota has been chosen to
play Anna [sic] Steele in 50 Shades!!! Look
out world! Here she comes!!! #proud mama."
