Did you really think they could keep it a secret all weekend long?
It's here! The day we've all been waiting for: E.L. James just announced the casting of Christian and Ana. And the lucky actors about to skyrocket to fame are ...
Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson!
Last week, rumors swirled that a big announcement would be made after Labor Day, but James stunned us all by sharing the news today via Twitter. We knew something big was coming when she began by tweeting, "Good moaning all. Hold on to your hats..." and then, not too much later, finished the thought by adding, "I am delighted to let you know that the lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the film adaptaion of Fifty Shades of Grey."
But what about Christian? Don't worry, roughly an hour later, she decided to tease us—in true Christian Grey style—by tweeting, "So... Christian...", followed shortly by, "The gorgeous and talented Charlie Hunnam will be Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey."
What do you think? How excrutiating will the next 11 months be before the expected release date?
