Selecting Christian Grey: It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it!

Hey there, Charlie Hunnam.
It's here! The day we've all been waiting for: E.L. James just announced the casting of Christian and Ana. What do you think, will these two do the title characters justice?

We think 2013 is the year of Justin Timberlake, and here's why. Did he drop an amazing album? Why yes he did. Join the five-timers club with a top-notch SNL hosting-slash-performing gig?

OK, I can admit it. When I first started casting Fifty Shades of Grey in my head, Ian Somerhalder was not even in my top 5.
