Surprise! A Shades of Grey post.

Seriously. Obsessed.  I know, I know. Blah blah blah, the grammar is awful. Blah blah blah, its like mommy porn. Blah blah blah. Don't judge me. I rarely get into the craze of books, so this is a first for me. But I love the Christian Grey - the complexity of how eff'ed he is and the vulnerability of the character has gotten me to read (and almost finish) the second book in less than three days. 

So who do I want to play Christian? 

Duh. Matt Bomer. 

Seriously. Um, hello Neil Caffery. Or should I say for all you Guiding Light fans out there Ben Reade!! Does anyone else remember when Ben kidnapped Shayne and Marina!? I was a little obsessed during the early 2000s with Guiding Light. I TAPED it everyday.

Annnnyways. On to Ana Steele. 
Then after thinking about it for a while, I wanted an actress that wasn't well known really for Ana. I finally settled on Elizabeth Olsen. Mary-Kate and Ashley's lil' sis!
She was in like, three of the MK and A movies from back in the day.  (I can still sing all the words to the Sleepover video they had.)

Shut up. 
I know (most) of you don't care. 


  1. I haven't read them, but my sister is like OBSESSED and can't stop talking about them.

  2. I love the idea of Elizabeth Olsen for Ana - I've never thought of that! And I agree - Matt Bomer is PERFECT for the role! =)

  3. I'm on book one, about 80% done (according to my Kindle - I'm at the part where they're in Georgia. Amazing picks for Christian and Ana! Wonder how they'd do a film adaptation? Rated XXX? ;)

  4. I can't believe how much she looks like MK and Ashley! Only slightly less quirky and crazy ;) I haven't read the 50 Shades books, and probably won't, but not because I judge. Just because I don't buy books (we move a lot and books suck to move). I have a feeling they won't be available at the library for quite some time. Haha.

  5. okay...so I am not a big reader but I am OBSESSED with this trilogy. I don't want to put it down, but at the same time I don't want it to end. I can definitely seeing both those selections play the role of Christian and Ana.

  6. I just started book 2 today!! I don't get all of the judgement surrounding them. I mean, I do. But like...don't read them, then? I don't know who those two guys are, but they look sexual and that's all I really care about. (Hmm maybe Patrick could play Christian...?) Elizabeth Olsen is a great choice for Ana, though. There are rumors of Rooney Mara or K. Stew and I just can't see either of them in that role. Especially K. Stew. Hate.

  7. love the books! just as obsessed!
