I know you’ve all been waiting with baited breath for Hollywood to make its Fifty Shades of Grey casting decisions. You probably hadn’t been able to eat or sleep until they announced that Charlie Hunnam will be playing the rich guy who spanks that college girl, right? Well now we know who will play the soon-to-be world’s most famous spankee, Anastaisa Steele. Are you ready? Can you handle it? It’s going to be Dakota Johnson. Boom.
Johnon, 23 year old daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, has had some decent screen time in the past: a few minutes in her step-dad Antonio Banderas‘ directorial flop Crazy in Alabama and another couple of minutes in The Social Network. But is she well-prepared to get all spanky? Only time and an intensive research project will tell.
I may not actually see the movie in its entirety, but I’m definitely going to see the stills.
