'50 Shades of Grey': Fans DEMAND Latina Alexis Bledel play Anastasia Steele
The leads set to play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey were recently revealed, but many fans just were not thrilled with the choices. Actually not just "not thrilled," irate fans actually started a petition to change actors Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam, who were cast as Anastasia and Christian, respectively. They say Johnson and Hunnam were not the big names they expected to carry the film based on their favorite BDSM best-selling novel. Now they're actually demanding that Alexis Bledel and Matt Bomer to play the main characters.
Movie producers, you hear that? Give them what they want!

According to UPI.com, the petition run by Change.org is titled "We want Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele on 50 Shades." The description says:
Matt Bomer is the PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF CHRISTIAN GREY AND ALEXIS BLEDEL IS THE PERFECT ACTRESS TO REPRESENT ANASTASIA STEELE and if THEY ARE NOT, NOBODY WILL BE And I read the whole trilogy and I can assure that Matt is the perfect actor for this movie and Alexis too. So please PLEASE, all of the GREYsessed and Bomerettes in the world NEED those actors. They always will be for us the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. WE CAN DO ANYTHING GUYS, ANYTHING.
The petition has even racked up over 40,000 signatures! Although the fans are unhappy with the selections, the producer of the film, Dana Brunetti, made sure to re-tweet comments made by those who have been supportive. Brunetti spoke to the unsatisfied fans and told them about how the actors were selected. He wrote: "There is a lot that goes into casting that isn't just looks. Talent, availability, their desire to do it, chemistry with other actor, etc."
Yeah, Brunetti, I don't think the fans care much for that except for the fact that you didn't cast Alexis Bledel or Matt Bomer as the film's leads. You don't realize that the 50 Shades fans are a different breed from the Twilight and Harry Potter fanatics. We even thought Bledel would be a greak pick! So Brunetti, if you really care about the fans and their needs, please listen to their petition and make their erotic dreams come true.
