After Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson were announced as the stars of the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey film adaptation, displeased fans created aChange.org petition to replace the actors with Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel. But while Bomer is flattered, don't expect to see him in a Red Room of Pain blasting Bach on the big screen.
"I'm so grateful for the fans and touched," Bomer told ET Online. "I'm looking forward to seeing the movie with Charlie and Dakota."
Bomer's statement likely won't make Fifty Shades fans too happy, since they seem to have their heart set on the White Collar star.
"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," reads the petition, which has amassed more than 65,000 signatures.
In a TVGuide.com poll, 48 percent of users thought Johnson and Hunnam were not right for the roles, while 23 percent thought they'd be great. What do you think of the castings?
