Matt Bomer Responds To 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Casting Petition
Not everyone was thrilled by the decision to cast Charlie Hunnam as "Christian Grey" in the film adaptation of Fifty Shade Of Grey.
In fact, the casting news was so controversial (we're laughing as we type this because: Russia. Syria.), that more than 40,000 people have lent their signatures to a Change.org petition calling for the role to be recast with the lickable Matt Bomer.
The petition reads, in part: “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…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.”
(Many caps lock keys were injured in the creation of this petition.)
So what does Matt Bomer think about this call to action?
Bomer told reporters, “I’m so grateful for the fans and touched. I’m looking forward to seeing the movie with Charlie and Dakota.”
No surprise, Bomer keeps it classy.
However, if he wants to make things unclassy, might we suggest a nude oil wrestling match with Mr. Hunnam. Winner takes the role??
Honestly, everybody wins.
