I watched the unofficial trailers made by Jamie dornan Versus Matt Bomer
I loved the books and know that seldom do the actors measure up to the character in our imaginations. I had never heard of Jamie Dornan until it was announced that he won the role of Christian Grey. I then watched the unofficial trailers made by Matt Bomer, Ian Somerhalder and Jamie Dornan. That convinced me that Mr. Dornan fits the role best. There will have to be physical changes made such as hair and eye color but that is easy for Hollywood makeup artists. Presence and believability are not. I remember the hoopla over the casting of Rob Pattinson as Edward Cullen. Armchair casting directors eviscerated the guy before the first movie came out saying he was ugly and wrong for the part. Well, five movies later, he IS Edward Cullen to millions of fans all over the world. Ithink the same thing will happen in Shades. I was less enthusiastic about the choice for Ana as I thought thhe choice of Alexis Blebel was physically perfect with her gorgeous hair and stunning blue eyes. But I didn’t see the readings for the part or the chemistry between the two actors. Since the director and producers want a huge success at the box office, they will pick the right actors for the res, particularly since this is a franchise.
