    Um, Garrett turned it down because he couldn't commit to more than one film and the producers wanted to sign someone that could potentially do all three. You can google that. At the time he turned it down that's what was widely reported. It had nothing to do with connecting with the character so you're wrong there. This cast is a big let down to the majority of people, especially the fans that are original and have been around since before this casting announcement. It seems to be that the people who actually like this casting either haven't read the books yet and don't know anything about what the characters look like, or they're just now reading them for the first time and picturing these 2 in the roles.

    Like so many others, I need a visual of characters in mind as I read a book. I chose Bomer & Bledel, then found all the fanmade trailers depicting them in the roles of Christian and Ana. Today if you add up the hits on all their "trailers", they are close to 17 million.

    Why were these two never even "in the running"? (per EL James at Rob Patt's party). Imagine if the casting story went like this: They invited them both to a screen test, and if they had chemistry, negotiated what would make them comfortable playing the roles (body doubles for the steamy scenes, etc...) and then ran with it? Fans would be rejoicing!

    And even if one or both declined the roles (as several others have done, but Bomer/Bledel have not...), the fans would have accepted that they were at least given a chance, before moving on and embracing the ones who were chosen.

    One of these days, the movie industry is going to embrace their passionate fans via social media, and avoid this negative backlash...

    I feel for Charlie & Dakota in all this, but no matter who was chosen, EL James threw them under the bus the day she turned her nose up at Bomer & Bledel, in the face of her fans.

    I am disappointed in the casting, but of course I will still see the movie. I agree with Krystal...well known celebs did not want to partake in this film. I'm surprised they didn't go with complete unknowns. Let's hope these 2 have serious chemistry...if they do, it can still be a great film!

    Get over yourselves people. The bitchin and the moanin isn't gonna help get you the guy or girl that you want. The world will still rotate and life will go on. Get over it already! You can't always get what you want people, if that were the case, I'd choose to be taller! But that isn't gonna happen and neither will Ian Somerhalder or Matt Bomer! Learn to embrace change and move on.

    the author and studio created this huge casting discussion, turned out no one wants to be a part of this. then they have to "settle" with the stars who available to take the role. this movie was set to fail since you guys spent over a year to do the casting. FAILED.

    Very disappointed in the casting of both Grey and Anastasia.... they should have gone with the fan favorites, Ian Somerhalder or Matt Bonner..... Ian had sais many times that he would play the role!!! I don't think it will get good reviews if they keep this cast.
