This is just plain freaky, the uber popular 50 Shades of Grey trilogy chronicles the sexual exploits and emotional baggage of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Basically, it’s three books of straight bondage overseen by business tycoon Christian Grey. Casting rumours have been swirling for months while moms wait with breath baited, dying to hear who will be fulfilling their wildest dreams on screen. The lastest casting report is purely shocking: 18-year-old Justin Bieber is believed to have been offered the role!
I see a few problems. The first, that Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder is so obviously the best choice for Christian. TO SEE THE TRAILER WITH IAN CLICK HERE. Mainly because, unlike Justin, it is legal for him to buy alcohol, rent cars, and, oh yeah—he’s the right age! Christian is supposed to be 27. Justin would need a lot of make up to pull off the age gap. Celeb Teen Laundry reported, “There is NO way that Justin could pull off the maturity and menace needed for this role.” Of course, the book contains flash backs to Christian’s teen years when he was first initiated into the world of BDSM. We have no problem with Justin playing young Christian Grey!
No word on any new Anastasia Steele casting, but how perfect would it be if Selena got it? She is the right age, right hair color, and has those plump lips to chew on (ha!). The gossip so far has also pointed out real-life-couple and on screen threesome participants Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, whose passion in Vampire Diaries proves they have no qualms about acting steamy on screen!
What would the Beliebers (and their moms!) say to Justin starring in this erotic film? Do you think the kids would be allowed to attend in order to see their favorite star? More importantly—could Justin handle a role like this? We’ve watched as his team tries to rebrand him as James Dean-ish-adult, a welcome evolution from hair-swishing-Canadian-pop-youth-sensation. Would CGI be able to cover up his Jesus tattoo in the naughty scenes?
