Apparently, more than 60,000 fans of the erotic romance novel weren't imagining actors Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson as their B&D-loving Christian Grey and schoolgirl Anastasia Steele in the upcoming adaptation of the book, and they made it known in an online petition. "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," a petition on Change.org read. Neither Bomer nor Bledel ever made mention that they were considering the roles.
