I think that Jamie Dornan is the perfect choice to play Christian Grey in FIFTY SHADES OF GREY. Smartest casting decision in a long time.— Bret Easton Ellis (@BretEastonEllis) October 24, 2013
I'm a monstrous @JamieDornan1 fan. Wasn't allowed to be attracted to him on The Fall bc he played a sexmurderer. 50 Shades is my big chance!— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) October 24, 2013
Wait, Christian Grey isn't a murderer right?— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) October 24, 2013
(Wistfully) I had my own Christian Grey once. But he used a towel for a bed sheet and had a fat friend named Jeff.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) October 24, 2013
So Jamie Dornan takes control of the red room in #50shades. Here's to the confident mrs Dornan— Billy Bush (@billybush) October 24, 2013
They should stop trying to find the right face for 50 Shades & just animate the film... & surely theres room for a few musical numbers?— Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) October 24, 2013
