Fifty Shades of Grey Casting: Felicity Jones As Anastasia?
Another county heard from!
Fifty Shades of Grey fans have more power than they know. A fan made a YouTube video casting Chris Hemsworth as Christian and British actress Felicity Jones as Anastasia.
After seeing the video, Metro News asked Felicity if she'd be interested in the role. "It all depends on the filmmaker and script, just like any other job,” she answered. “Anyway, I’ve heard there’s lots of campaigns by fans pushing other brunette actresses but I guess I should thank this person who went to all that trouble."
She doesn't sound that enthusiastic about it, but maybe she just figures she has no shot at it over some of the "favorites" like Lucy Hale or Alexis Bledel. Physically, 29-year-old Felicity could easily fit the part. She's still a relative unknown, at least when compared to Hemsworth, but you may have seen her in Like Crazy opposite Anton Yelchin, or in Chalet Girl opposite Ed Westwick.
What do you think? Would you rather have a lesser-known actress in the role of Ana, or would you prefer a well-known "star"? And when the heck are we going to hear any "official" casting from this movie?
