Fifty Shades of Grey Casting: Will Emma Watson and Jonah Hill …
Sorry, Ian Somerhalder, Lucy Hale and company! We have an official(ly fake) Anastasia and Christian for the Fifty Shades of Grey films.
The announcement was made during the 2013 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, April 14.
Harry Potter alum Emma Watson was given the Trailblazer Award, and Jonah Hill sent over a video message of support, adding a nice little reference to all the times Emma has said she will NOT be in Fifty Shades, despite the rumors.
Jonah: "Emma Watson is such a beautiful, lovely, talented, hard-working person. I'm very appreciative to be in her life. That's why I want to take this opportunity to announce officially that we will be starring in the screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. Emma, it's going to be very difficult to go back to being casual, after we start to go so deep into these characters and start exploring each other in such a detailed way. Whew. It's gonna get rough out there. But I need you to know one thing: My safety word is tangerine."
Ha! Congrats to Emma on her award ... and please, heaven, let Jonah be joking on that casting notice.
