I've died and gone to heaven, they cast Charlie Hunnam as Christian!!!

Dakota Johnson as Anastasia, I don't know her but I'm willing to have an open mind.

**ETA - Started a new thread because it would not let me reply to the old one being that it was over 180 days old***

I can't see him as anyone other than Nathan in Queer as Folk.

I still have no idea how they possibly plan to put this on the big screen without losing 95% of the books.

Have you watched him in SOA? He's so different than Nathan, of course he was so young during Queer as Folk. He did very explicit sex scenes then so obviously he's not shy about it. I watched him in SOA before I watched QAS so to me he is Jax, but he was also so different in 3,2,1 Frankie so he has a good range.

I'm sure they'll have to cut a bunch if the book out but it will be NC-17 so that helps. I'm thinking something along the lines of 9 1/2 Weeks.

I love Charlie. Kind of disappointed in the casting though. I pictured someone "darker" like Henry Cavill or Ian Somerhalder. Unlike most critics of this casting choice, I actually think Dakota is a good choice for the role of Ana.

Couple of my favorite Charlie You Tube videos! I am such a fan girl of this guy. :)

This was a recent interview on Conan -

This was a shoot for Men's Fitness -

Some nice visuals of Jax and Tara from SOA, he's playing a biker so he's so often looking scruffy -

I'd never heard of Charlie until a few weeks ago when I saw him in The Ledge with Liv Tyler, Patrick Wilson, and Terrence Howard. That was a pretty good movie.

At first I didn't see it, but I am starting to come around to Charlie.
