IT’S HERE!!!! Casting day has finally happened ! Charlie Huunam has been cast as the coveted role of Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as the lovely Ana.
I will post another blog soon to talk further details about all things casting. For right now I think it’s that time again for my PCA~ Post Casting Agreement. It’s finally time to remember that a lot of you sign, sealed, and delivered this agreement!
But in all seriousness, I ask that we all keep in mind that Team Fifty is working hard to deliver a movie that will kick ass better than the Red Room can. Please be conscience of your words for they have weight.
This is a beloved book by millions. Remember that joy you had when reading it for the first time? How you blushed at certain “oh my” parts? Well keep that in mind. And although your Christian wasn’t chosen, it will still be a beautifully made movie – Sham Wow approved.
Tweeting and Facebooking hate doesn’t do anything but hurt. E L James, Dana Brunetti, Michael DeLuca and the rest of Team Fifty are people. They are someone’s husband, wife, sister, father, and friend. They have feelings. You don’t have to love the casting choices but by all means be a person with decency. Let’s rally alongside with them and support this epic movie in the works.
Love & Laters, Michele xo

BREAK-UPIn the event of an unforeseen breakup, due to the GREYsessed realizing her Rejected Christian is in fact not her Christian after all, she shall keep all intimate secrets to herself. Tweeting and Facebooking the details of their relationship is condoned.
**BREAK UP CLAUSE***
if GREYsessed finds out that RC (Rejected Christian) has cheated on her, or done something to embarrass, humiliate, or question the GREYsessed’s reputation, then she has the right to dump him like yesterday’s trash. This includes rumors of STD’s, erectile dysfunction, stuffed animal collection, skinny jean obsession, doesn’t wash his hands after going to the bathroom, overheard making a remark about “Flow” being in town, along with rolling of the eyes. If any of this occurs, then GREYsessed has permission to say “Laters, baby,” then tweet the shit out of it. With pictures.
**MY CHRISTIAN WAS PICKED CLAUSE**
In the event that the GREYsessed’s Christian was indeed cast for the movie, the agreement is obviously null and void. And she can go suck it. Boasting not acceptable. Being gracious and thanking the Fifty Shades casting gods for all your prayers being answered is.
By signing below, you agree to all the rules as laid out in this agreement, effective immediately following casting announcement. This guarantees that your GREYsessed card will not be taken away, as long as none of the above rules are broken. This agreement also means that the signing parties will do their best to uphold the Fifty Shades reputation, and not make us look like crazy bitches by performing one of the hard limites stated above.
