[The Guardian] — Someone in Hollywood has a keen sense of irony. The celebrity blogs are buzzing with the big news that the long-awaited film version of Fifty Shades of Grey will star Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey. Ever since Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) made the announcement that he had changed his mind about accepting the role of Grey, there has been a kind of frenzied reporting on who would be the lucky guy to play the new heartthrob of women everywhere.
British viewers will know Dornan from his brilliantly creepy portrayal of a sadistic serial killer of women who delights in sexually torturing his victims in the BBC hit series The Fall. Now he is about to play Christian Grey, who … well … delights in sexually torturing women. In a perverse way, the timing is off. Fifty Shades, the movie, should have come out first, because The Fall would serve as the perfect sequel. Let us imagine that Fifty Shades came out first, and then The Fall followed a few years later subtitled something like The Fall: Fifty Shades Gets Even Shadier.
In Fifty Shades the book, 28-year-old Christian Grey is a wealthy sexual sociopath who targets and cajoles an emotionally and sexually unsophisticated 21-year-old, Anastasia (who often sounds so naive and immature that she could easily pass for an adolescent), into agreeing to sadistic sex that leaves her sometimes bleeding and too bruised to move.
