Matt Bomer responds to ‘Fifty Shades’ casting petitions

When casting news broke for Fifty Shades of Grey, fans were in an uproar. Heartbroken and confused over the choices of Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson, die-hard fans of Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel took to the internet to start a petition requesting the change of casting. Monday morning E.L. James took to Twitter to announce which lucky actor and actress had snagged the starring roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment in the casting call.

The petition states the following:

 “Matt Bomer is the PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF CHRISTIAN GREY AND ALEXIS BLEDEL IS THE PERFECT ACTRESS TO REPRESENT ANASTASIA STEELE and if THEY ARE NOT, NOBODY WILL BE…So please PLEASE, all of the GREYsessed and Bomerettes in the world NEED those actors. They always will be for us the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. WE CAN DO ANYTHING GUYS, ANYTHING.”

EW and ET Online were able to get a quote from Matt Bomer on the casting and the petition.

Bomer simply had this to say:  “I’m so grateful for the fans and touched. I’m looking forward to seeing the movie with Charlie and Dakota.”

Fans can catch Matt Bomer in the fifth season of his hit USA show White Collar premiering October 17. Check out this sneak peek of the upcoming season:
