Two of the most sought-after roles in Hollywood have been filled.
Dakota Johnson will star as Anastasia Steele and Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey in the highly anticipated film adaptation of the erotically charged novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
Author E.L. James announced the news Monday in a number of bombshell tweets. She started with Johnson, 23, the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. Distributor Focus Features confirmed it shortly thereafter.
"I am delighted to let you know that the lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey," the first tweet said, ending months of breathless speculation.
But, Us Weekly reports, it turns out Humman, 33, wasn’t the first in line to play the mysterious billionaire — at least according to Bret Easton Ellis.
"Talked to E.L. James at a party over the summer: her first choice for Christian was Rob Pattinson," author and screenwriter Ellis claimed via Twitter on Monday.
Seth Meyers is a married man.
The Saturday Night Live star, 39, wed longtime gal pal, human rights lawyer Alexi Ashe, on Sunday in Martha’s Vineyard in an intimate ceremony, his rep told People.com.
Celeb guests included Andy Samberg, Ali Larter, Olivia Munn, Jason Sudeikis, Allison Williams, Kristen Wiig, Lorne Michaels, Amy Poehler, Fred Armisen, Will Forte, Taran Killam, Rashida Jones, Tony Shaloub, Nick Kroll and Bill Hader.
