Here's another of those "50 Shades" parodies. What's funny is the reaction of the actors more than anything.

Love it, I wish it was longer!! I would like to request they read some of the steamier scenes, lol

So far Ellen's is still my favorite, I think most have seen it but just in case someone is lurking that hasn't -

I hadn't read that particular article but I was aware of Gabriel's Inferno, aka The University of Edward Mason when it was fan fiction. I wonder if they will get wind of The Forbidden Room and A House of Cards next, also once fanfic and now published. Features male/male/female though so maybe the mainstream isn't quite ready to go that far. I enjoyed them, Gabriel's Inferno not as much.

Since it was requested to combine replies I'll add this here -

Recent headlines, Fifty Shades of Grey has outsold Harry Potter on Amazon UK!

'Fifty Shades of Grey' outsells 'Harry Potter,' E.L. James becomes highest selling writer on Amazon UK
Gina DiFalco
8/1/2012


If there was any question as to the massive success of Fifty Shades of Grey this next statistic will even quiet the skeptics.

E.L. James is now Amazon U.K.’s highest selling writer to date, as she has outsold J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows held the previous record for the most sold books on Amazon, up until Wednesday.

According to Reuters, the Fifty Shades books have outsold them two to one.

EU Director of Kindle, Gordon Willoughby, has said in a statement "If J.K. Rowling was the literary phenomenon of the last decade then E.L. James looks certain to take that mantle in the current decade.”

Willoughby continued, "In just four months, E.L. James has become Amazon.co.uk's biggest-selling author of all time which is truly remarkable when you consider that we've been selling books for almost 14 years.”

Meanwhile, Contact Music reports there is still ramped speculation about who will play the trilogy’s main characters Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.

Holy Moses!! Or as Ana would say, Holy Cow!! Very Happy

Linda

Have it downloaded, but haven't started it. I have read many reviews and I see that it is a mostly PG rating, not as erotic as 50.
kmredd...Have you read the Christian POV fanfic in this thread? It is very, very good.

Wow, that's the first I've seen Matt beat out Ian in a Christian poll! Yeah, he's gay but I would have no problem with that as long as he does a good job acting and I think Matt Bomer could nail it.

Um...did someone seriously suggest Justin Timberlake? Shocked

And I could give a toss about his orientation. So what. Still have a soft spot for unknown Oliver *something* Cohen ... I really want newbies for Christian and Ana.

p.s. Whoever shared the Christian POV fanfic, thanks! Really has the voice nailed.

Edited for grammar
