Best Three Reasons why Charlie Hunnam is a great pick for Christian Grey

imagesCAVE2DXGOk. First off let me just get this out – YYYYYAAAAAAHHHHH! YAH!   Yes, I’m married (and I love my husband) but I have a huge crush on Charlie Hunnam.  Ever since watching Sons of Anarchy, it has just grown.  When I heard the news that he was cast as Christian Grey, I couldn’t stop jumping up and down (not literally – just figuratively) since I was at the office and that would have been a little awkward to explain to my boss.  She doesn’t watch TV or read books like Fifty Shades of Grey – actually she did mention once that she thought they were ‘trash’ books – it was those really weird moments because all I wanted to do was laugh but she was so serious…laughing would not have gone over well in that moment.

1. He is absolutely gorgeous!

2. He has the ability (and the acting experience) in being serious and stern (Jax Teller – Sons of Anarchy!)

3.  He will look amazing in a suit

Ok.  The first thing is probably the most important.  He is gorgeous with the blond hair and blue eyes, tall, muscular.  Jeez, I sound like I’m writing a romance novel.  This man needs to carry the movie where he will be the main focus.  He needs to look good in and out of cloths and let me say Charlie can do that without a problem.   Plus in the parts of the novel where Christian smiles, I can easily picture Charlie’s gorgeous smile.  For those of you who have never seen him in Sons of Anarchy, I would suggest you check him out before you critique.

Playing Jax Teller, President of SAMCRO, an Outlaw Motorcycle Club, he has run in to many a serious situation.  He definitely can be stern and Charlie acts his character brilliantly – that is why I picture him as Christian.  He can do serious.  He can do stern and he can do angry,  Again I point to the Sons of Anarchy.

Again, it comes back to him in a suit.  He can definitely wear a suit.

I just can’t wait for this movie (August 2014)!


Best 3 TV Shows

With this blog, I promised the best three of everything out there in the world. However my last few posts have been all about TV.  That could be cause  lately, even though I try and avoid it, I have been watching a lot of television and Netflix.  It’s scary because there are three tv shows (and there are some honorable mentions in this post) that I truly enjoy and look forward to seeing everyweek.

1.  The Vampire Diaries

2.  Sons of Anarchy

3. The Walking Dead

There are some honorable mentions: The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, The Amazing Race, The Voice,  and NCIS: LA.

Let’s talk about #1 best pick – The Vampire Diaries.  There is so much to say about this show.  It’s great – that is the first thing.  It’s filled with amazing characters (and great actors such as Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Joseph Morgan and the rest of the cast).  The episodes are great.  This show has a great way of not leaving you guessing which just annoys me in shows that seem to drag you along.

For those that are going to hate me for saying this – I’m still rooting for Elena and Stefan.  They belong together.  I’ve loved them together since Day 1.    Damon is hot and fun but not right for Elena.  I’m also loving the Caroline/Klaus storyline.  I’ll say that again – I’M LOVING THE CAROLINE AND KLAUS relationship – I hope this is explored – maybe Caroline can love him like he needs to be loved – that is my hope.  Seriously I’m so a fan of Caroline and Klaus – they need to be together just once and I think then I will  be happy.   Julie Plec (show’s executive producer) please take notice of all the fans rooting for Caroline and Klaus.  There is so much more to say but I will leave it there for now.

 As for my second best, I love Sons of Anarchy.  What a great and original show.  Its nice to see a show that isn’t focused on lawyers, doctors or cops.  It has superb acting from Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, Maggie Siff, Ron Perlman and the rest of the cast.  The episodes are full of everything from romance, to violence to drama to comedy.  It hooked me in from its very first episode.  I was so glad to hear that it is getting another season and another.  Yeah SAMCRO!!!
As for my last pick, The Walking Dead.  Like millions of other people out there – it’s an addictive show.  You just can’t stop watching to see what happens next.  It’s simply great, entertaining and that is just great for me.

If you are reading this and have never seen the shows I mention, I encourage you to check them out.
