FIFTY SHADES OF PLEASE-GOD-LET-IT-BE-TRUE


TWO GENERATIONS OF EYE CANDY: A CONVERSATION 
 "You know, Ryan, I'm hearing that you're going to be cast as Christian Grey."
"That may or may not be true, George." 
"Which is funny, because I was told I might have a shot." 
"That may or may not have been true 15 years ago, George." 
"That's pretty harsh. You're going to be old someday too you know." 
"I know. But in the meantime, I'm not."
"Cocky little shit."
"What did you say, old man?"

 "Nothing, nothing."

If you don't see any new posts here for a few days, don't be alarmed. All that will mean is that I have a had a complete full-body heart attack on account of the juicy rumour that is now all but confirmed: To wit, that Ryan Gosling will play Christian Grey in the movie version of Fifty Shades of Grey. 
(Uh-oh. Getting light-headed. Weird palpitations. Can't feel my left arm . . . )
Anyway, this rumour is getting lots of buzz. Author E.L. James' husband apparently told Now Magazine that, "last I heard," Ryry was the guy. And one would think he would know. 

Some speculate that this is all just a publicity ploy to drum up interest in the movie . . . CUZ THERE WASN'T ENOUGH of that already. But if that's the case, it's the stupidest publicity ploy ever. "Hey, we're casting the perfect guy, the guy you ALL want to see in the role of Christian Grey! Haha! Just kidding. We're going with Macaulay Culkin."

Editor's note:
I could be churlish and mention here that the book is in fact a piece of crap. But would anybody care? Nooooooooo. So I won't.
