Continuing with the recent post on my blog, I want to explore who I believe would be the best 3 actresses to play the character of Anastasia Steele.  I should say that I have been getting a lot of views on the Fifty Shades of Grey topics so this is a good indication that I am not the only one out there that is really excited for this movie to come out.

I have though long and hard about the choices that I have included.  There is something about all these actresses that embody the character and that I think could do a really good job.  I just hope that these actresses are open (i.e. nudity) because this is a role that cannot be PG – that would just not work and I don’t think people will tune in.  This is also a role that can make a career or break it.

So, here are my Best 3…Actresses to Play Anastasia Steele (from Fifty Shades of Grey):

1.  Alexis Bledel

2.  Allison Williams

3. Amanda Seyfried

My first choice is Alexis Bledel because she has the look, the eyes and that ability to bring out the innocence of the character.  I think that she is a good enough actress that she would be able to deliver a great performance and really make the character come alive.  She would be amazing.  Even though she is thirty  – I think that she could easily portray a 21 year old  (my only worry is whether she would agree to any nudity – if it was a requirement – that is also a worry with all the actresses that I picked – although I think that if they had done the research on the character, they would agree).

My second choice might be different for some.  Allison Williams is the daughter of NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams.  She currently is on HBO’s Girls.  I don’t know much about her yet she fits the look that I see for Anastasia.  She is relatively new at acting and this would be a career making role.  I just don’t know if she would take it specifically because of who her father is (hopefully that wouldn’t be an issue…but I don’t know her and I don’t know her family).  I like the idea of a new actress taking the role.

As for my last choice, I think Amanda Seyfried (with her hair dyed brown) could really pull off this character.  She is a great actress and I know if she was cast, she would do an amazing job.

All I can say is, I feel really bad for the people casting the movie…this is going to be such as hard choice.

Like many millions of people, I was lucky enough to see The Avengers this week.  It was a great movie.  I wasn’t sure whether I was going to like it but the movie, the acting and all the effects were really enjoyable and reminded me of why movies are such great entertainment.  The movie then got me thinking about all the superhero characters that have been invented and I found myself also imagining what superhero and powers I would like to have.  I can’t wait until The Avengers 2 – so excited – also looking forward to Iron Man 3, Thor 2 and Captain American 2!!!

This was truly hard because what wouldn’t I want to have! I would love to fly, have super strength, command the weather (which would mean it was always sunny and nothing would be able to grow from the lack of rain because I simply don’t like rain) or leap from tall buildings.  All of those abilities and powers sound awesome.  It just makes me smile to think of myself as a superhero.  Therefore, I wanted to devote a post to the superheroes that I believe are the best (I know there is going to be some disagreement with this post and that is ok with me – bring it on!  – see I sound like a superhero now!).

So here are the Best 3…Superheroes:

1.  THOR

2.  BATMAN

3. ROGUE (from the X-Men)

Honorable mentions: Superman, Iron Man, The Invisible Woman, The Thing, Beast (from X-Men), Emma Frost and Storm.

My first choice was easy – he is a god, has amazing strength, knows how to use a hammer and can summon and control the elements (God of Thunder).  He helps defend earth and all humans and is just plain awesome.  I don’t think there is much else to say about him. 

For my second choice, I chose a superhero that doesn’t really have any  powers but is just one-badass superhero.  He is strong, smart, funny, and takes care of the residents of Gotham City.  He lives his one life as Bruce Wayne but goes out at night when he is needed and just takes care of all the bad guys.  He is complex and just a great superhero.

My last choice may surprise some people but I really like Rogue.  She is gifted with some great powers but also some that haunt her.  Absorption of memories, skills, and powers through skin to skin contact, occasional super strength and flight.  She is the superhero I would most like to be – she has powers that are very different then other superheroes.  The only down side is her inability to touch anyone – direct skin to skin.

Let me know what superheroes you love!
