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.

Since I am one those people that have unfortunately spent a great deal of her life in front of a tv…commercials have become something that I have come to enjoy and hate at the same time. There are certain commercials that stay in my mind and that is usually because they are funny and there are those that are just annoying and are played way too much (those are usually the companies that have a great deal of money that they can throw on advertising time).  Commercials have become so integrated into tv (and now movie – which I was surprised when commercials started playing there) that we have companies willing to spend millions on only 30 seconds of air time during the Super Bowl.  Yes, I understand they can reach more people but even after I see the ad, it doesn’t make me want to go out and buy a car…so I don’t understand their methodology but hey I am not the one being paid the ‘big bucks’ to create and focus group these ads to everyday, average folks.

Getting ready to write this post, I thought back through the years on all the commercials that I have seen and liked and wanted to share them with all of you.  I hope you enjoy.

So, here are the Best 3….Commercials of All Time:

1.  The Force – Volkswagen Commercial (this one is so funny)

2.  Terry Tate – Reebok

3. The Man Your Man Could Smell LikeOld Spice

I have to say The Force – Volkswagen commercial is one of those commercials that just makes me laugh everytime I see it.  It is so cute and so funny.

As for the other picks, the Terry Tate one is great.  I would love to have him visit my office.  He is hilarious and I know there are a few people you would like to see this happen too in your own offices…

The Old Spice ad was just clever and I did appreciate that (finally) a good looking man with hardly any clothing on was featured in an ad (all those beer commercials are just annoying).
