Bret Easton Ellis Has Some 50 Shades Casting Gossip

50 Shades of Grey's No. 1 Superfan weighs in: "Talked to E.L. James at a party over the summer: her first choice for Christian was Rob Pattinson and Matt Bomer was never in the running." Then: "E.L. James and I were at Rob Pattinson's house when she admitted Rob was first choice for Christian. Ian Somerhalder never in the running." For his part, Ellis suggested "James Deen, of course," and both writers were "very wasted." Would kind of rather watch that movie.
