So perfect timing. I've wanted to make this post for a while, I was going to make it about Sons of Anarchy and make it a Current Obsession... But with this months theme, I worked it out with one of the main reasons I watch the show. The timing is perfect because Charlie Hunnam was also just announced to play Christian Grey in the movie adaption of 50 Shades of Grey. And the new season of SOA starts on September 10th, days away!
My friends and I were so upset about the 50 Shades of Grey news. I don't know if you guys read the book, but it is SO STUPID! Just plain awful. It is supposed to be all hot and sexy, but it is just weird and lame. There is no doubt that Hunnam is hot enough to play this crazy hot characer, I mean if anyone can pull it off, it's him. BUT, he is TOO good for this! If you have seen my current obsession, Sons of Anarchy, you would know that the man can act his ass off. I also thought he was super cute in the short-lived Judd Apatow comedy, Undeclared. I just don't understand how or why he agreed to it. Hopefully the script for the movie is miraculously better. Or they are paying him shit tons of money, I don't know. Even if the script is better, the movie is still going to be freaking weird. I can't even think about it.
Anywhos, let's talk about how awesome Sons of Anarchy is! I have wanted to watch it FOREVER! I got Netflix just so I could finally start. It has been awesome! Everyone in it is fantastic including Katey Sagal and Ron Perlman. Aside from Hunnam's character Jax Teller, my favorites are Opie(Ryan Hurst), Juice(Theo Rossi) and Chibs(Tommy Flanagan). It is a fantastic ensemble, and the story is so gripping. It is very dramatic, but interesting and you can tell that they are being very authentic. I was supposed to be all caught up by the premiere, but I'm still a season behind! I must catch-up soon! Oh and then Hunnam as Lloyd in Undeclared. Can we talk about how I started watching SOA and Parks and Rec at the same time and Amy Poehler plays Hillary an RA who hits on Lloyd. Too funny!
You see, I don't know how you don't fall in love with this man. Because one, he is hot as hell! Two, he is mad talented, the guy can act! And three he has an adorable personality, look how funny and sweet he is!
Have you fallen in love with Charlie Hunnam yet?
Any SOA/Undeclared fans out there? Do you think he's right for 50 Shades of Grey ?
