Oh, the ties that bind.
Production is ramping up on the highly anticipated movie version of the erotic literary saga Fifty Shades of Grey, and now eager fans can get a glimpse of the two actors who'll go toe-to-toe (or rather, bondage-to-bondage) as its sexy, hot-and-heavy leads: Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.
In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, the two stars get into character as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele – with the help of a poor, unassuming silk tie.

Dakota Johnson was reading at a table in Hollywood this week – but she wasn't doing a table read with rumored new Fifty Shades of Grey costar Jamie Dornan.
Nope, the actress seemed worry-free while reading the menu at Brick + Mortar in Santa Monica, Calif., on Thursday. Johnson, who arrived with a blond gal pal and grabbed a seat on the patio, was dressed down in a striped black-and-white T-shirt, had her hair casually clipped up in a messy bun and "didn't have a stitch of makeup on," according to an onlooker.

Is this the new shade of Grey?
Following the news that Charlie Hunnam, 33, backed out of playing Christian Grey in the highly anticipated film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey, Universal Pictures and Focus Features apparently have their eyes set primarily on British TV star Jamie Dornan, 31, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The report says that fellow British actor Christian Cooke, 26, and Alexander Skarsgard, 37, of True Blood fame, are also in the running for the coveted erotic role.

The Sons of Anarchy star was officially cast Monday – along with Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele – for the film adaptation of E L James's Fifty Shades of Grey.
Hunnam, 33, admits that after reading the book and meeting with the film's director, Sam Taylor-Johnson, he was intrigued but needed more to seal the deal.

Fans launched a Change.org petition begging producers to cast Matt Bomer as kinky-yet-sensitive billionaire Christian Grey and Alexis Bledel as Anastasia Steele.
