Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt "Fifty Shades" prank goes viral.

Earlier this week, a shocking rumor hit the web that "Les Miserables" star Eddie Redmayne and English actress Sheridan Smith were "officially cast" as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the highly-anticipated film adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" (thanks to a clever April Fools tweet sent out by Smith). Turns out that was just a prank - obviously. Soon after, another ridiculous Mr. Grey and Miss Steele rumor surfaced online - this time involving Hollywood heartthrob Joseph Gordon-Levitt and starlet Scarlett Johansson! Several "Fifty Shades" fans were not amused... but it turns out (once again) that such "official casting" news was just an April Fools' Day PRANK! So no worries, all of you Ian Somerhalder/Matt Bomer/Alexis Bledel/Emilia Clarke/ supporters, the kinky roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele are still up for grabs!

50 Shades of Grey Movie Casting News UPDATE: Ian Somerhalder, Poppy Delevingne Spark MORE Sexy Christian Grey, Anastasia Steel Buzz, Ready for the Kink [POLL]

Check out these short blurbs originally posted by Fansshare, prompting all of the bogus "Fifty Shades" casting rumors.

Fansshare announces: Scarlett Johansson has been cast as Anastaslia Steele.


There has been a huge amount of fuss made about the upcoming 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie, with people talking about the project nonstop, ever since it was announced that it was being made. With the Fifty Shades of Grey screenplay almost complete, casting has begun.

The two main characters that everybody cares about are Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, with a number of top Hollywood stars being linked to the roles. While many fans were hoping for an actress who looks just like Anastasia Steele, it seems that a different approach has been made. Anastasia Steele is described as as a "pale, brown-haired, young woman with blue eyes too big for her face. She is pretty but not overly pretty, and shown to be rather insecure about being slim, pale, and scruffy." So it is surprising to learn that Scarlett Johansson has been cast as Anastasia Steele for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. 

Fans of the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' novels were hoping for either Alexis Bledel or Emilia Clarke for the role, so they are bound to be disappointed to learn that Scarlett Johansson has managed to somehow win the role.


And then in a very similar post...

Fansshare announces: Joseph Gordon-Levitt has now been cast as Christian Grey.


In a move that is likely to shock a lot of people and also disappoint a large number of fans, Inception actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been cast in the role of Christian Grey for the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie. There have been a number of top Hollywood names linked to the role but Joseph has come out on top.

It seems like a strange move to cast Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie and no doubt fans will express their displeasure. The role was expected to go to a younger actor, who actually resembled the description of the character, which Joseph Gordon-Levitt does not. Most fans had been calling for either Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer, or Henry Cavill to be cast as Christian Grey but the executive producers for the movie have decided to mix things up about. It has been claimed that they decided to tweak the novel slightly, which is why Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been cast.


Several fans started freaking out before scrolling to the bottom of the page... where a "Read More" link exclaims:

"April Fool! It's our favorite time of the year! Obviously, what you just read is complete fiction, so don't get carred away! But why not try and fool someone else and get them all crazy like this did you? And again... thanks for being a fool : ).

Fansshare - 1. "Fifty Shades of Grey" fans - 0.

So this official "Fifty Shades of Grey" casting news is just a PRANK! But what do fans think... would Gordon-Levitt and Johansson make a good kinky Mr. Grey and Miss Steele duo? They might have the onscreen talent, chemistry, and sex appeal, but several fans believe they just don't have the right look. Do Mstars readers agree?

Gordon-Levitt and Johansson as Grey and Steele?
