Although I love Emma Watson, not sure SHE would be the right choice to play Anastasia Steele in the movie version of Fifty Shades of Grey. Mel and I both think Katie Holmes would be PERFECT. She is plain but can definitely bring sexy to the table. Who do you think? Who should play Christian Grey’s girlfriend/wife?
