The singer chimed in on the recent “50 Shades of Grey” shakeup during an interview with London’s KISS FM, saying she’d nominate James Franco to take on the role of Christian Grey.
“I love James Franco,” Spears said. “I think he’s really cool.”
Maybe Spears’ endorsement is reciprocity for earlier in the year when Franco sang her 2004 song, “Everytime,” in the movie “Spring Breakers.”
Either way, Spears is one of a gazillion people to weigh in on the casting decision. Director Oliver Stone told The Wall Street Journal that Leonardo DiCaprio is his pick to play Grey, while fans have remained voracious in their desire to see Matt Bomer land the gig.
