On the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night, Jimmy Fallon had a super fun game planned for his guest, as per usual. Jamie Dornan, star of the soon-to-be biggest grossing movie of all time that doesn’t have explosions/superheroes/animation, Fifty Shades of Grey, joined the host for “Fifty Accents of Grey.” Taking turns pressing the “ultra high-tech accent generator,” both host and guest read one line each from the book, Fifty Shades of Grey.
Watch the video of this here below.
Fallon was adorable as usual, unable to maintain a straight face (one of his most endearing qualities), and pretty good with a Russian accent, sounding like Peter Stormare in Armageddon. Dornan got to do various sexually charged lines in Scottish and French as well as Count Cork Irish (different than his own real Irish accent — he was born in Belfast), while Fallon scored with Russian, Cowboy (“that’s not an accent”), and Italian (“I sound like Mario”).
If your ultimate fantasy is to hear Jamie Dornan say in a Scottish accent, “I don’t remember reading about nipple clamps in the Bible,” you need to watch this video!
Fifty Shades of Grey tells the story of innocent young college graduate Anastasia Steele (played in the film by Dakota Johnson), who is drawn into a relationship with Christian Grey (Dornan), a businessman who does not let his emotions get in the way of his sexual proclivities. This erotic romance trilogy, which includes Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, set the world ablaze and became a world phenomenon, selling over 100 million copies and translated into 52 languages.
Universal has already greenlit the big-screen adaptations of the sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed (see “˜Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Sequels Are On The Way). GoD (okay me) is going tonight to see this sexy moneymaker, and will have the review for you this week.
Fifty Shades of Grey comes out this weekend, Friday, February 13, 2015, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Movie theaters will be packed with excited women and perhaps less excited men. One thing’s for sure….this movie will make one billion dollars.
