    That is absolutely hilarious. We should all tweet @charliehunnam telling him how much we loved his novel, Apocalypse Now Now. Watch Amazon for a spike in sales.

    Ha - brilliant. Now if only Karen Jayes and Karen Jeynes could merge into one doubly excellent writer, our confusion wold be further lessened.

    Rolling around laughing: "Apocalypse Now Now aka Christian Grey: ORIGINS". I totally second Rachel's proposal.
