Real 50 Shades of Grey movie casting news is starting to break! No stars have scored the roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey just yet, but finally hungry fans are being fed the names of actors and actresses who are actually being considered for the film.
According to The Wrap, sources close to the film have confirmed that 23-year-old actress Dakota Johnson is on the list of potential Anas. The stunning starlet shared a sexy scene with singer Justin Timberlake in The Social Network, and she starred in the short-lived FOX sitcom Ben and Kate. Johnson doesn’t have any experience shooting nude scenes, but her famous mother certainly does — perhaps Melanie Griffith can give her daughter a few pointers about how to survive steamy steamy sex scenes. Dakota’s dad is also famous, but it’s hard to imagine Miami Vice star Don Johnson being okay with the thought of his little girl starring in a movie that’s all about kinky sex.
If Dakota Johnson does get cast as Anastasia Steele in the 50 Shades of Grey movie, then who will play her Christian Grey? Variety debunked a recent rumor claiming that Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam is the top contender for the role, but he could still end up being Dakota’s leading man — while Hunnam isn’t the front-runner for the part, he is reportedly on a list of actors that are being looked at.
The Wrap reported that the role of Ana will be cast first, which makes sense. The actress who gets the part is going to be getting tied up and spanked by her costar, so she needs to play a part in deciding who plays Mr. Grey — things are going to be uncomfortable enough as it is, so the poor girl isn’t going to want some actor she can’t stand whipping her.
So can you picture Dakota as Ana?
