Talk to any Fifty Shades fan a year ago, and their biggest question would have been who would be in the 50 Shades of Grey movie cast.
Rumors were running wild and internet campaigns waged to be sure that the fan favorites would be playing the roles they had grown to love. While the most amount of buzz was around who would play the 50 Shades of Grey characters Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, there was an equal amount of chatter around the lesser supporting roles.
In early September 2013 we started getting hints about what the Fifty Shades of Grey movie cast would look like, with E L James announcing who would be the lead roles. Right away there was a divide in the fan community, especially around the casting of Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey. There were a lot of upset fans, especially in the Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder camps.
Less than a month later, a hiccup with the Fifty Shades of Grey movie cast happened when it was announced that Charlie would be stepping down from his role due to scheduling conflicts with his Sons of Anarchy role. Nine days later, we found out who the new Christian Grey would be when Jamie Dornan took over Charlie’s previous role.
Over the next few weeks, more 50 Shades of Grey cast members were announced with the addition of Jose, Kate, and Mia’s actors thrown in the mix. By the end of 2013 we had the majority of the 50 Shades of Grey actors announced, with a few familiar names in the mix.
Christian Grey – Jamie Dornan
Anastasia Steele – Dakota Johnson
Katherine Kavanagh (Ana’s best friend) – Eloise Mumford
Jose Rodriguez – Victor Rasuk
Mia Grey (Christian’s little sister) – Rita Ora
Elliot Grey (Christian’s brother) – Luke Grimes
Carla Wilkes (Ana’s mother) – Jennifer Ehle
Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey – Marica Gay Harden
Carrick Grey – Andrew Airlie
Jason Taylor (Christian’s security man) – Max Martini
Ray Steele (Anastasia’s step father) – Callum Keith Rennie
For the most part, the majority of the 50 Shades of grey movie casting involve newer or lesser known actors. This is probably a good move on E L James’s part as that suspension of disbelief will be easier without any huge blockbuster names thrown in the mix.
We’ve had a few glimpses as to how the 50 Shades of Grey movie characters are interacting with each other. First there were paparazzi shots from the set showing Anastasia and Christian chatting, Jose hanging out, and even a few shots of Kate. When the official shots of Anastasia were released on Valentine’s Day, with more of Christian Grey in June, the buzz about the Fifty Shades of Grey cast went to the next level.
The final decision as to whether this Fifty Shades of Grey cast can work together will all come to light on February 14th 2015 when the movie is released for the world to see. I know I’ll be there with my big old bucket of popcorn!
