Search for "Fifty Shades of Grey" Cast Widens to Include Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam
The search for the perfect “Fifty Shades of Grey” cast might just be called “Fifty Shades of Actors”—as the number of names bandied about for the roles keeps on growing.
The latest celebs being considered are Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam. Miss Johnson, who previously starred in the FOX-TV comedy “Ben & Kate,” is reportedly up for the lead role of Anastasia "Ana" Steele. Hunnam, of “Sons of Anarchy” fame, could become the elusive Christian Grey character.
Aside from being the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, Dakota has appeared in films like “Engagement” and “21 Jump Street.” Hunnam’s movie roles include “Pacific Rim,” “Deadfall,” and “The Ledge.” He also starred in the acclaimed but short-lived Judd Apatow series, “Undeclared.”
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is slated for an August 2014 release.
