It’s been a little while since we heard any Fifty Shades Of Grey casting rumors, but they’re starting up again! Back in September it was pretty much confirmed that Ryan Gosling would not be taking on the role of Christian Grey, but that’s fine because we just saw him in the trailer for The Place Beyond The Pines. And yeah, plenty of sexy there, lol. Now rumors are flying about that Krysten Ritter from Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 is a possible frontrunner for the role of Anastasia Steele. Click inside to learn more!
E! has the story:
Haven’t engaged in any Fifty Shades of Grey dream-casting lately?
Fear not, the B—- in Apartment 23 is here to help!
Krysten Ritter, whose name has been bandied about as a possibility to play the impressionable and nubile Anastasia Steele, has only added fuel to the sexy fire by retweeting a fan’s endorsement that stemmed from a Cinemablend report that the 31-year-old actress was gunning for the role.
“Thanks! i would be down. ;) RT@JustMe_Toni: @50shadesclub between the two it should 100% be @Krystenritter,” Ritter tweeted this morning.
Maybe she’s just gracefully accepting a compliment, but what does the wink mean?!
Her rep has not yet returned a request for comment—and her publicist isn’t the only one who’s fielded some Fifty Shades calls over the past year.
With Christian Grey seemingly in the forefront of female fans’ (or, fans’) minds, names like Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer, Chris Hemsworth and Ryan Gosling have all enjoyed time in the spotlight, while Kristen Stewart and Emma Watson have made a few Anastasia casting wish lists, as well.
Based on this report, I don’t know if Krysten is really a frontrunner for the role. I mean, one retweet doesn’t amount to much in terms of casting news… but… you never know! Do any of y’all see Krysten as an Anastasia Steele? I haven’t watched her show but I did see her in a sweet little indie flick with Kate Bosworth last year (L!fe Happens) and I thought she was good.
As I said when we talked about casting news before, I’m hoping the movie might accomplish the rare feat of being better than the book. I really do think that if they get the right people involved (behind the cameras and in front of them) this could be a good flick.
