The erotic EL James novel Fifty Shades of Grey is destined to be a hit film if the cast has anything to say about it. Scheduled for release in February 2015, the movie version of the kinky S&M story features a group of veteran and up-and-coming actors that will have you glued to the screen. Those who are not household names yet will no doubt get a career boost from this exposure. Before the film “dominates” the box office, let’s take a moment to meet the Fifty Shades of Grey cast.
1. Dakota Johnson
The daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, Dakota Johnson will star as Anastasia Steele, the film’s central heroine. Although there was initial talk of casting Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in the lead roles, the director thought casting the Twilight stars would be “weird.” We think they made a good choice choosing a relatively unknown actress for this role, and Dakota will no doubt hit the big time after the film’s release.
