One more name has been added to the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie cast, as “True Blood” star Luke Grimes will play Christian Grey’s brother, Elliot. Grimes is the third name announced for the cast, which is trying to go into production in early November.
The casting news comes from THR, one day after series author E.L. James confirmed that “Once Upon a Time” star Jamie Dornan would play Christian in the adaptation. As everyone knows, Dornan is the second actor to be given the role of Grey, after “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam departed the movie late in the game.
The official reason for Hunnam’s departure was his busy TV schedule, though many theories have been presented as the reason he really left. Dakota Johnson is still on board to play the female lead, Anastasia Steele. “Fifty Shades of Grey” is aiming for a August 2014 release.
