The final decisions for the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie cast have yet to be made, and a number of sultry actresses are being targeted for the leading role of Anastasia Steele.
“Juno’s” Ellen Page is now a possibility for the role. Thus far, the feedback regarding her playing the part has been mixed.
“While she would clearly need to change her eye color to blue in order to fully embrace the Steele role, the 26-year-old actress undoubtedly has the right complexion, lips and acting chops to pull of the role,” reports EnStarz
There is a clear switch-up necessary here, and some wonder if Page is capable of taking on such a steamy role.
Playing Steele, some say, will at least “‘give her a little street cred’ amongst the mainstream film audience.”
While it is debatable how true that is, it is an interesting point.
The film rendition of E.L. James’ “Fifty Shades of Grey” novel is due to be released on August 1, 2014.
