Fans are still waiting on the producers’ choice of cast for the upcoming movie version of “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
Apparently, Katie Cassidy could be a fit for either the lead role of Anastasia Steele, or play the part of her much more seductive best friend, Kate Kavanagh.
“Katie's got a rep for playing assertive, bold, sexually self-assured, and all-around ‘not that innocent’ characters,” relays Fashion & Style.
“To put it in Sex and the City terms, she's much more Samantha than Charlotte. And we all know Ana's basically supposed to be a virginal prude -- at least in the first book. Hence whoever plays her needs to be able to play naive, and Katie's not the woman for that job.”
Other “fan favorites” for the role, says Fashion & Style, include Emma Stone, Blake Lively, Dianna Agron, Minka Kelly, Dakota Fanning, Nikki Reed, and Ashley Benson.
“Fifty Shades of Grey,” as adapted to the big screen from E.L. James’ novel series, is expected to be released in August 2014.
