Fans of E.L. James’ book series “Fifty Shades of Grey” are still waiting on pins and needles to hear who will be cast for the film rendition that is set to come out next August. Thus far, top choices have included actresses like Alexis Bledel, Selena Gomez and Kristen Stewart, but now “The Wipeout” host Vanessa Lachey is in the running.
At first glance, Lachey can be said to be physically suitable for the role of Anastasia Steele. But unlike perhaps our other potential leading ladies, the "Fifty Shades" books mean something very personal to Lachey: she says they helped her get through her pregnancy.
Regardless of whether or not she is selected for the part, Lachey has nothing but good things to say about the “Fifty Shades” series.
"Any casting opportunity, I'd be honored,” she said. “If my blessings would continue into a movie role, of course, I'd love to be a part of that franchise.”
Let’s see if this new mommy ends up on screen alongside a hunky Christian Grey.
