A new and, dare we say, unexpected player is now reportedly in the running to play the leading role of Anastasia Steele in the incredibly-anticipated “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie. Butting heads with a number of qualified actresses, such as “Twilight’s” Kristen Stewart, Alexis Bledel of “Gilmore Girls,” former Disney star Selena Gomez, and Mila Kunis of “That 70s Show,” MTV’s La La Anthony has recently expresses her desire for the part.
The payoff for playing such a racy role, says Anthony, would be more than worth it. "That book spread like wildfire everywhere,” she says. “It went from one person knowing about it to every person you ran into talking about it... so if the opportunity came, I'd do it.”
The question still remains: who will play the leading male role of Christian Grey alongside one of these ladies?
The film adaptation of E.L. James' novel “50 Shades of Grey” is set to be released August 1, 2014.
