Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Cast: Who Will Play Kate Kavanagh and Elliot Grey?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

To put it politely, the casting choices for Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey's roles in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie did not exactly wow the book's fans.

Also to put it politely, Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam have been cast as Ana and Christian and there's no petition or whining that will change it.

However, the question of who will play key supporting characters Kate Kavanagh and Elliot Grey is still unanswered, and may offer readers some hope.

Elliot is Christian's older brother, so that probably rules out a lot of young hunks people wanted to see as Christian. Hunnam himself is 33 years old.

A mature, yet still good-looking actor: Any ideas?

Chris Hemsworth has been rumored, but he's likely too young (30) and/or too famous. Then again, he would certainly add some star power to the movie.

As for Ana's best friend Kate, younger actresses like Blake Lively or Katie Cassidy would fit the blond, gorgeous, young, and sexy mold she requires.

Can you think of any other good candidates?

Watch for the upcoming movie Fifty Shades of Black and Blue. It’s a very funny parody of 50 Shades!

Seriously, enough with the age talk, or that the actors they chose don't resemble the characters enough ( in real life!!!!!), or anything else you feel doesn't match a book you obviously didn't read very well!!!!! Ana is not supposed to be classically beautiful (to CG yes, but this is not his POV). Who cares if Elliot looks like CG? They are not blood related! CG is supposed to be an appear a little older, so what's the matter with a few years? Most fan favorites were older than Charlie. See it, don' see it...... I am regardless. I just wish all this negativity around a great story would cease. Sorry what "sucky" fans you are!!!!!!!

These 2 are just like the characters are described in the books, but if they were to be cast with who they cast for Christian and Ana, they'll totally outshine them. They cast someone for CG who's Elliot's age and looks JUST like Elliot's described, and a girl for Ana who is nearly the polar opposite physically, not pretty, and looks to be in her 30s! They've set the tone for the rest of the cast, and it's going to be so bland.

If they cast Blake and Chris, they would definitely steal the spotlight. The producers and elj should've considered the fans favorites. Yeah yeah we should move on and respect their decision...but, whatever. I hope Blake would be Kate. I always pictured her as Kate like I always pictured Alexis as Ana. Dakota could just be one of those employees of Christian Grey.

Blue Crush 2 actress Sasha Jackson is perfect for Kate imho. not to famous yet but really stunning in a quirky way that would make her a good match for Dakota (who I hope will dye her hair brown). http://www.imdb.com/name/nm235... - says she has other movies coming up so she might not be available but a good pick to go with Dakota and Charlie (altho I am not a fan of those choices at all!!) Let's pray they get Kate and Elliot right!
