Luke Grimes to Star in Fifty Shades of Grey as Elliot: Good Choice?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Luke Grimes has won the role of Elliot, Christian Grey's brother, in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, filling in another key piece of the casting puzzle.

The 29-year-old will join Jamie Dornan as his on-screen brother and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele in the film, which begins shooting next month.

Anastasia’s roommate Kate Kavanagh, and Christian’s mother and bodyguard, are among the supporting roles still open in the much-talked about project.

Kate and Elliot, of course, must have a certain chemistry themselves.

Elliot is described in the books as tall, muscular, and wide-shouldered with curly blonde hair and blue eyes. He is funny, affectionate, and laid-back.

He is the adopted, elder brother to Christian Grey and Mia Grey.

He is first introduced in Fifty Shades of Grey, when he accompanies his brother Christian to pick up a drunk Anastasia Steele at a bar in Portland.

There he meets Kate, who becomes his own romantic interest.

Think he's a good fit for the film, readers? Who would you like to see as Kate alongside Elliot? Share your comments on all things 50 Shades below.

I love all the comments that says "this guy looks nothing like Elliott in the book"...people, it's called a haircut, dye job and color contacts. Not too hard to transform yourself in Hollywood. Get a grip, it's a freaking movie. No one they cast for any of the characters will live up to everyone's expectations or standards in the book, that's why the book is fiction...as in, none of these characters exist!!

I agree with him playing the role! I wanna see who they are gonna cast to play Jose and Ms. Robinson!! I think a good lady to Patti Ms Robinson would be the lady on 2 broke girls and stifflers mom! She has the sex appeal and age!

Attention Christian Grey Lovers! If you loved fifty, then you will love Rip Me Apart. The Hero is so like Christian Grey! HERE IS AN EXCERPT: "Suddenly he’s on his feet again and his hands are in my hair as he crushes his lips on mine. Wow. I can’t breathe. I can’t think. Blazing euphoria shoots from the top of my head to the tip of my toes as I melt into the kiss. The kiss is desperate, I don't know if it's my desperation or his. But it scares me; I've never been kissed this hungrily before. This man kissing me isn't the impassive, composed Gabriel I know. This one is a beast of a man, aggressively taking what he wants without asking. "I want you beneath me. I want you." He enunciates each word between wet possessive kisses as if he is laying his claim on me. Gabriel’s tongue explores my mouth greedily, his lips covering mine. His fingers prowl my hair, my nape, my neck, then down to my bare shoulders. He kisses me as if he is a man dying of thirst, and I am water. He nibbles at my earlobe and chin, licking my cheeks, biting my neck. I'm falling, breathless, lost in pleasure I never imagined. Get your copy on Amazon. The Book is called Rip Me Apart.

Wtf he looks nothing like Elliot! Elliot is taller than Christian and a big guy too. He's masculine. He has blonde curly hair too. Luke is a good actor but he's certainly not like Elliot Grey! They haven't cast anyone according to the books yet! They're ruining this. Ugh.
