With the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie delayed a month, the cast is still being built around Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey.
To wit, Victor Rasuk will portray Jose, the aspiring photographer and classmate of Anastasia, whose close friendship with her pits him against Christian.
Of course, we all know he loses out to Grey, the wealthy businessman whose disturbing past has left him with a need to dominate his partners ... S&M style.
Rasuk was in HBO’s How to Make It In America, as well as Raising Victor Vargas and the Steven Soderbergh-directed Che. He’ll next be seen in Godzilla.
Luke Grimes was recently cast as Christian's brother Elliot, and Jennifer Ehle as Ana's mother, while Ana's best friend Kate Kavanagh has yet to be cast.
With its new lead, the Fifty Shades of Grey movie will begin production in December. It is still on track, at least as of right now, for an August 2014 release.
