Analeigh Tipton to Star in Fifty Shades of Grey?

by at . Comments

In the never-ending online Fifty Shades of Grey movie casting game, Matt Bomer, Ian Somerhalder, and Channing Tatum tend to dominate the guys.

Likewise, big names like Emma Watson, Nina Dobrev, Krysten Ritter and Lucy Hale are often whispered about as likely potentials for the female lead.

A new name has emerged recently, however, and she's generating a lot of buzz in spite (or because) of the fact that she's less famous: Analeigh Tipton.

The America’s Next Top Model alum and Crazy Stupid Love star can be seen in the upcoming Warm Bodies, and said she'd be open to the sexy role.

“I have heard that, which I think is pretty neat," she said.

"Do I have an interest? Yes. Well, I mean it’s a role that seems pretty brave, and I think that’s curious, that kind of piques my interest. See how bold I can get. I’m open to it.”

She is stunning, that's for sure, whereas Ana is meant to be more typical. Pretty, but not model-gorgeous. But is that really a hindrance for Analeigh?

Whereas big names like Watson or Dobrev would evoke comparisons to their other characters, someone like Tipton could really become Anastasia Steele.

Plus, she's already named Ana ... sort of!

What do you think of her in the role?
