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.

The Hollywood Gossip

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.
