Luke Grimes Joins Fifty Shades Of Grey
He's playing Christian Grey’s brother, Elliot

27 October 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Variety

While all the Fifty Shades hoopla has been around who will (and in one case, will not) be playing the leading pair, the movie also needs a supporting cast to make sure it’s not all Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan talking about or indulging in BDSM sex. Luke Grimes is now aboard to play Christian Grey’s brother, Elliot.

Dornan, of course, is Christian, with Johnson as his virginal paramour, Anastasia Steele, in the adaptation of E.L. James’ bonkbuster bestseller. Sam Taylor-Johnson is calling the shots, working from an adaptation written by Kelly Marcel and given a going-over by Patrick Marber.

Jennifer Ehle is set to play Anastasia’s outspoken mother, and there are various other roles still to be cast, including Anastasia’s roommate Kate and a bodyguard for billionaire playboy Christian.

Grimes was most recently seen in True Blood on the small screen and was Liam Neeson’s daughter’s boyfriend in Taken 2. He has indie movies Manhattan Undying, Forever and Dark Around The Stars all awaiting release.
