Katie Cassidy is the next rumored female actress to play Kate Kavanagh in the film adaptation of E. L. James’s Fifty Shades of Grey. But, can she also be in the mix to play the lead role of Anastasia Steele?
On Friday, Cassidy, who was recently named Lady Foot Locker’s ambassador, tweeted a link to Books & Review about the rumor. Her response to the story? “Yes please.”
Fans Share reported that the role of Kate, Anastasia’s best friend and roommate, should either be Cassidy, Blake Lively, Amanda Seyfried or Jennifer Lawrence. “Katie Cassidy, not only does she share the same name as the character, but we think she is just feisty enough to play the gorgeous part.”
Katie Cassidy also made the International Business Times list for “Top 10 Actresses Who Could Play Kate Kavanagh.”
Astrochicks feels indifferent and believes Cassidy should play Ana, "a pale, brown-haired girl with blue eyes too big for her face. She’s clumsy and awkward but very beautiful."
The Daily Mail stated, “According to reports, Katie...is looking a likely choice for the part of Anastasia.”
The 25-year-old actress will play Laurel Lance in the CW’s new fall show, Arrow. She has also starred in Monte Carlo and appeared on Melrose Place, Supernatural and Gossip Girl.
So far, Ian Somerhalder, Ryan Gosling and Chris Hemsworth are the rumored frontrunners to play billionaire Christian Grey.
The trilogy sold over 25 million books worldwide. According to Hollywood Reporter, Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti, who produced The Social Network, have been chosen as the producers of this soon-to-be hit film.
