  • The cast for the hotly-anticipated Fifty Shades Of Grey movie is FINALLY coming together - come and meet the latest star to join the project...

    Jamie Dornan isn’t the only famous face signed up to the new cast of the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie. It’s been announced that True Blood‘s Luke Grimes has also landed a role in the hotly-anticipated S&M-themed movie, as none other than Christian Grey’s brother, Elliot.

    The 29-year-old actor has popped up in many a US sitcom, starring in Brothers & Sisters and most recently, True Blood, where he’s the new love interest of young redheaded vampire, Jessica.

    Luke’s role in the movie comes just days after Fifty Shades Of Grey author E.L. James confirmed that The Fall‘s Irish dreamboat Jamie Dornan will take on Christian Grey, after Charlie Hunnam pulled out due to work commitments.

    She said: ‘Stow your twitchy palms ladies… our man is here. Welcome to #TeamFifty @JamieDornan1 x.’

    That’s three of the leading roles now sorted, with Jamie, Luke – and Dakota Johnson, who’s taking on the role of Anastasia Steele – all confirmed. With the movie just months away and due to land in cinemas in August 2014, prepare for plenty more announcements in the coming weeks. Reports are circulating that filming will begin as early as NEXT week in Vancouver.

    Now, if we could just get a sneak peek at the script…
