Victor Rasuk Joins the Cast of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’.
‘How to Make It in America’ star Victor Rasuk has been cast in the Universal and Focus Features version of E.L. James’ “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
The actor will play Jose, Anastasia Steele’s close friend from college and romantic rival of billionaire Christian Grey.
Along with HBO’s How to Make it in America, he is known for roles in “Raising Victor Vargas”, Steven Soderbergh’s “Che” and recent Steve Jobs feature film, “Jobs”.
It is expected that Sam Taylor-Johnson will direct this project along side Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti as producers.
Variety was one of the first news sources to report that Jamie Dornan will play Christian Grey after Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the film.
Dakota Johnson is still set to play Anastasia Steele.
