And then there were three. How to Make it In America‘s Victor Rasuk has been cast in one of the last remaining major roles for the 50 Shades of Grey adaptation, Deadline reports. Rasuk will be playing Jose, the third part of a love triangle with the film’s leads. Those parts have already gone to Dakota Johnson, who will be playing Anastasia Steele, and Jamie Dornan, who will be playing Christian Grey. Jose is Anastasia’s devoted friend and Christian’s rival for her love.
Sam Taylor-Johnson, of Nowhere Boy fame, is directing.
In terms of choosing the cast and crew, 50 Shades has already been an eventful ride. The actor initially tapped to play Christian, Brit Charlie Hunnam, signed on and then dropped out, and producers have brought in several writers to polish the script. But, if all goes according to plan, the film, which is an adaptation of EL James’s best-selling erotic novel, is slated for release next summer.
