The armchair casting for "Fifty Shades of Grey" has covered nearly every actor in Hollywood, but there's a new name to add to the list: Krysten Ritter.
The 31-year-old has been at the center of a new round of wishful thinking after she replied positively to a suggestion from a fan that she should land the role of the submissive Anastasia Steele.
If the film's studio, Universal, came knocking, Ritter already knows what her answer would be.
"Thanks! I would be down," Ritter tweeted with a wink.
The actress, who's been showing her comedic side with ABC's "Don't Trust the B-- in Apt. 23," joins a list of other raven-haired stars whose names have been thrown into the hat for the part, including Lucy Hale, Kristen Stewart and Felicity Jones.
Thus far, however, Universal has stayed pretty quiet on its adaptation of the erotic best-seller since it announced that writer Kelly Marcel will compose the screenplay.
What do you think - would you want to see Ritter star as Steele in the "Fifty Shades" movie?
