Krysten Ritter's 'down' for '50 Shades' movie
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?

They should make it with puppets.
like this exit better...more current
she has a gown like this too...
its the 50 shades of grey actress...yep she's the one i know it...
great show...and yes this is the won....hahahaha
And this matters because? She's put herself in the ring. No one has expressed any interest in her. Why is this on any site related to CNN, a formerly reputable news organization. By the way, I'm up for it too. If anyone asks.
forget i said that.
I vote no one and the movie never gets made.
eg and dave–
There are not enough words in the English language to express my indifference as to which actors will be chosen to appear in a movie version of the "50 Shades" books.
I think it should be Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling....I could only see them while reading the book
everyone is trendy nowadays...being trendy adds pizzazz to life.
No, no way, too trendy, too goth essence... Ashley Greene or Emilia Clarke
oh yea...she's alone again.
yes I would in a second but I wouldn't call her a ho.
we know this.
Alessandra Torresani, from the TV show Caprica.
GET OUT OF THE HOUSE...
hello? jelly donut?
Hey you guys know that 20 children were slaughtered about a month ago right? Because of a culture where people take things like this seriously? Just checking. Now wash your hands.
She is the opposite of sweet innocent Anna! Not a good choice!
I think Kristen Stewart would be better suited for Anastasia. For Christian I really think they should get EJ from Days of our LIves!!!
I couldn't agree more with your idea to have James Scott (ej) play Christian! He would do wonderfully and i would actually want to see the movie then!
I just don't see the appeal of a PG-13 'porn' movie.
could give a dam about 42 ... never did.
Figures. She's to beautifull, the chacter is supposed to be pretty, pleasant to look at. They will screw it up. Of course, the movie is nothing but porn, so I don't even know how they'll pull it off.
krystin ritter has a pretty face but not to play ana steele
nail's, mani and pedi and rollers and pizza
Lady Gaga for Anastasia!
This isn't Shakespeare were dudes play women's roles. Sorry.
I think that if one more of you mentions Kristen Stewart for 50 Shades, my computer, Kindle, Ipad and smartphone are going to explode in disgust.
The character of Ana was based off the actress Kristen Stewart. YES Kristen Stewart and her real life boyfriend Rob Pattinson was used to base the character of Christian.
I don't like that actress...she's so aloof in all of her interviews and the continuous running of her hands in her hair drives me nuts...I would go for Anne Hathaway...but of course with longer hair.
No. She is the opposite of Ana. Krysten would be a good Leila.
@ K Fan...I don't know how much experience she has but she certainly has a submissive look, more so than Ritter.
It saddens me that someone would even think about making this mediocre book into a movie. Mommie Porn a.k.a. Badly written novel. Perhaps the author should spend her time rewriting the book to make it a passable piece of fiction.
My safety word is "creampie"
She should not be cast as Anastasia. She probably could pull off the Leila character.
I dont know who this woman is.
she's not anastasia but she could totally play the role of the crazy x-submissive Lyla
I say Alexis Bledel or Felicity Jones for the role the other two mentioned in the article are straight hells no
she was recently interviewed on tv all "concerned" about what her young daughter views on social media yet she plays a "loose" woman on her show and now 50 shades. what a hipocrit
Krysten Ritter's not a bad actress, but doesn't she come across as a little too sophisticated and confident to play Anastasia? I'd suggest a young actress named Troia Bellisario who's currently being (IMO) underutilized in "Pretty Little Liars."
we'll get you bright and shiney soon.
They should cast Krystle Luther
Horrible. Ana is not "funny", she's shy, doesn't know much about the world, and intellegent. Is that what you think of when you see this lady? as far as her work todate? there is nothing in her resume that would lead me to believe she could even remotedly pull this off.
Dude, this is a rumor about casting for a movie based on twilight fanfiction, ANYONE could pull this off.
KRYSTLE LUTHER FOR ANASTASIA!
