'Fifty Shades Of Grey' News: Max Martini Cast As Christian's Bodyguard
Max Martini Cast In 'Fifty Shades'
Martini, who has most recently appeared in Tom Hanks' critical hit Captain Phillips and in Charlie Hunnam vehicle Pacific Rim, is best known for playing Max Gerhardt on CBS war drama The Unit from 2006 to 2009. His experience playing military characters will make it an easy task for him to slip into the character of Jason.
In the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy written by British author E.L. James, Jason is an ex-military man with the task of overseeing the well-to-do Christian’s security detail.
Playing the Christian Grey is Once Upon a Time and Marie Antoinette actor Jamie Dornan, who will be acting in the film’s erotic scenes opposite Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. The Rivers' Eloise Mumford has been cast as Kate Kavanaugh, while Luke Grimes will play Christian’s brother Elliot. Jennifer Ehle will play the role of Carla May Wilks and Victor Rasuk the friend-zoned José Rodriguez.
Fifty Shades' Release Date Pushed Back
Fifty Shades of Grey will commence filming in Vancouver next month. Due to some production delays, including Hunnam’s decision to back out of the role of Christian, and the competitive 2014 summer film lineup, Universal Pictures opted to delay the film’s release to Valentine’s Day weekend 2015.
