Is Kristin Chenoweth Joining The 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Cast?

Posted by FiftyShades on January 22nd, 2014

When we heard that the Tony and Primetime Emmy Award winning actress, Kristin Chenoweth was seen at the Vancouver airport, and was rumoured to be a part of the cast of “Fifty Shades of Grey”, we just had to find out more. After all, with a movie adaptation like that of “Fifty Shades of Grey”, where cast changes, entries and exits seem to be the order of the day, adding or subtracting a celebrity name here and there, is no problem. Not that we are complaining, it would not harm if in fact, a multifaceted talent like Kristin Chenoweth was indeed a part of the adaptation.

But on delving deep into the real reason of her appearance on the sets of the film shooting we found out something completely unexpected. Instead of being a cast of the movie adaptation of the raunchy and erotic thriller written by Erica James, Chenoweth is there to support her boyfriend! Now, you must be wondering, who is the lucky guy and do we know him? We do know, but he does not appear in front of the camera as much as he is useful and important behind the scenes. He is Dana Brunetti, who serves as one of the producers of the adaptation. Now can you guess how important a role he has to play in the scheme of things? After all, he is one of the producers and Kristin as the producer’s girl will definitely have first hand access to all shooting details.

The actress and singer is so fond of the trilogy that she has openly admitted that anything related to Christian Grey is fine with her. She was of course talking about a favourite she has, that she would love to see being shot. The actress and singer, known for her role in “Glee” on television and “Steel Pier” and “Wicked” on Broadway will stop by the sets of “Glee” to celebrate the 100th episode of the television series. Kristin Chenoweth is not the only celebrity who has been rumoured to be a part of the film adaptation of the novel written by E.L. James.

British T.V. actor Charlie Hunnam was the first actor to be selected as the BDSM loving self made billionaire, Christian Grey, first. But after he walked out of the project, citing his commitment to his T.V. series, “Sons of Anarchy”, many known faces were up for grabs to play the role of the businessman with a penchant for pain induced pleasure. The likes of Ryan Gosling, Robert Pattinson, Ian Somerhalder, and Matt Bomer among others were considered for the role. And not only the student, the role of the teacher (figuratively, of course) is still undecided.

If you are wondering how and when did “50 Shades Movie” become a teacher-student saga, let us assure you that we are referring to the character of Mrs. Robinson, who, in the novel is Grey’s confidante, make that a much older confidante, (for she was also Grey’s mother’s friend), and introduced him to the dark pleasures of BDSM. It was rumoured earlier on in the casting process that she would be played by the likes of Katie Holmes and Rose McGowan; we are still waiting for a confirmation.
