‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Max Martini cast as Jason Taylor


It looks like the casting news for the upcoming film Fifty Shades of Grey just keeps filing in. It would seem that Pacific Rim actor Max Martini has been cast as Christian Grey’s bodyguard Jason Taylor.

Those of you who have read the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy by best-selling author E.L. James knows that wherever Christian Grey goes, Jason Taylor is not very far behind. He is also charged by his boss to watch out for the young Anastasia Steele once she and Christian begin their “relationship.” As many of you can imagine, dating one of the richest most eligible bachelors in the entire world comes with its fair share of dangers.

Fifty Shades of Grey will follow the lives of a young billionaire CEO by the name of Christian Grey, played by Once Upon A Time’s Jamie Dornan, who has a certain appetite for the kinky side of bedroom play and his soon-to-be girlfriend, the young, naïve Anastasia Steele, played in the film by Dakota Johnson.

Fifty Shades of Grey is being directed by filmmaker Sam Taylor-Johnson, the wife of Kick-Ass star Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

The screenplay is being written by Saving Mr. Banks scribe Kelly Marcel.

Fifty Shades of Grey is scheduled to be released on February 13, 2015.
