Victor Rasuk
The 'How to Make It in America' actor will play Jose Rodriquez who irritates Christian Grey with his close relationship with Anastasia Steele.


Another star is added to the cast ensemble of "Fifty Shades of Grey". "How to Make It in America" star Victor Rasuk is tapped to play Jose Rodriquez, an aspiring photographer and Anastasia Steele's classmate. His close relationship with the co-ed pits him against Christian Grey.

Jamie Dornan will play the bondage enthusiast Christian, replacing Charlie Hunnam who abruptly left the project earlier this year. Dakota Johnson will portray the college student Anastasia, Jennifer Ehle stars as her on-screen mother and Luke Grimes as Christian's brother Elliot.

The filming was supposed to kick off in November but has been moved back to December, just eight months before the planned August 1, 2014 release date, as the script is being polished by "The Wolverine" scribe Mark Bomback. Sam Taylor-Johnson is on board to direct the movie.

While waiting for the movie's release, fans could catch a theater production of "Fifty Shades! The Musical - The Original Parody". It will next play at Jacksonville's Times-Union Center's Moran Theater on December 9, after hitting Chicago, New York and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Rasuk, 29, made a breakout performance as the lead in Peter Sollett's 2002 "Raising Victor Vargas" and then as a skateboarding pioneer in Catherine Hardwicke's 2005 "Lords of Dogtown". He has also appeared in Steven Soderbergh's "The Argentine" and most recently in Steve Jobs biopic "jOBS". He will next be seen starring in "Godzilla" along with Taylor-Johnson's husband Aaron Johnson.
