True Blood Star Officially Cast in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’!

October 28, 2013

No, It’s Not Alexander Skarsgard But Luke Grimes:

Luke Grimes stars as vampire James in HBO's True BloodFans of the novel Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James have heard many rumors flying about who will play the lead character of Christian Grey, the tortured entrepreneur who has a fetish for whips and chains. Even True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard was suggested to fill the part, a rumor that ended up being unfounded when Charlie Hunnam (of Sons of Anarchy fame) was officially signed on. However, his part in this movie was short lived and due to filming conflicts, the role was then handed over to male model and actor, Jamie Dornan.

Now that the main characters have been cast (Dakota Johnson, the daughter of actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, winning the lead female role of Anastasia Steele), a frenzy has started over who will play the other characters in the movie. This time we can confirm that a True Blood actor has managed to score a part – and a big one at that! Luke Grimes (who played vampire James in Season 6 of HBO’s True Blood) has won the coveted role of Elliot Grey, the brother of Christian.

Now all we have left to wonder about, casting wise, is who will play Anastasia’s close friend, Kate Kavanagh? Is there any other True Blood stars that could possibly fit the bill? Guess we’ll have to wait and see…

It has been reported that filming for Fifty Shades of Grey will begin on November 5th in Vancouver.

Who was planning to see this movie before Luke Grimes was cast? Who is now only going to see it because Luke is in it? Let us know in the comments below!

Luke Grimes to Play a Vampire in Season 6 of True Blood

April 5, 2013

His Character, James, is a 70s-made Vampire:

Luke Grimes will star as James the Vampire in Season 6 of HBO's True BloodAccording to TVLine, Luke Grimes will be playing James  the ‘Jim Morrison of vampires‘ in Season 6 of HBO’s True Blood. Grimes (of Brothers & Sisters fame) will apparently be playing a vampire who is smarter, spiritually and emotionally deeper than any we have seen on the show before!

Michael Ausiello from TVLine has put it very eloquently by saying:

Picture a cross between Jim Morrison and Gary Clark Jr. with even more of a poet’s edge. The dude’s every women’s dream come true, and he doesn’t even know it.

Sounds intriguing, right?

Grimes will make his debut as James midway through Season 6 of True Blood, so we will have to wait patiently for this new swoon-worthy character.
