Casting rumors surrounding the film version of E.L. James' erotica "Fifty Shades of Grey" continue to heat up the web at a rapid pace and a good portion of the chatter has revolved around the million-dollar question of who will play the role of Anastasia Steele.

A name that is no stranger to the saucy movie's buzz is "Don't Trust the B**** in Apartment 23's" Krysten Ritter, who continues to come up amid the slew of Internet chatter. Unlike several of the other candidates who continue to remain mum on the subject, Ritter has been quite vocal about wanting such a role. 

A Twitter user showed her allegiance to the 31-year-old over "Les Miserables" Anne Hathaway for the part by saying "RT @JustMe_Toni:  @50shadesclub between the two it should 100% be @KrystenRitter."

The 31-year-old then tweeted back with "Thanks!  I would be down. ;)"

While Ritter's actual age is considerably older than the Anastasia Steele character, she can still portray a sweet and sexy persona as well as an innocent look. To top it off, the actress, like the Steele character, has a fair skinned complexion, dark hair and elegant shape.

Ritter clearly has the acting chops to pull off the character, as she's donned a wide range of roles that range from "27 Dresses" to AMC's "Breaking Bad."

Other notable actresses who are likely to compete with Ritter for the female lead include Felicity Jones of "The Worst Witch," Anne Hathaway of "Les Miserables," and "Gilmore Girls'" Alexis Bledel, along with several other notables.

The "Fifty Shades of Grey" premise revolves around Steele, who gets herself involved in a dominant and submissive sexual relationship with the S&M-crazed billionaire Christian Grey. Through a mutual "agreement," the two delve into the world of bondage and masochism. 

Screenwriter Kelly Marcel recently revealed in an interview with Style Magazine that the film will be "raunchy" and have "a lot of sex." 

"Well, there is going to be a lot of sex in the film. It will be NC-17. It's going to be raunchy. We are 100 percent going there," she said.
