With a wide array of casting rumors floating around the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, a new name surfaced for the role of Anastasia Steele in former Friday Night Lights standout Minka Kelly.

While the actress is considerably older than the shy, college alumni character, who is listed in the book as a 22-year-old, the 32-year-old does look considerably young for her age. With her innocent-appearing face, natural beauty and her flowing brunette mane, Kelly surely has the attributes to effectively pull off the groundbreaking role.

Kelly starred in (500) Days of Summer and Just Go with It, and is currently filming the TV movie Human, according to IMDb. She also has two films in post-production.

Kelly aside, the top contenders for the Steele role at the moment seem to be former Gilmore Girls' standout Alexis Bledel, Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev and Hunger Games' Jennifer Lawrence.

Screenwriter Kelly Marcel, who is in the midst of penning the movie script, stated that the flick would be staying true to the book with lots of sex and raunchiness. Producers are shooting for an NC-17 rating, according to a write-up in Style magazine. 

Although the producers have yet to officially attach a director to the franchise, Fifty Shades of Grey is slated for its big screen release in summer of 2014. The film will be shot in London.
