Latest Actress Tapped to Play Anastasia Steele Has at Least One Thing Going for Her (VIDEO)

Flicks 11

Analeigh TiptonAs we get closer and closer to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie finally being cast, yet another somewhat unknown actress has popped up on the radar screen as a potential Anastasia Steele -- and she just might be the right person for the role.

At 24, she's the right age. And she's a brunette with gorgeous eyes, a soft-spoken voice, and a seemingly innocent demeanor that still has a certain level of mystery beneath it.

I know what you're thinking -- plenty of actresses fit that exact profile, right?

But how many Anastasia contenders do you know who have a little something extra going for them -- like having the perfect name to go along with the role?

Ok, ok, enough suspense. Warm Bodies star Analeigh Tipton is interested in playing Anastasia Steele -- a role she thinks of as "brave." 

And if the name Analeigh Tipton sounds sort of familiar, but not really (that's how I reacted when I first heard it), let me try and jog your memory a bit.

More from The Stir: Maggie Gyllenhaal as Ana in '50 Shades of Grey' Movie Is All Sorts of Wrong

Analeigh's big claim to fame was making it to the top three on America's Next Top Model back in 2008, and she also starred in the film Crazy, Stupid, Love.

And now that she's battled zombies in the upcoming film, Warm Bodies, she's more than ready to tackle whatever Christian Grey throws her way.

To hear more about Analeigh's interest in the role, check out this video clip.

Soooo, whaddya think? She's cute, right?

I'm not sure what exactly it is, but something about her strikes me as very Anastasia Steele-like. (And no, I don't think it's simply because she has "Ana" in the first part of her name.)

She seems sweet and innocent enough, but also seems like the kind of girl who has more than her fair share of secrets, which sums up Ana's character perfectly.

Hmm. I may be wrong, but I'm thinking we all need to keep an eye on Analeigh as a definite possibility for Anastasia.

Do you think she's the right fit for the role?

She is cute. She just seems nervous to me.

I think she would play a pretty good Ana. I will have to check out one of the other movies she played in.

I do not see her as Ana! Ian Somerhaulder as Christian yes plz but no not her...and not nina debrov either.

she is cute and has the innocent part but can she pull off the strong part that stands up to Christen? Remember he finds that attractive and refreshing about her because no one else stands up to him like she does. :) Ashley Greene and Lily Tomlin would be great because I know they could pull off the acting and they have the looks. Nina just isn't right and Kristen can't act as much as this role requires.

I think that Lyndsy Fonseca would be perfect for the role of Anastasia Steele. She has all the phsical attributes; hair, eyes, lips. Not to mention that she is pale but not to pale. She is shorter but all together healthy looking. She has played roles that make her weaker and stronger. She has played roles that allow her to do some minor butt-kicking (the scene with Jack Hyde). Look her up and let me know if ya'll agree!!
