Major '50 Shades' Casting News: Anastasia Steele's Roommate Revealed!

Eloise MumfordFor those of you who are anxiously awaiting the final casting of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, I'd like to introduce you to Eloise Mumford, who Universal Pictures and Focus Features have chosen to play Anastasia Steele's roommate in the film. Yes, that's right, Eloise will be playing the part of Kate Kavanagh.

Considering this is one of the last major roles that needed to be filled, this is great news! We are officially one step closer to the actual movie.

So who is this Eloise, exactly? Well, I've done a little research.

She's a 27-year-old actress who doesn't have the most extensive resume. She appeared in the indie film, "Drones" and on 8 episodes of ABC's "The River," and not too much else. Still, I think this is a good thing. For the same reason we didn't want Robert Pattinson playing Christian Grey, we don't want some famous face playing Kate. We needed someone new.

Not to mention, Eloise looks exactly how I pictured Kate. She's gorgeous, vibrant -- the hair, the eyes, everything. I love it. I think she is the perfect fit for this role. And I think she'll be great alongside Dakota Johnson.

Do you think Eloise will make a good Kate Kavanagh? If not, who do you see instead?

I pictured Blake lively as Kate but this girl ticks all the boxes. Not a bad choice at all!

My God, who is she? Totally unknown.

Kathreine Michelle Lee

she's not a horrible choice but i still imagined a blonde you would be jealous of. I'm not really getting a im jealous of her vibe. It could be worse. Like Dakota Johnson. lol 

Janet Kramb

I think she looks the part just fine!

The picture chosen of her here isn't her best. After a google image search I can say Hell Yes!

I find Eloise rather ordinary and not a great deal more attractive than Dakota Johnson. I wanted Julianna Guill (who wanted to play Kate!) and my second choice was Brooklyn Decker. Any man would probably tell you both arw far more attractive and sexier than Eloise but most women seem satisfied with Eloise.

I've been hoping for Katie Cassidy. Oh well I didn't like dokota johnson either but not my choice.

This whole thing is funny.  Don't get it.  Bsring back Charlie Hunnan.

Stacy Montamble Lott

She's probablly the best casting choice so far. At least she seems to fit the part of kate perfectly.
