'50 Shades of Grey' Casts Hot Actor Who Looks Strangely Familiar

Flicks 39

dylan neal on arrowRemember when we were waiting months and months for even just a crumb of news about Fifty Shades of Grey movie casting? My, times have changed! Now, we're getting a new announcement every day! The latest: Dylan Neal will play Bob Adams. Who the f...logger is that, you ask? Oh, he's Anastasia's step-father. Yup. That's an actual role! 

Apparently, he was in the book, but, uh, his appearance must've been really brief, because for the life of me, I don't remember Bob. Just the fact that Ana's mom, Carla, who we know is going to be portrayed by Jennifer Ehle, had remarried ... a fourth time. But, cool, okay. Why complain about another Hottie McHotterson gettin' on board for the flick (if only for about five minutes max of screen time)?

You might have recognized the 44-year-old Canadian actor as Dr. Ivo on The CW's Arrow. But wait, he's totally been in something else, too, right ... OMG! DOUG! As in Officer Doug Witter, Pacey's big bro on Dawson's Creek, who ends up falling in love with Jack McPhee! HA! And yep, he's also been on Bones and CSI, but aww, he'll always be Officer Doug to Dawson fans!

Anyway, looks like ol' Doug Dylan has come a long way since his Creek days. In addition to scoring the role of Ana's stepdad, he's also signed on to star in Cedar Grove, The Hallmark Channel series with Andie MacDowell that begins shooting its second season this spring -- well after he's wrapped his scenes scene work on Fifty Shades, I'm guessing.

While Dylan's involvement is definitely interesting to hear about, I'm left wondering who the heck they've got for a much more important, intriguing, and yet-to-be-announced role ... Elena Lincoln! The hold-out must mean that they're either falling seriously short filling the gig or it's going to be a BIG reveal. At this rate, we'll know soon enough!

What do you think about Dylan's casting? Do you remember Bob from the series?

He's also Sabrina's fiance until she runs off with Harvey! I'll always remember him for that.

Bob had a very large part in attending Ana's graduation and meeting Christian while they talked about their common hobbies. Obviously the person who writes these articles is not a true Fifty Shades fan....

simpl... simply-gorgeous

Bob is very important to Anna even though Annas mom remarried Bob will always be Annas father

@Lauren, maybe you didn't read the books either because Bob is the husband Ana's mother is currently with. Ray is Ana's step-dad who attends the graduation and meets Christian.

Bob is just Ana's step-dad who her mother is currently married to. RAY is the step-dad who meets Christian and he is the one who Ana calls her DAD

wtf, bob played a huge part in the book, what is wrong with the people who write these

You need to pay more attention i think... he also was in an accident and Anna went to see him with Christian to the hospital... as a matter of fact, something very funny happened there, when the doctor called her "Miss Steele" Christian almost instantly told her "Mrs. Grey" lol

Everyone is thinking of the wrong person. Bob is Carla's new husband and is not in the books much. Ray is her step father and he is the one that comes to graduation and is the hospital from the accident. Ray is a big part of the story but bob is not.

What Christina said. Bob is the mother's new husband. Ray is Ana's stepfather who she considers her dad and comes to her graduation. Bob is only mentioned in the first book briefly when Ana visits her mother.

and its kinda funny how quick people were to jump on the writer of the article when they were the ones that were mistaken. Must be very devoted fans haha
