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

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.

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.

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?
