'50 Shades of Grey' Dream Cast: Who Should Play Jose Rodriguez?

KSTEW on '50 Shades'
Kristen talks working with Rob again Watch »

As casting for Universal's Fifty Shades of Grey slowly gets underway, everyone -- including Celebuzz -- has an opinion on who should play leads Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. However, the supporting characters are just as important!

Jose Rodriguez is Ana's good friend from college, and while he may want more, she only sees him in a platonic way. Think of him as Jacob from Twilight.

Jose, who attended college with Ana (so 21, 22), is a photographer. Physically, here is how he's described in the book:

"He's tall. He's all shoulders and muscles, tanned skin, dark hair and burning dark eyes."
The first person that comes to mind is Mark Salling, 29. The Glee star matches Jose's physical description exactly, and he totally has the edgy photographer thing going on. Celebuzz is told Mark's name has been in consideration along with Vampire Diaries star Michael Trevino, 27.

While Trevino definitely has the attitude and look, it's almost like he's too pretty. Hello-- wouldn't Ana have hooked up with him in college? Plus, we are pretty on board with his Vampire Diaries counterpart Ian Somerhalder to play Christian Grey, so doubtful both of those sexy stars would get cast.

Take a look at the gallery above for who else Celebuzz could see as Jose Rodriguez!

    Michael Trevino should definitely play Jose! I've been saying this every since I've read the books and I'd be stoked to see him get the part. :)

    The best Jose is Blair Redford of the Lying Game.

    i think lucy hale would make a great Anastasia, Ian Somerhalder christian grey, and Blake lively as Kate, Carlos Pena Jr. as Jose. when i read the books those are the character who i kept picturing in mind. if they cast rob and kristen stewart they will just ruin it!

    Amanda Seyfried, yes, for Anna. Sorry, ladies. Chris Hemsworth, Ian Sommerhalder - dum, de-dum, dum... "Christian" is smart, coy, witty, handsome... This role needs hotness and a good actor. RYAN GOSLING. That man can act with his 'eyes'. We don't want hot and dumb. Please, no. (...biting my lip) LOL

  • kacndw

    Jake Gyllenhaal as Christian - light entrancing eyes, captivating smile, great body, sharp business edge Amanda Seyfried as Anastasia - gorgeous, innocent eyes and demeanor, amazing blush factor

  • Tanya Miller

    I hear that book is awful, just glorified fanfiction. However, the movie will be huge no matter what, and being a huge Mark Salling fan, I want the best for him. Also, I'd pay to go see him read the phonebook, so I say, cast him!

  • Nina_Stars09

    Isnt mark graduaating now tho? He can grow his hair out ?

  • Chelsea

    I like Mark Salling, but then after seeing Tyler Blackburn, I think he would be perfect for Jose. He even looks artistic with his long hair and facial hair.

  • Nina_Stars09
