'Fifty Shades of Grey' adds 'True Blood' actor Luke Grimes

True Blood star and Brothers & Sisters alum Luke Grimes has joined the cast of Fifty Shades of Grey, EW confirmed Friday.

Variety initially reported that Grimes will be playing the role of Christian Grey’s brother in director Sam Taylor-Johnson’s big-screen adaptation of E L James’ bestseller. Dakota Johnson is playing the lead role of Anastasia Steele, and Wednesday reports surfaced that Irish actor Jamie Dornan was in final talks to play the part of Christian Grey. Focus and Universal have yet to confirm Dornan’s casting, but James did tweet a warm welcome to the actor on Thursday.

UPDATE: The Fifty Shades of Grey twitter account confirmed the casting later in in the day, and James retweeted.

Fifty Shades of Grey is expected to hit theaters Aug. 1, 2014.

SXSW: A night out with Alexander Skarsgard and the cast of 'The East' -- EXCLUSIVE

The East, a new high-stakes, big-ideas eco-thriller starring Brit Marling, Alexander Skarsgard, and Ellen Page, closed out the SXSW Film Festival on Saturday and EW was invited to join director Zal Batmanglij and the cast for the long night of celebration. The evening began at the Four Seasons lobby bar with Batmanglij, a vegan, sitting on a sofa covered in cow pelt. “I honor this animal,” he said with a laugh.

He first met Marling at Georgetown University, and the two, along with fellow filmmaker Mike Cahill, quickly became best friends and collaborators. In 2011 the trio revealed the potency of their creative force with Another Earth (written by Marling and directed by Cahill) and Sound of My Voice (written by Marling and directed by Batmanglij), both purchased by Fox Searchlight. That same year, Marling and Batmanglij sold their spec script The East, about a private investigator (Marling) who infiltrates an anarchist collective and quickly feels her loyalties waver and shift.

'True Blood's Carrie Preston talks about directing 'That's What She Said'

 “I like to say that it’s not a bromance, it’s a womance,” says Carrie Preston, director of That’s What She Said, which opens today in New York and Los Angeles.

Preston, (whom you’ll recognize from True Blood and guest appearances on The Good Wife) has been working to bring this raunchy female comedy, starring Anne Heche, Marcia DeBonis, and Ali Shawkat, to the big screen for close to a decade. “[Screenwriter] Kellie Overbey gave me this play called Girl Talk. I read it and totally fell in love with the characters,” says Preston. “I told her she had to let me direct it and put Marcia DeBonis in it.”

Preston directed it for the stage and then worked for the next six years with Oberbey on the adaptation. “It’s really about friendship,” she says. “And it has my kind of humor — really smart, witty, and acerbic.”  READ FULL STORY

Sundance: 'True Blood' star Carrie Preston talks her festival debut as a director -- VIDEO

Most fans of Carrie Preston know her best as the high-strung Arlene on HBO’s True Blood, or her recurring role as the brilliantly ditzy lawyer Elsbeth on CBS’ The Good Wife. But she was at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival for her work behind the camera, as the director of the distaff sex comedy That’s What She Said. It isn’t her directorial debut — that was the 2005 indie 29th and Gay — but it is her first time at Sundance as a filmmaker. So to commemorate the occasion, we took to the skies, riding a gondola at the Canyons Resort high above Park City, Utah. As I struggled to overcome my fear of heights, Preston gamely talked about her film, her hilariously harrowing trip to the annual Sundance directors brunch, and what to expect from both True Blood‘s Arlene (more Scott Foley!) and The Good Wife‘s Elsbeth (is Will’s grand jury case over?). Check out our interview below:  READ FULL STORY
