While fans are focused on who will be playing Christian Grey and Ana Steele in the upcoming "Fifty Shade of Grey" movie cast, we wonder about other characters, such as Elena a.k.a Mrs. Robinson. How about Jenny McCarthy?
*[CONTAINS BOOK SPOILERS]*
For those of you who don't know already [but you should], Elena Lincoln (whom Anastasia semi-jokingly dubs Mrs. Robinson) is also a very important character in E.L. James' "Fifty Shades" trilogy. She was Christian's first sexual experience and, according to him, introduced him to the world of BDSM by making him her submissive, which sparked teenage arousal in him. She was one of Christian's mother's close married older friends and persuaded him into an affair with her, which lasted until he was twenty-one when her husband found out, and although they are no longer sexual, they still remain close friends (until "Fifty Shades Freed").
Jenny McCarthy, 40, is one of the small fan-favorites for the role of Elena.
The actress started out as a Playboy model and has also starred in "Scary Movie 3" and has played as Courtney in TV series "Two and a Half Men." She now has her own TV show on VH1, "The Jenny McCarthy Show," which seems to be turning out to a big hit.
But it looks like McCarthy would rather play 22-year-old innocent college grad Anastasia Steele.
Back in March, McCarthy told Howard Stern that she likes to be handled by a man who is NOT the submissive type, basically someone like 27-year-old sexy billionaire and BDSM-crazed Christian Grey.
Also in March, McCarthy had a steamy exchange with "Blue Bloods" actor Donnie Wahlberg.
McCarthy took to her blog to talk about what happened.
"Let's just say we visually give '50 Shades of Grey' a run for its money. It gets steamy. I mean like really steamy," McCarthy wrote. "Being turned on by a guy is always fun but to have it legitimately happen to you on TV is to be turned back into a 12-year-old. By the time we get into the groundbreaking interview, my face turns fifty shades of RED."
But because of her age, we would say that it's safe to say fans see her more as Elena rather than young Ana.
She will face a lot of competition. Stars such as "Sex and the City" Kim Cattrall, "Snow White and the Huntsman" Charlize Theron, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Sharon Stone among some others are all huge fan-favorites for the role of Elena.
