Casting rumors for "Fifty Shades of Grey," Universal's adaptation of the surprise literary smash that started out life as online "Twilight" fan fiction, have been swirling since the rights were snapped up last year. Initial contenders Emma Watson and Elizabeth Olsen downplayed rumors before being ruled out entirely, and speculation about Kristen Stewart and Keira Knightley proving just as baseless. But with Sam Taylor-Wood officially onboard to direct, a cast needs to be established quickly, with a release date less than a year away. The latest actress who could be up for the role: Dakota Johnson, who starred in small, buzzy roles in both "21 Jump Street" and "The Social Network" before anchoring a short-lived Fox sitcom called "Ben and Kate," at least according to The Wrap.

Her face and name might not ring any bells but we've all pretty much seen her on screen and know who her parents are. Remember the girl who wakes up with Justin Timberlake's Sean Parker in his introduction in "The Social Network"? Well, she happens to be the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, and she's apparently going places around Hollywood with the model-turned-actress now scoring roles in three upcoming film projects.
