Fifty Shades of Grey Casting: Jennifer Lawrence in Lead for Anastasia?

A silver lining to being an Oscar winner with one huge franchise already under your belt is you get all the best roles.

Now, Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly the top choice of Fifty Shades of Grey producers to play Anastasia Steele in the film, according to Hollywood Life.

A source who is reportedly very close to the film production says J-Law will play Ana if producers have their druthers.

Rumors continue to circulate that Alex Pettyfer has been given the role of Christian Grey, but not about anyone being confirmed to play Anastasia as of yet.

If 22-year-old Jennifer Lawrence does end up playing the part, this would be the second beloved book series she has been entrusted with. She plays Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games films, with the second one hitting theaters this November.

Jennifer as Anastasia would certainly come as a surprise to most fans of the books, as she has not been seen as a popular candidate.

Fans have been widely divergent on who would be right for Anastasia, but leading fan favorites have included Emma Watson, Alexis Bledel, and Ashley Greene.

In a recent Wetpaint poll of who should play the part, Jennifer came in sixth. Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale led the way with 21% of the vote.

Whether the always-hilarious Jennifer would even agree to star in the film is a different matter. After her Oscar win for Silver Linings Playbook earlier this year, not to mention her recent nomination forWinter's Bone, she pretty much can pick whatever role she wants.

And something as racy as Fifty Shades of Grey might be seen as a risky move for the star.

Plus, can Jennifer even do sexy? We haven't really seen that side of her onscreen as of yet.

So are you hoping that the odds are ever in Jennifer's favor? Or do you have a bone to pick with this choice?
