Fans have been dream-casting their top picks for who should star in the erotic 50 Shades of Grey movie for a while — and now Blake Lively’s (Serena) name is being thrown into the mix, as well!

The Gossip Girl star isn’t in the running for main character Anastasia Steele, though. Instead, Celebuzz is writing that fans think she’d be perfect for the role of Anastasia’s best friend, Kate Kavanagh.

Described as in the books as a “gorgeous” green eyed journalist with strawberry blonde hair, Kate is straightforward, blunt, and not afraid to tell Ana when she thinks her S&M relationship with billionaire Christian Grey has gone too far.

So what does Blake think about the fan push to get her cast in the film? Turns out, she hasn’t even heard of the book series at all.

“I haven’t. What’s that?” Blake told Celebuzz on June 16 during an event for her new film, Savages.

It’s okay, B. We know you’re busy starring in movies with Taylor Kitsch and playing house with your superhot boyfriend. There’s probably not a whole lot of time left over to sit around and read. That said, how would YOU feel about seeing Blake in the role?
