Is a leading contender for the Fifty Shades of Grey film soon going to be too busy to star in it?

Alexis Bledel has long been a fan favorite to play Anastasia Steele in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie, but her schedule might not allow her to make the movie, according to the Examiner.

Alexis has recently signed on to star in a new Fox sitcom called Friends and Family opposite Jason Ritter.

The show hasn't been picked up yet, but if it does, it might be tough for Alexis to also have time for a film right away. 

Fifty Shades would probably need to start filming soon, as the head of Universal recently said he'd like to release the film by the summer of 2014.

So would you be fit to be tied if Alexis can't play Ana? Or was she not your top choice anyway?
