CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Smash Pictures has cast Allie Haze and Ryan Driller as BDSM-ensconced lovers Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in its forthcoming parody of E.L. James' novel Fifty Shades Darker, the second in her blockbuster trilogy.
This will be Haze's first off-contract starring role following her split from Vivid Entertainment, announced Monday. She was nominated for Best Actress at the 2012 AVN Awards for a role she completed before becoming a Vivid Girl, in New Sensations Romance's Lost and Found. Driller is known for his portrayal of Clark Kent/Superman in Axel Braun's Superman XXX: A Porn Parody, which earned him a Best Actor nod from AVN this year.
The two were selected for the leads of Fifty Shades Darker after an open audition last Friday with producer Stuart Wall and director Jim Powers.
UPDATE - Smash Pictures announced today that adult star and current Penthouse Pet of the Month Alexis Ford has been cast as Katie, Anastasia Steele's sister.
"This has been a great day for us!" Wall said. "Our cast is getting stronger and stronger for our 50 Shades: XXX Porn Parody.”
Also, Julia Ann has been added to the cast as Elena/Mrs. Robinson, the woman who first teaches Christian about the BDSM lifestyle.
