What did McCormick say in response to being Anastasia Steele?
"I think I would have to let him have his own journey with that," she said.
"Fifty Shades of Grey," written by bestselling author E.L. James, tells the story of 22-year-old recent college grad Anastasia Steele, who enters into a dominant/submissive sexual relationship with 27-year old sexy billionaire Christian Grey, and both explore Christian's world of BDSM (bondage, dominance, submission, masochism).
Guzman hinted at playing the coveted role in July. In an exclusive interview with The Daily Fig, he said that he would choose to play Christian Grey if he could play any character from a book.
"I know it's a little risqué, but I'm starting to get into Fifty Shades of Grey. I'm going to start reading that one next because I'm kinda thinking I might like to go out for this Christian Grey role," Guzman revealed.
"People wanna see this movie be made so I definitely want to attach my name to it if I can."
Other stars have also hinted to want the role of the two key characters in the hotly anticipated movie.

"Pretty Little Liars" star Lucy Hale, 23, said that any involvement with the film would take her career in a different direction, and she's comfortable with that type of diversion.
