“Trophy Wife” star Marcia Gay Harden
is trading in Dr. Diane Buckley’s stethoscope for, well … Dr. Grace
Trevelyan Grey’s stethoscope. Harden has been cast as the mother to
Christian (Jamie Dornan), Mia (Rita Ora) and Elliot Grey (Luke Grimes) in the upcoming “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, reports THR.
In the novels, Grace is the adoptive mother of Christian. She’s the pediatrician who treated him after his mother committed suicide when he was four years old. She has a long-time friend, Elena Lincoln, who plays a pivotal role in Christian’s adolescence.
Harden not only stars on “Trophy Wife,” but was also seen in this past summer’s season of HBO’s “The Newsroom.” She can next been seen on the silver screen in “Elsa & Fred,” a family comedy starring Shirley MacLaine, Christopher Plummer and James Brolin.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is slated for a Feb. 14, 2015 release.
