The "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie melee continues at an astounding rate. Since the announcement of a casting call for the lead parts, fans have been nothing short of hyper. In fact, a new contender making rounds on the web for the role of Anastasia Steele is "Juno" star, Ellen Page.

With the film only a year before it finally hits cinemas nationwide, fans are desperate to find out who among Hollywood's hottest and finest stars would nab the lead roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Yet, there is a catch with the casting call announced.

The Inquistr reported that "unknown" actors would likely be considered for the part. Aside from that, producers posted specifications for the role of Ana and Christian. To be considered for the role of Christian Grey, one must be extremely good-looking, sexy, confident and between the ages of 25 to 33. As for the part of Anastasia Steele, one must be Caucasian, very beautiful between the ages of 20 to 25.

However, this has not stopped fans from rooting for 26-year old actress, Ellen Page. Page considerably has the right complexion and acting chops for the part but given her age she won't likely be given a chance.

Ellen Page's age isn't the only issue with regards to getting cast. Page has starred in quite a few films that have garnered quite the attention such as playing the pregnant teenager on "Juno" to Alexander Skarsgard's onscreen lover in "The East."

Still, would producers and E.L. James consider Elllen Page if she'd audition for the coveted part of Anastasia Steele? Check out the slideshow to see more of Ellen Page.
