Speculation for an official cast continues for "Fifty Shades of Grey." Since the announcement of Sam Taylor-Johnson joining the production team as the director, fans have been expressing their own ideas of potential stars for the lead roles non-stop on the web. The latest brunette beauty to join the bandwagon of suitable stars for the role of Anastasia Steele is "Mad Men's" Jessica Pare.

British native, Sam Taylor-Johnson has officially signed on with Universal Studios and Focus Features as the director of "Fifty Shades of Grey." Finally, with a director on board it only means that a cast will be announced soon enough. Of course, the lead roles are tough to fill out and it would be a disaster for fans if the production studio got the casting wrong.

As of late, dozens of stars have been linked to the lead roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Leading countless web polls for the role of Grey is Ian Somerhalder of "The Vampire Diaries." Other notable favourites include "Man of Steel" Henry Cavill and "White Collar" Matt Bomer.

On the other hand, quite a lot of gorgeous women in Hollywood have been eyed for the role of Anastasia Steele. Emilia Clarke and Alexis Bledel may be the strongest contenders for the role but that doesn't mean other favourites haven't been chosen.

In fact, Mila Kunis, who had outright claimed she wanted nothing to do with the film, is once again a returning favourite for the role. Kunis is joined by another newly eyed star, Jessica Pare of "Mad Men." The Canadian native has played the role of a second wife, Megan, in "Mad Men" where she had to be paired up with a sex control freak. Given Pare's role on screen, it would be easy for her to act out Anastasia Steele.

Yet, Pare's age may be a bit of a problem. Jessica is currently 32 years of age whereas the character she is up to portray is only 21 years of age. Well, there's nothing make-up can't do. Check out the slideshow to see more of this "Mad Men" star eyed for the role of Anastasia Steele.
