Another day, another "50 Shades of Grey" casting rumor. By now, casting contention has gotten so rigorous that dreaming about potential Christian and Anastasia combos feels like a full time job. Diehards eat, sleep and breath "50 Shades." It's exhausting. Although it may feel like E. L. James and director Sam Taylor-Johnson are approaching a decision, there's no end in sight. Although fan polls, mock trailers and wild speculation are essential to keeping rabid fans at bay. Day dreams help ail the woes of their desperation. In attempt to not drive the Christian and Ana discussion into the ground, we're going to keep things fresh and look into some of the less prestigious but equally as important characters.

Jose Rodriguez is Ana's close friend who she meets during her lonely freshman year at WSUV. They both identify as "kindered spirits" whose fathers both served in the same Army unit. They become fast, lifelong friends.

Jose is the first of his family to attend college. Although he majors in engineering, he has a passion for photography and primarily shoots landscapes and participates on a photo shoot with Christian Grey. He's good-looking, funny, nice, smart and conventional. Christian sees him as casually but immaculately dressed. So who could potentially fit the bill? Let's take a look.

First up with have "Struck By Lightning" star Roberto Aguire. He's got the look. He's got the charm. What's not to love?

Next we have Jesse Metcalfe. He too has the conventional good looks that are perfect for the role.

Now we turn to Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Rumors first hinted that he may be up to play Christian, but they have since crashed and burned. So why not put him up to play Jose?

At number four is Gael Garcia Bernal. He may be a bit too old for the role, but he's such a talented actor that fans could easily look past this minor fault. His accent would only add to the character and he's certainly one who could pull off the immaculately dressed look.

And last but not least, there's Michael Trevino. He won the Ozzie for his work in 90210 and would be the perfect fit for the "50 Shades of Grey" film adaptation.
