Well, this afternoon (Halloween) E L James retweeted a Deadline article that Victor Rasuk will play Jose in Fifty Shades of Grey The Movie. I’m assuming this is as official as it’s going to get.
Victor was born in New York City on January 15, 1984 to Dominican parents and he’s 5’7″ – a good height compared to Jamie Dornan’s 5’11”.
Victor started acting at age 14, and had his first film role at 16 in Five Feet High and Rising. That film was later extended from its original 30 minutes with Raising Victor Vargas, a role that he was nominated for Independent Spirit Award.
Where else might you have seen him? He played Dr. Ryan Sanchez on season 15 of er. I can’t picture him, but he did eat a patients Jello-O on the show. He was also in the HBO series How to Make It In America. A more recent role was Bill Fernandez in JOBS, a movie I’ve been curious to see.
Well I have to say, he’s not quite Taylor Lautner, but I think I can embrace him as Jose.
