MAX Martini is to play Christian Grey’s bodyguard in Fifty Shades of Grey.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Martini will play Jason Taylor, the head of Christian’s security team.

The American actor joins an ever-expanding cast on the adaptation of E. L. James’ best-selling erotic novel, which is headed by Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

Eloise Mumford recently joined as Anastasia’ best friend Kate Kavanagh; Luke Grimes will play Christian’s brother, Elliot; Victor Rasuk is Anastasia’s close friend, José and Jennifer Ehle will be Anastasia’s mother, Carla.

Sam Taylor-Johnson is directing the movie, which is on course to commence shooting in early December.

Martini was most recently seen in this summer’s Pacific Rim – which ironically co-starred one-time Fifty Shades lead Charlie Hunnam – and as a SEAL commander in Captain Phillips.
