    The Fifty Shades of Grey casting news keeps rolling in!

    E! News confirms that actor Dylan Neal is the latest addition to E.L. James' erotica adaptation, taking on the role of Bob, Anastasia Steele's (Dakota Johnson) stepfather and husband to her mother Carla (Jennifer Ehle).

    The 44-year-old celeb, who currently stars in Hallmark Channel's Cedar Cove opposite Andie MacDowell and is also shooting the second season of The CW's Arrow as the villainous Dr. Anthony Ivo, will join Johnson and Mr. Christian Grey himself, Jamie Dornan, in Vancouver this week to begin shooting.

    Just yesterday, the studio announced that Marcia Gay Harden has joined the cast as Christian Grey's adoptive mother, Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey. And just before that, fans were greeted with the news that Brit singer Rita Ora would be showing off her acting skills as Christian's sister, Mia.

    These stars join Luke Grimes as Elliot Grey, Eloise Mumford as Anastasia's best friend Kate Kavanagh, Victor Rasuk as Anastasia's close friend Jose and Max Martini as Grey's bodyguard.

    Filming for the highly anticipated S&M flick has already commenced in Vancouver, Canada, and fans even got their first glimpse of the book being brought to life when Dornan and Johnson were snapped on set shooting their café scene in the city's GasTown District.

    However, as excited as we all are to see how this project turns out on the big screen, there's still a long wait ahead. Fifty Shades of Grey won't hit theaters until Feb. 13, 2015.
