The 50 Shades of Grey movie producers better start watching New Girl, because they might find their perfect Elena on the show.
Obviously Zooey Deschanel isn't the actress that they should keep their eye onÂ—she's more of an Anastasia Steele type. Instead brunette beauty Carla Gugino will be playing an Elena-like character who attempts to make Schmidt (Max Greenfield) her sex slave.
Schmidt isn't afraid of his feminine side judging from his love of expensive body care products, and he is rather obsessed with wooing women. So of course a guy like him wouldn't shy away from reading an erotic book like 50 Shades of Grey (he probably already has a few romance novels hidden under his mattress).
However, if 50 Shades was going to play into the plot of New Girl, you would think that Schmidt would try to emulate Christian Grey by purchasing a bunch of scary-looking sexy toys and transforming his boudoir into a Red Room of Pain. And obviously his plan would backfire when his nipple clamps and vagina balls scare away all his potential sex slaves.
But the New Girl writers are going a different direction. According to Screencrush, Carla Gugino has been cast as Schmidt's new boss, a "complete sex control freak" who makes Max sign a contract similar to the one that Christian Grey presents to Anastasia Steele. This makes more sense since Schmidt seems more like a submissiveÂ—he showed just how insecure he is during his relationship with Cece and when he let his boss force him to dress up as Sexy Santa at his office Christmas party.
From the sounds of it, Schmidt will soon miss his old bossÂ—nipple clamps and spankings are probably more painful than a bad case of Santa Lap, which is scratched-up thigh skin caused by drunk women in wool office wear.
It's not hard to see why Schmidt will sign up to be his new boss' sex slave, howeverÂ—Carla is a very captivating cougar. She's stripped down in Sin City; starred as a pregnant porn star in Elektra Luxx; and played a sexy superhero in Watchmen. So since she certainly has no problem with sex and violence, maybe she'd make the perfect "Mrs. Robinson" in the 50 Shades movie.
So what do you thinkÂ—could being Schmidt's dom help Carla get cast as Elena, the older woman who introduces a teenage Christian Grey to the world of BDSM?
