ARROW's Dylan Neal Boards FIFTY SHADES OF GREY

ARROW's Dylan Neal is the latest addition to the film adaptation of FIFTY SHADES OF GREY.

According to E! Online, the actor will take on the role of "Bob, Anastasia Steele's (Dakota Johnson) stepfather and husband to her mother Carla (Jennifer Ehle)."

Universal Pictures and Focus Features recently announced that they will delay the opening of Sam Taylor-Johnson's adaptation of EL James' racy best-seller FIFTY SHADES OF GREY from its original August 1, 2014 release date to February 13, 2015.

The film has come up against obstacles in recent months including the re-casting of the lead role of Christian Grey. The film's original star, SONS OF ANARCHY's Charlie Hunnam, dropped out for personal reasons. Jamie Dornan will now take his place opposite Dakota Johnson, set to play Anastasia Steele. True Blood star Luke Grimes will portray Elliot Grey, the brother of Christian, while Eloise Mumford will play Anastasia's roommate and Rita Ora will play Grey's adopted sister sister. Yesterday, it was announced Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden had signed on to play Grey's mother.

Filming on FIFTY SHADES earlier this week.

Neal is currently filming the sophomore season of The CW's ARROW, as well as Hallmark's CEDAR COVE, opposite Andie McDowell. He's also appeared on BLOOD TIES, BONES, and DAWSON'S CREEK.
