Dakota Johnson to Host ‘SNL’ (Feb 28th)

It’s safe to assume there will be a Fifty Shades of Grey sketch or two on the next new installment of Saturday Night Live. Dakota Johnson, who plays Anastasia Steele in the sexy film, is set to host the NBC sketch show’s Feb. 28 episode. She made the announcement herself in a Q&A segment with Jerry Seinfeld during SNL’s 40th anniversary special.

Fifty Shades, the film adaptation of EL James’ erotic novel in which Johnson stars opposite Jamie Dornan, set the Valentine’s Day weekend box office on fire. Johnson has a background in comedy, having previously starred on the Fox sitcom Ben and Kate.

This will mark Johnson’s first time hosting the show, although she will be able to get plenty of pointers from her mom, actress Melanie Griffith, who hosted in 1988.
A musical guest has not yet been announced.

Last night Dakota attended the SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration at Rockefeller Plaza on February 15, 2015 in New York City.

50 Shades of Grey was first planned as TV series

Erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey was almost adapted as a TV show. The CEO of US network Starz Chris Albrecht revealed that he had asked Universal for the rights to the E. L. James novels, reported Digital Spy.

If successful, he would have adapted the novels into three seasons, one for each book. He is taking this approach with his upcoming series Outlander, which is based on a series of romantic fantasy novels by Diana Gabaldon.

If you read the Outlander book, this could only be a series. Im the guy who called up Universal and said, Ill get you three years on the air as a series – lets just do a Fifty Shades of Grey series, he said.

You dont have to worry about box office, you dont have to worry about a rating, you can tell the story the right way.

Is Dakota Johnson Benedict Cumberbatch’s new girlfriend?

According to the Daily Mail, Benedict Cumberbatch and “Fifty Shades of Grey” actress Dakota Johnson were spotted “chatting up a storm in an animated fashion as they strolled through the sunny streets of New York together, apparently deep in conversation.”

“Benedict has a girlfriend,” a source confirmed toShowBizSpypreviously. “He’s keeping it very hush-hush. But it’s safe to say he’s smitten!”

“He’s been seeing the lady in question for the past few months. She isn’t in the public eye, and has quite a serious career, so is keen to remain anonymous for as long as possible,” the source said.

But it’s unlikely Benedict Cumberbatch’s new girlfriend is Dakota Johnson. This is because the 24-year-old is dating actor Jordan Masterson. Dakota’s boyfriend even came to visit her on the “Fifty Shades of Grey” set when they were shooting in Vancouver in January! Also, Dakota is very much in the “public eye,” as the source described it, due to her big role as Anastasia Steele in “Fifty Shades.”

Dakota and Benedict both attended the Met Gala on Monday evening, which is probably where they met and quickly got along, explaining their lunch outing in NYC.

Benedict Cumberbatch, 37, has previously lamented about not being lucky in love after breaking up with his ex girlfriend Olivia Poulet, whom he met at university. They split in 2010 after 12 years together. After Poulet, the “Star Trek” actor dated London-based artist Anna James in 2011 but they separated a year later, ShowBizSpy reports.

“It is a wonderful thing to get married young and become a father. I used to think that I’d get married in my mid-30s and have children. But now I think I can wait. I’m no longer in a hurry to get married,” Benedict told Elle Japan last year.

“I would like to first get to know the partner and build a trusting relationship before making the commitment,” he added.

Dakota Johnson has been “Our Rock”

Dakota Johnsonis “our rock,”Michael De Luca, one of the hotly anticipated film’s producers, told E! News exclusively on the red carpet at the 2013 Hollywood Film Awards tonight. “She’s just so Anastasia Steele. She’s the best partner a producer could have.”

So just how much sway does the 24-year-old Johnson have, now that she’s the sole big name still definitively attached to the project afterCharlie Hunnam‘s sudden exit last week?Well, shedoesget to put the hopefuls to the testthe chemistry test, that is.

“She’s helping us look through the candidates to see which chemistry kind of captures our attention,” De Luca explained.

As for the rumors thatJamie Dornanisthefrontrunnerto replace Hunnam, the producer said that he couldn’t commentbut he says that he really thinks that the role of Christian Grey will be refilled within the next month.

“We’re looking on your website, we’re looking under rocks in Zimbabwe, in space, on the moon. We’re looking everywhere, but I think in a couple weeks it will be announced and everything will be cool,” DeLuca said.

The filmmaker also said that the film based on the eroticE.L. Jamesbestseller, to be directed bySam Taylor-Wood, is still on schedule.

“We’re on track. The release date [Aug. 1, 2014] is preserved and we’re gonna kind of keep going,” he said.

Not that losing Hunnam wasn’t a blow, though.

“Charlie, I think, is an amazing actor of his generation or any generation, and we just couldn’t make it work in the time he had to transform into Christian Grey,” De Luca lamented. “But I think if its meant to be its meant to be. I’m convinced we’ll work together again.”
