From The Wrap:

He’ll play author Boyce Fox, who works alongside Dakota Johnson‘s Anastasia Steele

“Teen Wolf” star Tyler Hoechlin has been cast as Boyce Fox in “Fifty Shades Darker,” the sequel to “Fifty Shades of Grey,” TheWrap has exclusively learned.

James Foley is directing the “Fifty Shades” sequels for Universal Pictures. Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti are producing with Marcus Viscidi and author E.L. James, whose husband, Niall Leonard, adapted both books.

The sequels find Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan reprising their respective roles as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.

They’ll be joined by returning co-stars Luke Grimes, Eloise Mumford, Victor Rasuk, Rita Ora, Max Martini and Marcia Gay Harden, as well as franchise newcomers Kim Basinger, Bella Heathcote, Eric Johnson, Fay Masterson and Robinne Lee. Additionally, Arielle Kebbel and Brant Daugherty will co-star in “Fifty Shades Freed,” though it’s unclear whether Hoechlin will appear in the franchise finale.

The character of Boyce Fox is referenced in the “Fifty Shades” books, though he does not technically make an appearance in the narrative. The character will be fleshed out in the “Fifty Shades Darker” movie, as Boyce Fox is the first author who Ana signs as an editor at publishing company SIP.

New Interview of Dakota with Gonzoo

Interview translated by Us.

Dakota Johnson laughs at herself and her erotic image in this comedy -"How to be Single- based on the book with the same title written by Liz Tuccillo. Proud of her character in Grey, Dakota admits that is not ashamed of having starred in the erotic saga. "I feel very proud of Fifty Shades of Grey and do not need to put distance from it. The more I work, the more doors are open and I have access to the public ', recognized in the hotel room where we are in Los Angeles.

Determined, sparing in words and with many panels in an industry where already succeeded her parents, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, Dakota is revealed as the sensation of the moment in Hollywood.

GONZOO: Do you think that young people today are less conventional than in the past?
DAKOTA JOHNSON: Yes, I think so. Women now have more opportunities to be independent, are more accepted in an egalitarian society, but I would encourage the idea that more needs to be done. I hope that someday women can say and do what they feel in complete freedom.

G: How do you proclaim your own independence?
Dakota: I do not like lecturing, I just express myself through my work. If I meet someone in my family or a friend who needs me, I give my advice to encourage them, but my recommendation reach only that point.

G: Are you good at making sexual jokes like in the movie?
Dakota: In the film this aspect is amplified for comic effect, but certainly I will not doing sex pictures of myself and then hang them on the internet to my friends. This is a ridiculous comedy and we had to create that appearance of a totally crazy way.

G: Are you having fun shooting that kind of situation?
Dakota: It's super fun. This film was one of my best professional experiences. I was surrounded by actresses with a spectacular comic ability, bright, strong actresses who inspired me to shaping my character.

New Interview of Dakota with AOL

Dakota Johnson's idea of a good time: reading. Alone. In the tub. That idea would be anathema to Alice, the co-dependant suddenly-solo Manhattan dweller she plays in "How To Be Single," opening Friday. The comedy deals with the travails of dating and co-stars Alison Brie as Lucy, who embarks on an often-desperate, frequently ill-advised and always amusing quest to find the perfect man. Johnson's Alice, meanwhile, adrift in the big city, is befriended by Robin (Rebel Wilson), who hooks up, drinks up, and still sort-of makes it to work sort-of on time.

"The things that she does are not things that I do," says Johnson of Alice. "It's fun to think about going out and partying and having different relationships with people. I've been in long term relationships mostly so I'm more used to that." Johnson, the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, has emerged as a fashion icon (those red lips!) and critically respected actress; she headlined the erotic thriller "Fifty Shades of Grey," opposite Jamie Dornan. Of course, being famous means talking about herself ad nauseum, something that doesn't come naturally to Johnson. "I don't know who I am anymore," she jokes, after a day of interviews. "It's definitely not easy. It's always weird to talk over and over about the same thing. I feel crazy but the other person doesn't. So I feel like a psycho."

Unlike Alice, who can't fathom a life without being tethered to another person -- be it her drinking buddy, her sex buddy, or her sister (played by Leslie Mann) -- Johnson loves her solitude. She hangs out with friends who are low-key like her and basically tries to be a couch potato."I just love being alone. I cherish my solitude sometimes. I like it. I like to be able to do whatever I want with my brain. If I feel like taking a bath and painting my nails, that's OK. I don't know how I got there. I also understand the desire to have someone there and feel loved," she says. Next up for Johnson: reprising her role as Anastasia Steele in "Fifty Shades Darker." What can she say about it? Not much. "It is under duper lock and key. I don't even know anything. Just kidding. I know everything but can't tell you," she says.

Johnson appears regularly on magazine covers, but isn't often seen on the red carpet circuit, save for major events. Losing her anonymity, and making peace with that, has been a work in progress for the actress, who doesn't bark out sound byte after byte in interviews, but takes her time giving more thoughtful answers. "It's kind of wild. Sometimes things can get a little scary. It can feel very invasive. I feel vulnerable. But then I think about the jobs I'm able to do and I just feel pretty grateful," she says. "I always knew that I wanted to make movies. I grew up on set. Earlier today I was like, I don't have a backup career choice. What if I felt like I didn't want to do this anymore? I don't have any other talents. I can cook. I can bake. But not under pressure."

Still, don't let her relaxed demeanor fool you. This woman knows what she wants, and goes after it. "I'm fairly ambitious. I'm at an age that I'm discovering patterns of mine. I can really win in the procrastination department when it comes to accomplishing things. There are times when I'm more ambitious and can take things on," she says. The biggest take-away for her, after filming "Single"? Alice and Dakota are two very separate beings. "I am not a party animal. We shot a lot of the exterior night scenes, at night. We were on nights for a month and it was really hard. It's not easy to do that," she says.
