RISING star Victor Rasuk (inset) has been cast as Jamie Dornan's love rival in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey film.

Rasuk will play aspiring photographer Jose Rodriguez in the film. In EL James's saucy novel, Jose is a classmate and close friend of protagonist Anastasia Steele.

Jose is keen to take their relationship to the next level, but finds himself competing for her affections with billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan).

Ex Calvin Klein underwear model and County Down native, Dornan, signed a million euro deal to play Christian Grey after Charlie Hunnam walked away from the part.

Film bosses have taken a risk choosing relatively unknown actor Rasuk for the steamy sexscapade.

But the 29-year-old has been slowly and steadily building up his acting portfolio over the past few years.

His most recent role was alongside Ashton Kutcher in Jobs; Rasuk played Bill Fernandez, an early colleague of Steve Jobs, in the biopic of the Apple company founder.

He has also appeared in the Steven Soderbergh directed movie Che.
