Dakota Johnson’s Comedic Debut(s)

The Five-Year Engagement is the latest offering from the ever-expanding Jason Segel-NBC comedy crew. Segel himself co-wrote the script with director Nicholas Stoller and stars alongside Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, Mindy Kaling, Kevin Hart, and Chris Parnell—a promising line-up of familiar faces. A lesser known face, however, is that of Dakota Johnson, who plays the energetic, aggressive, and generally absurd Audrey. We’re enjoying tracing Dakota’s steady career-rise; in spite of her famous family*, Dakota is moving up the acting ladder the old fashioned way; myriad small (and often unflattering) roles in increasingly bigger films. So far, Johnson’s played Justin Timberlake’s Stanford bed-buddy in The Social Network, a catty cop in 21 Jump Street, and has dipped her toes into the indie-film pool with 2012 Sundance film For Ellen with Paul Dano and Jena Malone. We called Dakota to talk about martial arts, vigorous on-screen sex, her new TV pilot, and Christopher Walken.

*Dakota’s parents are Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. Her grandmother is Hitchcock favorite Tippi Hedren.

EMMA BROWN: I saw The Five-Year Engagement last night. You seem to be popping up in a lot of films recently, how did you get involved in that one?

DAKOTA JOHNSON: The casting director called me in to read with Jason [Segel], and then a week later I got the part.

Dakota Johnson books trio of roles

Dakota Johnson is about to have a busy year ahead — the “Social Network” thesp just booked three roles.

Johnson, the 22-year-old daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, has signed on to “Goats” starring David Duchonvy and Vera Farmiga; Universal’s “Five Year Engagement”; and Sony’s “21 Jump Street.”

She is currently shooting “Goats,” will jump right into “Five Year Engagement” when she’s through, and will follow that up with “21 Jump Street” this summer.

Christopher Neil will helm “Goats,” which tells the story of a 15-year-old leaving his home in the foothills of Tuscon for his freshman year at an East Coast prep school.

“Five Year Engagement” stars Jason Segel and follows the ups and downs of a recently engaged couple. Nicholas Stoller is directing with Judd Apatow and Rodney Rothman producing.

“21 Jump Street” stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill and is a remake of the 1987 Fox series that starred Johnny Depp. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing.

Johnson was most recently seen in CBS Films “Beastly” and Sony’s “The Social Network” as the Stanford girl who sleeps with Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake) without realizing who he is.
