Johnson proud of Dakota's 50 Shades

Don Johnson has said that his daughter Dakota will be "spectacular" in the Fifty Shades Of Grey film.

The Miami Vice star said the 24-year-old - his daughter with ex Melanie Griffith - would do the role of Anastasia Steele justice.

"This is the family business. This is what we do, and I am absolutely certain that Dakota will take a piece of material and a character which a lot of people might imagine could be inappropriate in some ways and turn it into something spectacular," he told Good Morning Britain.

Dakota stars opposite The Fall's Jamie Dornan, who has been cast as kinky billionaire Christian Grey in the big-screen adaptation of EL James' erotic novel.

"Speaking like a proud father and a seasoned professional, I can tell you that she is a gifted, gifted actress and this will just be one part in a long line of tremendous performances in her career," Don continued.

However, the 64-year-old admitted he has no intentions of watching the movie.

He told the Telegraph: "I probably will not see it just because it's not a movie I would see. I've never seen The Vampire Diaries, I've never seen Twilight. It's in a category of films that I just wouldn't be interested in."
