Break out the handcuffs! Jamie Dornan will play Christian Grey in 50 Shades of Grey

10.23.2013

Someone here cares about the adaptation of FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, right?

Someone? Anyone?

If I've aroused your interest, then you may be happy to hear that they have found a replacement for Charlie Hunnam who dropped out of playing Christian Grey. He said it was due to family reasons and prepping for Guillermo del Toro's CRIMSON PEAK, I say this happened:

Jamie Dornan will now play the "breathtaking" (not my words) corporate male secretly into BDSM. So basically this is the guy who will be giving Don Johnson's daughter spankings. Not that it's a bad gig, but have you read FIFTY SHADES OF GREY? Just reading the Wiki descriptions of the characters gives me a headache.

Dornan played Axel Von Fersen in Sofia Coppola's MARIE ANTOINETTE, and you can currently catch him in the ABC series ONCE UPON A TIME. He also dated Keira Knightley, spent time as a musician, and modeled a bit. He's a man of many talents.

Sam Taylor-Johnson (NOWHERE BOY) is still on to direct the erotic drama.

'The Fall' Shows His Acting Skills

Jamie Dornan was incredible in the Britsh TV series 'The Fall' with Gillian Anderson. He may actually increase the chances of FSOG not being totally pukeworthy.

I don't know who this guy is, but the name's familiar. Thank goodness some kind soul is willing to sacrifice his dignity for this so that no one else has to. Cue the lip biting, blushing, eye rolling, and constant uttering "holy crap." I'm still banking on this never making it to production, at least that's what I'm hoping for.

If the script is as well written as the book, then everyone attached to this project is in big trouble

I like to look on the positive side...

...and be thankful that in 10 years nobody will remember that this ever happened. Kind of like Wild Orchid.

A shame that many careers will be sacrificed in this futile endeavour, but probably nobody whose talent will be missed.

Cue a "sharp intake of breath". Man, the prose in that book is purpler than Barney the Dinosaur.

Good luck to him

I liked him in ONCE UPON A TIME. I suspect this will be career suicide of one form or another but I hope he can get past this.

Charlie Hunnam still made the right move. He's much MUCH better than this material.

Originally I thought it was a good thing for Hunnam, more exposure, then i read a little bit about 50 shades of grey and thought about taylor kitsch, who looks like he just jumped into stuff to get his star up and battleship and John Carter (which I enjoyed) weren't great movies and will probably hurt him and I dont want that to happen to Hunnam, still wanna see him in a DC comic role

Out of curiosity, did you happen to see him on the short-lived Judd Apatow comedy Undeclared? No reason for asking, but I watched the entire series on Netflix and he was quite funny in it. I noticed his name in the credits right away and it immediately drew my attention. The show is hilarious too.
