After Charlie dropped out of the ’50 Shades of Grey’ movie, some fans were excited that a new hunk will be chosen to play Christian Grey! No fan base seemed to be more excited than Matt’s, though, when they made it known that they desperately want him in the sexy role! Do you agree, HollywoodLifers?

Sometimes, fans get what they wish for! If you weren’t satisfied with the original casting choice of Charlie Hunnam for Christian Grey, the 50 Shades Of Grey gods took note! It’s exciting that a new actor will be cast in the movie  — and Matt Bomer‘s fans immediately took to Twitter, petitioning him for the role again. Keep reading to see what they wrote!

Matt Bomer’s Fans Want Him To Play Christian Grey

The resounding answer on Twitter for a new Christian is Matt, 36! What did fans have to say about the White Collar star filling Christian’s sexy shoes?

Wow, we love the outpouring of love from Matt’s fans — and this isn’t the first time they petitioned him for the role of Christian! With his ridiculously sexy looks and hard-as-a-rock abs, we totally agree that he’d be a great choice!

But what was it that led Charlie, 33, to drop out of the coveted role?

Charlie Hunnam Dropped Out Of ’50 Shades Of Grey’

Did the pressure of playing one of the most-loved characters in recent history get to Charlie?

After it was announced on Oct. 12 that he would no longer be playing Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively the REAL reason he had a change of heart.

Universal Pictures attributed the shocking news in a statement to Charlie’s “immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey.”

But an industry source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that that’s all just smoke and mirrors. “Charlie got cold feet,” the source plainly states. “He wanted to get out of the movie because he was feeling like it would be his version of Showgirls and he didn’t want to be remembered for that.”

There were a few other factors that contributed to Charlie and the filmmakers’ decision to part ways. “Nor is Charlie ready for the celebrity he would receive if the movie worked out,” the source revealed.

Well, we’d like to think that everything happens for a reason! Since Charlie didn’t work out for the sizzling role, we can only hope for a new gorgeous face and set of abs to play Christian Grey — and Matt’s fans have definitely spoken!

Dakota Johnson, cast as Anastasia Steele, is bound to be a lucky lady no matter what!

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you want Matt to be cast as Christian Grey? Sound off!

Matt Bomer is by far the best visual example of what Christian Grey represented. I’m confused about the other candidates…oh well

I truly loved the Fifty Shades of Grey books. I got so excited when I heard about some of the actors and actresses that were lined up to be considered for the parts of Christian Grey & for Anastasia Steele parts. If you really read all three books then you too would agree that these two parts had to go to two very special actors that you can see that they automatically look like they have chemistry when you automatically look at them. I personally, don’t feel like Dakota Johnson is the right fit for the main female lead (looks too innocent and really has no acting experience also, and I believe she is not as attractive as the book describes the main female part that’s in the books. I mostly think that the part should go to Amelia Clarke (from Game of Thrones), and the male lead should either go to Henry Cavill or Luke Bracey. I really look forward to seeing who the new cast members will be. Please choose actors that really have the perfect chemistry together, not over mid 30’s, and really do have better acting skills, and are serious about accepting these two main parts. Thanks for letting me share.

I AGREE! Matt Bomer is sooo the perfect choice for this part. After viewing the trailers, I believe he has the acting skills and the depth to play the complicating personality that is Christian Grey. He is incredibly sexy, talented and by far the best choice!

I would love to see Matt Bomer as Christian Grey, but sadly I dont think he would want all the media intrusion either. They would go on about him being gay…blah..blah…blah, and not look at him first and foremost as an actor. What the hell does sexuality have to do with anything? Charlie Hunnam played a gay man in ‘queer as folk’ and I bet nobody said he couldnt play a gay role because he is “straight”. I cant think of another actor that could play this part….definately NOT Ryan gosling or Rob Patt. Matt will always be my Mr Grey whether he gets the part or not!

I think all the gay comments are nothing but ignorance. First of all its called ACTING it has nothing to do with sexual orientation. He is a actor first and foremost so the fact that he is gay should not even matter. I don’t think him being gay would affect his acting I think everyone is looking at that aspect and its really stupid and immature. Its about whose right for the role the author vividly described Christian Grey and that was not Charlie even though I think he would’ve done a great job acting wise physically he’s not Christian. Everyone is getting to personally involved in this if you don’t like who they cast don’t watch the movie but saying that Matt shouldn’t and can’t play the role of a straight male is ignorant and closed minded. In case you haven’t noticed he has played the role of a straight male all his life and did a damn good job at it because up into the past year you never even knew he was gay until he said it. So with that being said HOW’S THAT FOR ACTING.

Personally, I think it is a great loss for EL JAMES to loose Charlie Hunnam for this role. I have read the book and Charlie Hunnam is the perfect choice for Christian Grey. There is no other perfect match other than him. Charlie Hunnam is everything those books described. Sorry you left Charlie, you would have been great.

I really don’t get how any girl can get turned on by a gay man. I am sorry, and I love gay people, but I immediately see gay guys as other girls. It’s a HUGE turn off knowing the actor would in reality be totally grossed out at the sight of a vagina, and would never desire to touch a woman. I can only guess that all these little teenage virginal girls want him because he is nonthreatening and they have never been touched by a real man before. This role needs a real dominant, masculine, straight, woman loving man. It is basically porn and having a guy who gets secretly grossed out at the thought of vagina is a major turn off.

I totally agree with your comment, I cannot see how this role that required a sexy, hot and dominant man can be played by a gay person. I do not think there will be any interest at all because the fact remains that the person will be faking it. That will kill the suspense right there. Sorry to say but this will not flow. You need a man like Charlie Hunnam for this role to hold its ground. Charlie Hunnam would be natural at this.

There are plenty of gay men that a very masculine not all gay men are feminine so you can’t say that. And I’m speaking from having several gay men as friends gay men are not grossed out by vagina’s or would not desire to touch a woman I have been groped by plenty of gay men in reality they actually love women whether they’re feminine or not. Just an FYI.

Sorry, but I hope the author goes on her OWN instincts with whom should play Christian Grey. I didn’t know what to think of Charlie at first, but quickly came to the conclusion that the author picked him for a reason, and was SO excited. Sorry, but I’m probably the loner who hopes it’s NOT Matt Bomer. I don’t see Christian Grey in him at ALL. From the color of his hair, to his lack of dominance. I truly think it should be an unknown, someone who we don’t see other characters when he’s playing the part. He must be his own person. He MUST BE Christian Grey. Whatever her decision, respect it. After all, she knows him more then ANY of us EVER will. And please……don’t bring down the poor actor who she chooses. How dare you. Without her, he wouldn’t even exist . And if it turnes out to be Matt Bomer, then so be it.

What year is this? 1953? An actor acts. What does his sexual ordination have to do with anything? Let go of your homophobia. Shame on you!
