In the midst of the buzz over who will be the next (and hopefully last) Christian Grey, another sexy prospect has emerged. We love what we see! Do you?

Ever since Charlie Hunnam, 33, dropped out of Fifty Shades of Grey on Oct. 12, rumors have been swirling about who will replace the hunk in the sought-after role of Christian Grey. Many fans are going back to rooting for the actors they originally wanted as their Christian Grey, including Matt Bomer, 36, and Ian Somerhalder, 34. But now a new sexy star, Christian Cooke, has joined in the race!

Christian Cooke As Christian Grey? — Sexy Actor Rumored To Be ’50 Shades’ Lead

We recently learned that a newcomer will most likely be cast in the film alongside Dakota Johnson, 24, and E! News reports that Christian is the latest contender.

The English actor has previously starred in the British television series Trinity and the STARZ original series Magic City, and appeared in the 2013 version of Romeo and Juliet.

We think the 26-year-old actor has the smoldering looks necessary to seduce the young Anastasia, and we’re sure his sex appeal will transfer to the big screen.

Jamie Dornan Could Be Cast As Christian Grey

While we let our fascination with Christian Cooke simmer, we can also play with the possibility of another hunk, Jamie Dornan, 31, being cast as Christian Grey.

Jamie is a sexy Irish actor — and former Calvin Klein underwear model — who currently plays a serial killer on the UK show The Fall. 

We love all of our options for the new Christian Grey, but the suspense is killing us!

How about YOU, HollywoodLifers? Would you like to see Christian Cooke play Christian Grey? Let us know!
