Potential Christian Grey alert! Jamie, who made us swoon in ‘Once Upon A Time,’ is reportedly a frontrunner to replace Charlie! What do you think of this, HollywoodLifers?
Jamie Dornan, 31, is no stranger to playing a studly hunk, since he was the Huntsman in “Once Upon A Time.” Looks like Hollywood may have found the right guy to fill Christian Grey‘s sexy shoes!
Jamie Dornan Could Be A Possible Replacement For Charlie Hunnam
Re-casting the role of Christian after Charlie Hunnam dropped out may take some time. However, we’re not disappointed checking out the parade of eye candy that’s reportedly being considered for the role!
Jamie is a possible replacement for Charlie, 33, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The actor currently plays a serial killer on the UK show “The Fall,” but we have no doubt that he would make a seamless transfer to the big screen.
With his chiseled abs and instense eyes, we can picture the sexy Irish actor — and former Calvin Klein underwear model — as Christian perfectly!
Robert Pattinson Doesn’t Want To Play Christian Grey
If you were dead-set on Robert Pattinson playing Christian Grey, it’d be good to root for another contender, like Jamie.
“Rob is not going to change his mind for doing the film, he doesn’t want to commit to multiple films and another franchise,” a source close to the Twilight star told HollywoodLIfe.com exclusively. ”He wants his career to go in a completely different route. Add that to the fact that he is not the number one pick from the producers, its just not happening.”
It’s a little surprising to us that Rob, 27, wasn’t the first pick, since we know he was who author E.L. James wanted for the role. However, the producer’s first pick, Charlie, didn’t want to be the next RPatz, either.
“He dropped out of the project because he didn’t want to be typecast. He didn’t want the Robert Pattinson-esque attention that would come along with taking on this role,” a source told People.
It’s a bummer that Charlie and Robert aren’t filling the role — but we’d be so excited if Jamie did!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Would you be excited if Jamie was cast as Christian? Let us know!
