Finally! We can’t wait to see this sexy star in action.
Jamie Dornan Is Christian Grey — Actor Cast In ’50 Shades Of Grey’
E.L. sure knows how to pick ’em. We think Jamie looks absolutely perfect for the role of Christian! His chiseled abs and piercing blue eyes are definitely enough to make us weak in the knees.
Jamie, who has modeled for Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Armani, is no stranger to the screen. He played Sheriff Graham Humbert in ABC’s Once Upon a Time and currently plays a serial killer on popular Irish show The Fall. He also starred opposite Kirsten Dunst in Sofia Coppola‘s Marie Antoinette.
It will definitely be interesting to see him bring the the sadomasochistic billionaire to life on the big screen. His chemistry with actress Dakota Johnson, who is signed on to play Anastasia Steele, must be off-the-charts!
How about YOU, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Jamie will make a good Christian Grey? Let us know.
