Jamie, I couldn’t have chosen you as Christian better myself. Even though your casting was just announced, it seems like the coveted role was meant for you all along!
Jamie Dornan, your name is going to be everywhere now, since you were cast as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie on Oct. 23! Dakota Johnson, Anastasia Steele herself, even helped hand-pick you, and she didn’t get to do that with Charlie Hunnam. Your casting was totally meant to be!
Jamie Dornan Is The Perfect Choice To Play Christian Grey
Jamie, you were meant to play this role! Your career has been building up for a break like this to showcase everything that makes you the perfect choice to play Christian.
First of all, you began your career as an underwear model for Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Armani! Being comfortable while naked is essential to playing the studly part. You have the perfect body and face to play Christian, with the same chiseled abs, wavy hair and blue-gray eyes. Modeling paired with playing rugby in college equals a smokin’ hot bod that has us mesmerized already!
Playing such a huge role is also going to come with tons of pressure, but you definitely have the acting chops!
You’ve were hunky Sheriff Graham Humbert on Once Upon a Time and a serial killer on The Fall. Clearly, your sexy and sinister roles indicate that you love playing a bad boy — and Christian is the sexiest bad boy of them all!
And not only do you have the right acting resume — but you jumped at auditioning for the role!
Jamie Dornan: Dakota Johnson Helped Pick You To Play Christian Grey
Not only that — but your new co-star Dakota, 24, knew that you wanted the role, and that’s why she helped producers pick you!
“Dakota was in constant contact with producers and the studio and was very willing to help out in any way,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She was extremely hands on, no pun intended. Dakota had a pretty amazing read with Jamie.”
With Dakota on your side, your situation couldn’t be any better. I have a feeling you’re about to win over millions of other women — if you haven’t already!
What about YOU, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited that Jamie is playing Christian?
