And you thought he looked good on a motorcycle. Charlie Hunnam pretty much looks like the perfect specimen of a man on the new cover of ‘Entertainment Weekly’ as King Arthur, the star of next summer’s block buster. Swoon!
It’s no secret that King Arthur is going to blow our minds, especially with Charlie Hunnam looking like that. Even if you can’t get behind the medieval times storyline, I’m pretty sure you’ll find a reason to watch. It could be Charlie’s blue eyes on this new mag cover, or his tan, or his muscles, or his perfect jaw line. Take your pick!
“I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland,” Guy Ritchie told EW in the new interview about King Arthur. “The two qualities make rather compatible bed companions. Unfortunately, they’re not interesting to watch. Luke Skywalker was always the most uninteresting character in Star Wars because he’s the good guy. Good guys are boring.”
Luckily, Charlie is not boring, like at all. And neither is this King Arthur — he was raised by prostitutes and “street-wise hood,” as the magazine puts it. “He’s a little bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler,” Charlie added. “He’s a street kid. There’s definitely a harder edge to him than people would imagine. It’s sort of classic Guy Ritchie stuff.”
Well, we like the edge — and Charlie, it looks good on you. We were obviously not too happy when Charlie dropped out of Fifty Shades of Grey, but we saw quite a bit of his body during the seven seasons of Sons of Anarchy, and with this next role, we’re looking forward to see him off the bike and into royalty.
Are you loving this look, HollywoodLifers?
