Sometimes, fans get what they wish for! If you weren’t satisfied with the original casting choice of Charlie Hunnam for Christian Grey, the 50 Shades Of Grey gods took note!

The resounding answer on Twitter for a new Christian is Matt, 36! What did fans have to say about the White Collar star filling Christian’s sexy shoes?

Wow, we love the outpouring of love from Matt’s fans — and this isn’t the first time they petitioned him for the role of Christian! With his ridiculously sexy looks and hard-as-a-rock abs, we totally agree that he’d be a great choice!

But what was it that led Charlie, 33, to drop out of the coveted role?

Did the pressure of playing one of the most-loved characters in recent history get to Charlie?

After it was announced on Oct. 12 that he would no longer be playing Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, a source told exclusively the REAL reason he had a change of heart.

Universal Pictures attributed the shocking news in a statement to Charlie’s “immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey.”

But an industry source told exclusively that that’s all just smoke and mirrors. “Charlie got cold feet,” the source plainly states. “He wanted to get out of the movie because he was feeling like it would be his version of Showgirls and he didn’t want to be remembered for that.”

There were a few other factors that contributed to Charlie and the filmmakers’ decision to part ways. “Nor is Charlie ready for the celebrity he would receive if the movie worked out,” the source revealed.

Well, we’d like to think that everything happens for a reason! Since Charlie didn’t work out for the sizzling role, we can only hope for a new gorgeous face and set of abs to play Christian Grey — and Matt’s fans have definitely spoken!

Dakota Johnson, cast as Anastasia Steele, is bound to be a lucky lady no matter what!

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you want Matt to be cast as Christian Grey? Sound off!
