After actor Charlie Hunnam bid farewell to the much-anticipated role of Christian Grey for the Fifty Shades Of Grey Movie expected to release next year, there was a desperate search to find a replacement for him. The wait is over!
After a hot and steamy screen-test with Dakota Johnson, Irish actor Jamie Dornan has landed the part of Christian Grey in “Fifty Shades of Grey,” is what we are told.
Dornan was among a handful of young heartthrobs to read for the role late last week, a source shared. His main competition appears to have been up-and-coming Australian actor Luke Bracey, who stars in Max Landis’ directorial debut “Me Him Her.”
Dubbed “the Golden Torso” by the New York Times in 2006, 31 year-old Dornan is a good physical match for 28 year-old Grey, and being a relative unknown may end up helping the public accept the actor in the role of the kinky billionaire, who millions of readers imaged differently. The imagination is a powerful thing, and an audience with no pre-conceived notions of the actor playing Grey could tailor their own fantasizes to Dornan’s relatively mysterious cinematic identity.
Universal was under pressure to begin production Nov. 1 on the high-profile project in order to meet an Aug. 1, 2014, release date. If Dornan’s deal closes, he will be signed for three and possibly four Fifty Shades movies based on the erotic book, assuming the first film is successful. -(some info. via thewrap)
