According to reports, a replacement has been found in the form of Irish actor Jamie Dornan. Dornan was screen tested alongside Dakota Johnson who is set to play Anastasia Steele in the adaptation last week.
The actor is best known for his roles in ABC series Once Upon A Time and BBC drama The Fall. Dornan has also modeled underwear for Calvin Klein, so we don’t think he will have any worries about stripping off for the role!
Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the film two weeks ago due to commitments to his TV show Sons of Anarchy. But this hasn’t stopped reports circulating that he felt uncomfortable with the level of fan attention that came with the role.
The film is due to hit cinemas in August 2014 – let’s hope there are no more cast changes before then!
Do you think that Jamie Dornan is the right man to play Mr Grey?
