He is so damn hot

# 2

He’s so sexy, I hope they keep his hair the way it is!

# 3

He is sooooooo hot!

# 4

I hope now since getting the role in Fifty Shades he wont let the crazy hooplah surrounding the movie go to his head because he seems so awesome and down to earth.

# 5

Love him. Just because of him, i will go watch the movie.

# 6

I think fans of the book already have an established Christian Grey in their minds and this guy looks the total opposite of how Christian is described in the book so that’s why many won’t watch the movie…

@Meh: Ya, I agree. I’m just glad that neither Ian or Matt didn’t get cast in this crap because if that was the case, I was actually going to see this mess. Lol. Thank the lord!

never finished reading fifty shades of grey as i got bored of it but can see why they picked him.if he loses the beard and loses some of the muscle he has,he makes a believable christian grey

@Meh:

This is a major problem when an author continuously describes physical aspects of a character in detail like James did in Grey. Or Lee Childs in his Jack Reacher novels. Not a book went by that we didn’t read several times over that Reacher was 6’5″ with XXXL chest etc. Tom Cruise was doomed with diehard Reacher fans before he even started filming. Same thing with Christian Grey. James describes him in detail and Hunnan isn’t Grey. He is an extremely talented actor, but you can’t help but get a picture of Grey from all of James’ descriptive verbiage. So neither Hunnan or Johnson fit the pictures that James has so painstakingly described with appearances.

@boom:

There are some things he can change like lose weight, dye hair and so on, but he is not tall which is very important and he has wrinkles around his mouth, on his forehead and under his eyes that can’t easily be corrected, especially those around his mouth…plus the Christian in the book is always referred to as very, very good-looking or as Ana put it “no one should be as good-looking”, someone to take your breath away…this guy looks ok and I’m sure with a little help he could be attractive but they needed someone with a huge sex-appeal and this dude is faaaaaar from it…

Oh and the perfect white teeth that mesmerize Ana from their very first meeting…just google this guy’s teeth…nothing perfect there…but as expected no one will come close to the Christian in the book except Matt Bomer and he is out so this movie is a promised flop…and don’t get me started on that Dakota girl…

IT IS VERY TRUE THAT ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!
.
The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces is so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
.
All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds!!! They will never admit they can!
.
Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.
.
PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!

@HONESTLY:

look at this & say that again

@….:

Come on, all I see is a muscular guy with beard screaming attention from every pore…don’t get me wrong, I’m sure this guy is talented and whatnot and he can scrub up well but he is missing that ‘something’ that other potential actors had to portray Grey…

I cannot wait for Sons of anarchy to be back, hope he can get more work after 50 shades because he’s really talent, although not the most suited to play this role IMHO.

he’s fat & bloated; looking like SANTA CLAUS – totally not hot & georgeous = FAILED

@HONESTLY: ahahhahahha are you kidding me
Charlie is over 6ft tall
What are you talking about? He is very tall. I was not going to watch this crapfest of a ok but Becker Charlie i will be. He is extremely talented.and picks his works carefully which leads me to believe that the script and movie may just be much better than what I’ve heard about the book.give the guy a chance
People stop bashing before the film has even been made smdh

@….:
EXACTLY!!!!!!!
They seem to look at him not in character yet and not done up to be the character yet and even then hot as hell and base their ideas of what he will look like as Christian grey on that. how stupid. they are actors and part of the process is to morph into a character and whole different person to themselves. Personally i haven’t read the books and won’t be. Reading them. I will just let charlie be Christian grey without any badly written book ruining it for me. This is an instance where i think the movie is going to outshine the book immensely and they made a great decision by choosing charlie and not the obvious favourites. Says a lot.they know what they’re doing and. I Have a feeling that all the naysayers will be changing their minds and back tracking on their very unnecessary and prematurely negative comments.watch this space

@HONESTLY: LOSER! YOU’RE NOTHING BUT A HORNY LITTLE ***** THAT DOESN’T GET WHAT SHE WANTS AT HOME. HAHAHA

I’ve read all 3 books of fifty shades….and I will give Charlie a chance……why not….

Christian Grey is a guy with many layers of personality and by the EL James descriptions, he looks older than his age (27)

Personally I think Charlie is a good choice to play Christian in the movie. At first, I was like all you haters out there and I thought he was totally wrong for the part, but then I googled images of him and I realized that he has an amazing body and he cleans up really nice. I was basing my opinion on what he looks like now (rugged bad boy look), which was the wrong thing to do. He is playing a rugged bad boy in a motorcycle gang in SOA so therefore he looks like a rugged bad boy now. That’s what actors do, they get into character for whatever role they are playing. There is a lot more to acting than just looking the part. The other actors might not have been available, they might not have wanted the part, or they might not have been believable in the part.

I will repeat what someone already said in another comment…fans of Twilight were outraged when Robert Pattinson was cast as Edward, but after the movie was released all those haters were the ones saying he was perfect for the part. Why can’t the same be true for Charlie playing Christian in FSoG? Give him a chance….I bet he will surprise the hell out of all of us.

Another comment also mentioned that Ana doesn’t wear makeup in the books, but you fail to remember that Bella didn’t wear makeup in the Twilight books either but yet in the movie you could clearly tell she was wearing makeup. Name an actor on tv or the movies that isn’t wearing makeup.

think it should have been left to everyones imagination we all have a different picture in our heads for these characters and sadly he is not my idea of Christian grey .

MikeRenault @ 10/13/2013 at 8:54 pm

Ryan Gosling or a complete unknown but if I hear about matt bomer
one more time I swear I will vomit. He is a filthy, smarmy, lying ****** girl.! He is such a piece of trash! I remember him from New York and what a sleaze. He is not masculine enough for Christian Grey. He takes it up the bum. Not a picture I want in my head. He’s a freaking queen for God’s Sake. A total sissy!
