Charlie Hunnam Spotted on Set After 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Exit

Charlie Hunnam keeps a low profile in a hoodie and jeans while walking around the set of his television series Sons of Anarchy on Monday morning (October 14) in Los Angeles.

It was announced over the weekend that the 33-year-old actor had dropped out of the highly anticipated film Fifty Shades of Grey, in which he was to play the title character Christian Grey.

The producers of the film cited Charlie‘s commitment to the television show, which is not allowing enough time in his schedule for him to prepare to play the role.

We polled Just Jared readers on who they think should replace Charlie in the film and Matt Bomer was the clear winner with Ian Somerhalder coming in second place. Who do you think should play the part???

    I think Colin Farrel would be good for that part…He b YUMMY!!!! I won’t see this movie anyways (already read the books)…Now if Charlie would have played the part I most likely would have had to go see it…I love love love SOA…He plays the coolest part as Jax Teller…He is so sexy in that part & the show is gritty & sexy & full of surprizes…It is my favorite show……..

    He’ll have more paparazzi following him seeking for any declaration after the news of him dropping out the role.

  • TheBisback

    Timothy Oliphant should get this part

  • Bianca

    Everybody needs to back off. Seriously, back off. Give him a freaking break…. why are people so intrusive. Leave him alone already.

  • http://- Kate

    @Bianca: Exactly!!

  • Bianca


    How about he flips everybody who was/has been so vile towards him the bird. Then again, such a classy guy, he won’t. But that’s what everybody who was super utterly a-holes to him deserve. This past month has been just crappy for him.

    Keep your head up Charlie, your fans support you!!!!

  • TheMuffinman

    And i just got use to the fact he was going to be christian then he goes and drops out so so silly just hurry up and pick someone new already and no not Robert pattinson way to unattractive.

  • Fan

    Good move for Charlie, either way, i am still a fan.

  • BlogBrat

    You people don’t need to worry about Charlie…Jax is doing just fine…I do mean FINE FINE…He is going to be such a big celeb before you know it…They wouldn’t have ask him to play the part if he wasn’t moving up fast…I am personally very happy he has commited himself to SOA…I own every season…He would have had to clean up too much for the part…He can’t be all cleancut & still play Jax Teller…I would be crushed if he left the show!

    Charlie Hunnam reveals the shocking reason he quit “50 Shades of Grey” in brand new interview, here’s the link

  • mags

    Don’t look so sad you made the decision that was right for you and everyone should understand that and respect that they get over it x

    He would have been awesome. Why does everyone want Matthew Bomer? I don’t get the appeal there. He’s too old and he would look bad as a blonde. I also can’t get past the fact that he’s gay in real life…it kind of ruins the fantasy element as a female. Please don’t take that as my being homophobic because it’s not meant in that way at all. My sister is a lesbian and I am all about equality…I just think it would kind of be a weird casting decision. :\

  • mary


    Im on charlies team, i think he’s so talented and i’m on his side, im just pointing out that after this, those paparazzi won’t leave him alone.
    and yes you are right, he’s a classy guy.

  • rose

    @Rena: totally agree with you! i dont find the appeal in Matt Bomer. He isnt that attractive

  • MrsOzzie

    I’m sure he is miserable because the media attention has not gone away.

    Chin up Charlie! Best move you made jumping off this train wreck.

    Hope we get another year of SOA out of this!

  • Yum

    Matt Bomer looks like a ken doll; too plastic. I’m looking forward to seeing Charlie in some great films in the future. He was awesome in Pacific Rim.

  • Bob

    He’s great. Looking forward to more Sons of Anarchy

  • Nadia

    Oh please don’t worry about him. Charlie is busy himself up with his two upcoming films alongside those names of Cate Blanchett, Christoph Waltz, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, and Guillermo del Toro. Please just forget about him 50SOG fans. And when your next new Mr Grey is cast, DO NOT come and beg Charlie back will you?


    In what time zone is this movie “highly anticipated”, as you say, because it certainly isn’t so “highly anticipated” in America? In America, it’s not even anticipated at all.

  • Camilla

    Would have loved Charlie in that par!! Travis Fimmel will do just fine as well :-P

  • Missy

    He looks so sexy… a bit lonely, but yeah, very hot!!!

  • victoria

    Charlie reconsider, you are what this project needs. You have it all, looks and talent. This movie can be a well made cinematic feature instead of a raunchy movie with no substance. I hope you change your mind and tell the producers you want creative control.

  • FS

    I am still a big fan, keep up the good work, Charlie!

  • Anna

    @Rena: Although I agree with you that Matt Bomer is totally wrong for the part because he’s gay, I disagree with you about the rest. Only a homo uses the term “homophobic” to bash normal people and only a homo is for “equality” even when it comes to sin. So, you need to come out of the closet already and admit to yourself that you do want Matt Bomer to play CG just like the rest of your fellow gays. There is NOTHING wrong with hating homosexuality. It is wrong and unnatural. And if you disagree, then you’re gay. Plain and simple.

  • JT

    Love you beautiful Charlie. Don’t look so sad. You are the best.
