    I can’t believe I didn’t think about him! He is goooorgeous. He is awesome in ”The fall”. so sexy


    Let me just snip this one in the bud right now. 50 Shades of [Jennifer] Grey is an inspired allegory about the 50 states of the USA. Whose “moderate” third way sectarian Jewish values are now firmly embedded in the 1950s 1960s era grey area; where nothing is black and white anymore.

  • Blondie78

    PERFECT!!! I can’t believe I didn’t think of him sooner!! He’s beautiful!

  • sighnomore

    Jamie run! Please don’t be a part of this shitty franchise!

  • SaadGKhan

    He is fantastic in The Fall as Psycho Killer …!

  • LOL42

    Jamie is actually doing credible work with a BBC TV series. He has managed to relegate his CK past. But this? Jamie Nooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • jessica

    Yes!!!! He is sooo incredibly gorgeous.Don’t know how I didn’t think of him. If they choose him, they will definitely be making up for their awful selection of Charlie in the first place. Now if they could only get rid of Dakota…

  • lola

    wowwww yesssssss

  • booksgalore111

    None of these actors resemble the repetitive description of Christian. James put so much emphasis on the characters looks, yet she is considering actors that look nothing like them. Maybe I misread her words? Was James picturing someone else entirely? Surely, millions of loyal fans know what they want, yet the author who brought him to life doesn’t.

  • Muffster

    He looks a lot better as christian then charlie did he would be a good pick

  • Yum

    This is going down the right alley. THey should have picked underwear models for this porno show in the first place.

  • Ale

    He’s perfect!!! Loved him in Once upon a time.

  • Bessie Bambo

    Actually, I’ve read interviews with Jamie and gathering from the type of person he is and the type of actor he wants to be, this type of project is not the type that I think, he would want to pursue.

  • Bessie Bambo

    It’s probably nice publicity for him though, but I think that’s all he would want out of it.

  • British Latin American

    A part of me wouldn’t mind me see him doing this, but another part of me would hate it if he did.

  • brightviolette

    I haven’t read the books, but he is very good looking and he has sex appeal. I think he’d be a good choice.

  • Timber

    Jamie is drop dead gorgeous, he’s been on my radar since OUAT. But the only way I’d want him to take this part is if his gorgeous wife was playing the part of Ana.

  • mary

    he’s hot!!! hopefully this rumor turns out to be true. fingers crossed

  • at last

    If Jamie wants be known for serious work and not for his modeling, he should not take this role. This movie has disaster written all over it. Hollywood will typecast him, limiting the roles given. Robert Pattinson is still trying to leave his Edward image behind. No serious or up comers will take this role. Why would you want Jamie to take this role? I hope he doesn’t take it.

  • Crysania

    God I hope not. This role is seriously beneath him.

  • April

    This NEEDS to happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Gabriela

    he would have to really work on his accent though. It’s a really thick northern irish accent but I suppose he can manage

  • Krys

    Honesty, his perfect.. I always imagined Christian Grey as Matt Bomer but he somehow seems he can manage!

  • Sabrina

    who? i can’t with all these B come none of the A list wants in on this movie?

  • sarah

    @Sabrina: cause the book sucks and it´s a b listers movie

  • LOL

    Well he won’t be taken seriously as an actor now. Second choice to Charlie also who saw the script, didn’t want to become a joke and then ran.

  • Maria

    No doubt he is really hot. But he does not have the right coloring. They could dye his hair copper, but how are they going to turn those brown eyes grey? Very hard to change dark eyes to light eyes and have them look normal.

  • aida
  • Nikki

    NNNOOOOO!!! I like you more then Charlie! Don’t do it!!!!!!!!!

  • Ale


    Jamie has blue eyes, what are you talking about?? Go google him!
    And actors change their hair color every time for their characters…what’s the big deal??
    He’s better than Charlie Humman for sure!!

  • Ale


    1) Charlie was a second choice himself, since the role was offered to Garrett Hedlund first and he refused it.

    2)Charlie didn’t run because of the script, but because got cold fit and understood that the pressure and celebrity coming from this movie was too much and not he wanted, basically he didn’t have a clue before what that role really meant in terms of pressure and popularity.

    3) The movie has a script written by 2 screen writers, the last one added to the team before Charlie left is the Oscar-nominated screenwriter Patrick Marber….

  • Cait

    Yes! Yes! Yes! I never saw him before but he would be a great Christian! He’s hot! I’d love him or Christian Cooke. I just hope they find someone soon so they can start on time.

  • Lia

    His eyes are blue idiots and he is a great actor. I love this guy. Hire him !!!

  • Lia


  • Diane

    Too bad, they could not get someone who could actually ACT. Was NOT going to go see this with Charlie, still NOT going to go see it with this guy either. Too bad, was looking forward to seeing it.


    Only 36 badly orchestrated marketing troll comments from way far away overseas, so this unwanted pretender is as unwanted as the last one.

  • Janire

    Omg, if they have Jamie I want to be Anastasia so bad!! xD

  • GayVibe

    I am so getting a gay vibe from this guy!

  • joyce

    God. Thank you for bringing this guy on earth. Amen.

  • Domino

    Just shut down this stupid production, obviously nobody wants to be part of a stupid poorly written fanfiction!

  • anne

    Just browsing these three guys on youtube and here’s the results. Jamie Dornan is hot in picture but not so much in motions, seen his scenes on Once Upon A Time, he’s so wooden, can’t find other clips of him as actor mostly just model portfolio, not sure if he’s able to pull off CG complex personality with such limited acting expereriences. Theo James looks greasy in picture, but much hotter and charming on his scenes, but he already have another franchise – Divergent. Christian Cooke seems like better choice, he’s hot, have troubling looks, looks convincing many scenes of his movies, but he’s bit too short for so old and too tall Dakota.

  • jowinn

    I aprove!

  • Anna

    Jamie is one of the most gorgeous men that i have ever seen,with The Fall he has prooven that he is agreat actor as well.He is definetly underrated (and definetly x999999999999999 hotter than Hunnam) but i wish his big break in Hollywood won;t be this trashy franchise.He deserved a good career but starting it with 50SOG?BTW i’m still bummed about The Huntsman’s demise on Once Upon a Time…he is still my favourite.

  • julie

    After casting old haggard washed up junkie Dakota who looks 34 instead of her own age 24, now they want to hired Jamie Dornan undies models while looking hot in pics have limited acting experiences and so wooden in his limited time in Once Upon A Times scenes, totally trainwreck in the making there. Shame it could be good projects, but they ruined it all themselves

  • lol

    @Sabrina: No one in their right mind would take part in this movie. It’s a career killer.

  • http://windellz Angie

    NO NO NO get Charlie back

  • Pauline

    Yeeeees I completely forgot about the guy ! I want him to be Christian Grey he fits perfectly … But doesn’t he have brown eyes ?

  • Eve

    This massive piece of crap again? I mean the book, don’t know the guy.

  • oh well

    Run, Jamie, RUN! Please don’t do it.
