    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.

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

    jessica Says:

    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…

    booksgalore111 Says:

    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.

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

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

    Bessie Bambo Says:

    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.

  15. 15
    Bessie Bambo Says:

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

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

    brightviolette Says:

    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 Says:

    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.

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

    at last Says:

    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 Says:

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

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

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

    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.

  28. 28
    Maria Says:

    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.

    Ale Says:


    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!!

  32. 32
    Ale Says:


    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 Says:

    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.

    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.

    anne Says:

    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.

    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 Says:

    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

  46. 46
    lol Says:

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

    @Crysania: AGREED. tbh this role is seriously beneath most actors who the masses would want to play it.

  52. 52
    j Says:

    @Sabrina: because no A lister in their right mind would touch this POS franchise.

  53. 53
    Stacey Says:

    Well any choice that involves and unknown is good. Any real actor the caliber of a Bomer or Gossling would never take it. We know matt declined it before they came up with Charlie.

    Frida Says:

    OH HECK NO! He’s far too good for this crap!

    J.P. Grider Says:

    I don’t know him – but he’d fit the part perfectly. WOW!

  56. 56
    Dasha Says:

    They should just give up the project. None of these actors can portray Christian Grey. The suitable actor in terms of beauty and talent was Garrett Hedlund and he refused the role. Charlie Hunman could’ve been a great Grey as well that’s too bad he dropped it.

    It wasn’t me saying his eyes were dark, I was answering and saying the same as you “that his eyes are blue”…focus better on what is written!!

    Yes yes yes I have been saying Jamie Dornan from the start!!!!!

    Nala Says:

    If hiring an Oscar nominating script doctor couldn’t stop Hunnam running, the script must sucked so hard. So good luck to this guy.
    It’s all E.L.James’ fault, she let her ego fly so high thinking her work was some piece of great everyone should stick to and completely lost the chance of being saved by someone who can actually create good stuff from crap.
    R.I.P. the movie studio who’ve paid big money for it.

    Waaaay better than Charlie Hunnam!! My number one was Matt Bomer but I do like him..

    Carol Says:

    I just google Christian Cooke and THAT’S GREY. THAT’S HIM!

  64. 64
    Heather Says:

    No way. This better just be rumors. Jamie Dornan and Christian Cooke are both too short and scrawny. Christian is tall and broad-shouldered! They didn’t follow the books when casting for Ana though, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised if they don’t for this new Christian. Ugh. Honestly, they need to get rid of Dakota and recast Ana’s role too, or scrap this whole thing!

  65. 65
    Lisa Says:

    @Carol: No way, he’s way too short and looks even shorter on screen. Christian is tall and broad and intimidatingly and beyond beautiful. None of these guys “rumored” work.

    Jimi Paradise Says:

    Personnaly, i’d prefer Matt Bomer as Mr. Grey.

  67. 67
    nessa Says:

    Bring it on. I mean I was focusing on Charlie not really looking right so much. That I didn’t even think about him. He is SO cute. I could definitely see him as Christian. He has a cute face, but has a hint of a bad boy in his looks, which is perfect. I can’t believe I didn’t think about him before after Once upon a Time.
