  • Tom

    Coveted by the who’s who of the D list.

  • Jen

    He needs this job since he has a wife and soon to be baby to support. Who would cast a married man with a baby on the way??? Just think that baby is going to grow up and brag…my daddy is Christian Grey. WTF? This movie is trash.

  • sighnomore

    Oh God Jamie why?? You are so much better than this stupid movie!

  • mary

    Well, first in my opinion, its not true that an male actor career will be jeopardize for playing CG, in fact, the most from nude scenes will be made by the actress and then again no one is talking about that…
    That character, Christian, will not represent the debacle of Jamie’s career, contrary this will help him get him noticed, he’s such a talented actor very very underrated, people only see him as pretty face and stud body, but he’s way more than that. He cannot only Act but he can sing, and his pretty good at it too. So give the boy a chance to be in the spotlight in order to get better movie deals in the future, in the mean time this will be great to catapult him.

  • Emma

    Some of you need to get a life and get laid for real instead of daydreaming about this movie.

  • maria

    if this its officially said by the author herself or the producers in the couple of days ahead, i’ll be very happy!!

  • Nice!

    His wife would make a good Anastasia! she’s perfect! (but pregnant now :/ )

  • Stess

    RIP carreer.

  • Willa

    Noooooooo!!! I don’t like this kid, this would be a real trash.

  • SaadGKhan

    YES .. he is phenomenal as Psychopath in Irish show The Fall

  • Emma

    @mary: Whatever-he’ll also be known as the person who got the leftover. So many actors turned this role down for a reason. This movie is only out to make $$$$ from women who are desperate and lonely in their sex life.

  • Third eye

    If he was good enough for Keira, he must be awesome. Only problem is the film will ruin him. Bummer.

  • Alexandra

    i can live with that, it’s a much better choice for the role than Charlie

  • Nikki

    NO!!! So sad. You are better then this crap.

  • http://truth ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!

    Asians can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces 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 are trying as hard as they can to hide it!
    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, it works if you try enough!!!

    @British Latin American:

    Have you been wanking off on Yoda speak?

  • LOL

    He needs to work on his heavy British accent and started to workout now.

  • niagirl

    I guess knowing RPutz is helpful.

  • Ruth

    He was just wonderful in “The Fall” so he is obviously a very talented actor. Well it’s his career and I hope that appearing in FSoG won’t destroy it! Such a badly written load of rubbish!

  • jamiehsu


  • Adrienne

    I don’t see much difference between this guy and Charlie other than the fact that one is blonde and the other is brunette. This guy doesn’t do much for me. But congrats to him.

  • chet

    I think this is a good casting call and Sam Taylor-Wood is a great director, Nowhere Boy is amazing…

  • Julia

    He’s gorgeous, but also a good actor. Hopefully this doesn’t ruin his career.

  • Nikki

    yeah, he’s hot. Still won’t go see the movie though!

  • Maria

    The best choice they ever made!
    We can’t get rid of Dakota, perhaps Jamie can make up for it.
    I wasn’t going to see it, now I will.
