    That’s how Brad Pitt would look if he wasn’t married to Angelina Jolie
    - Happy, Calm, Serene…
    Dylan Neal is not a movie star – and who cares ? – but a
    Real Handsome Man .S2

    Gorgeous man! Dylan is also on the Hallmark Channel series “Cedar Cove” as Jack – Andie Macdowell’s boyfriend on the show. He gets even more handsome with age :)

    He’s such a good pick to play Bob! Finally some good casting! I still hope that they’ll replace Dakota, she’s just not Ana and I refuse to accept her as Ana. But I’m oke with Jamie Dornan.

    he should’ve been Christian NOW. please.

    I like Dakota Johnson – she looks Sharon Stone when was young -
    despite not knowing her acting. I think Jamie Dornan is a mistake -
    he is handsome, but his acting is wooden.
    Good appearance in this case ain’t enough.
    Charlie Hunnam was a good choice – looks nice and is talented.
    Why not Matt Bomer, like everybody wanted ? – Not
    brilliant, but better than Jamie.
    Jamie Dornan is wrong !

    So the supporting men are going to outshine the leading one, huh? First Max, now Dylan? Looks like nobody cares about it anyway.

    A few years younger and this guy would have made a better Christian Grey than Jamie Dornan.
