Charlie Hunnam Is Christian Grey

charlie-hunnamThose of us awaiting with eager anticipation for casting news about the upcoming adaptation of the EL James novel Fifty Shades of Grey just had our prayers answered! Or have we? Charlie Hunnam, the star of the hit FX show, Sons of Anarchy, has been cast as the enigmatic Mr. Grey opposite newcomer Dakota Johnson (the progeny of Hollywood legends Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson) as Anastasia Steele.

Hunnam’s other credits include: Pacific Rim, Children of Men, Cold Mountain, Nicholas Nickelby and Green Street Hooligans.

Using her twitter account to break the news, James wrote the following successive tweets that already have fandom buzzing:



Not everyone is pleased with the casting news with many fans still promoting personal favorites like Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder as better casting choices.



Fifty Shades of Grey will be released by Focus Features on Aug. 1, 2014, in North America. The central theme of the movie being the steamy relationship between a college student (Anastasia Steele) and a young elite billionaire (Christian Grey.)

Let us know what you think about this! Personally, I think Charlie is a great choice and will bring the same level of intensity, intrigue, and machismo that he has exhibited in past roles, including that of Jax Teller on Sons of Anarchy. Clearly he has demonstrated through his body of work how talented and versatile he truly is, and will be able to take the character of Christian Grey to the next level.

  1. Charlie is gorgeous and although he doesn’t fit the image some of us have in our head about what this real life Christian Gray will look like, it just gives him the opportunity to blow us all away with a performance we never expected! He makes my heart throb, along with some other areas…he’s already got me excited. I can’t wait to watch him in action!! Literally! The actess chosen for Anastasia on the other hand, what the heck were they thinking? She’s not even moderately pretty or distinguishable. That’s a shame.

  2. They are both awful! This is such a shoestring affair from the unknown screen writer and director to the miscast main parts. It seems like they went with the best they could get which wasn’t much. They’re relying on a captive fanbase to make this tripe a success but fans aren’t that easily made fools of. The best they could do-scrap the whole thing!

  3. Well this sucks, a lot of my friends won’t go see this. They say writer doesn’t know how to pick actors. This guy doesn’t fit the role. He looks to kiddie. I think Ian (the guy from the vampire dairies) was a better choice. Besides a least he has the eyes that pierce through you. ;)

  4. He’s losing an amazing career boost and tons of cash with this!
