CASTING SPELLS

PHOTOS: Jamie Dornan Will Play S/M-Obsessed Billionaire Christian Grey

imagesSorry again Matt Bomer fanatics, but another actor has landed the coveted role of the sexually adventurous billionaire in the film adaptation of the mommy porn bestseller 50 Shades of Grey. Variety reports handsome Irish model-cum-actor Jamie Dornan has nabbed the part of Christian Grey following the unexpected departure of previously-cast Charlie Hunnam.

As he’s demonstrated in the past, Dornan, who’s appeared in the film Marie Antoinette and ┬áthe TV series Once Upon a Time, certainly won’t be uncomfortable with the nudity required for the role.

See more photos of the stunner below.

      As a true bisexual, I have to say that last pic is erotic as a fu*k(which is what I wouldn’t mind doing with them both)

      This guy is so freaking hot. He’s in the BBC show The Fall (which is on US Netflix) and his acting is fantastic. Dunno how this 50 shades of gray thing will turn out though…

      I like this pick for Christian Grey.

      I think this is a part that almost requires a talented, but relatively ‘unknown’ actor. Plus, as his photos demonstrate, he can have markedly different looks (to the point where I almost didn’t think it was the same person).

      Matt Bomer, however wonderful, is firmly in the public eye from his tv series as the lead actor (leading to comparisons) and simply being gay (leading to questionable revenue for the film). I have no doubt he would hit a homerun in his performance, but movie producers don’t like questions… they do like profits and this isn’t an art movie, it’s softcore porn.

      Jamie offers something ‘fresh’ that I think is needed in this role, something unknown and mysterious whereas other actors may be too familiar with preset expectations of their performance.

      I also think very established actors are concerned about their image whereas newer potential lead actors can hopefully only go up.

      With Jamie, I can envision a deep, dark, cruel side. Charlie, not so much, nor with Matt.

      Much better choice than Bomer. Not that he isn’t handsome but Dornan is smokin’ hot.
