[Updated] Charlie Hunnam joins Fifty Shades of Grey

The wait is over as we now have official word that Charlie Hunnam has secured the role of Christian Grey, the adopted young billionaire in Fifty Shades of Grey.

This comes after rumors surfaced a week or so ago that Hunnam was under consideration for the role. You probably recognize him from Sons of Anarchy and Pacific Rim. He will play Christian, the BDSM practicing CEO of his own company who coaxed Anastasia into becoming his sex slave. He is described as being tall and muscular with dark copper hair and grey eyes.

I don't know if Hunnam is the best choice, but I'm sure people will make it work. I just hope he is ready for the impact. He will be the next Robert Pattinson, I'm sure. He joins Dakota Johnson who has secured the role of Anastasia Steele.

[UPDATE] As of October 12, Charlie Hunnam is no longer attached to Fifty Shades of Grey. He dropped out of the project citing creative differences and scheduling conflicts. Read more about it here and here.
On October 23, Jamie Dornan was cast as Christian Grey. Read more about it here.


  1. I m excited for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. and I watch Charlie Hunnum's work it is pretty awesome to see on the screen. Fifty Shades

    1. I'll probably see it just because I read the book, but I might wait until DVD. Especially if it winds up PG-13.

  2. Charlie Hunnam's profile has been massively bolstered since it was announced he would play Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades Of Grey movie adaptations - and bosses have accordingly decided to hire him some bodyguards, according to a report.

    1. I'm sure there will be bodyguards and agents galore for both Hunnam and Johnson. I wouldn't expect any less.
