Charlie Hunnam cast as Christian Grey

Later edit: A few weeks later Charlie Hunnam dropped out of "Fifty Shades of Grey" because of a really busy schedule, but let's be serious, we all know he actually tried to read the first book and that was the end of it!:)))) Seriously now, I think Charlie realized this was not what he wanted to do with his career and I applaud him for that! The new Christan Grey was announced soon after and he's Jamie Dornan, another British hottie who used to be a model (I've actually seen him in "The Fall" and he's not bad at all)!

At this point I’m convinced Hollywood and possibly the entire world is conspiring so that I go and watch Fifty Shades of Grey once it’s made into a movie. And you know what? I’m going to go because they did the only thing that would ever convince me to do so – they just cast Charlie Hunnam  as Christian Grey.

This will probably be one of the first movies I will see without reading the books first. Guys, I tried, I really did, but E. L James doesn’t do it for me (pun intended), she makes Stephenie Meyer and Twilight seem like the best read of all time. 

Charlie Hunnam will play opposite Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. Since I only read 40 pages of the first book I’m not going to comment on how good or bad Dakota is for this role. I know very few things about her, she’s Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith’s daughter and I’ve seen a few episodes of the comedy “Ben&Kate” she's starring in and that’s pretty much it. Seems like a good fit but I would have loved Alexis Bladel for this!

 
Apparently there’s a lot of controversy and hype around the decision and some people are complaining about Charlie Hunnam playing Christian Grey and I’m like: “Say what? Charlie is the only reason I would ever watch that shit! Like literally the only reason!"

So what I say is - get over it! He’s the hottest thing ever and a great actor, he’s too good for Christian Grey and Fifty Shades of Grey if you ask me. I hope this role is not going to ruin his career but rather bring him more fame/name recognition so that he can go further after this.


Girls of all ages will finally get the chance to watch some good television as I expect everybody will do their research and see him in Sons of Anarchy. SOA is an amazing TV show, surprisingly under the radar.

They’re ruining Charlie’s street cred as the badass to end all badasses: Jackson 'Jax' Teller with this but hopefully ratings for Sons of Anarchy will raise and the show will get more attention as a result.

 
I’ve been loving Charlie Hunnam long time as my faithful readers may know. I loved him even before Sons of Anarchy.

I remember first seeing him in Queer as Folk as Nathan Maloney in the late 90s – he was really very young then. I also remember him in the hilarious Undeclared as the hot British exchange student.

Recently Charlie Hunnam stared in Guillermo del Toro’s $100 million-grossing sci-fi Pacific Rim alongside Idris Elba.


As I mentioned before Charlie Hunnam starred in cult TV show Queer as Folk which ran for only ten episodes starting in April of 1999 and generated a less acclaimed but longer running American version. 

The British drama was an unapologetically honest depiction of modern gay life unlike any other before. Charlie Hunnam played 15-year-old Nathan (he was 18 back then) who begins the series as an innocent, wide-eyed newcomer to all things sexual until he meets much older and experimented Stuart Jones (played by Aidan Gillen - Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish from Game of Thrones).

Sounds familiar? Charlie kind of already embodied Anastasia Steele so it’s only natural he gets to play Christian Grey as well!!! Things have finally come full circle! So stop bitching about it and be grateful Charlie Hunnam knows his way around a sex scene. Between Queer as Folk and Sons of Anarchy, Charlie has been training hard for this!:)))))))))))))


A few more things you should know about love of my life Charlie Hunnam:
  •  he’s 33 years old and 6' 1" (1.85 m)
  •  he might look like your quintessential American boy but he’s British (originally from Newcastle, England) and faking the American accent in Sons of Anarchy
  •   he’s good friends with many of his Sons of Anarchy co-stars - Theo Rossi, Tommy Flanagan, Mark Boone Junior
  •  he has three brothers
  •  he auditioned for Dawson's Creek where he meet Katharine Towne that he married after three weeks (they were married for three years between 1999-2002)
  •  he's a screenwriter as well and pretty good at that since he already sold one script - Vlad - to Plan B and Summit Entertainment
  •  he was discovered in a shoe shop by a production manager
  •  loves to hit the gym (like this would ever surprise somebody with that body)
  •  his current girlfriend is jewelry designer Morgana McNelis who he's been dating for six years. 
  •  they recently left Los Angeles and now live on a farm in the California countryside
  •  he said he hasn’t eaten pork in 25 years.
  •  he stared in an ad campaign for Emporio Armani in 2005
  • Charlie likes folk, blues and bluegrass and he is a huge hip-hop fan (The RZA from Wu-Tang Clan is his favorite artist alongside Van Morrison and Tom Waits)

Nici eu nu am citit cartea dar cred ca ma voi uita la film pentru Charlie :)). Loved him in Green Street! Am vazut si Queer as folk dar am ramas prea socata dupa primul episod :)) ochii mei de adolescenta nu au putut rezista :))

Sara said...

@Laura B. - :)))) hahaha I feel you, si eu am fost socata, dar am rezistat, in my defence l-am vazut acum cativa ani si nu mai eram chiar adolesecenta!:))))

@Beth - you're a braver woman than me, I couldn't read them and I tried 2 or 3 times! I always want to see what's the hype and judge for myself!

Fifty Shades of Grey is a 2011 erotic romance novel by British author E. L. James. It is the first installment in the Fifty Shades trilogy that traces the deepening relationship between a college graduate, Anastasia Steele, and a young business magnate, Christian Grey. It is notable for its explicitly erotic scenes featuring elements of sexual practices involving bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism
I can't wait for the movie. I loved the books. I should agree this is the best written books.
