Looks like the search for Christian Grey is back on. After causing an uproar with his casting, Charlie Hunnam has dropped out of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation. The powers-that-be claim it’s due to his hectic schedule, but a part of me thinks something else is amiss. Could it be Hunnam just wasn’t bringing it on set? Or perhaps the studio caved to all those online campaigns to remove both Hunnam and Dakota Johnson from the film. Whatever the reason, here’s the official press release.
“The filmmakers of Fifty Shades of Grey and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam’s immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey,” – Universal Pictures
Personally, I liked Hunnam as Grey. Mostly because I didn’t have to read about all those annoying casting rumors. Prepare yourself for another onslaught of this actor and that actor being attached to the project. UGH. I’m also bummed we won’t get to see the Sons of Anarchy hottie getting super freaky in bed. With that hot body, we are all losing out. Check out his studliness below.
