’Fifty Shades of Grey’ fans, get ready for the latest casting rumour for the role of Christian Grey.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the newest frontrunner for the lead role of the film adaptation of E.L. James’ steamy novel is actor Jamie Dornan.
With Charlie Hunnam's abrupt departure from film over the weekend, Universal Pictures and Focus Features were left scrambling to find a replacement in order to begin filming on Nov. 1.
So who is Jamie Dornan?
The 31-year-old Irish-born actor is a former Calvin Klein underwear model and is the ex-boyfriend of Keira Knightley.
Fans of the TV series Once Upon A Time will also remember Dornan as the Huntsman/Sheriff Graham.
He currently stars in British series The Fall.
Other actors also in the running for the role of Christian Grey include, Theo James and Christian Cooke and Alexander Skarsgard.
Despite the casting issue, the studio reportedly stands by its Aug. 1, 2014 release date with Dakota Johnson in the role of Anastasia Steele.
