'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie Casting: Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey [PHOTOS]
Casting call for the lead roles in "Fifty Shades of Grey" had been announced early this month. Even so, only now have news of the auditions poured in. Yesterday, Bryce Thompson, Men's Health magazine model, confirmed that he had auditioned for the part of Grey. Now, it looks like another celebrity is up for the role. Is Charlie Hunnam the next Christian Grey?
The casting speculation continues for the highly-anticipated film adaptation of E.L. James best-selling erotica novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey." Despite the cast call announcement made early this August, fans are left to scour the web with regards to official casting news. With regards to a potential cast, producers have quite the qualifications for the lead roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.
For the part of Christian, producers want an extremely good-looking male between the ages of 25 to 33. On the other hand, for the part of Ana producers are looking for a very beautiful female between the ages of 20 to 25. A handful of celebrities have already been dubbed as suitable given the requirements but none of them had even auditioned for the parts.
However, this week two celebrities have been confirmed to have tried out for the part of Christian Grey. Male model, Bryce Thompson, was the first to confirm his audition via his Twitter account. Another actor who had auditioned for the part is Charlie Hunnam.
The "Pacific Rim" and "Sons of Anarchy" star is the latest Hollywood hunk eyed for the part. Check out the slideshow to see more of Charlie Hunnam.
