'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie Casting: Top Ten Choices for Christian Grey [PHOTOS]
E.L. James fans are screaming with delight all over the world following the news that Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the Christian Grey role. Now, Matt Bomer along with a few other favourites has another shot at being cast in the film adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey." Here are the top ten actors suited to replace Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey in the film.
After E.L. James made the cast announcement on her Twitter account, Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson immediately received fan hate and back lash. Surprisingly, a petition sparked on Change.org which has already garnered 85,000 signatures. Obviously, fans had gotten what they had asked for.
As for Hunnam, Universal Studios may claim it was due to his "busy schedule" which forced him to drop the role.
"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," said Universal Pictures in a report by The Hollywood Reporter.
Yet, other sources claim Hunnam got "cold feet" for the part which led to him dropping out of the film adaptation.
"[Two] sources now say Hunnam got cold feet on the [Fifty Shades] movie, TV schedule said to have nothing to do with his exit," tweeted Matt Belloni, executive director of a magazine.
With Charlie dropping out, fans who had desperately wanted Matt Bomer for the part now have their shot once more. Check out the slideshow to see all ten actors suited to play the part of Christian Grey now that Charlie Hunnam is out of the picture.
