Around seven actors have officially been eyed by producers and author E.L. James. Here are the seven sexy Hollywood hunks wanted for the part of Christian Grey.
Production for the erotica novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey," was due this month but had gotten delayed all thanks to Hunnam dropping out from the film. The "Sons of Anarchy" star allegedly blamed his "immersive TV schedule" which caused him to leave the part of Christian Grey. Another source however claims Charlie left the part of Grey because it gave him "cold feet."
"This isn't a surprise because what he was taking on with this role was not what Charlie wants in his future career," said the source, adding, "The attention and the pressure was intense. More than anything he hates attention and being in Fifty Shades of Grey would force him to do lots of media. That's really not his thing. Charlie doesn't want to be massively famous. Plus, he hates conforming and being told what to do. This role would force him to have to be something he is not."
Putting Charlie Hunnam aside, quite a few fans were pleased with the news that Charlie had left. This paved way to numerous names being called out as potential replacements.
