IMDB Lists Wellington Barrientos For Christian Grey Role in 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie - Disaster Waiting to Happen? [SEE PHOTOS]
Internet Movie Database (or IMDb as it is popularly known as) has listed TV actor Wellington Barrientos as a prospective Christian Grey for the movie "Fifty Shades of Grey." The change was made after "Sons of Anarchy" star Charlie Hunnam announced he has no interest to play the lead role.
Lesser known Barrientos has played the role in new TV series "Orange in New Black" in the episode Restaurant Parton with Girlfriend. The bald actor has also appeared in "Michael J. Fox Show" Handsome Model on Date (1 episode, 2013), according to IMDb.
It may be noted that the 6 feet tall Latino guy is actually bald and has also been listed as a model with Wilhelmina Philadelphia service agency, which represents the models and actors in the Greater Philadelphia region.
The 25-year-old actor's upcoming movies include "An American in Hollywood" directed by Sai Varadan where he is casted in a role of a bar patron, "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" - a Keira Knightley starrer movie where he plays a small role of a Wall Street businessman. He has mostly acted in TV series.
IMDb has some user reviews about this "rumoured" Christian Grey, which are not very good.
"In the fifty shades of grey imdb page, the role of christian grey is rumored that will be played by Wellington Barrientos. They gotta be kidding me!? I mean, he doesnt look like the description of grey on the book," writes a user andrenovado on IMDb.
"I thought Christian is white? Did I just miss something?? I laughed so hard when I saw this in the IMDB. Haha," writes another user vanessabaltazar on the site.
However, we also saw one supporter of the new Christian Grey.
"When its hot its Hot Look how Many People love Obama," writes DisneyCastlePrince on IMDb.
Ever since it was announced that the successful EL James novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" will be turned into a movie there has been a lot of speculation on who will play the lead roles where a good amount of sexual chemistry is required. Christian Grey has been described as a successful yet arrogant man who loves bondage sex and wants Anastasia Steele (now Dakota Johnson) to sign a contract with him based on it.
When Hunnam was cast as Christian Grey, nobody liked the star cast and he had to quit. But casting Wellington Barrientos as Christian Grey would be a disaster waiting to happen. Let's hope the casting description by IMDb is just a mistake!
