Is Jamie Dornan the New Christian Grey?
Variety broke the story earlier this evening, but both Universal and Focus Features declined to comment on the casting news.
The model-turned-actor has starred in Marie Antoinette, Once Upon a Time and The Fall. Back in 2009, Socialite Life featured Dornan in their Male Model Monday series, which we insist you study so that we can discuss whether or not Dornan is fit to tie up Dakota Johnson.
Hunnam recently pulled out (sorry) of the film adaptation, citing both personal and professional reasons.
"I have had some family stuff going on so just trying to stay focused and stay positive and keep trying to do a good job at work and be with my family and stay positive," he told E! News.
I still vote Colin Egglesfield for the part. Have you seen that man's jawline?
