This week’s edition oEntertainment Weekly features an exclusive shoot with Fifty Shades of Grey stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.

After Chris Hunnam dropped out in mid-October, Variety reported that Irish-bred Dornan would play 27-year-old millionaire Christian Grey.

“There was a slight fear,” Dornan told the magazine after learning he landed the part.  “But beyond anything else, I was really f—ing excited.”

The movie’s release date was pushed back six months so as not to compete with the World Cup, according to the studio, which insisted the new date had nothing to do with recasting.
