Charlie Hunnam Is Out of Fifty Shades of Grey

Well, this is fifty shades of f—-ed up…Charlie Hunnam has pulled out of his role as Christian Grey in the film adaptation of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey. Was the backlash from fans too hot for him to handle? As you’ll recall, devoted readers of the series were upset that C was cast because he wasn’t at all what they fantasized about when flipping through the pages of erotic novel. They even started a petition to get Charlie out of the role. Turns out, if you fight something hard enough, you’ll get your way…

WENN

“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,” Universal Pictures and Focus Features announced Saturday in a joint statement.

Looks like it’s back to the drawing board for who will play this sexy lead role. Will it be a fan favorite like Robert Pattinson or Matt Bomer? Or do you have another man in mind to take on this tough crowd? Tell me in a comment below! XOXO

  21. melissa Said:

    matt bomer is gay he’s gorgeous but i don’t think is a good idea because us people like to fall for this characters. Ryan gosling , Zac Efron , Chace Crawford, Hayden Christensen are crear for Christian

  27. kaylyn Said:

    did anyone read the book?? all these guys with dark hair and dark eyes as suggestions why do u think she chose C HELLO!!! hes light haired an light eyed just like edward from twilight which is what this is based off of she wants someone with light features that but off a bad boy persona hence Ian and Matt arent gonna get it anyway plus read the news people they turned it down. so Alexander Skasgard could get it DUH!! trueblood has ended so hes got plenty of time woot wooot!!

  28. Maria Said:

    Ian Somerhalder would be soooo perfect for the role! The look in his eyes is so sexy! :)

  29. Mel Said:

    No one should play Christian .. 50 shades of Grey is a “good” novel but it will be an awful movie. Plus the actors who will play in it will ruin their careers.

  30. Kathlyn Dizon Said:

    my ideal Christian Grey is Ryan Gosling!

  31. Samantha Said:

    Logan Lerman are you joking the kids like 14

  32. Amanda Brunet Said:

    Ian Somerhalder is the ONLY man I can picture as THE Christian Grey!!!

  33. C Said:

    Why hasn’t anyone thought of Henry Cavill?

  34. C Said:

    Why has nobody considered Henry Cavill?

  35. JAY Said:

    MATT BOMER HAS TURNED DOWN THE ROLE!! The PERFECT Christian Grey is going to be Ian Somerhalder he has been TRYING to get this role since the beginning! Alexander Skargard is also YUMMY so I will put him as my #2 pick ;) but to all of you crazies out there who actually thought Charlie was a good fit… Please re-read the books and go masturbate to SOA ;) k thanks

  36. Nadya Said:

  57. Jess Said:

    Colin Egglesfield all the muthaf*cking way.

    Matt Bomer is gay in real life (nothing against gay people i have many close friends that are) but if we are talking about the glorious Christian Grey, shouldnt we prefer someone we can fantasize about even after leaving the theatres?
    Colin Egglesfield is perfect, cause he hasnt had a huge rol, like we’ll aslways see Ian as Damon for example, so Colin is fresh and clear to be Christian, pluss hes hot as hell :)

  58. Maria Said:

    There’s no doubt… Ian Somerhalder! !

  59. Avalon Said:

    I have a list for both Christian and Ethan grey.
    for Christian Id like to see him be played by, Eric Winter, Matt Bomer, Ian Somerholder, Colin Egglesfield, Chace Crawford, Ryan Gosling, or Liam Hemsworth. For Ethan id like to see Kellan Lutz, Zac Efron, Chris Evans, Paul Wesley, Alex Petyfer, Chris Hemsworth. ANY OF THESE ACTORS WOULD BE PERFECT FOR THE ROLE IN MY OPINION.

  60. Marita Said:

    ALEX PETTYFER!

  61. A Said:

    Matt Bomer!!!

  62. J Said:

    Chace Crawford!! ♥

  63. Kristina Said:

    Ian!!!..!!Only

  64. nanajannah Said:

    Ryan Reynolds!

  65. J Said:

    HENRY CAVILL. PLEASE.

  66. wendy Said:

    i was picturing ian somerhalder the whole time when i was reading the novel, but i think he’s kinda small(he’s fine but i think christian is someone who’s much taller etc)? but whoever’s cast as christian grey im still gonna watch it.

  67. Rosey Said:

    Ian Somerhalder will play this part to a Tee !!!! (: gorgeous man he is lol

  68. Nina Said:

    Matt Bomer has to play the role of Christian Grey. Although I wouldn’t mind if it was played by Ian Somerhalder.

  69. dontcare Said:

    Matt Bommer is perfect for the role, why doesnt the writer see that? fuccker

  70. vicky Said:

    Alexander Skarsgard <3
    only

  71. Apoorva Said:

    IAN is perfect, though CHACE CRAWFORD too would make a dreamy Christian. Matt Bomer could’ve been perfect too had he not been gay, with no offences to him and his fans, it’s just that we would like the feeling of fantasizing about Christian Grey to remain longer with us, and he being gay overrules that, sadly.

  72. Rachel Said:

    Personally I think Charlie was perfect for the role. I’m not a fan of the book, and he was really the only reason I probably would have seen it. I’m happy the choice was his own welfare. No point overexerting yourself! I’m over the moon R.P DIDNT get chosen, I just don’t get the obsession. I’m not too keen on the new guy but each to their own….I might watch the movie on $1 Tuesdays or something

  73. Jules Said:

    Please, please, please NOT Robert Pattinson!!!!

  74. Tasha Said:

    HENRY CAVILL YOU GUYSSSSSSS !!!! I MEAN LOOKK AT HIMMMM !!!
