Really, maybe they were just reaching too far for Charlie Hunnam. A guy who’s already respected and got good movie roles under his belt was never going to commit to playing a fanfiction version of Edward Cullen in the hope of getting his name out there. So as Variety reports Jamie Dornan has now agreed to play Christian Grey in “50 Shades of Grey”. It just makes much more sense. Dornan will now star opposite the equally up-and-coming-but-not-quite-there-yet Dakota Johnson in the adaptation that Sam Taylor-Wood is directing (of theRead More
