Fans of the acclaimed British drama The Fall will be pretty stoked with this news.
Irish actor Jamie Dornan, one of the show’s stars, is in final talks to play Christian Grey in the adaptation of E.L. James’ best-seller Fifty Shades of Grey.
Fifty Shades Greypies were thrown into chaos when the original Christian, Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam, pulled out of the production two weeks ago.
The casting of 31-year-old Dornan alongside Dakota Johnson’s Anastasia will hopefully be the final change in director Sam Taylor-Johnson’s production, slated to begin shooting mid-November.
According to female sources in the Booktopia offices, Jamie Dornan is a bit of alright. What do you think? Is the man once dubbed “the Golden Torso” by The New York Times the right man for the job?
