Alright world, rejoice! Because we now have a new Christian Grey. And he is quite the looker.
After weeks of speculation, news broke out on Wednesday, October 23 that Irish actor Jamie Dornan would be taking on the role in the upcoming adaption of Fifty Shades of Grey. I wonder if Scott Eastwood is sad about this turn of events.
Former Christian Grey Charlie Hunam is probably over the moon that he’s done with all of it. So, what do all the fans think of the new casting news?
From the reaction on Twitter, they seem to really love it. One user wrote, “HOLY MOTHER OF COW. THE NEW CHRISTIAN GREY ACTOR IS FREAKING SEXY AND HE’S AN IRISH.” I’d say that’s a lot of enthusiasm.
Still, as with any casting news, there were some haters who were less optimistic about the news. One Tweet said, “I’m sorry but, Jamie Dornan for Christian Grey?! Wtf. RIP 50 SHADES OF GREY. #RIP50ShadesOfGrey.”
Hopefully Jamie plays well against Anastasia Steele, Dakota Johnson. I mean, I don’t know why he wouldn’t. So what do we think of the casting news? Love it? Hate it? Still gonna sign the Matt Bomer/Alexis Bledel petition? Sound off in the comments! And if you need any more proof that Jamie is super hot, launch the gallery to check out some sexy modeling photos!
