After the sudden departure of Charlie Hunnam from Fifty Shades of Grey, Universal and Focus Features have been on the hunt for a new billionaire with a sex fetish. Seems like they came up with a really good one because all's quiet on the petition front.
Author E.L. James tweeted confirmation a few hours ago after a day of non-confirmation speculation that Irish actor, model. musician Jamie Dornan (31) will fill the role of Christian Grey alongside Dakota Johnson's Anastasia Steele.
"@E_L_James Stow your twitchy palms ladies... our man is here. Welcome to #TeamFifty @JamieDornan1 x"
Dornan has starred both in films and television. He had a brief but popular role as Sheriff Graham in the ABC series Once Upon a Time and has recently starred in the UK TV series The Fall.
