Perhaps one of the most talked about casting process’ in 2013 was the selection of who will play the role of popular literature’s new found love machine – Christian Grey from 50 Shades of Grey.
A few hollywood A-listers were mentioned, a few up and coming names were also included – each individual, a fine specimen of manhood. It must have been a tough job but someone had to do it!
Then came the results. Book fans seemed to favor Matt Bomer and were quite surprised to discover that the casting team went for Charlie Hunnam. This proved to be short lived as the Sons of Anarchy blonde dropped out a few weeks after.
In less than a month they found their replacement: Actor and Model Jamie Dornan.
Though relatively unknown in the acting realm, Jamie is much more entrenched in the system. He used to date Keira Knightley and even reportedly wrote a song about her after their two-year relationship ended in 2005. He also played a part in the hit TV series Once Upon a Time as the sheriff. Adding to this, he had a small role in Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette starring Kristen Dunst.
But most importantly, he is a professional model. Having modeled for Calvin Klein, Dior and Armani, Jamie is one of the most recognizable faces in print ads and campaigns.
So here’s a sampling of Jamie Dornan’s sexiness in full Calvin Klein glory!
So, are you happy with Jamie as Christian Grey?
