We can’t say that we’re too sorry to hear this news, and we don’t think many other people are either. When Charlie Hunnam was first announced as the man to play Christian Grey, he didn’t get a lot of love from the series’ fans. First of all, he’s blond, and anyone that has read Fifty Shades knows that Grey is brunette. And he just isn’t pretty enough. Grey needs porcelain-like skin and piercing eyes, and Hunnam is like the opposite of that.
So now that he quit the role, apparently because of not having enough time to adequately prepare (how much time does he really need to learn a little S&M?), we hope that Universal Pictures does a much better casting job the second time around. Who do you want to play Christian Grey? Let us know in the comment section below!
