Jamie Dornan takes over lead in Fifty Shades of Grey


Update: My wife says this is a good choice. That is all.

Original: There has been much heartbreak and angst over the casting of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Recently the leading man Charlie Hunnman up and left the production. That left producers scrambling for someone new before the November 1 start-of-production date. It didn’t actually take them too long. Jamie Dornan will now be playing Christian Grey.

You most likely know Dornan from playing Sexy McSexyalot on both Once Upon a Time and The Fall. Having not read the books I cannot tell you if this is good casting, but he kind of has the same look as Hunnman and people liked that choice, right? I don’t actually know since I don’t know all that many people who know anything about Fifty Shades of Grey. I’m not sure if that’s bad or not.
