"50 Shades Of Grey movie bosses have already lined up a new hunk to play Christian Grey after Charlie Hunnam’s shock resignation last week. Step forward, Irish hottie, Jamie Dornan… According to The Hollywood Reporter, the startlingly handsome 31-year-old actor has shot to the top of the list of possible new leads to star in the highly anticipated silver screen adaptation of E.L. James’ saucy novel. We don’t blame them. Born and bred in Northern Ireland’s Holywood, 5ft 11 Jamie first made a name for himself in fairytale-themed TV series Once Upon A Time before taking on the role of psychopath in BBC crime drama The Fall earlier this year. With those beautiful baby blues and smouldering stare, we can totally see why he caught the casting director's eye. "

And seriously - these images of him, even with the light beard, he totally screams Christian to me. He's got that sexy, playful, yet serious look, all while looking like he could be mid twenties (he's actually 31 — so just a tad older than Christian is in the book).  Love him as the Sheriff/Huntsman in OUAT. What do you guys think?

He actually works much better for me as Christian than Charlie Hunnam.  Loved him in OUAT!

Shellie, yes, I agree. I loved Charlie after watching him in SOA, but, Jamie really exudes CG just by looks alone. I really hope he's able to act the part. :)

{And yes I know it's not some oscar worthy part, but I love the books and would like to at least see them done well, even if other people don't like them/the subject matter. /rant LOL}
