"Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam will no longer play Christian Grey in the film version of Fifty Shades of Grey. According to a statement from the studios behind the film, “The filmmakers of FIFTY SHADES OF GREY and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam’s immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey.”

What do you all think? I started watching SOA because Charlie was going to be Christian Grey. Now I'm in love and he's not going to be Christian! Argh! ;)

Who do you think would be a good Christian? My top two choices would be:

Ian Somerhalder
Alexander Skarsgård

I was just reading somewhere (too many articles going around now) that Ian won't be the new CG because EL James had mentioned it in passing at Comic Con or PaleyFest. Something like that. :(

I wasn't a fan of CH as CG UNTIL I started watching SOA and although the look is a tiny bit off, he would have been good. I don't think we're going to find the exact guy because we all have ideas of what he should look like. I have one friend in Sweden who understands the "dark copper hair" to be strawberry blonde. So....
