The frenzied search to find a new male lead for the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ movie after Charlie Hunnam dropped out is over. Variety reports that Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan has been cast as Christian Grey in the upcoming film adaptation of E.L. James’ erotic novel.

‘Sons of Anarchy’ star Hunnam bailed from the project Oct. 12 over increasing concerns about the massive media attention he’d receive in the iconic role of the kinky billionaire.

Producers scrambled to find a new star to play opposite Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, raising many fans’ hopes that their favorites would finally be cast. But Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder supporters are going to have to make their peace with an official Christian Grey yet again.

Dornan, 31, who notably played the Huntsman on ABC’s ‘Once Upon a Time,’ is a former Calvin Klein model — good news, since we expect to see him in his underwear on the big screen very soon!
