The role of Christian Grey is up for grabs again as Charlie Hunnam has backed out at the last minute. Universal Pictures released a statement saying that the hunky 33 year old actor and the filmmakers of the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey agreed that Hunnam's busy filming schedule on the set of Sons of Anarchy doesn't leave him adequate time to prepare for the part. According to the Hollywood Reporter, however, two sources site a different reason: the actor was overwhelmed with the media frenzy and fevered fan attention that swiftly descended upon him after he signed on to the steamy blockbuster.
The lovely Dakota Johnson is still set to play the niave but experimental Anastasia Steele in the film, which is supposed to hit theatres August 2014.
Now that we're searching for a new Christian Grey, which actors do you hope will throw their respective hats in the ring for this role?
