The REAL Frontrunners To Replace Charlie Hunnam In 'Fifty Shades'!

So we've told you (and shown you) who we think should be considered as replacements for Charlie Hunnam in the role of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades Of Grey, but now The Hollywood Reporter says they have a list of the actual finalists! 

Is there any overlap with our list? See which names THR's sources say are close to making the final cut!

Jamie Dornan. The actor who appeared on the first season of Once Upon A Time and now stars in BBC's The Fall isn't a name we've been hearing a lot, but he certainly looks the part! Word is he's a strong contender. (He can contend for a lot of things with us.)


Alexander Skarsgard. What is there to say that hasn't been said about the Viking god?! Though the True Blood star may technically be little old for the part at 37 (we believe Christian's supposed to be about ten years younger), we'd definitely be willing to overlook it. Oh, we'll overlook it. (Added bonus--Skarsgard clearly has no inhibitions when it comes to his body or sexual material.)


Theo James. Underworld star Theo was on the original list of possible contenders and sources say the team behind Fifty Shades are giving that list a second look. Meanwhile, we're looking at his lips. 


Christian Cooke. We don't know too much about the British Magic City star, but....

...there's something about that smirk. 

And there you have it, Instincters. Per The Hollywood Reporter:

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the list of possible replacements includes Jamie Dornan of the U.K. series The Fall and Alexander Skarsgard of True Blood. The studio also is revisiting its initial list of possible contenders, including Theo James and Christian Cooke.

Will one of these gentlemen get the coveted role of Christian Grey? Which man among them is your pick??


Theo james!!! :P hmmmm those lips... Lol

Matt bomer is Christian!


CHARLIE HUNNAM!! i want you back please.

Jamie Dornan, definitely needs to be someone that is newer to the scene and has not been over exposed. I think it would add to the essence of the character.

Can we please have a man who does not look like a gay pin up boy? YUK.

Cam Gigandet was and will be my #1 pick for the part!! 

Scott Eastwood (Reeves)

Matt Bomer all the way!! Gay or not he can pull it off! Christian Grey is described in the book as being breathtakingly beautiful. 

Matt bomer is beautiful and a great actor.

I really think Scott Eastwood fits the look & would make a GREAT Christian Grey. In my opinion. .. better than the men on this list!


Matt Bomer!

All of the above!

Of all these guys, Christian Cooke would seem the best...

I think Alexander Skaarsgard would be a good fit if I can't have who I want.

Alexander Skaarsgard

Theo James or Jamie Dornan. I thought Jamie was super sexy in the once upon a time series and I'd love to see fifty shades with him


why look anywhere; James Franco.

Yes. Franco is probably the most beautiful, straight man in Hollywood today.

Theo James!! Good Lord.. Ohh yes!

Christian Cooke!! Just the right amount of "beautiful" and those eyes....

True blood guy!!

Theo James' lips... yum lol
