"Fifty Shades of Grey" fans have already spoken and Charlie Hunnam has what it takes to play Christian Grey. The actor himself has not commented on the high-profile role but his reps have made it clear he has not been cast just yet. While at first he turned down an offer, he is now reconsidering. The Stir reported on August 25, "he may now be reconsidering and was expected to meet with execs yesterday."
With 20 acting credits to his name, Charlie Hunnam has the acting ability need to play Christian Grey. His bad boy appearance throws off many at first but Hollywood can easily fix that. With a little hair dye, clean shave and a nice suit he could be transformed into the mercurial billionaire.
"He has the body, no doubt about it. I could also see him pull off the attitude! He is a really good actor!" -Amanda Kay Hodges
"Oh heck yea! He's just sexy period! Ohhh la la..." -Brandy Harris
"I absolutely think he has the alpha chops to play CG." -Maggy Wolfe
The 33 year-old actor has two films in pre-production but neither will conflict with "Fifty Shades of Grey." And while he is still playing Jax on the hit show "Sons of Anarchy," production for the upcoming season will reportedly end in September. Hunnam has the availability, the look, fan support and even shares a homeland with Author E L James. The UK born actor is also a favorite of Producer Sam Taylor-Johnson, according to Twitch who called him the "producers' prime target."
