The "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie has lost its Christian Grey. According to an Oct. 12 report by Us Weekly, Charlie Hunnam is leaving the movie because his busy schedule shooting "Sons of Anarchy" isn't giving him enough time to prepare to play Grey. So could Scott Eastwood be the perfect guy to replace him?
A lot of fans will probably be looking at Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer again, but they might have the same problem since they're also TV actors. The producers might also consider trying to get some of the other actors that were on their list of favorites, which reportedly included Ryan Gosling, Garrett Hedlund, and Christian Cooke.
But why not go with someone surprising like Scott Eastwood? The son of Clint Eastwood is 27 years old; he's extremely sexy; and he won't have the same problem as Charlie Hunnam since he's not on TV. The actor is also trying to make a name for himself, and the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie might be just what he needs to raise his profile.
Scott is really hot right now, thanks to some sexy shirtless photos that he took for the October issue of Town & Country magazine. The internet kind of freaked out over him after seeing the shots, and he's destined to get even more attention when he stars alongside Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf in the movie "Fury." Shia could probably give Scott a few pointers about shooting sex scenes since the "Transformers" star will have plenty of them in Lars Von Trier's "Nymphomaniac."
Scott Eastwood would also make an interesting choice to play Christian Grey because he'd have something in common with the actress playing Anastasia Steele—Dakota Johnson is also the daughter of a famous actor. "Miami Vice" star Don Johnson hasn't said much about his daughter's decision to play a sex slave, but her famous mother is acting like a pretty proud parent. This isn't that surprising since Melanie Griffith has proved throughout her career that nudity and sex scenes don't scare her.
So would you like to see Clint Eastwood's son as Christian Grey, or are you disappointed that Charlie Hunnam has backed away from playing the billionaire?
