Jamie Dornan is set to star as the new Christian Grey.
Dornan replaces Sons of Anarchy Charlie Hunnam who dropped out of the Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation earlier this month.
With Hunnam’s departure from the project, the studio scrambled to find a replacement and rumors swirled on potential candidates with the likes of Matt Bomer, Theo James, Alexander Skarsgard, and Scott Eastwood.
The Irish actor is best known in the U.S. for his role as Sheriff Graham Humbert a.k.a. the Huntsman in ABC's fantasy series Once Upon a Time. He currently stars in the BBC Two's crime drama The Fall as a serial killer, and his most noteworthy screen credits include Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette (2006) opposite Kirsten Dunst. Dornan began his career as a model before falling into acting and dated actress Keira Knightley.
Fifty Shades of Grey follows the racy relationship between college student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey.
Directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, Fifty Shades of Grey has a release date of Aug. 1, 2014.
