I have to be honest, I haven't read the book, never got the hype, but there sure has been a lot of gossip surrounding the two lead characters. The new male lead may fit the part best, after all, he used to model underwear.


Jamie Dornan has been chosen as the new Christian Grey. Charlie Hunnam was originally slated for the role, but backed out earlier this month due to family issues.

Dornan will play opposite Dakota Johnson, the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. Johnson will play the role of Anastassia Steele. Production begins next week and the much awaited movie is expected in theaters August 1, 2014.
