Jamie Dornan Cast as Christian Grey in 50 Shades of Grey

Jamie Dornan

Don’t worry, 50 Shades of Grey fans — a Christian Grey replacement has been found! After Charlie Hunnam dropped out from playing the coveted role, Irish actor Jamie Dorman has been cast in the film. He’ll star alongside Dakota Johnson, who will still portray the sexually inexperienced, recent college grad Anastasia Steele.

In the States, the 31-year-old is best known for his role on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, and he’s also modeled for Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and more.

Charlie was originally given the role of Christian, but left the film two weeks ago due mostly to scheduling issues. Now that he’s been replaced, filming will begin shortly, and the movie is still slated for an Aug. 1, 2014 release date.
