Finally, the sexual fiend has been found. ABC’s Once Upon a Time star Jamie Dornan will replace Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey film, Variety reported Wednesday evening.

The 31-year-old Dornan plays Sheriff Graham Humbert in Once Upon a Time. Dakota Johnson will co-star as Anastasia Steele with Sam Taylor-Johnson directing.

Audiences protested the original casting of the relatively unknown Hunnam and Johnson. Though Universal said that Hunnam’s departure a month after being attached to the project was due to scheduling conflicts while filming the show Sons of Anarchy and his upcoming movie Crimson Peak, rumors swirled that the actor had doubts about the role.

The producers went to this loser after they could not get Skarsgard. Bad script is rumored. It is the only reason Skarsgard would not do the film. He has wanted to do it from the start, saying he would love to be CG IF the script was good, IF Money would not be an issue as he makes Indies and there is very little money there. No the script must stink, as does this guy.

I don't like the casting either. I picture Christian Grey as an older, more distinguished gentleman, on the idea of  Richard Gere.

Yeah, I don't like the casting either. I like him as an actor, but he isn't christian grey.
I don't like the casting for Ana either.

Too bad, the film had promise. Casting this runt is a fail, he is too short and scrawny for the role of an impressive TALL character.  Hell they will have to put the girl in a hole to make him look taller. His acting is poor as well.
