Jamie Dornan, the Right Person to Play Christian Grey?

Jamie Dornan to play Christian Grey
Do you approve?

Jamie Dornan has taken over Charlie Hunnam’s role of playing Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, but is he really the right person for the role?

Jamie Dornan captured the hearts of many with his appearance in the ABC series Once Upon A Time. Jamie Dornan played the role of Sheriff Graham and was present for the majority of the show, he even came back for the season finally. In March of 2012 it was announced that Jamie Dornan was casted to star in the new Northern Irish drama known as The Fall. Jamie Dornan plays the role of serial killer Paul Spector in the city of Belfast. Before the end of the first season the show was renewed for a second season. Are these roles giving Jamie Dornan the kind of experience needed to play a successful Christian Grey in the new Fifty Shades of Grey movie?

You may also unknowingly be familiar with Jamie Dornan due to the work he has done while modeling for Calvin Klein. He was the stud with Eva Mendes and Kate Moss. If that doesn’t ring a bell then maybe you’ve seen him model for Armani, Aquascutum, or even Dior.

Does Jamie Dornan have the potential to successfully portray the character Christian Grey? Is he sexy enough? Gentle enough? Rough enough? Smart enough? Is he a good enough replacement for Charlie Hunnam or was Charlie Hunnam not as cut out for the role as Jamie Dornan? Charlie Hunnam dropped out of playing the role of Chrisitian Grey because he announced that he is heading home to be with his family after the recent death of his father. Charlie Hunnam returning to England will also mark the end of his hit show Sons of Anarchy. It is still too early to know for sure, but as far as the visual appeal goes, Jamie Dornan may be more suited for the role of Chrisitian Grey than Charlie Hunnam.

It goes without saying that this movie will steamy, which depends on having a visually appealing cast. If you are not sure that  Jamie Dornan has what it takes, or if you think he does and you want to see more of his potential, a picture slide show (video) of Jamie Dornan and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is at the bottom of this article for you. Keep in mind that these pictures are pretty risky and may not be appropriate for all.

Keep in mind that Jamie Dornan is 31 and still going strong. Those that have worked with him have not only commented on his attractive stature but also his charm and personality that many find to be easy to get along with. That being said, there is a lot to take in here, and if Jamie Dornan can provide for Fifty Shades of Grey the way that he can here, maybe he really is the right person to play Christian Grey.
