Jamie Dornan, Fifty Shades of Grey star and Academy Award winner? If you believe the screenwriter of the upcoming film, he should soon go by that name.
Kelly Marcel, who penned the upcoming Fifty Shades adaptation of E.L. James' erotic novel, says Dornan's performance is, without a doubt, Oscar worthy.
"Apparently Jamie is great at being soft and hard at the same time," Marcel said, stealing a phrase from Fifty Shades. "Which is hard to do for an actor!"
Dornan's presence and versatility as the film's lead is so impressive that it deserves an award, according to Marcel, who added, "He's going to get an Oscar!"
It's hard to tell if she's serious, but she's clearly a big fan.
Marcel believes his turn as S&M-loving Christian Grey is powerful, nuanced and spectacular, she said during a Q&A on the Aslan's Writer's Room series.
