Jamie Dornan Auditions For Fifty Shades of Grey; Will He Get the Role?

by at . Comments

Although producers have yet to decide on who will play Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, it appears one actor has moved to the forefront.

Once Upon a Time star Jamie Dornan is the frontrunner, and has auditioned for the part, according to new reports. The actor had a "very good read," in fact.

Two relative unknowns, Billy Magnussen and Luke Bracey, are also believed to be under consideration, as is True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard.

It was shocking news when Charlie Hunnam bailed on Fifty Shades of Grey, but fans of the E.J. James book seem to be breathing a sigh of relief.

While Dornan's reported audition hasn't landed him the part just yet, and he may not be ideal in some fans' eyes either, Hunnam was never a popular fit.

The mere idea that the 50 Shades sweepstakes are up and running again is more exciting than Charlie's casting was, which itself is a telling sign.

Right now, it looks like Dornan's to lose ... but stay tuned.

What do you think? Should Jamie play Christian Grey?
