Charlie Hunnam Drops Out
Of '50 Shades of Grey'

AFTER being cast in the lead role of Christian Grey in the upcoming “50 Shades of Grey” movie, the actor has just confirmed he will not be playing the billionaire role after all.

"The filmmakers of FIFTY SHADES OF GREY and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam’s immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey," said a rep for Universal.

No other reasons where given, but we are sure there is more to it than just a busy schedule. After all you would not accept a role without checking your schedule, right?

After the news of Charlie and Dakota Johnson being cast as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steel in “50 Shades of Grey” the fans weren't happy with the picks. They went as far as organizing a petition urging the studio to hire White Collar hottie Matt Bomer as Christian and Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls) as Anastasia.

Though we would love to see Matt Bomer strip naked in an erotic movie, who do you think should play Christian Grey?
