CHARLIE HUNNAM KNOWS PEOPLE DID NOT WANT HIM AS THE LEAD IN 50 SHADES OF GREY, THEY SHOULD HIRE IAN SOMERHALDER AND ALEXIS BLEDEL TO BE THE LEADS, DAKOTA JOHNSON STILL CAN BE IN THE MOVIE AS A SUPPORTING ROLE BUT I SEE THE STUDIO, E.L. JAMES AND THE PRODUCERS ARE IN LOVE WITH DAKOTA, BIG MISTAKE!...

I GUESS BEAUTY IS NOT IMPORTANT TO THEM BECAUSE YOU CAN NEVER COMPARE DAKOTA JOHNSON'S BEAUTY WITH ALEXIS BLEDEL'S BEAUTY, ALEXIS BLEDEL IS GORGEOUSSSSSSSSS PLUS SHE IS LATINA / HISPANIC AND IN THIS CASE THAT'S A PLUS...

Actors use butt doubles, why not a penis double for those all-important close-ups?

Actually, British guys have no problem dropping trou. They're not hung up on nudity. In fact I bet the next actor will be British as well. My guess is he decided that it's not a good career move.

Am I the only one who doesn't actually see the appeal of this man? I think it's all the backlash he got from people online & in magazines because he's not attractive enough to play the part. But all in all lets face it, when the movies out all people are going to do is take the p*ss out of it.
It's going to be some sick load of a crap written by some dirty old woman.

Or... Maybe he didn't want to become a label and ruin his career by staring in a ****ty book to movie softcore. That crap is like the porn version of Twilight. He made the right choice.

Matt Bomer is gay. I don't care what any woman says, she will not be able to wrap her mind around him being the romantic lead in a hetero role. And let's face it, this movie is for the ladies. While he is a good (not great) actor, he kinda ruined his career as a leading man when he came out. Sure, I'll continue to watch his show, but his Prince charming image is pretty much gone.

Reason: he read a few pages of the books.

I have a lot of respect for him for not doing that horrible crap movie. I think this is the best thing he could have done for his career. 50 shades would have made him a laughing stock, a very wealthy one but still nobody would ever give him another serious role.

His butt is very nice, he shows if often on Sons of Anarchy and it's very nice. I think he is gorgeous!
