Nooooooo! Seriously gorgeous Charlie Hunnam has backed out of playing Christian Grey in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, apparently because his “Sons of Anarchy” filming scheduling is not allowing him to “adequately prepare” for the role. I sure hope he wasn’t badgered out of playing the character because some fans weren’t pleased with the casting. (“Twilight” diehards weren’t happy with Robert Pattinson being cast as Edward Cullen at first either. But they came around.) Hunnam had previously told Entertainment Weekly,  “There are so many fans of that book and I know that on the surface, I’m probably not what everybody imagined. Because reading is so personal and people bring a character to life in their imagination, they feel ownership over that character. That’s daunting if I allowed myself to think about it too much. I’m taking it very seriously and intend to explore the nature of who this character is, what motivates him — and also dress up nice and look good in those suits.”

Sigh. Such a bummer. I thought he was perfectly unexpected. Back to the drawing board I guess. Who would you like to see replace him as Christian Grey? [Entertainment Weekly]
