Jamie Dornan, who is best known for playing the sheriff in Once Upon a Time, will replace the recently dropped out Charlie Hunnam in the lead role of Christian Grey in the highly anticipated adaptation of the best selling novel Fifty Shades of Grey. So far, the fan reception has been good and welcoming.
According to Variety, Dornan has been a model for Calvin Klein, Armani and Christian Dior. So the 31-year-old Irish actor already has exposure that will bode well for such a project with sexual subject matter.
E.L. James took to Twitter to confirm Dornan's role as Christian:

Hunnam did speak out about dropping out of Fifty Shades of Grey, telling E! News, "I am doing good I'm just trying to stay focused and stay positive and keep trying to do a good job at work and be with my family."
With Hunnam out and Dornan in, do you think the new movie will suffer or get more attention?
