Christian Grey Reportedly Won’t Be Played By Anyone But Jamie Dornan

Christian Grey has become a household name since the Fifty Shades Of Grey series was released, and now that the books have been adapted for the silver screen, that name is being thrown about more than ever. Before the film’s stars were cast, Sons Of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam was poised to take the role of domineering businessman Grey, but he eventually dropped out due to scheduling conflicts, and while some fans of the book were wary of Jamie Dornan when he nabbed the role, he has proven himself practically made for it. The movie has garnered astronomical box office numbers since its Valentine’s Day release, and now the question on everyone’s mind is whether Dornan will come back for a potential sequel.
Although a second film hasn’t been officially announced, Dornan’s reps told Us Weekly that he would be more than happy to step back into Christian Grey’s highly-polished shoes.
“Jamie is delighted that the film is breaking box office records worldwide and whilst the studio has not made any formal announcements about sequels, he is looking forward to making the next film,” his rep said in a statement.
Dornan said in a recent Details interview that he was scared of how loyal fans of the books might react once the film came out, noting that sometimes superfans are very involved when a film adaptation is made.
“I almost don’t want to put this out there into the ether, but I fear I’ll get murdered, like John Lennon, by one of those mad fans at the premiere. Because a lot of people are very angry that I’m playing this character. And I’m a father now, and a husband. I don’t want to die yet,” he said.

Though the books–and subsequently, the film–are well known for racy subject matter, some viewers think there’s a lot more to the story than kinky sex. As one reviewer wrote, Christian Grey is a man who was sexually abused as a child and, therefore, is looking for fulfillment as an adult while simultaneously pushing intimacy away.
Fifty Shades of Grey is not a movie about kinky sex. There is hardly anything sexual about the movie. It is about the abuse of power, and its tragic aftermath. It is about a wealthy, handsome young man at the peak of his manhood being incapable of developing a meaningful relationship with a young woman who tries everything (including becoming somewhat of a sex slave) to get to his soul,”

Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Review

I don't want to spoil a lot, so ill just give ratings with a brief description on certain elements of this so-called "film".

Acting; 1/10. The acting was misplaced, awkward.. not to look at. At least convince us you're an intense guy, Mr. Grey.

Plot: 1/10. that wasn't a plot for a normal movie, it was a plot for soft-core porn.. which had as terrible acting in it as real porn.

Camera work/scenery/etc. 7/10 for what it is.. great camera work i guess and good scenery

Romance; 2/10. I've seen the notebook... that's romance. This is a poor attempt to romance. It tries to tell you they're madly in love, but it's just a weird sexual relationship.

Drama: 1/10. there is no thrill.. no intense things going on. There is no drama in this soft-core-erotic-drama.

"The deeds" 10/10.. they did it. so.. can't give it any lower points than this.

Overall, it's was horrible acted, plot-less, non-romantic nor drama movie about a girl being horny and the guy doing an attempt of BDSM, which comes down to.. soft-core.. almost nothing different than normal sex with bondage.

We made a classy movie': Jamie Dornan arrives in Berlin as he hits back at criticism over lack of sex in Fifty Shades Of Grey

Despite reviews complaining of a lack of realistic sex in Fifty Shades Of Grey, Jamie Dornan has said he thinks they made a 'classy movie'.
The actor spoke to Stylist magazine about the highly-anticipated film based on E.L. James' best-selling 'mummy porn' novel, in which he plays the S&M loving businessman Christian Grey.
I think we’ve made a classy movie,' Jamie, 32, explains.

Promotional tour: Jamie Dornan landed at Tegel airport in Berlin, Germany on Wednesday, wearing a casual jacket and green beanie hat
'Sam [Taylor-Johnson] provides a massive element of sophistication to the project.'
The biggest criticism of the film so far has been that there is a lack of nudity as well as realistic scenes of the throes of sadomasochistic passion.

Writing in USA Today, critic Claudia Puig said bluntly: 'Those looking for hot, kinky sex will be disappointed. Fewer than 15 of the movie's 125 minutes feature sex scenes.
'Discussion of contracts and objections over line items outweigh erotica. Even the graphic nudity grows numbing.'
Keeping a low profile: The Fall actor tried to go incognito as he walked through the airport but was mobbed by a crowd of eager fans
On Wednesday morning Jamie touched down at Tegel airport in Berlin, Germany, ahead of the Berlinale premiere of the film.

Jamie has been hot on the promotional trail for the racy Sam Taylor-Johnson directed movie, which is scheduled for release just before Valentine's Day on February 13.
The Fall star has been forced to adjust to the heightened fame the high-profile role has afforded him in recent months.
Jamie's outing comes just after he admitted he's wracked with insecurities when it comes to his body. 

Insecure: Jamie , pictured above as Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades movie, admits he suffers from 'major hang-ups' when it comes to his body
Despite boasting a ripped torso and matinee idol looks, the Northern Irish hunk reveals he still sees himself as the 'skinny kid' of his youth.
Speaking to the Irish Independent, he confessed: 'I think I am like anyone, I have massive hang-ups about my physical appearance.
'I was always fighting against stuff when I was a kid. I always felt skinny and small. Now, I'm 32... I have the same insecurities when I was a kid and when I see an image of myself, all I see is this skinny kid and I don't like it.

Jamie on the cover of DT Downtown Magazine (Spain - February 2015) - New Pictures + New Interview

What do you think about the book?

The first time I knew they were going to do this movie I didn't think I could be a part of it. But I thought this could be a good oportunity so I recorded a video in London with a scene of another movie and I sent it. When I finally read the book, I thought I could play this guy.

What do you think Dakota brings to Ana’s character? 

I didn’t know her before filming this movie, but the first time I saw her I noticed it. She is young and she has a vulnerability that is very credible, but also she is very strong and that makes her interpretation to be very realistic. At the same time, she is very funny so she is perfect for this role. There is a lot of humor in the books/film.

What was your greatest concern when playing this character? 

I think that it was the fact that I only have one month to prepare myself before starting shooting the movie. That’s not enough to play the leading role of this type of huge film.

 This should be a great challenge for the actor… 

Yes, because he has a very complex character with so many different sides. And also, you should add his specific physical appearance and the way he keeps fit.

What was your reaction when you knew you were going to be Christian Grey? 

I remember I was very tired. I just came back home from LA. My wife was sleeping upstairs but I was awake because I knew they were going to call me that night -I didn't know the hour-. Later, Sam called me and I found it really amazing.

What can you say about Sam Taylor Johnson? 

She is wonderful, she has became a very close friend to my wife and me. She has a very good quality that makes her an amazing director: she has the ability to create a comfortable atmosphere when filming “intense” scenes.

How do you handle the pressure to bring these famous books to the big screen? 

As there are millions of people who have read them, you feel that you’re working with a lot of different opinions. It’s difficult to not feel anxious and bring this feeling to the set. But Sam has the ability to make you forget everything and concentrate yourself in what is coming, doing the best we could do. I will be lying if I say I didn’t feel that pressure but at the same time I found it liberating.


When we read a book, we have our own idea about how the characters are. 100 millions of people have read these books and it’s impossible to satisfy every single Christian Grey fan. I only tried to focus on doing the best I could.

Do you see yourself in him? 

You always have to find something in common with the character you’re playing. Sometimes you have —or you know someone with- a similar experience… That is very difficult with Christian Grey because I don't know anyone like him. However, we both have suffered the loss of a loved  one.

Do you see him as a villain? 

 I see him as a social misunderstood person that exerts himself to fit into society because of the kind of lives he wishes to lead.

One of the most important characters in the book is Christian’s adoptive mother, played by Marcia Gay Harden. 

Yes, because she has only shown him love. Compared to his early age, she has given him a stable foundation for his life. Marcia is an incredible actress, I’m her fan. It’s amazing to work with her. She is very normal and doesn’t take things seriously but at the same time she knows how to get ready when starting shooting a scene.

What can you say about Luke Grimes and Rita Ora, “the Grey’s brothers”? 

Luke is brilliant playing the role of a brother that has a relaxed attitude and enjoys having fun. Rita is also very funny. I think people will like them.

How was the experience of shooting in Vancouver? 

 It’s my third job there so I’ve just spent one year of my life in Vancouver. It’s a great place that I know very well. Definitely, I’d like to work there again because the food is really good.
