In case you haven’t clicked on the 800 pulling out pun headlines this morning, Charlie Hunnam has dropped out of Fifty Shades of Grey which I’m sure had nothing to do with the insane online shit-fest over his casting and everything to do with the fact that he was about to make a movie based on thinly-veiled Twilight fan fiction. Via HuffPost:

Universal Pictures and Focus Features announced Saturday that the actor who was to play Christian Grey will depart the project. The studio called it a mutual decision because Hunnam’s preparation time was limited by his television schedule. He stars in the FX series “Sons of Anarchy.”
It’s an abrupt and embarrassing switch for a high-profile film. Fans of E L James‘ erotic best-seller are eagerly awaiting the movie adaptation, which will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson.
Dakota Johnson remains in the co-starring role of Anastasia Steele. A replacement will be sought for Hunnam, who last month said he initially turned down the role.

When asked what it felt to pull out of the project, Charlie responded, “Well, I was already in character, so I just pretended it was a tuft of pubic hair. Or a tampon, whatever. Honestly, I couldn’t finish this thing, and I’m on a show where my character beats porn stars and spits in their faces. You gotta have standards.”

  1. inkydinky

    smart move, charlie. this movie is going to be a BOMB

  2. Either Dakota Johnson does some freaky sex scenes, its not going to sell either the Chick Flick market or horny teens. A trillion times better check out ” Fifty Shades Of Dylan Ryan.” Aaaaah porn parodies.

  3. given how much they were ready to pay him, can you imagine how of a mess this project is that he actually changed his mind after being cast?

  4. Cock Dr

    Bring in the next fresh faced Hollywood boy victim, this one ran away.

  5. Colin

    Keep in mind this guy did fairly NSFW gay sex scenes for Queer as Folk when he was younger but no, THIS is too much.

  6. Good move. Whoever plays that part is going to make Robert Pattinson’s life seem like a walk in the not-full-of-delusional-psycho-bitches park.

  7. Wow

    If you posted during weekends you’d know this is old news.
    You should be wiser with your “work”.

  8. “…pulling out pun headlines this morning, Charlie Hunnam has dropped out ofFifty Shades of Grey…”

    Did he “pull out” or did he “drop out”? Pulled out could possibly be considered a manly option; dropped out is an entirely different problem that might best be brought to the attention of a physician.

    Good, he’s got a face like a smashed crab.

  10. “… It’s an abrupt and embarrassing switch for a high-profile film …”

    the film: does this switch make me look embarrassing?
    all of us: No, YOU make you look embarrassing!

  11. Beer For thought

    ….I don’t exactly remember his character doing that in SOA? Anyways, glad I won’t have to watch that shit show now, him naked was literally the only reason I was going to.

    • Fourth season, that porn star chick banged Opie after he found out his wife was secretly taking birth control pills while they were trying to have a baby. End of the episode, Jax beats the shit out of the porn star and spits on her when he’s done.
