Charlie Hunnam After Fifty Shades of Grey Announcement

Here's Your Christian Grey in Sweats

Charlie Hunnam took a flight out of LAX yesterday, just as E L James made headlines by announcing that the British actor had been cast as Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie. He was dressed casually in sweats and a t-shirt as he dragged a massive bag through the airport, perhaps unaware that he had become a household name in just a few hours with the big movie announcement. Charlie winning the coveted role of Christian has been met with plenty of outrage by fans, mostly due to the fact that many people were hoping that Ian Somerhalder, Robert Pattinson, or Matthew Bomer would end up playing Grey on the big screen.

Charlie wasn't the only actor who was cast in the highly anticipated flick — Dakota Johnson, the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, was announced as winning the lead female role of Ana Steele. See how Charlie and Dakota compare to Christian and Ana before you make up your decision about the big casting news.

I am a big fan of SOA and Fifty Shades of Grey series, have waited for the movie to be made. Great choice!! Charlie drips of sex appeal and looks sexy as hell in a suit and sweats! Great actor and will be great in the movie, totally looking forward to it. Dakota has the beautiful and still innocent look, she will do great also! Excited about it and looking forward to it next year. If you don't like it, shut up because you'll be watching and loving it!

Just have to say that Charlie is the best in hollywood. If fans are "outraged" It should be at themselves for thinking that R Patts is a better choice. I am all about Charlie nailing this! He has class, skills, and the hot looks to pull it all off. I never had a reason to finish the last two books. Bet your sweet ass I do now! You go Charlie <---- This Jersey girl supports you in all that you do. I am working on my novel ahheemm one day I may need a male lead for the movie adapt... Lets do this thing! haha...
