Fifty Shades Of Grey‘s smouldering lead is up for grabs again and Irish hottie Jamie Dornan has been named as the frontrunner for the steamy role.
The former Calvin Klein model is being eyed for powerful protagonist Christian Grey after he reportedly impressed the movie’s casting directors.
And if you feel like you’ve seen his face before but aren’t sure where – the stubbly sexpot is currently starring in BBC crime series The Fall, plus Jamie used to be the undeniably hot arm candy of English rose Keira Knightley.
Joining the coveted list of Christian contendors, the 31-year-old is pitted alongside Magic Mike’s pretty boy Matt Bomer, Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling and Brit boys Theo James and Christian Cook.
Blonde beefcake Charlie Hunnam, who was originally cast as the sexy CEO, quit the raunchy lead role over the weekend after work clashes and an apparent crisis of confidence.
But we’re certainly not complaining. If Jamie ends up being his red hot replacement we think we might have to take a cold shower then pre-book our tickets a year in advance because we’re a little bit in love already.
