After Hunnam was cast as Christian Grey in the upcoming book adaption, the Fifty Shades fans grabbed their
Despite claiming it was due to a scheduling conflict, who can blame the poor guy for backing out of the Christian Grey role and running scared. The question is, who would dare take this role on now? All the hunky actors in Hollywood will be shaking in their space boots.
Here's the evidence:
After the announcement came that Charlie had quit, the organiser of the petition to cast Matt Bomer (currently at 87,432 votes) posted this:
'I'M SO FREAKING OUT LIKE YOU GUYS I CANT BELIEVE THIS I'M SO HAPPY AND I DONT KNOW WHAT TO SAY IT'S LIKE A MIRACLE I DONT KNOW GUYS PLZ NOW MORE THAN EVER WE MUST JOIN FORCES UNTIL ARRIVE 100 K SIGNATURES WE WILL DO ALL THE POSSIBLE TO SEE MATT LIKE GREY DONT GIVE UPPPPPP XXXXX'
With a fellow supporter wrote, 'Because Christian is supposed to be sexy and mysterious. Charlie Hunnam looks dirty and very unappealing. I will not be watching the film with this cast. Which is sad because I have waited forever to see this, but I will not be watching someone who does not fit the character.'
Forever, or a year, but who's counting? On Twitter, people we're equally outspoken:
