Charlie's out! Who should be Christian Grey?

NEED TO KNOW
  • Producers say actor Charlie Hunnam is pulling out of 'Fifty Shades' movie
  • Now the big question is who will play Christian Grey?

It seems that some "Fifty Shades of Grey" fans may have gotten what they wanted. Charlie Hunnam is out as brooding billionaire Christian Grey, and the role is now up for grabs.

In a statement, Universal Pictures says, "The filmmakers of 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and Charlie Hunnam... have agreed to find another male lead ... given his busy TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey." But according to The Hollywood Reporter, Hunnam was also "overwhelmed" by the media and fan frenzy that followed his casting.

HLN's Susan Hendricks talked with entertainment journalist David Caplan about the announcement.
