“Fifty Shades of Grey” has been on the hunt for a new leading man to play Christian Grey ever since actor Charlie Hunnam exited the project just weeks before production.
Now Hunnam is breaking his silence on why he exited the role telling E! that he is focusing on his hit television show “Sons of Anarchy.”
“I've got some family stuff I have to tend to. So when I wrap the show, I am going to go to England and see my people and then I have a film that I am doing with Guillermo [del Toro]. So I am going to go and do that and concentrate on the final seasons of ‘Sons,’” explained Hunnam.
Many names have been rumored to replace Hunnam, such as Jamie Dornan, Scott Eastwood and Alexander Skarsgard, but what about Morgan Freeman?! Showbiz Tonight caught up with the cast of “Last Vegas” including Freeman, Robert DeNiro and Michael Douglas – check out who they think should be up for the role of Christian Grey!
