Taryn Manning: Charlie Hunnam Is “Perfect” For Christian in Fifty Shades of Grey

Cue the backlash to the backlash!

Charlie Hunnam was recently cast as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey film series, and some fans immediately cried foul. But Charlie has plenty of support out there, including from his Sons of Anarchy co-star Taryn Manning.

The Orange Is the New Black actress talked to E! News about working with British Charlie, whom she calls a "total babe." (She's right!) She praised his work ethic and old-fashioned, chivalrous manners — and she said she was shocked to hear some people aren't happy with Charlie as Christian.

"Why? Do you realize every single woman that is my friend is, like, 'Tell me everything about Charlie.' All the time. He is kind of like how girls feel about Eminem or Justin Timberlake. He is just a heartthrob, so I don't understand why anyone would question that casting decision," Taryn said. "And if you watch the show, he is so noble and strong. That's weird to me. I don't understand the backlash. I don't agree. I think he is perfect for that part!"

The man is just straight-up sexy. Give him time to prove it and he probably will. If you watch him in Fifty Shades next August and you don't get the lady shivers you wanted, ask for your money back at the box office! Until then, go rent SOA and see if it doesn't make you a little more optimistic.
