Fifty Shades of Grey Casting: Alexander Skarsgard or Jamie Dornan to Star?

Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam's abrupt departure from the Fifty Shades of Grey film adaptation has left a leading-man-sized hole in the project — into which other TV hunks could drop, including True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard and Once Upon a Time's Jamie Dornan.

As The Hollywood Reporter touts, Jamie and Alexander are just two of the handsome fellas producers are considering to play kinky billionaire Christian Grey.

Dakota Johnson, meanwhile, is still tied into the project and ready to play Christian's sexual protege, Anastasia Steele.

For his part, Alexander seems game for the role… and prepared! "I have a sex chamber in my basement — my character on True Blood — so I've had training," Alex touted to The Daily Chili in November.

He also talked about the prospect to DMS Productions a few months prior: "For me, step one is always, you know, you read the material, and you're either excited or you're not. You either connect … you're intrigued by the character, or you're not. And before you've done that, you can't say you're excited or dismiss something. And I haven't read the books, either, so all I know is that they're very, very popular, obviously!"

THR also reports that Universal and Focus are also eying Christian Cooke (Romeo and Juliet) and Theo James (Divergent) for the juicy gig.
