The internet is abuzz with reaction to the recent news that Jamie Dornan (aka Once Upon a Time’s dearly departed Sheriff Graham) will be replacing Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey film adaptation. How does The Originals’ Phoebe Tonkin (Hayley) feel about casting the decision? Read on to find out!
“He's no Owen Wilson, but I'm pretty okay with Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey,” Phoebs tweeted yesterday, echoing our support for the relatively unknown British heartthrob. OK, we may be a little more enthusiastic about it, and we didn’t include Owen Wilson on any of our dream casting lists, but we’re pretty much on the same page here!
Perhaps the Aussie actress was as big a fan of Jamie on OUAT Season 1 as sexy lawman Sheriff Graham. Or, maybe, she admired his awesomely unsettling work as a serial killer in British drama, The Fall. Whatever the reason, we’re glad she’s on board with the casting even though ex-Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder (Damon) didn’t get the role. There are just too many sexy, supernatural genre television stars to choose from!
Are you excited to see Jamie in the role? What do you think about Phoebe’s dream-casting of Owen Wilson as Christian Grey? Sound off in the comments below!
Catch the next episode of The Originals on Tuesday, October 29, 2013, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW, followed by Supernatural.
