New Fifty Shades trailer whets Charlie Hunnam’s appetite

One person who is excited about the first look at the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer is Christian Grey first choice, Charlie Hunnam. Speaking at Fox’s Television Critics press tour, he revealed that his wetting his pants to see it. He said,

“I’m just really excited to see it. I was just really, really invested and wanted to work with (director) Sam (Taylor-Johnson) and play that character. I’m really, really curious.”

The Sons of Anarchy star, was not impressed by the “mummy porn” genre that has been tagged on to bestselling novelist, E.L. James’s work.

“I think people really do that book a disservice when they reduce it to that type of talk,” he said. “What (E.L. James) actually created is a really sophisticated dynamic and presented it in a package which was accessible to people who normally would be terrified of that subject … Actually what she did was pretty brilliant.”

Hunnam, 34, exited the “coveted” role due to “family stuff” and the possibility of lowering his acting reputation. Well, in so many words that’s what it seems like, with all the films, and hookups in England, and wrapping up the last season of Sons. Sounds like excuses.

“I am doing good. I am just really concentrating on work. It’s been a really busy time,” adding, “Like I said, 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.”

He did admit that he walking away from the part was “pretty heartbreaking.” Aww, when you realised how much money is being pumped into the project, that stuff can be pretty tough.

“I don’t think people have had unchaperoned access to me since all of this went on … the CliffsNotes were exactly what we said. I couldn’t do it because of (the) schedule. It was as simple as that.”

The actor even said he would be willing to have his audition tape be included as a DVD extra for curious fans. Chill, dude.

Hunnam said Marie Antoinette star, Jamie Dornan is “probably a lot better looking and a lot smoother” than he is.

“I would’ve brought a certain rugged charm to (the role) but believe me, he’s going to do just fine.”

Whips, chains and handcuffs: The “better looking and smooth”Jamie Dornan

To be fair, we would rather see Charlie Hunnam as Jax Teller any day, than the sadomasochistic billionaire, Christian Grey. Or would we..?

Get those fluffy handcuffs at the ready for 2015, as Fifty Shades is scheduled to open on Valentine’s Day.
