Finally !!! Support for Charlie. I hope he doesn't back out of this role. He is perfect for CG.
People are haters. I love that he got the role.. I will actually attempt to read the books and will also be in anticipation for the movie.. MmMMMMm!!! I think I will actually enjoy this.
Honestly I wasn't going to even see the film until I heard Charlie Hunnam was in it. He is gorgeous and a great actor.
Whatever your opinion of Hunnam in the Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation, there's no need to worry about the movie sticking to the erotically charged content of the novel. Screenwriter Kelly Marcel promised plenty of raunchy sex in the movie, which is due to be released on August 1, 2014.
