#TaniaOnTheScene- Jamie Dornanhas been chosen as the new Christian Grey for Universal and Focus’ adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Negotiations with the actor now are underway.
Charlie Hunnam infamously backed out of the project a week and a half ago, setting off a feverish pursuit to find his replacement.
The U.K.-based Dornan was first revealed as a contender for the role of kinky billionaire Grey by THR on Oct. 14. He is the star of the U.K. series The Fall and might be best-known to U.S. audiences for playing the Huntsman in ABC’s Once Upon a Time. Born in Northern Ireland, he’s a former Calvin Klein model and dated Keira Knightley for two years.
Dornan, 31, actually was contacted before Hunnam officially dropped out, and tested Friday opposite female lead Dakota Johnson for director Sam Taylor-Johnson, author EL James and producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti. Tony-nominated actor Billy Magnussen also tested, as did Francois Arnaud from The Borgias, according to sources.
#TaniaOnTheScene - Before she was famous, Angelina Jolie still looked the part as a 16-year-old beauty.
The bee-stung lips, bedroom eyes and long dark locks were there from the beginning. But these pictures of Angelina Jolie, taken when she was 16, highlight just what has changed since she became a star.
Though she clearly missed out on puppy fat, the teenage Miss Jolie did have rounded hips and soft fleshy arms… and she always had that raw star quality.
