Despite the fact that Fifty Shades of Grey is nothing at all like Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind, it is hard not to make comparisons between the two. Gone with the Wind, at least in terms of casting, like E L James S&M saga, had a bevy of female fans who all knew just who should play Mitchell’s male protagonist in the book.
After the surprise announcement that Charlie Hunnam and the studios co-released stating the the Sons of Anarchy actor would not be playing Christian Grey after all, Fifty Shades of Greyfans have been wondering why the change of heart.
Female fans of Fifty Shades of Grey are mourning the news that E L James’ favorite choice to play Christian Grey will not be Robert Pattinson now that Charlie Hunnam has stepped down. And now it looks like Dakota Johnson may join her ex co-star as the filmmakers scramble to find a replacement for their Sons of Anarchy casting choice.
Considering all the outrage that came about when Charlie Hunnam was named as the actor who would portray Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey film, it comes as no real surprise that Hunnam has stepped away from the role. He leaves bondage for the world of motor bikes in the hit show Sons of Anarchy.
