Ladies and ... okay, this one's mostly just for the ladies, your new Christian Grey has arrived.

Now that Charlie Hunnam has bowed out of the raunchy role in "Fifty Shades of Grey"— to be a family guy and stuff, supposedly — a new hunk has reportedly been recruited from the TV actor crowd.

Joining the kinky "50 Shades" brigade is none other than "Once Upon a Time" and "The Fall" star Jamie Dornan, the British babe who'd emerged as a contender for the dirty billionaire's suit soon after Hunnam exited the pic.

And so far, there aren't any petitions to ouster the guy from his bossy throne (the day is still young), and we have a few ideas as to why that might be. Get More »

Charlie Hunnam Finally Explains Going Soft on '50 Shades of Grey'

There's been a lot of speculation over why Charlie Hunnam decided not to put on a slick suit and pick up the whip for "Fifty Shades of Grey" — especially since one peek at his "Queer as Folk" days proved he's, uh, not at all shy about gettin' busy for the cameras — but now the actor himself has finally spoken up with his side of things.

Apparently, it wasn't all those ravenous anti-him-as-Christian Grey petitioners or that supposedly bogus paycheck which made him flaccid on the pic, but rather his obligation to be a good family man? What. Get More »

In Charlie Hunnam We Thrust: NSFW Proof That He's Good for 'Fifty Shades'

Showtime Showtime

Chances are, when you think of the newly-crowned lead in "Fifty Shades of Grey" Charlie Hunnam, your mind immediately goes to leather, bikes and beards a la "Sons of Anarchy" because that show's what's made him a somebody in the States. With only that in mind, it's no wonder fans are raising the petition pitchforks over Hunnam taking the reins — both proverbially and literally in some instances — for "Fifty Shades."

But like his sex slave-to-be leading lady Dakota Johnson, Mr. Hunnam's also got a little screen history of gettin' down and dirty, especially when you look at his old semi-voyeuristic work on the U.K. TV series "Queer As Folk."

Here we boil down a few of his most relevant hot and heavy moments from "Q.A.F." to give you a gander at some of Hunnam's humina humina-ness before he goes and suits up as your favorite naughty billionaire Christian Grey.

Warning: This is totally NSFW, people.
