With Charlie Hunnam out, Universal are scrabbling to find a replacement who’s not only hot enough but ready and willing to get S&M steamy when cameras start rolling in a few year’s time.
Alexander Skarsgard, Christian Cooke and Jamie Dornan (The Fall) have already been rumoured as replacements, and now E! adds in Billy Magnussen and Luke Bracey, while JustJared says Francois Arnaud is in the mix.
None of the new names are strangers to nudity, as Magnussen spent most of his time on stage in the play ‘Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike’ in his underpants, while Luke Bracey spent a lot of time with his shirt off in the Aussie soap Home And Away. Arnaud meanwhile has been seen getting sexy in the Borgias (and going gay in I Killed My Mother).
Take a look at pics of all three below, and see which you’d prefer as the billionaire Christian Grey, who gets into a kinky relationship with the young Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson).
