Scott Eastwood Rumored To Be One Of Five Actors In Contention For 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'

Is the field narrowing for Charlie Hunnam‘s replacement on “Fifty Shades of Grey“? According to EW, Universal employees are being told a decision is coming within a few weeks (though why this is being announced company wide seems a bit odd), which makes sense if the studio wants to reassure everyone the film won’t face delays. And yet another name has joined the fray of contenders.

According to Just Jared, Scott Eastwood—son of Clint, and rising actor who will be seen next year in “Fury” with Brad Pitt—is reportedly “one of five actors being considered” for the part of Christian Grey. So does that mean one of the recently rumored names—Alexander Skarsgård, Jamie Dornen (“The Fall“), Theo James (“Divergent,” “Underworld: Awakening“), Christian Cooke (the most recent “Romeo And Juliet“), Francois Arnaud (“The Borgias“)—is now out of the running? Maybe?

Whoever gets chosen, there will howls of approval and tears of dismay, so good luck to them. “Fifty Shades of Grey” is still handcuffed to the August 1, 2014 release date.

If j. Dornen is not able to do the second 50 Shades movie, my vote is to have Scott Eastwood.


Most of them are boys, nothing sexy about boys. Alexander Skarsgard is the MAN for the job. Sorry the Dordan chap is too short and scrawny for the job. CG is supposed to be drop dead gorgeous, none here except for Skarsgard fill that bill. And his acting is wonderful. Making a film for adults needs to be cast with one.


If this project had any shot at being decent, they'd pursue (or would be being pursued by) more bankable talent. As it stands, they are going for the cheap talent who can only be served by any project that opens well, no matter how terrible. In short, none of these names could ruin their career by leading in a turkey because they don't actually have careers to ruin yet.

This is going to be awful.


Not a bad way for powder puff to break out.
