Jamie Dornan Cast As New Christian Grey In 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Just over a week after leading man Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the big screen adaptation of 'Fifty Shades of Grey', producers have found a replacement.

British actor and 'Once Upon a Time' alum Jamie Dornan will star as Christian Grey, the billionaire playboy with a BDSM fetish, in the adaptation of the best selling novel.

Dornan, a former Calvin Klein model, has starred in the British series 'The Fall' but he's best known to American audiences for playing the Huntsman in ABC's fairytale drama.

The 31-year-old actor had been linked to the project before Hunnam officially dropped out. Producers decided he was their man after he read with Dakota Johnson, who plays Anastasia Steele, last Friday.

"Stow your twitchy palms ladies... our man is here," novel author E.L. James confirmed Thursday on Twitter. "Welcome to Team Fifty Jamie Dornan1."

Those behind the film were scrambling to find a replacement to avoid a delay of the November 1 production date. The film has a release date of August 1, 2014.
