LOS ANGELES — A long film résumé is not a requirement to play the part of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, but a scruffy blond beard might be. The Irish-born actor Jamie Dornan, like departed star Charlie Hunnam the owner of that aforementioned hirsute flourish, has been cast as the male lead in the adaptation of E.L. James’ best seller.
Variety first reported the news Wednesday evening.
Dornan, 31, has some screen credits to his name, most notably as Sheriff Graham Humbert in the prime-time ABC fairy-tale series Once Upon a Time.
