The guy who plays Christian Grey says he does in fact want to play Christian Grey again.

Looks like we’ve still got Jamie Dornan as our Christian Grey after all…

UPDATE:

For anyone slightly excited at the prospect that we’d have a new (and improved) Christian Grey for the Fifty Shades sequels, prepare to be as disappointed as Jamie Dornan looked throughout the whole two-hour film.

Jamie’s rep has confirmed that the Northern Irish-born actor won’t be pulling out, and Jamie’s not too happy about the rumours that he was prepared to hang up his whip and silk ties.

“Jamie is delighted that the film is breaking box office records worldwide and whilst the studio has not made any formal announcements about sequels, he is looking forward to making the next film,” his rep said.

And as for the rumours he was quitting because his wife’s not happy with the sexy nature of the film? She hasn’t even seen it.

“(Amelia) hasn’t seen the film and I don’t think she will, to be honest, I’d understand if she didn’t want to,” Jamie said.
Looks like we’ve got two more films to stare at Fifty Shades of boooring Christian Grey.

There are reports today that the actor who played Christian Grey in the recent movie Fifty Shades of Grey doesn’t want to be Christian Grey in the next two movies of the three-part series.

Actor Jamie Dornan was cast for the lead role in Fifty Shades of Grey in 2013 after Charlie Hunman pulled out of the role. But following the release of the film earlier this month, Australian magazine NW is reporting that the actor has informed producers that he would not be returning for movies two or three.

Dornan as Christian Grey

UK paper The Mirror reported that Dornan had turned down the role because his wife Amelia Warner was not comfortable with the explicit sex scenes. (Did she not read the books?)

Dornan went on to say at the premiere of the film in London: “I think there’s some stuff where family and friends will never have seen that side of me before, but it wasn’t enough to make me not want to do it.”

While the Fifty Shades of Grey team is yet to comment on Dornan not signing on for the rest of the films, we have one suggestions that they should take into consideration:
