50 Shades of Grey isn’t coming out in theatres until next year, but stars Jamie Dornan and that other girl (Dakota Johnson) have to keep interest up. With that in mind, Jamie shared the above photo on Instagram this past week and everyone was going nuts over it (no pun intended).
I know I’m kinda not the target audience here, but like… no thanks. There’s nothing sexy or intriguing about this, or him, so I’m not getting all the hype. I’m sure it’ll make millions at the box office, though. Housewives are bored and horny, so it’ll do well.

Welp, some people need to learn their lessons the hard way, and it seems Jamie Dornan is already feeling a bit of 50 Shades of Grey fatigue as he’s really wishing he could do a role where he’s not tying women to beds all day. Of course, he had that opportunity before he decided to take this part, but unfortunately, his role as Christian Grey is probably going to put a big ol’ damper on the career potential he once had.
From The Guardian:
“There are a couple of classic knots I know now,” says the 31-year-old, “and I’ve put them to good use far too many times recently. In fact I’d like to do a job where I don’t have to tie women to beds.”
Of the attention he’s received for his first big Hollywood role, he says: “The whole thing’s ridiculous.” Then he falls silent. “It’s just all a bit silly the way it works. Another pause. “I think I could lose my mind.” By contrast, coming back from Fifty, as he calls it, straight on to The Fall and Belfast, “felt like coming home, in the loveliest way”.
Hey, side newsflash: The Fall is SO GOOD, and he was a total creepster in it. Also, he thinks it’s ridiculous NOW? He wants another role NOW? Before this movie has even come out? There’s a year to go before that happens, so methinks he needs to buck up and get used to it, because this is going to be one life and career-ruining ride, dude.

Hope you’re all getting moist in your nether regions for the upcoming watered-down 50 Shades of Grey movie that will not contain any of the explicit sex scenes that the entire book is based on! It’s gonna be GREAT! Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson have “chemistry” which they’ll totally put on show for you via a lot of lip biting and some sultry looks before the camera cuts when panties start dropping. I’m sure it’ll be everything that people who actually like that shite were hoping for.
In any case, we’ve got our first look at the poster for the film – which isn’t even due out until 2015, I might add. That seems like a bizarrely far away release date for a franchise whose popularity is already past its prime, right? Ah, whatever. I’m sure plenty of people will go to see “real passion” and the “moving storyline”.

Whoopdi-fuckin-do and all, but it turns out that Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson – the stars of the forthcoming big screen shitshow that will be the 50 Shades of Grey movie – have found “chemistry” together, both on AND off screen. Don’t get any freaky ideas into your head – Jamie is a family guy and I don’t think anyone cares what Dakota does with her life, but they’re just “hot” together.
From E! Online:
The highly anticipated film’s producer, Michael De Luca, spoke with E! News about how filming is going at the Producers Guild Awards over the weekend in Los Angeles.
“It’s hot,” he said of Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan’s chemistry throughout shooting. “I think we are a little more than halfway through but it’s going really good. I’m excited!”
So how are the future Mr. Grey and Anastasia Steele getting along with one another when the cameras aren’t rolling?
“The chemistry is there, they genuinely like each other,” De Luca revealed to us. “They’re enjoying the story, the story is so powerful.”
LOL, the story is so powerful? Dear God, please help the idiots who believe that to be a true statement. Powerfully awful? Powerfully boring and stereotypical? Powerfully geared towards bored housewives? Ah right, I guess that’s what they must’ve meant.

Jamie Dornan stars a Christian Grey for the new lolzfest Fifty Shades of Grey film and he’s on the cover of Entertainment Weekly in full Grey-ness, with Dakota Johnson, who plays what’s-her-face (Anastasia Steele).
This cover says it all, doesn’t it? It’s every bit as cheesy and horrible and creepy as we think it’s going to be. Look at her face! They’re not even showering her whole face. No, she must cover it, for she is terrified of master Grey. And look at him! He looks like J. Crew turned into a person and got drunk.
What do you guys think?

Charlie Hunnam surprised a lot of people when he gave up his role as Christian Grey in the upcoming crapfest Fifty Shades of Grey. No doubt Fifty Shades fans were thrilled as thousands of them were petitioning to get Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel. Well, sucks to be them, because it looks like Jamie Dornan is getting the role.
He was picked and now they’re going through negotiations. Producers want to start filming in November and that’s damn soon, so this is pretty close to happening. I’m guessing they wouldn’t announce it if it wasn’t going to happen. “They” is The Hollywood Reporter, and they’re usually spot-on about these things. Here’s some trivia on Mr. Dornan and the film from THC:
The UK-based Dornan was first revealed by as a contender for the role of kinky billionaire Grey by THR on Oct. 14. He actually was contacted before Hunnam officially dropped out and tested Friday opposite female lead Dakota Johnson for director Sam Taylor-Johnson, author EL James and producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti. Tony-nominated actor Billy Magnussen also tested, as did Francois Arnaud from The Borgias, according to sources.
I can never remember who the f-ck Jamie Dornan is. All I know him for is being married to Keira Knightley. Except turns out, they’re not married, they broke up, and she married some other dude. So I really have no idea who this kid is. Looks like that will soon change.
