Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam has been cast as Christian Grey in the film adaptation of bestselling novel Fifty Shades of Grey.  We don’t usually cover movie news, but it’s a slow news day, and Hunnan is primarily known for his TV work. Jax Teller is a far cry from a billionaire industrialist but both characters have a dark side and love women who are far more innocent than they are. Hunnam launched his U.S. television career as the cute British exchange student on Undeclared, so he can play a wide range of characters. The role of Christian’s love, Anastasia, will be played by Dakota Johnson, daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith.  Though this is a high profile, big budget movie, reportedly many film stars were reluctant to take on the roles due to the graphic sexual content of the story. What do you think of this casting? Will it inspire an epic Twitter rant from Sons of Anarchy showrunner Kurt Sutter? Sound off in the comments.
