charlie-hunnam 3Hours after regretfully typing up news of 50 Shades of Grey‘s female lead getting cast I pivot and type a new one that announces that Pacific Rim and Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam will be dusting off his American accent yet again to play the stabbing penis in the adaptation.

This is a big gig for Charlie. Women already love him madly but in a film that requires him to be naked and thrusting for a good portion of the running time he could change lives. And usher in a new era of fingerbanging.

Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson are a nice pairing. They’re pretty and fit and not overexposed. Let’s see if the director of Nowhere Boy can weave sensual magic out of them.

Here’s hoping there’s no camp-out line that forms in anticipation of this release.
