With Charlie Hunnam ditching Fifty Shades of Grey in favor of making those fat stacks from Sons of Anarchy and Pacific Rim, Universal and Focus have been searching for a new Christian Grey. They've settled on Once Upon a Time's Jamie Dornan. Begin your hate-tweeting now.

The 31-year-old actor was named by Variety as the replacement for Hunnam, who said he had scheduling conflicts, as well as second thoughts about the role. Universal and Focus didn't comment; They really should have asked future costar Dakota Johnson about it, though, since they'll have to do all those sex scenes together.

Dornan has a past in modeling for places like Calvin Klein and Armani, Variety noted. He also starred in BBC Two drama The Fall and was in Marie Antoinette by Sofia Coppola. Fifty Shades of Grey is set to premiere Aug. 1, 2014, barring any other late-breaking casting changes.
