Jamie Dornan as 'Fifty Shades of Grey's Star: Everyone Is Still Mad It's Not Ian Somerhalder
Though the response geared towards Jamie Dornan being cast as Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey is definitely much less negative than when Charlie Hunnam was to take on the role, it seems that you really can't please everyone when it comes to casting a movie about a borderline abusive millionaire who's secretly into S&M and Jeff Buckley. While many fans were thrilled by the casting choice — namely those who have followed his modeling career because damn, boy — it seemed that for every positive message on social networking sites, there were about two from those lamenting that the role hadn't gone to he with the gigantic blue eyes, Ian Somerhalder.
Take Twitter, for example: The site that everyone goes to when they have an opinion to share on anything ever.
