Instead, it was Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam who’d been announced as the male lead opposite Dakota Johnson.

Charlie Hunnam promised a friend a favor

Hunnam was even stoked to play Grey, but he never got the chance. Apparently, he promised his friend, director Guillermo Del Toro, to star in his upcoming movie Crimson Peak, which would be filming at the same time. Heartbroken, Hunnam chose his commitment to his friend.
