Looks like Jamie Dornan had already dipped his toes into the world of BDSM long before he was cast as Christian Grey.
The 31-year-old stud has reportedly replaced Charlie Hunnam in the big screen adaptation of E.L. James' erotic thriller Fifty Shades of Grey, and now, throwback photos of the model from GQ magazine suddenly have a whole new meaning as he gets ready to take on the erotic role.
The first superhot shot is from GQ's September 2006 issue and features the Once Upon a Time star and Victoria's Secret stunner Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who are both oozing with sex appeal while channeling their inner S&M.
Dornan flaunts his ridiculously hot bod in a pair of fitted white briefs, an unbuttoned shirt and an undone tie, holding a glass of whiskey with one hand while gently caressing Whiteley's hair with the other (so Christian Grey!).
The 26-year-old model also looks equally sexy (and very Anastasia Steele) with a lacy blindfold over her eyes and her hands tied behind her back while wearing a tiny pair of underwear and a sheer cover-up that ties at the front and barely covers the beauty's breasts.
Safe to say this pic puts any doubts that Dornan wasn't the right man for the role to rest.

But that's not the only sexy shot of the stud who is expected to play the Seattle-based billionaire!
There's also a solo shot of the Irish star from GQ's January 2005 issue, and while Jamie is fully clothed in the black and white pic, he still embodies all the sexiness that is Christian Grey.
The Hollywood hunk gives the camera a smoldering star, looking dapper in a charcoal suit with his hair slicked back and sporting a bit of scruff.
Convinced we've found our Christian?
