The Fifty Shades of Grey casting conundrum continues.
Just this morning, I got word that Billy Magnussen is a new contender in the race to replace Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey.
Who's Billy? The 28-year-old blonde hottie most recently was cast as a series regular on HBO's upcoming drama, The Money.
Not only did he earn a Tony nomination for his work last year in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, but he also appeared shirtless for much of the play. And yes, he sure has a hot Christian Grey-worthy bod!
Magnussen is currently filming the movie adaptation of the Broadway musical Into The Woods, playing Rapunzel's Prince opposite A-Listers like Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, Anna Kendrick and more.
Another actor who may have been added to the list is Luke Bracey, a 24-year-old Australian actor best known for playing Trey Palmer on Home and Away. He received a lot of attention in January when he was reportedly spotted holding hands with Selena Gomez at a Golden Globes party.
A source also tells me that screen tests are taking place tomorrow.
Other actors said to be up for the starring role include Jamie Dornan, Christian Cooke and François Arnaud.
