Jamie Dornan hasn't officially been named the new Christian Grey, but the 31-year-old Northern Irishman has already been given a thumbs-up by a handful of Hollywood stars. Variety reported on Wednesday, Oct. 23, that the 6-foot actor has been offered the lead role in the film adaptation of author E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey, but as of now, he has yet to sign on the dotted line.
Of course, that didn't stop celebrities from weighing in online. Actress Kate Mara was the first to toast the hunk on Twitter. "Congrats to the sweetest person/scariest actor I know, @JamieDornan1 !!!!" the 30-year-old actress wrote. "#50ShadesOfGrey just got real. So fu$!in psyched. #blameIreland."
