Could Matt Bomer be the new Christian Grey?
Fans of actor Matt Bomer are hoping the openly gay celeb will be reconsidered for the role of Christian Grey after word was leaked that Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam has pulled out of the big screen adaptation of E.L James’ popular novel 50 Shades of Grey.
A change.org petition has been launched calling for Bomer to be cast in the role. The petition as of Monday has received close to 88,000 signatures.
Sons of Anarchy star, Hunnam, is said to have dropped out due to scheduling conflicts with his series. It is not yet known whether this will affect the casting of Dakota Johnson
Bomer said of the petition: 'I’m so grateful for the fans and touched...'
Bomer begins shooting his fifth season of popular TV series White Collar on October 17.
