And the new Christian Grey has been found. All he needs to do is sign on the dotted line, reports E! News.

He is Jamie Dornan. And Variety reported yesterday that he's been offered the role of Christian Grey after Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the movie weeks after being cast, citing his busy schedule.

This E! News tweet has been making its rounds this morning. It seems people are pretty excited about the 31-year-old Irish actor and former Calvin Klein model possibly taking on the role.

Read what celebrities are saying about Dornan as Christian Grey.

Dornan plays Sheriff Graham Humbert in the ABC series “Once Upon a Time.” You may have also seen him in Sofia Coppola’s "Marie Antoinette."

Dakota Johnson, 24, will star as Anastasia Steele. The film is set for an August 1, 2014 release.

What do you think of Dornan playing Christian Grey?
