Jamie Dornan is reportedly slated to play Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

The Irish star is said to have had a successful screen test with Dakota Johnson, who will play Anastasia Steele, on Friday.

Dornan is now in final negotiations for the leading role, according to multiple reports.

He would replace Charlie Hunnam, who recently dropped out of the project.

The actor, probably best known in the U.S. for appearing on “Once Upon a Time,” currently stars on the UK series “The Fall.”

Gossip Cop has reached out to Universal Pictures and Focus Features for confirmation of Dornan’s casting.
