Charlie Hunnam is the latest actor rumored to be under consideration to play Christian Grey in "50 Shades of Grey," this according to a report from TWITCH. HuffPost Entertainment contacted Hunnam's representation for comment on the matter; this post will be updated with their response.

Hunnam, who stars on "Sons of Anarchy" and played the lead in this summer's "Pacific Rim," joins Garrett Hedlund and Ian Sommerhalder as actors who have been mentioned for the Grey role.
