Jamie Dornan on the Set of “50 Shades of Grey”

Posted on January 31, 2014

Here is your Christian Grey, world. Jogging. Jogging with INTENSITY.


Jamie Dornan goes for a jog in sweats while filming a scene for “50 Shades of Grey” in Vancouver.


We suspect he’s going to do all his acting in this film with his brows.

Also: Dawgie.

      Yep. He does nothing for me.

      • tereliz

        I vastly prefer him with facial hair.

  • Diego!

    #SausageFriday I love this look for jogging/running. I approve. Besides, when you run, everything is loose… if you know what I mean… 😛

  • Anna

    Running in baggy cotton sweats, rookie mistake. Hold my hand and let’s go shopping at my favourite running store for some proper gear, Jamie. I wouldn’t want you to have any issues with chafing.

    • Bridget Smith

      I occasionally see guys at my gym wearing jeans or khakis, and it just makes me sad. Dudes! Lightweight athletic shorts are $20! I PROMISE you will be much, much happier!

      • random_poster

        That sounds so uncomfortable and I’m cringing as I’m typing this.

      • Anna

        I’ve seen that at the gym too. Frightening.

        • Jecca2244

          same!! always looks painful. and my gym isn’t cheap.

      • But Christian Grey is supposed to be mega rich, wouldn’t he be running in full compression gear and hi tech awesomeness from the best designers or something? This outfit – and all the outfits thus far – do not really make a lot of sense.

        Will his helicopter be a clapped out huey from the 70’s or something? Is this like the cheap version of Fifty Shades? Will his room full of toys be like spatulas from Ikea, or something?

        • CPK1

          this is hilarious

        • Anna

          Hahahahaha, “spatulas from Ikea,” so true. There’s nary even a Nike logo to be found. Or considering they’re filming in Vancouver, Lululemon. This looks like they got it at Target.

          They are “toning down” the love scenes so I think you’re onto something with the low-budget Fifty Shades.

        • AzSportsGirl

          I canNOT with the utter crapola of those books. Makes me weep.

    • homofascist

      I’m gonna stop you right there…men wearing sweatpants without the proper gear underneath are my reason for living. There is no need to correct this ‘problem’.

      • Anna

        I’m all for men wearing sweatpants without the proper gear underneath. I’m just suggesting that Jamie would be more comfortable while exercising in a pair of either split-hem running shorts (we can see his legs) or the previously suggested compression gear (we can see erm, muscle definition).

        • homofascist

          Fair enough. I would be happy with all choices, but I am going to probably always lean towards floppage.

        • Janet B

          He doesn’t need to wear anything under running shorts, right?

          • Anna

            I personally don’t think he needs to, but hey may feel differently.

      • kimmeister

        You would have loved my Critical Thinking professor then. His wife, who co-taught the class, also delighted us with wearing white blouses without a bra.

        • demidaemon

          OMG. I don’t know how anyone in that class could have kept a straight face.

    • Alanna

      Yeah, but if he wore proper undergarments, we laydiez wouldn’t get to see The Bulge OMFG! (I think my IQ slipped a few points by typing that.)

      • Anna

        Well, compression tights are…tight.

      • demidaemon


  • MilaXX

    Is the dog his? I’m confused.

  • Imasewsure

    DAWGIE!!! And brow-acting…. DAWGIE!!

  • hmariec19

    Compression leggings or GTFO.

  • Scimommy

    I’m almost afraid to ask, but… is that dog part of the “plot”?

    • We need this answered.

    • sugarkane105

      His coat is 50 shades of grey.

  • Brow acting is to remind us that his eyes are up there and we shouldn’t be staring at the other parts. At least, not all the time.

    • not_Bridget

      Tom Mison’s brow acting is much better. As is his everything else….

      (Hey, Ichabod got a new outfit in the season finale. The first bit of Fashion News the show has offered!)

      • I cannot wait to marathon that show. I’ve had a crush on Ichabod Crane since I was a single digit.

      • Mismarker

        Much as I love Sleepy Hollow and Tom Mison as Ichabod, I really don’t want to see him in skinny jeans again. He looked like a teenaged girl.

        • SierraDelta

          I’m all for letting Headless have Katrina. Ichabod will need comforting, and I’m sure it’s my duty to provide it for him.

  • Judy_S

    Cute dog.

  • Melanie

    i just don’t buy him as christian grey. he’s pretty enough i guess, but he’s too bland.

    • Bridget Smith

      Heh, go watch him play a serial killer in The Fall.

      • Melanie

        yes ppl keep bringing this up! i will have to do so.

        • Madam Von Sassypants


        • lundibleu

          Oh do, The Fall was excellent and I loved Gillian Anderson in it. Plus Jamie did running, and was hotter than in these shots.

      • Suzanne Moore

        YES. He is certainly not bland in The Fall. You can stream if from Netflix.

      • pookiesmom

        Oh, god! I didn’t even recognize him! Now I can’t be totally indifferent to 50 Shades, and I have no idea how to feel.

      • Millarca

        I totally agree. If I hadn’t seen “The Fall” I might have doubts too, but because I have seen it I think he is absolutely perfect. He can do sexy and intense and broody very well.

    • mshesterp

      I think he’s perfect, because I thought Christian Grey WAS pretty one-note, if not exactly bland (intense staring, inappropriate touching, red room of pain–lather rinse repeat). Much better fit than Charlie Hunnam.

      • Melanie

        oh yeah he was totally one note, but you would think there would at least be some kind of magnetism in that one note. in any event i completely agree he’s a better fit than CH, what the hell were they thinking with that one..

  • But what of the photos of him running in the RAIN??? Those were so purty! 🙂

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    He is boring .. not that I was ever going to read the books or see the movie anyway. How about we have Dawgie Friday once a month .. just pics of celebs with their puppies. It would make me sooo happy.

    • And so say we all.

      • E2_Remote

        Big props for the BSG reference : )

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      I support this notion in the abstract but I suspect my ovaries might not be able to handle it.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    His heel striking stride is making me cringe.

    • kimmeister

      The 4th picture, where his legs appear to be twisted like Red Vines, makes me cringe.

  • lobsterlen

    Watch The Fall. he can act and be very creepy. He was so very good in The Fall it is my hope that being in 50 shades doesn’t ruin his career. I also wonder if this dreck will never be released. I cannot imagine given the story line it will not be given an X rating which will doom it.

    • Adrianna Grężak

      I’ve heard from multiple sources (including NPR) that The Fall is a good show

      • lobsterlen

        It was good. gillian anderson plays led investigator and is just as creepy as the serial killer she is stalking.

        • Madam Von Sassypants

          She’s also badass in that she’s all, “You! Handsome Northern Irish cop I just met! Come to my hotel room!”

          • lobsterlen

            That scene was really something.

          • Trish

            YES, that is the best. And it’s not even “that I just met.” It’s “pull this car over so I can pick up that hot Irish cop I just spotted at a crime scene.”

          • Millarca

            Yeah! Wasn’t that cool! 😀

      • pookiesmom

        It’s fantastic. It’s basically an incredibly well-crafted feminist response to all of the serial killer shows out there. Gillian Anderson is phenomenal, and it made me fall in love with her even more.

    • foxysquirrel

      I watched The Fall based on BK comments on the last Jamie Dornan post here. Seriously, be prepared to sit and watch all 5 episodes.

      • Absolutely agreed – once you start watching it, you ain’t going nowhere. 🙂 Schedule yourself a 5 hour window. You’ll need it. 🙂

    • CPK1

      And in the Fall he was always going for runs in the correct attire.

      • And getting naked afterwards.. hmm, thanks for reminding me! Perhaps a re-watch is in order. 😉

    • Amelia Ross

      Just watched The Fall the other day, was disturbed by the correlations between his emotionally abusive, sexualized-serial-killer character and what I’ve read about Christian Grey. Basically the character in The Fall is what any sane person who reads 50 Shades sees Christian Grey as, the fact that he’s played both roles makes it even creepier.

      • lobsterlen

        Maybe that is where the screenwriters are going to take 50 shades? I barely read it … just a few pages … but from everything I heard its sex all the time. So I do not understand how the film version if it follows the book wouldn’t be Xrated because that is all there is. The little I did read the nonsexual dialogue made me cringe. It was on the level of “its a dark and stormy night” writing. I wonder if the film will be “50 Shades” in name only and completely rewritten?

    • demidaemon

      My guess is that it will, with some judicious editing, end up a hard R.

  • Let it out


  • Is “50 shades of gray” supposed to describe his wardrobe? Get some color in your life, man.

    • CatherineRhodes


  • SugarSnap108

    OK, but I love that he’s all: *JOGGING, JOG, JOG* *OMG, puppy!* *JOGGING, JOG, JOG*

  • Glitterberries


  • Cheryl

    I live in Vancouver, and there are way nicer and easily accessible places to run than out on the damn street, downtown. Someone please point him towards the Seawall. Glad he stopped to talk to the dog.

    • lobsterlen

      I don’t think he is out on a personal run … I believe these photos are behind the scenes stills while the movie is being filmed.

      • Cheryl

        Ah okay, that makes sense. I recognized the area, and thought it was a lousy place to run, when there are so many beautiful places to go, that wouldn’t have concrete underneath his feet. Fanks, lobsterlen.

  • Mismarker

    I am not, nor never will be, a runner so won’t even speak on the appropriateness of the running attire. That said, 4th picture down is by far the most upsetting: side view of sad, baggy pockets. Giving the illusion of baked potato body. Not good.

  • acevedob

    Yea I get nothing unless he has a beard.

  • ashtangajunkie

    My eyebrows don’t work nearly that hard when I work out.

  • decormaven

    “I brake for cute puppies.”

  • Anne At Large

    Very early Cary Elwes to me in the intense brow-acting shots. Do you think we could talk him into a pencil-thin mustache?

    • Mismarker

      I see it. Let’s start calling him “farm boy”.

      • kimmeister

        And leave pitchers all over the place for him to fetch.

        • sharonimus


    • Pennymac

      Great/ Now I’m hearing Jimmy Buffet.

  • Inspector_Gidget

    This is making me think more of Six Million Dollar Man for some reason.

  • What the hell is this, formal jog wear?

  • majorbedhead

    Serious running. Much intense.

  • kayleymaybe

    This movie is going to be such a trainwreck, but oh my goodness he is a gorgeous man.

  • marlie

    If the movie were JUST about the dog, I’d see it.

  • E2_Remote

    Okay, I’m confused on multiple levels here. Is he wearing his own gear while getting in a jog between takes, or is that something costuming put him in for a scene for the film? Because if it’s the latter, wow, epic fail. I’ve never read the books, but isn’t Christian supposed to be like 100% sex on toast at all times? This workout gear makes him look like he’s out on a Monday morning atonement run after a weekend spent on the couch with beer and Combos marathoning Game of Thrones.

  • Janet B

    Those are tragically boring pants.

  • Trickytrisha

    Sorry, he’s kid brother material.

  • lisaepc

    Q: Can a poorly written book make a good movie?

    • demidaemon

      A: A question for the ages. Nobody really knows.

  • Therese Bohn

    Cute doggie!

  • msdamselfly

    He’s really cute

  • mrspotts66

    i just can’t see him as christian grey. i just can’t.
    he’s a good looking man.
    but, meh.

  • KT

    Hooray for some actual sausage on Sausage Friday!

  • quiltrx

    He does nothing for me…and rather looks like a little boy, face-and-hair-wise.

  • irielle

    His brows and his jaw muscles.

  • intheyear2000

    first picture = penn badgley

  • understateddiva

    cute, but not exactly the stock photo for “top”.

  • deech_sea

    I’m mostly looking forward to series 2 of The Fall! Also, Dawgie!

  • St. Ace

    Too bad Chris Hunnam is no longer the lead, because I am reminded of the Honest Trailer for Pacific Rim:

    Starring…things your inner 9yo loves! Look, a doggy!

  • Christina Hauzer

    The sweats are just fine. Just think of what’s underneath. Use your imagination. Besides, he must love dogs.
