Jamie Dornan on the Set of “Fifty Shades Of Grey”

Posted on January 23, 2014

We’ve gone on record PUH-LENTY of times that we have no interest in this book or movie, but…

 

 

 

Jamie Dornan films scenes for “Fifty Shades of Grey” at a hardware store in Vancouver, Canada.

…DAMN, does he ever make it hard to remain uninterested. Is that man a slice, or what?

    • Diego!

      He looks great! I love the boots!

      • jspark

        Have you seen him in The Fall? After watching him play crazy sexy bad guy, I’m actually excited to see this movie know, I think they nailed it in casting.

        • Diego!

          No, I haven’t :( I must watch it then! :D

        • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

          I am watching it now after all the positive comments here, it is great – and he is gorgeous. I get why he is in that movie now, he has an incredible body.

        • littlemac8

          Yes I have and he was fabulous. But I will never, EVER, see the movie, read the book. I only like spoofs.

    • Paigealicious

      I saw that rainbow windsock in the first picture and thought the caption said “hardcore store.”

      • Heather

        There are many crossovers.

    • Brett

      I enjoy the subtle protest of the Sochi games.

    • Kimmu

      Man, and all I can see is his terrible hair and think about how unattractive he is.

      • Glam Dixie

        ^^This^^ plus he gives me a total Ryan Seacrest Lite vibe that I just can’t shake.

        • ailujailuj

          heh – oh my. you’re not gonna bounce back from that anytime soon…

        • melisaurus

          He looks like Matthew Morrison with out a vest and a wrinkled brow.

    • MilaXX

      meh, I’m trying to figure out what about this dude would make me want to drop trou in a hardware store. Sorry he does nothing for me.

    • Latin Buddy

      I don’t “get” the whole 50 Shades of Grey thing.

      • MilaXX

        me neither. It always sounded like the poorly written fan fic. I have no idea why it became such a phenomenon.

        • Anna

          It is. Poorly-written and unintentionally hilarious Twilight fan fic.

          • BayTampaBay

            Hopefully the movie will be too.

            • Anna

              I always tell people that if you have the stomach and mental toughness to persevere, there is A LOT of comedy gold in those books.
              I’m torn on the movie, on the one hand, seeing him naked and aforementioned comedy gold. On the other, loss of $12 for movie ticket and God knows how many brain cells. Tough call.

            • Glam Dixie

              Wait for it to come on HBO or Showtime or whatever. Your wallet will thank your brain cells.

            • Anna

              You’re right, good call!

            • http://unbornunicorn.wordpress.com/ Amanda Gun

              Latest news is there will be a lot less nudity than they originally promised, so…. the entire point, if there ever was one, is gone.

            • GorgeousThings

              Remember, it’s two hours or so of your life that you’ll never get back.

            • Anna

              You’re absolutely right. Um, btw, LOVE LOVE LOVE your avatar!

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              When I have seen a movie that I really, really have not liked, that’s my go-to line-”90 minutes or 2 hours of my life that I will never get back” -last said after seeing Gravity.

            • Rand Ortega

              It doesn’t seem to pass the “It’ll be on HBO soon enough” test. I’ll wait. If at all.

            • Anna

              Now if there were some kind of hypothetical exclusive and special BK screening with an entire audience of like-minded snarky people, and cocktails and hors d’oeuvres…that I would attend.

            • Rand Ortega

              Attend? I’d host it! Snarking on what looks to be the “Exit To Eden” of the 21st century with THE most hilarious people on the interwebs would be worth every penny!

            • Anna

              Fantastic! Please accept this as my advance RSVP.

            • Rand Ortega

              Done! Gotta find out when this turkey’s going to be released.

            • Anna

              Don’t laugh too hard, but the day before Valentine’s Day 2015. Thought that was priceless when I’d read about it on another gossip site.

            • Rand Ortega

              HAHAHAHAHA! The cheese stands alone!

            • formerlyAnon

              Jesus god. I had forgotten ‘Exit to Eden’ existed. You owe me.

            • Rand Ortega

              LOL! Sorry, Doll. 1st drink will be on me.

            • formerlyAnon

              I’ll hold ya to it, given the chance. (ETA: but I really want some of the stories I know you’ve got stashed away.)

            • Rand Ortega

              You got ‘em. (My years at the music video production company in the early ’90′s are especially juicy.)

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              “Exit to Eden” was one helluva of misfire, wasn’t it? How many careers did that film kill?

            • Rand Ortega

              Tons. Both sides of the cameras. & studios Executive suites. It was like Bastille Day. Heads. Rolled.
              (I did a tiny schadenfreude dance)

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              I have dim (probably mercifully so) memory of watching it on cable, and one unfortunate memory I did retain was of Dan Ackroyd in black leather….shudder!

            • CelandineM

              Tee heee, “Go paint my house!”

            • melisaurus

              Omg I wish movie theaters had snark screenings to make new snarky movie friend.

              The only person who normally goes to movies with me is my bf. I love my boyfriend but his jokes are often not funny. His snark tends to lack the necessary levity and leans toward disdain.

            • Anna

              So true, there should be Snark Social events. The person I love to go to movies with most is my best friend, but she lives in another city.

            • melisaurus

              Awww I feel you. My best friend lives 30 minutes away and is a teacher so even when she’s not at work she’s grading papers and writing lessons.

            • Anna

              Yeah, we only see each other once a year so we usually don’t have time to go see movies, although snarking over cocktails is a fair trade. Remember the days when you’d tie up the phone at home for hours talking about the most useless things? I miss those days. Now even sending off a quick text can sometimes be an arduous task ;-).

            • insertcleverbit

              It needs to be like Mystery ScienceTheater 3000, but with Rom-Coms and snarky side comments instead. I propose they start with ridiculous movies like “Exit to Eden” (which I also have distinct memories of watching on Cable, that and “Casual Sex?”with Lea Thompson and Andrew Dice Clay, and that lady from Troop Beverly Hills)

          • ailujailuj

            I suspected that these were the “nighttime” daytime dramas for the uptight, hyposexual, nervous, judgmental conservative types who have no idea what explorative sex is – or is supposed to be. or that it’s kinda normal.

            • Anna

              The jist of it is that an unformed woman with nothing interesting or exceptional about her decides she’s game for some chains and whips if that’s what it takes for a handsome, kinky billionaire to love her. With some kidnapping and corporate intrigue. Hilarity, and some freaky sex, ensues.

            • ailujailuj

              hmmm…. I think I’ll just re-rent Secretary. ;)

            • Rand Ortega

              lol aka “Mommy Porn”.

            • Anna

              Haha. But surely they deserve better from their erotic romance, no? Not what boils down to the author’s creepy Edward Cullen/Robert Pattinson fantasies.

            • Rand Ortega

              Oh, absolutely. I was just writing a reply to demidaemon who posted about how vanilla bland fan fic is these days. When I was building my writing sensibilites while being a complete Trek nerd, I was exposed to all sorts of amazing writing talent. Some Trek fan fiction was so good it was published as compilations by mainstream publishers (there’s a novella called “Mind Sifter” that sticks with me 30 years later). Some writers, like me, parlayed their fan fic into non fan based writing careers (ETA– This is not to say I’m so great. Rather, I stuck with my craft beyond the fan fic to make a living from it). While the 50 Shades author struck gold by self publishing a provocative bondage novel, considering some of the fiction I’ve skimmed & have heard about, I don’t think the quality of writing will withstand literary scrutiny.

            • Anna

              She was definitely in the right place at the right time. And I can certainly appreciate how annoying that must be. I haven’t really read any fan fic so I can’t comment on it, but I’ve read other books in the erotic romance genre by writers who have their own small following yet get none of the attention of that EL James woman. I’m sure you can guess whose books have much more carefully crafted plots, with likable characters you DON’T want to punch in the face yourself, and who possess writing skills beyond, at best, an elementary school level.

            • Anna

              Um, I’ve just been alerted to the fact that there is a musical parody.

              HAHAHAHAH.

            • Rand Ortega

              MUST. FIND. IMMEDIATELY.

            • Anna

              Right? Wish I’d thought of it first. Goddamnit. I love musicals. I love to hate FSOG, you’d think that, “Of course! Come up with a musical parody!” would be the logical conclusion.

              I’m actually more than mildly curious as to what the music is like, is that bad? I’m in an open-area office and I forgot my headphones so I can’t play what’s on their web site.

            • Rand Ortega

              Think “Memphis : The Musical” 50′s rock & roll with S/M lyrics. I think I have to see this when it comes to LA in Feb/March.

            • Anna

              Brilliant, hopefully they’ll add a Toronto tour date. I suppose I could make the trip across the border to Buffalo, but I’m not THAT anxious to see it. Although I can’t help giggling now about hypothetically replying to the border guard that the purpose of my trip is to see 50 Shades! The Musical.

            • Rand Ortega

              Especially not in the horrible weather in the NE. Maybe wait for the summer stock touring company.

            • Anna

              Here’s hoping! Because really, no one should be denied this cultural landmark.

            • formerlyAnon

              Any plot that can be summarized starting with “an unformed [person-of-either-gender-but-especially] woman” already has my back up. Continuing “with nothing interesting . . .[stuff omitted] . . . about her[/him]” nails the coffin shut. There is no. such. person. Just someone the writer doesn’t care enough about to delve into. Which has its place, but not as a main character in my very opinionated opinion.

            • Anna

              “Just someone the writer doesn’t care enough about to delve into,” is exactly right.

          • MilaXX

            I know it’s Twilight fan fic. It’s just that it’s such laughably bad fan fic.

            • @Biting Panda

              That’s what happens when you make fanfic out of an already atrocious story and horrible characters. Like a copy of a copy, it’s only going to get worse. And it started off pretty fucking terrible.

            • GorgeousThings

              I never had any interest in reading it. I have no interest in seeing the movie. I read “The Story of O” years back, and this seems like a bad fanfic ripoff of that story.

            • MilaXX

              Another blogger I follow read it and live tweeted. I’ve never actually read it myself because it sounded so awful. After her live tweet, I was convinced I didn’t need to read it.

            • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

              I must urge you to go to badhostess and read her review of it. Everyone needs to read that.

            • Alloy Jane

              George Takei reads an excerpt from it. I laughed hard.

            • CelandineM

              OK wow I can hardly type this reply because I am still laughing so much after reading that review. Thank you so very much for that. My cat, however doesn’t appreciate it, as she gave me a disgusted look and jumped off my lap.

            • Anna

              It most certainly is!

            • BayTampaBay

              Maybe the movie will be better than the book.

            • MikeW_Vegas

              I don’t’ think it’s possible to be WORSE than the book.

            • demidaemon

              Ninety percent of fan fic is laughably bad.

            • formerlyAnon

              60% of fan fic is laughably bad. 30% is painfully, wincingly bad.

            • demidaemon

              Yes. Grammar and spelling are often not a fan fic writer’s strongest suit.

        • fursa_saida

          The saddest thing is all these people flocking to its porniness when, you know what, if you’re gonna read porny fanfiction, there is SO MUCH BETTER OUT THERE. FOR FREE.

          • MilaXX

            Exactly!

          • formerlyAnon

            Sssshhhhhh! If fan fiction is generally familiar, its mere existence will cease to be a valuable conversational prompt. I was having dinner with friends just last night, and confessed that fan fiction had replaced much of my bad t.v. watching time. We seriously spent over half an hour discussing who we know/which of us reads (and writes!) it, which fandoms, who’d never heard of it, and who tried it but couldn’t get into it and why.

            • demidaemon

              This sounds like a discussion group I would like to join! I’ve recently got back into reading fanfiction again. My current fandom: Hetalia.

            • fursa_saida

              False! Fanfiction as a generally familiar thing would mean you could talk about it with whoever without having to do the whole “There is a proud tradition of transformative works!” justification dance! I tried to bring it up with a good friend just this evening, and while she was polite, it was very clear that she views fic with contempt, which completely killed the thread of conversation I was trying to raise. Instead of talking about Sherlock as fanfiction of Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories, and how the first episode of series 3 incorporated a lot of fanfiction of (the fanfiction that is) Sherlock and the things that are interesting about that multilayered interaction, we ended up having to discuss the anarchist messages of Fight Club. Which, frankly, is way less interesting.

              Yours sounds like a lovely conversation. I wish I could have it in non-internet life more often.

            • Kimmu

              The key is to turn your internet friends into your real life friends. Then you can have hours long discussions at restaurants breaking down everyone’s in progress Thor fanfics and bounce ideas off of each other. As for anyone who views fanfic with contempt, I always then ask them if they hate Shakespeare, Homer, or Dante, because the idea of originality in storytelling is a modern concept, and all of their works were transformative works based on well known pre-existing characters and stories. They were essentially fanfic.

              Though I admit I sort of snerk each time I meet someone in person first who is a fandom person. You do that dance around finding out what each person is into without trying to send them running for the hills.

            • fursa_saida

              Ha, I’ve got a couple of those, but not enough.

            • formerlyAnon

              I guess I’m luckier in my friends than I realize!

            • Rand Ortega

              There’s a wonderful article in the current New Yorker on the very topic regarding the parallel of the relationship between today’s Sherlock, the fans the fiction they write & the relationship Arthur Conan Doyle had with his fans & the fiction they wrote (they were extremely upset when Doyle threw Holmes from the Bridge so they wrote fanfic about how he survived).

            • fursa_saida

              Ha, yes, I’ve been told about it a few times, what with my glaringly obvious interests! :) I’m still getting around to reading it. Thanks for the thought!

          • misstressofsylar

            Drarry & Destiel FTW!

            • demidaemon

              Agreed!

            • fursa_saida

              I am legitimately and routinely conflicted over the fact that there is so much good fic written for Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, but I don’t care about that pairing at all. I end up reading it because, like I said, a lot of fic in that pairing is incredibly well written, but it subliminally annoys me constantly because I JUST DON’T CARE ABOUT THOSE TWO AS A COUPLE.

              (Even Destiel I’m weirdly uninvested in, even though I totally see why people ship them? idk, I seem to have a thing for rarer pairings/no pairings. ALAS.)

        • Alloy Jane

          Twilight was hilariously bad, but 50 Shades? Ugh. The writing is outright shitty. And for me, the whole “culture” of that book is so offensive as to fill me with indignant rage. I love that the BDSM community made a point to condemn the dangerousness of these books.

          • demidaemon

            I always feel like fan fic authors have to insert BDSM for some reason I never get. It really does nothing for me, personally, and always feels extraneous and forced.

            • formerlyAnon

              Some of my favored authors don’t do it, but it seems as if the vast majority of fanfic authors who continue to write over months or years eventually have to try it in at least one story. It’s like a rite of passage or something.

            • demidaemon

              I can understand one story. Sort of. It just always leaves me feeling a bit icky afterwards, so I can only imagine what a whole book would be like. Yuck.

            • formerlyAnon

              I have this stereotypically girly attitude to porn – I like it if it’s all intertwined with feelings (not necessarily love or even a facsimile thereof, but some kind of emotion), but can’t stand either overly histrionic feeling (you’d better give me a hell of a back story if your character is going to burst into uncontrollable sobs or go catatonic after sex) or bare clinical description. And I’m snobby about really bad writing. So all those things color my opinion more than the presence or absence of BDSM. But I’m certainly cautious about stuff tagged with BDSM, a lot of it is outside my comfort zone.

            • demidaemon

              For me, it depends on my mood and how much effort I feel like putting into it. Sometimes I want there to be something outside of the sex and sometimes I just want straight up no holds barred SEX. As for BDSM, funnily enough, in fanart I am more forgiving, but I tend to really heavily dislike it–depending on how heavy it is–in fiction. I am peculiar and fickle.

            • formerlyAnon

              Per your ETA, I’m sure you’ve seen the various memes about bad fanfic writing specifically of relationships/sex. Hilarious. (And I think they whiff vanilla hetero pretty frequently, as well. I often wonder “ya know, if you’ve never tried that with a partner, just imagine arranging your body parts that way and see if they even GO that way & how long you could keep ‘em there and oh yeah – can you actually BREATHE????”) Lots of yogi masters in that thar fic.

            • demidaemon

              Heh. I do admit to doing this once in a lesbian sex scene in my own (regular) writing, but I have vowed to fix it before I ever show it to the masses.

            • formerlyAnon

              Watch out for long hair, too. I had hair to my waist for 30+ years, and it’s a management issue if you have a partner who wants it flowing loose all the damn time.

            • demidaemon

              Thanks for the tip!

            • formerlyAnon

              Just remember: as soon as you stop thinking about it, a hank of hair gets trapped under some bit of you, or your partner, or between the two of you somewhere, and without warning the range of motion for your head & shoulders is reduced to maybe +/- 2 inches. Extrapolate. (ETA: I am SURE there are graceful people who don’t have this problem. I’m not one of ‘em.)

            • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

              Oh yes the “Ouch, shit! Get off my hair! Ouch!” and then trying to brush it after… That never makes it into the romances.

            • Rand Ortega

              Sorry to just jump in, but the idea that current “fan fic authors tend to know nothing about the following: anything that isn’t
              vanilla hetero sex (sometimes they whiff at this too) and how real
              relationships work” makes me rather sad. Growing up in the ’70′s/’80′s, K/S (Kirk & Spock as lovers) was the de rigueur fiction of choice in ST fandom. It’s themes of love & diversity, relationships, navigating work within a relationship, respecting those not like you & their opinions, et al, were so enriching to us misfits trying to figure out how to fit in the mundane world. The idea that’s not as popular today is rather surprising to me.

            • formerlyAnon

              It’s not as though it’s not popular. Those are still common themes, it’s just that the works that do it well are in the minority, especially in the more popular fandoms where there are hundreds? thousands? of authors. I think fans who read extensively in a fandom find the authors who do it well.

            • Rand Ortega

              That’s good to know. There was a sad amount of crap back in the day, too (the “Mary Sue” subgenre)

            • demidaemon

              I think the main reason is the following: it’s greatly teenage girls writing it, and there is just more of it. Generally, the more of something there is, the lesser the general quality. Also, it’s more readily available, with the internet and stuff. While the internet has brought us great things (like this here website!), it also has brought us some pretty awful things too.

            • Rand Ortega

              Amen.

      • Glam Dixie

        All I can figure is it was a bit of titillating reading for people who don’t usually read books, because anyone who loves to read actual books knows it was a joke. That would also kind of explain the sales. I hate to read but these are supposed to be so erotic, I’m going to buy them! Ug, kill me now.

        • marlie

          Don’t waste your money.

        • decormaven

          I have refused to buy the book, and don’t care to borrow a copy. There’s plenty of true literature that needs to be supported. I am not a prude, but this is twaddle packaged as “art.” Seriously doubt I’ll see the film unless it’s released to Netflix, if ever.

          • nadia mccall

            that’s my exact sentiment — I would NEVER buy this idiotic “book” and would prefer to line the birdcage with it. But my bird would probably ask for better toilet paper. I LOVE real erotica, hate bad writing and crap. This selling so well is proof that most people are dumb, and this angers and saddens me.

    • Scimommy

      LOVE the sweater!

      What was your question again?

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      Do hardware stores often stock elderly gay windsocks?

      • Anna

        I was gonna say, I don’t remember Christian meeting Anastasia in a hardware store in the gay village.

        • BayTampaBay

          I was gonna say, I don’t even know what elderly gay windsocks are.

          • MikeW_Vegas

            isn’t that what Johnny Depp wears?

            T.Lo describes Johnny Depp as looking like an elderly gay windchime. This “hardware” store features windsocks in the symbol-of-LGBT-pride rainbow. Hence elderly gay windsock.

            Humour really doesn’t work when you explain it.

    • ashtangajunkie

      He’s a cutie, but I’m still not interested in 50 shades of anything.

    • ScarlettHarlot

      Oh he’s a slice – a slice of store brand white bread with no spreads to make it palatable or interesting.

      • Glitterberries

        Agreed. He does nothing for me, either.

      • ailujailuj

        Funny – I hate the sweater. But I’d take him home, get him outta those boring stiff jeans and give him a real haircut.

      • Julie Chase

        I think he’s gorgeous but primarily with beard he had in The Fall. Playing a serial killer. I may have issues.

      • nadia mccall

        but how about how he was in The Fall? Seriously, he was so hot in that that I came upon this site while looking for something similar to The Fall. Forget how he looks here, not at all comparable. BUT….’tis true that my sister said, “Wow, he sure is creepy” when I had her watch it with me, so one person’s creepy is another person’s hot is another person’s slice of bland bread. I personally liked being a tad bit scared with my turn-on.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      TLo, if you have any interest in seeing Jamie in something that is actually worth your time..head over to Netflix and watch The Fall…it does not disappoint on any front…

      • homofascist

        He looks so hot with a beard. Perfect slice of otter…

      • BarniClaw

        I think TLo mentioning him in The Fall was the reason I checked it out. Not 100% sure about that, but I am 100% in agreement with you. I loved it. And Gillian Anderson was amazing. Woof.

        • schadenfreudelicious

          Gillian Anderson was indeed amazing in that role, and the woman just gets more beautiful with age…

          • ailujailuj

            She does. She’s interesting as a blond. But her acting also transcends whatever role she’s in.

      • ailujailuj

        YES – I guess this is why he interests me. I am not following the gray shades over 50 – or whateverthehell that thing is.

    • CPK1

      he is super cute. It was hard to see him as a serial killer in the Fall (great show if you didn’t see it). But what did they do to his hair?!

    • gabbilevy

      Yeah, he’s fine enough, but also seems pretty wrong for the character (CAVIAT: I have not read, nor ever ever intend to read, any of these terrible books and/or see the movies, but it’s part of my job to stay aware of stuff like the casting of this movie) and he seems pretty not what “the fans” so adamantly wanted. Too casual boyish, not enough suave businessman.

      • BayTampaBay

        Who did the fans want?

        • gabbilevy

          Matt Bomer. Desperately.

          • BazoDee

            I love Matt and I would have loved to see him as CG – but for his career I’m glad he didn’t get/take the role.

            • acevedob

              Agreed.

            • @Biting Panda

              I’m not sure, but I think Bomer could use some sort energized infusion to his career. Star of non-premium cable show is not exactly top of the Hollywood heap. I don’t think it would have *hurt* his career, the way I thought it would hurt Charlie Hunnam’s. Doing 50 Shades of Shit would have gotten him a lot of gossip coverage. And Oprah knows he is pretty enough. Damn, MB is a hot, hot, man.

          • ailujailuj

            desperately x 100

          • julnyes

            Hm, if they wanted Bomer, I don’t think this guy will satisfy them.

          • demidaemon

            So glad he didn’t go out for the role. I would have had to have a “hide under the bed and sob” moment, otherwise.

        • Kimmu

          Well, if we’re being accurate to the book and the source material, it should be Robert Pattinson, since Christian is Edward.

          If we’re going by what I’ve seen on tumblr, they wanted Chris Hemsworth.

          Ugh, I read the first one in a proper hate read and so I could sit down with my older sister and explain to her all of the ways the book misrepresents the BDSM community and how it was a textbook for abuse.

          • marlie

            YES. There are a couple of websites that are highlighting how this isn’t sexy or romantic, it isn’t an example of “normal” BDSM practice, and how it glorifies emotional, physical and sexual abuse. They point out how terrifying it is to hear young women (really, women of all ages) say things like “I want a guy just like Christian Grey,” or “Christian Grey is the perfect man.”

            • Kimmu

              I was also appalled at just how BAD the porn is and that people were praising it! I’m an amateur writer of smut, and if that is what passes as good porn, my own work is the James Joyce of erotica. Wait, nevermind, Joyce is a way better smut author than I could ever hope to be. I love his letters to Nora.

              That talk with my sister was so awkward and I had to be like, I am very sorry you have never read anything that was good porn, let me please find things to correct this for you.

            • demidaemon

              You are an awesome sister. I’ve been told in the past that I should try my hand at erotica (after someone read a sex scene in one of my regular short stories), but I think I’ll skip it and concentrate on putting good sex scenes into regular fiction, as it seems so lacking. 50 Shades of Grey is a prime example of why that continues to be the current maxim.

            • Kimmu

              I admit I just don’t have the patience to write out an entire long piece of original. I’d much rather just write smutty fanfic because it’s fun and try my hand at pure original smut without much context.

          • Guest

            I saw a ton of people longing for Matt Bomer, and he’s who I really pictured in the role. But I heard he had zero interest in the part, which means he’s smart as well as pretty.

            • Kimmu

              I am not ashamed to admit I spent a lot of my time trolling through the Hemsworth tag, and for a while there were tons of people whining and making graphics about how he needed to be Christian Grey, and I was like ahahahahahahaha you do realize he has a successful career, right?

    • Jessica Freeman

      He is striking. I prefer him as a sexy serial killer on The Fall. Certainly more interesting.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      He was the best thing on “Once Upon a Time”…

      • acevedob

        Yes :D

    • Imasewsure

      He is sort of hunky… love the outfit too

    • Mary Lauer

      Same same. I refuse to read the books (much better books of the same genre out there) and I don’t wanna see the movie but I have been unhealthily interested in this man since Sheriff Graham in OUAT.

    • ailujailuj

      slice? he’s the whole damn pie. find me a fork.

    • ana170

      Without the beard, all I see is Ashton Kutcher.

    • acevedob

      Yes, but he looked better with scruffiness on OUAT.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      Yum.

    • Lesley

      a man in a chunky knit sweater and his handsome good looks? come to mama

    • conniemd

      Not my type, too much pretty boy without any bad boy in his looks.

      • ailujailuj

        …it’s the pretty boys with the simple looks you have to watch out for. ;)

      • deech_sea

        After having watched “The Fall,” I find it hard to see him as anything other than a (very scary) bad boy.

        • schadenfreudelicious

          Agreed, he may have played the prettiest psychopath serial killer in recent memory, but damn did he convince in the role….

    • Youbeguilemenot

      I want to feel those hands all over me. Everywhere.

    • GorgeousThings

      An early Sausage Friday???

    • marlie

      Nope, he does nothing for me.

    • All_Hail_Great_Satin

      Go watch “The Fall” if you like Jamie Dornan. Let’s all pretend 50 Shades isn’t a thing and maybe it will go away.

      • Synnamin

        OH. The TV show! One of my favorite movies of call time is “The Fall” and I was very confused for a moment, because I did not want to be forced to watch this stupid movie just for nostalgia

        • All_Hail_Great_Satin

          Oh yeah; different “The Fall”. Although that’s a good movie too, from what I hear!

        • quiltrx

          I was with you….I’m going “I SO don’t remember this guy in The Fall”! I love the movie, too. And Lee Pace. Mmmm, Lee Pace.

    • Nicole Little

      I would.

    • Ramon Figueroa

      I might consider it watching if Charlie Hunnman had starred in it. Talk about a MAN!

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Not with that pompadour.

    • titaness25

      Uhm. This is why I was so disappointed in OUAT. They killed Sexy Scruffy Sheriff- and nothing was ever the same. Until Sexy Scruffy Hook. Don’t judge me.

    • Resl

      I really, really don’t to watch that fucking movie, but he is just so pretty. Why couldn’t they just keep him in Once upon a Time?

      • BayTampaBay

        I won’t pay to see it in first run but I will eventually see it at some point just to find out bad it really is or is not.

    • Captain_Awkward

      The “WTF?” look on his face is killing me. Please, please keep that on your face for the entire movie, Jamie. Please.

      • Lori

        If he did that I would pay full price to see it in the theater. Otherwise they’d have to pay me to sit through it, and I don’t mean minimum wage either.

    • LadyBossyBoots

      Miss BossyBoots had her first crush on Sheriff Graham on OUAT. So every time I see him in the 50 Shades publicity, my brain screams “Sheriff SkinnyJeans! No! Don’t do it!” However, I will say MissBB has excellent taste.

    • stephbellard

      I’ll have two slices please.

    • MarieLaura

      Meh. From this female perspective, he’s nothing to write home about. Classically handsome in a male model sort of way but a bit boring.

      • ShaoLinKitten

        My sentiments exactly. Or, in other words, he ain’t no Charlie Hunnam.

        • demidaemon

          Look at his underwear ads and get back to us. That is what does it for me, knowing what is probably under those clothes.

          • ShaoLinKitten

            I have. Nothing. Bodies are a dime a dozen. For me it’s all about the face, and his doesn’t do it for me. I’m psyched, because it means I don’t need to watch this movie.

            • demidaemon

              That’s good, because do you really want a reason to watch this movie? I think he’s hot, and that’s still not enough to get my but in a movie theater, buy the DVD, rent it, or watch it on Netflix.

            • ShaoLinKitten

              My plan when Charlie Hunnam was going to be in it was to rent it, fast forward, then… freeze frame.

            • demidaemon

              That might be worth it, but I would need someone who was willing to put themselves through the whole thing to let me know when the good parts were, with exact timestamps.

            • ShaoLinKitten

              I would have done it for you if it was Charlie. For Jamie, I’m not your gal, but I’m sure a website will go up that will be devoted to exactly those time stamps.

    • forcingasmile

      Oh no oh no oh no oh NO

      Fucknuggets. I’m really am going to have to watch this this movie, aren’t I?

      • demidaemon

        No, you don’t. Just watch the teaser trailers. Don’t force yourself into early brain death.

    • Lilyana_F

      50 shades of why, Jamie…

    • dorothea_brooke

      Pfft an all y’all. I was on to this Dornan kid way back when he was in the “Marie Antoinette” movie back in aught six. He can rock a tricorn hat.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        OK-now I recognize him-he was Count Fersen in Marie Antoinette, wasn’t he?

    • jabenn

      A little Liam Neeson in the first shot? No surprise, since Jamie’s also Irish.

    • SophieCollier

      Eh. He has silly hair.

    • editrixie

      Couldn’t care less about him, but I clicked hoping there might be a glimpse of Max Martini, who is playing the bodyguard (why, why, why, Max, why do you do this to your fans?). Sadly they’re only from the back. but at least it looks like he’s smiling.

    • ConnieBV

      He’s cute in stills, but much like Cumberbatch, the really attractive bits of him are only evident in motion on the screen. There is a magnetism to him that just doesn’t translate unless he turns it on and really gives it to ya.

    • oohsparkley!

      The Fifty Shades discussion – blah, blah, blah. I read it, it was bad, I still enjoyed it and I’m not going to pretend that I won’t be going to see this yummy guy in the movie. I have a high tolerance for bad entertainment if I get to look at pretty people. Off topic, but I’ve been watching Parenthood and while it has tons of actors that I truly love. I find that show soo annoying! Soo much angst! So many whiny characters. Yet I’ll still watch it. Back on topic: That’s a pretty dude! I want to run my tongue right up his body.

    • http://victoriapavlova.com Victoria Pavlova

      Poor boy has one facial expression in all 50 shades related photos. I’ve seen him in The Fall, he has a range, but it never shows here.
