This, to me, was the most obvious choice from day one. His years as Don Draper should have been convincing enough. Perhaps he didn't want to be the sexy man in the suit anymore. But I certainly would have purchased tickets in advance to see him do it one more time.
Rumor has it that men turned down the role of Mr. Grey because they didn't want to be type-cast as the sex symbol. But here is an actor that hasn't seemed to suffer from his sex symbol status. From soap operas to crime dramas and even a Madea movie, he never disappoints. The only disappointment is his absence from the role of Mr. Grey.
Admit it, he is one of the main reasons you tune in to watch Grimm on Friday nights. With his chiseled body, deep voice, and dangerous glare, he is the embodiment of tall, dark, and handsome.
He will always go down in history as the only death on Sons of Anarchy that brought viewers to tears. The great thing about making movies from books is taking artistic license to change a few details. Who says Mr. Grey can't have a groomed beard and long hair?
Those eyes, that voice, that body, nothing more needs to be said. Game of Thrones fans know he is no stranger to passion. Red Road fans are waiting for him to demonstrate more of that passion this spring. With a shave and a hair cut, he would have breathed red hot fire into Mr. Grey.
Always a winner in a suit, he would have had no trouble filling Mr. Grey's shoes. He's charming, stoic, fit, and oh so lickable.
While reading 50 Shades of Grey, there were moments I pictured him as Mr. Grey. His presence is so unassuming that he could easily be the professional by day, freak by night commonly known as Mr. Grey. These last two seasons of Grimm have certainly reinforced that fantasy.
