7 Men Who Should've Been Mr. Grey

50 Shades of Grey hits theaters February 13, 2015. It is based on a book that awakened the sex drives of millions of housewives whom have apparently never read a book by Zane. I was largely unimpressed with the trilogy but was interested in seeing Charlie Hunnam play Mr. Grey. But when that dream was shattered , they replaced him, and I was once again unimpressed. Here are seven actors that would have brought me to the theaters to see Mr. Grey. 

Jon Hamm

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. 

Shemar Moore

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. 

Sasha Roiz

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.  

Ryan Hurst

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?

Jason Mamoa

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. 

Morris Chestnut

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. 

David Giuntoli

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.
