Jamie Dornan's Next Film Role Could Actually Be Hotter Than Christian Grey

He may officially be Christian Grey to many of us, but Jamie Dornan has landed his first post-Fifty Shades of Grey movie role. And it sounds hot. Hotter than Christian Grey? Quite possibly. And yet again, Dornan nabbed the lead role in the film. I think it's safe to say this (very sexy) man is about to become a household name, if he hasn't already.


Dornan will be starring in the movie adaptation of The 9th Life of Louis Drax, which has been deemed a "psychological thriller." The story is about Louis Drax, who has a near-death experience on his ninth birthday, and Dr. Allan Pascal (Dornan), who is trying to crack the mystery of what happened in the strange events that followed the boy's experience. Actually, sounds pretty good -- and much, much different than Fifty Shades of Grey, which kind of leads me to believe Dornan doesn't want to be pigeon-holed as an actor. Can't blame him.

I've been curious to see what Dornan would wind up doing after Fifty Shades. I'm sure he's thrilled to have nabbed such a sought-after role, but at the same time, I'm sure he doesn't want to be "the Fifty Shades guy" forever. Doing a film like this -- a "psychological thriller," if you will -- seems like a smart way to go.

Of course, shooting for The 9th Life of Louis Drax doesn't start until October and Fifty Shades will be released this February, so until then ... he's just going to have to stick with being Christian Grey. Not a bad gig, if you ask me.

Are you happy with Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey?
