Many Fifty Shades of Grey fans felt dejected after learning British actor Henry Cavill was just pulling everyone's legs when he pretended to be interested in taking on the role of Christian Grey's rival in the sequel. But the latest casting rumors will lift your spirits: Theo James is reportedly being considered for Jack Hyde — and the only problem I see here is that it will be extremely difficult to believe Anastasia Steele would reject his advances.
