The search is over! Almost two weeks after Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam dropped out of Fifty Shades of Grey, the steamy book series’s film adaption has a new leading man: Jamie Dornan.

Though the actor is a relatively unknown face – he started out as a model before appearing on the small and silver screens – we’re positive he’ll have audiences swooning when he seduces Anastasia Steele (to be played by Dakota Johnson). But don’t take our word for it, let his photos speak for themselves.

Call us biased, but we do believe gray looks good on Dornan, who provides a tease of what’s to come with this black-and-white bedroom portrait.

While we’d prefer him a little more undressed – ahem! – there’s no denying that this blazer does a nice job of bringing out his beautiful baby blues.

In case you needed one more reason to be envious of Eva Mendes: Before there was Ryan Gosling, there was this.

Forget the escalating prices of movie tickets – we’d pay almost anything to stare at that face.
