It was a scramble to find a new Christian Grey after Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the project, but now the author of "Fifty Shades of Grey" has confirmed the new choice.

Announcing the news to fans, E L James tweeted, "Stow your twitchy palms ladies... our man is here. Welcome to #TeamFifty @ Jamie Dornan1 x"

The 31-year-old British actor is best known from his current role in "Once Upon a Time" and also appeared in the BBC series, "The Fall."

Ladies will be happy to know that Jamie has the physique to bring the steamy story to life as he previously worked as a Calvin Klein underwear model.
