Whoa! Hail to the king indeed!
Charlie Hunnam passing on playing Christian Grey may have turned out to be the best thing for everyone, because he looks way hotter with a sword than in a suit!
The Sons Of Anarchy star is playing the titular king in Guy Ritchie‘s take on the legend of King Arthur, and based on what we’re seeing it’s going to be a bit sexier than previous incarnations.
Kind of like we see Charlie himself, this Arthur is a bit of a bad boy. Charlie said:
“He’s a little bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler. He’s a street kid. There’s definitely a harder edge to him than people would imagine. It’s sort of classic Guy Ritchie stuff.”
In fact, Ritchie has been planning that departure from the start! He said:
“I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland. The two qualities make rather compatible bed companions. Unfortunately, they’re not interesting to watch. Luke Skywalker was always the most uninteresting character in Star Wars because he’s the good guy. Good guys are boring.”
We are def ready to see what Charlie brings to the round table!
Ch-ch-check out all the sexy pics (above)!
