Charlie Hunnam's Fifty Shades of Grey Replacement Should Be a "Fresh Face," Says Producer
US Magazine - over 3 years
Start crossing A-list hunks off the list? Fifty Shades of Grey movie producer Michael De Luca told The Los Angeles Times on Monday, Oct. 21 that he wants Charlie Hunnam's replacement in the role of Christian Grey to be a newcomer. "I feel like everyone has an idea of what these characters look like and sound like, so to present the world with fresh faces -- where no pre-conceived notions or baggage come with it -- is best," he explained. "It's like casting Superman or James Bond. A fresh face is appropriate." PHOTOS: Shirtless hunks Since Sons of Anarchy star Hunnam dropped out of the role on Oct. 12, several handsome actors have been rumored to be up for the coveted role in the film adaptation of E.L. James' erotic novel. Rumored A-list contenders -- who should perhaps be ruled out already -- include: True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard, White Collar actor Matt Bomer and Vampire Diaries hottie Ian Somerhalder. Other lesser-known actors in the running -- who may still have ...

TV: TV Club: The Borgias, “Stray Dogs”
A.V. Club - almost 5 years
When The Borgias premièred, the media it was most regularly compared to wasn’t its Showtime predecessor, The Tudors, but a video game: Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed II. An epic tale of a vendetta spanning decades, Assassin’s Creed II brought the world of Renaissance Italy to life in so memorable a fashion that it couldn’t help come to mind when discussing a show set in the same era. Rodrigo Borgia is even the main antagonist of the game, portrayed as the physical inverse to Jeremy Irons—but a schemer of equal proportions to The Borgias’ Pope Alexander VI. Jokes about crossovers between the two flourished, commenters asking when François Arnaud or Sean Harris would start leaping from buildings and pulling targets into haystacks. I mention this because after watching this episode of The Borgias, I’m almost convinced Neil Jordan read the same comments and ... Read more

Francois Arnaud Ready For Sword Fighting & More Scheming In ‘The Borgias’ Season 2
Access Hollywood - almost 5 years
Showtime’s “The Borgias” roars back with a real vengeance on Sunday, and returning as Cesare Borgias, actor Francois Arnaud is stepping into focus. Last season, the Montreal-bred actor played sidekick to Jeremy Irons’ Pope Alexander. This season, though, the rising star takes Cesare – the Pope’s loyal son, willing to plot and poison for daddy — into dark vigilante territory, with a swashbuckling flare. Being bad is definitely good in this case and makes the Season 2 return on Sunday at 10 PM a much watch.
