6 Surprising Charlie Hunnam Facts You May Not Know.

Charlie Hunnam is known for his role as Jax on gritty FX drama Sons of Anarchy – and that’s precisely why director Guy Ritchie wanted him for the role of King Arthur in the upcoming Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur. Next month brings Guy Ritchie‘s swinging spy action adventure The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (watch the trailer here), but the Snatch and Sherlock Holmes director is already busy on his next film, in a completely different time period yet again. In this week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story the 46-year-old explains that in order to make his King Arthur an unforgettable action hero, he needed to make a few changes. ‘I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland,’ Ritchie said, of previous film attempts, such as the poorly-reviewed 2004 King Arthur. Charlie as Arthur appears on the new issue of Entertainment Weekly along with the cover line, “Is that a sword in your hand, or are you just happy to see us?” The pair are bringing a Jax-ian edge the director thought the man so desperately needed, and they hope fans of Arthur wont be too offended.

Hunnam said in the interview that this King Arthur will be a little rough around the edges–he noted that the character was often portrayed as “nice and bland” in the past. Unfortunately, it’ll be another year until the film hits theaters, so in the meantime, keep reading to learn some surprising facts about Charlie Hunnam, then check out some of his most hilarious facial expressions plus his sexiest smirks. Below is the cover and one photo of Entertainment Weekly‘s King Arthur feature, but you’ll have to check out their photo gallery for the rest of the images: As you can see, this isn’t the same King Arthur we’ve seen in previous medieval films. He’s a hustler.’ The publication described the character as: ‘orphaned as an infant and raised by three prostitutes in the 5th century version of London, more of a street-wise hood, who looks after the people living in his tiny corner of the world.’ Another notable change to this update will be Guy’s decision to edge away from darker, more stripped-down reboots such as Batman Begins in favor of a large fantasy element. Charlie’s acting career kicked off during a drunk, last-minute Christmas Eve shopping trip, when he was approached by a talent scout for a British children’s show, Byker Grove.

James’ Fifty Shades of Grey – where he was replaced by Jamie Dornan. ‘It was very, very painful for me, that whole process, just very unpleasant,’ he said, adding: ‘I felt like I let myself down. I let those people down on Fifty Shades that I’d grown to really love and respect.’ The star, who’s been in a relationship with jewelry designer girlfriend Morgana McNelis since 2007 – cited scheduling conflicts and some ‘big personal stuff going on in my life’ as his reasoning for bowing out of the film. It’s very hard to be disciplined in that situation and understand what is going to be required to all of that work to the best of your ability and have yourself surrounded by people,’ he said.

In an interview with British GQ, Charlie said he collects Nike Air Max 90 trainers. “I’m actually scaling back the collection,” he said. “I’ve scaled it down to probably . . . 45 pairs now.” He got expelled from school. That’s what I started to do.’ ‘I do try not to dwell on the past too much because I have a tendency to do that, and as I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten very good at distancing myself from shoulda, woulda, coulda.’ This could be the start of a six-film franchise if all goes well, but the studio will likely wait to see how this one lands before proceeding with any follow-up plans. Given that Ritchie’s deal is with Warner Bros., the architects behind Zack Snyder’s wildly ambitious Justice League franchise, you can probably bet we’ll see more from Hunnam and his gang, er, band of knights. Speaking of Game of Thrones, Disney just announced that a major writer/producer on the HBO series, Bryan Cogman, will be writing a new live-action version of their popular young Arthur cartoon The Sword in the Stone.
