After Charlie Hunnam received quite the backlash for being cast as Christian Grey, it seems as though several Fifty Shades of Grey fans are starting to come around for him.

Many loyalists had seemingly been fixated on either White Collar's Matt Bomer or Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder landing the part.

Following chatter that the Sons of Anarchy star was thinking about relinquishing the role of the S&M-crazed CEO due to a removal petition, several fans of the racy story are now taking to social networking to voice their support.

According to International Business Times, one admirer of the English actor feels as though he's the perfect choice for Grey.

"Finally !!! Support for Charlie. I hope he doesn't back out of this role. He is perfect for CG," wrote Charlie Fan.

Another fan acknowledged Hunnam's disapproval and came to his defense in the process.

"People are haters. I love that he got the role.. I will actually attempt to read the books and will also be in anticipation for the movie.. MmMMMMm!!! I think I will actually enjoy this," IBT reader Shaniece Ricks wrote.

A third fan stated that the creative brass' choice to cast Hunnam is the sole reason she now had an immense interest in seeing the erotic film.

"Honestly I wasn't going to even see the film until I heard Charlie Hunnam was in it. He is gorgeous and a great actor," another fan posted.

Fifty Shades screenwriter Kelly Marcel stated that she'd be adhering to the original content of author James' books with lots of sex and raunchiness. The highly anticipated movie is scheduled to launch in theaters on Thursday, Aug. 1, 2014.
