Happy Fifty Shades Friday! This week's buzz surrounded the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie cast more than the actual production, since filming is wrapped (yay!).

Marcia Gay Harden, who stars as Christian Grey's mom, Dr. Grace Trevelyan, in the Fifty Shades Of Grey flick, dished on Jamie Dornan's appeal as Christian Grey: Dornan is a mystery, just like the BDSM-loving billionaire.

"I think the point is to have somebody mysterious because if you have somebody with too much pedigree to them ... you can't stop thinking about the pedigree. You just can't. It's almost impossible in a film to do that," the Oscar winner told The Huffington Post. "I think that would be very hard to do for that role, so I think it's good that he's a bit of a mystery."

Harden couldn't stop gushing about Dornan. When asked what should reveal about the relatively under-the-radar hunk, she said, "He's beautiful. He's chiseled beauty and the camera eats it up. He's an Irish boy. ... A U.K.-based actor who has done a bit of film," she continued. "He just had a baby [with wife Amelia Warner]. ... He's a sweet guy. He does surfing. He sings little Irish ditties occasionally, or he was singing a lot of Rita Ora. He's like [in Irish brogue], 'Oh, you got that in brain now.' We're like, 'Come back to America, because you got a scene in a minute.' 'But it's in my brain!' He's sweet."

Ugh, because you didn't adore him enough already, right? KEEP READING!
