Charlie Hunnam’s Next Move

After his recent gig with Sons of Anarchy many are wondering where they can catch Charlie next. The final episode of Sons of Anarchy broke numerous records at FX, with over 6.4 million viewers. Needless to say, with Charlie becoming the main star as of Season 7, many were wondering if the loss of Ron Pearlman, and Maggie Siff, in Season 6, would result in a downtrend.

While Sons of Anarchy is now over, for Charlie Hunnam, that doesn’t mean that he’s going to disappear. Most recently, Charlie was added to The Lost City of Z, which is Bradd Pitt’s adaptation of the book by David Grann. Charlie was start opposite Robert Pattinson, and Sienna Miller, in the movie that follows a Britihs colonial, who disappears in Brazil in the 1920’s, while searching for a mythical city.

In addition, Charlie is currently playing a title role in the new King Arthur movie, which is being directed by Guy Ritche(who also directed Sherlock Holmes I and II).

Unfortunately, for fans all over the country, they won’t be able to see Hunnam in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Before movie production even began, Charlie Hunnam made headline by pulling out of the project, where he was cast in the lead role.

Needless to say, Charlie’s plate is full, and the future looks bright!

Recent Charlie Hunnam Interview

DETAILS: Someone recently posted a photo of the back of your head, front row at the Calvin Klein show. Is this your first time in Milan for Fashion Week?
Charlie Hunnam:
 No I’ve been over here once before, probably ten years ago, when I did a little campaign for Emporio Armani. I barely remembered how the whole thing works, you know? I forgot how quick the fashion shows were. It was four or five minutes. That’s a tremendous amount of work for such a brief period of time.

DETAILS: Are you seeing anything else over there?
Charlie Hunnam:
 No, just Calvin. I don’t have any interest in anything else [laughs].

DETAILS: You mentioned a stint with Armani—do you have a history modeling?
Charlie Hunnam:
 When I was a kid, probably 16 or 17, I got spotted by a model scout that wanted to represent me, and they sent me one modeling job, for Wall’s ice cream. I did one job for them, and then a catwalk shoot for Kangol caps, and decided modeling was not for me. They had an acting division as part of this agency as well, and I said, “Well, I don’t want to model, but if you want to send me on some auditions, I’m in film school, I want to be an actor, so if you want to represent me, that would be great.” And they, eh, weren’t really interested, and I just badgered and badgered and badgered them and they finally sent me out. I ended up getting the first job that they sent me out on.

DETAILS: And now you’re back at it with the Calvin Klein Reveal campaign.
Charlie Hunnam:
 I was super flattered and excited about the prospect of working with Calvin Klein, and doing a Calvin Klein fragrance specifically, because I always really liked what they did. Back when I was a kid I used to tear pages out of magazines and stick them on my bedroom wall—I had the Eternity ads on my wall and the CK One ads. My whole childhood, those were on my wall, and cut to 20 years later, being asked to be the face of one of Calvin Klein’s new fragrance is kind of surreal.

DETAILS: Did you retain any of your modeling chops?
Charlie Hunnam:
 It was humbling. You have all these tools at your disposal as an actor, you know? Movement and dialogue and all this stuff, and tools to invoke the thing you’re trying put across. When we did the TV spot I found it easy and really fun, but actual stills I found difficult. Working with Doutzen particularly, who’s an absolute master of the still, it was very queer to me that I was the rookie of the equation. I just watched her a lot and tried to replicate what she was doing. I was sort of panicked that day. I felt like I was maybe in over my head a little bit.

DETAILS: Did Doutzen offer you any tips?
Charlie Hunnam:
 She’s so sweet I don’t think she would presume to do that, you know? But I think probably without even knowing, she was immensely helpful, just in doing her thing, I feel like I learned a great deal. She’s a badass for sure, she’s awesome. Everyone had told me how great she was, and I was like ‘Ah well, we’ll see,’ sort of took it at face value, but then when I met her I was like ‘Whoa, she really is great, I see what everyone was talking about,’ like really, really smart and funny, kind of sassy, just a really cool chick.

DETAILS: Did you get to hang out during down time between shots?
Charlie Hunnam:
 No, there really wasn’t any. Marcus [Piggott, who forms a photographic duo with Mert Alas] shoots so fast, it was crazy. That’s what I learned—the fashion industry is way better, you don’t have to work nearly as hard as you do in the film industry if you’re the talent. I work 16, 17, 18 hours a day on set, and I think we were working like six hour days on this, so it’s a pretty cushy gig. Show up, look pretty for six hours, go home.
