Jamie Dornan visited a sex dungeon to prepare for 'Fifty Shades'

When an actor gets cast as a cop, he or she might go for a ride along with a real-life cop to prepare. Or when an actor gets cast as a lawyer, he or she might shadow a lawyer. So what happens when you get cast as the world’s prettiest man who also happens to be a major fan of S&M? Well, you hit the gym … and then visit a sex dungeon on your way home.

Jamie Dornan, who will play Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey, recently revealed to Elle UK that his research process involved more than learning how to wear jeans so they sit perfectly on his hips. He also visited a sex dungeon. “I went there, they offered me a beer, and they did…whatever they were into. I saw a dominant with one of his two submissives,” he said.

Dornan seemed like he had some fun with it, saying, “I was like: ‘Come on, guys, I know I’m not paying for this, but I am expecting a show.’ It was an interesting evening.”

Most importantly, once he returned home to his wife and newborn child, “I had a long shower before touching either of them.”

Technically, that shower could also be considered research for his role.

Aaron Paul joins '9th Life of Louis Drax' cast

Aaron Paul’s career has shown no signs of slowing downyou could say he has a Need for Speedwith several film roles lined up through the rest of 2014 and into 2015. And on Tuesday, Miramax announced another project in the works for the “Breaking Bad” actor.

Paul has been cast in the upcoming The 9th Life of Louis Drax, joining Jamie Dornan. Paul will play the title character’s father, Peter, who is at the center of a criminal investigation following his son’s near-fatal accident on his ninth birthday.

Louis Drax himself has not been cast, but Dornan will play Dr. Allan Pascal, who tries to uncover the mysteries surrounding the accident in what becomes a supernatural thriller.

Drax is set to release in 2015 and will be helmed by Horns director Alexandre Aja. The film is based on Liz Jensen’s novel of the same name.

Jamie Dornan to star in 'The 9th Life of Louis Drax'

No matter how good he looks in light-wash jeans, Jamie Dornan is more than just the man behind Christian Grey. The Fifty Shades actor is set to star in The 9th Life of Louis Drax, a new psychological thriller from Miramax that also has Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) in the director’s chair.

The 9th Life of Louis Drax, penned by first-time screenwriter Max Minghella (you may know him from acting turns on The Mindy Project and The Internship), tells the story of Louis Drax—beginning on the character’s 9th birthday, when, according to a press release, he “suffers a near-fatal fall.” Enter Dornan as Dr. Allan Pascal, who works to discover the “strange circumstances surrounding the young boy’s accident,” a mystery that will test “the boundaries of fantasy and reality.”

The 'Fifty Shades of Grey' trailer has arrived

Fifty-Shades-Of-Grey.jpg

In the first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey, Dakota Johnson is a mousy girl with a notepad who makes an impression on Jamie Dornan’s laser-gazed billionaire Christian Grey. If I recall correctly, his corporation puts her bookstore out of business and they become unlikely online pen-pals after meeting in a chat room. And then they have lots of sex. The end.

Enjoy. READ FULL STORY

Marcia Gay Harden talks shame-reading 'Fifty Shades of Grey,' Jamie Dornan singing between takes

Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden, who’ll star as Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey in the adaptation of E L James’ Fifty Shades of Grey, is clearly the person you want sitting next to you at a dinner party. She knows how to keep a conversation lively, as Jessica Shaw and Tim Stack  discovered Monday when Harden, who’s now starring on ABC’s comedy Trophy Wife, popped by Entertainment Weekly Radio’s TV Editors Hour. In addition to explaining why she wanted to hate her Trophy Wife co-star Malin Akerman but couldn’t, she also dishes on her first time reading Fifty Shades of Grey: “When I was cast in it, I hadn’t read it yet, so I did download it and I did shame-read it, and I don’t know why, because I’m like, ‘Hello, you’re gonna know I’m in it anyway, so I have to read it for research.'” (Her prep also included some online research that she prefers not to elaborate on, she joked.)

As for shooting the movie, which will hit theaters in February 2015, it wasn’t too scandalous — for her. “I play Mama Grey, so it’s like, unless you’re in the red playroom with a toy in your hand and flesh in your face, it’s sort of like any other movie that you could do. I throw the dinner parties. ‘Hello, let’s sit down to dinner,'” she said. “But the story is so intriguing, and I think so many people have read it, and it is erotic. … I like looking and thinking, ‘Why did we anthropologically select for erotic pleasure in pain?’ It’s really interesting to me. And E L James has the answer.”

Harden also revealed one fun fact about Jamie Dornan, the Irish actor cast as her infamous son Christian: “Behind the scenes, he’ll jump into an Irish ditty, or he was singing a lot of Rita Ora,” she offered. Ora plays Mia Grey in the film. “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.”

New 'Fifty Shades' pic shows Ana kissing Christian -- PHOTO

First there was the filming photo of Christian (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) having a cup of tea (shockingly, not a euphemism), and the newest filming candid from Fifty Shades of Grey shows the actors embracing while Ana goes for a kiss outside what is likely Grey Enterprises. (For those that have remained blissfully unaware thus far, that’s the company where Christian is CEO.)

What’s next? Well, considering the subject matter, perhaps soon the behind-the-scenes photos won’t be quite so PG…as fans of the series are no doubt hoping.

Fifty Shades of Grey, directed by Sam Taylor-Wood, will be in theaters Feb. 13, 2015.

Get it? Because of the tea?

Okay, so maybe this first photo from the set of Fifty Shades of Grey pictures stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson filming the movie’s least explicit scene. Still, seeing it should be exciting to fans — who know that as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele sit for a cup of tea at the Portland Coffee House, the story’s heroine is thinking some very dirty thoughts:

“I surreptitiously gaze at him from beneath my lashes as he stands in line waiting to be served. I could watch him all day… he’s tall, broad-shouldered, and slim, and the way those pants hang from his hips… Oh my. Once or twice he runs his long, graceful fingers through his now dry but still disorderly hair. Hmm… I’d like to do that. The thought comes unbidden into my mind, and my face flames. I bite my lip and stare down at my hands again not liking where my wayward thoughts are headed.”

Oh my indeed!

Jamie Dornan on Christian Grey role: 'I don't fear it' -- EXCLUSIVE

In a matter of weeks, Jamie Dornan will suit up to play the damaged billionaire Christian Grey — opposite Dakota Johnson’s Anastasia Steele — in the adaptation of  E L James’ bestselling novel Fifty Shades of Grey. The Northern Irish actor landed the role through a circuitous route, replacing Sons of Anarchy actor Charlie Hunnam after he dropped out of the film in mid-October. In this week’s cover story, he spoke with EW exclusively about his trek through the audition process and how he’s prepping his body for the part.

It’s the most high-profile role of Dornan’s career, one he’s approaching both rationally and with a great degree of excitement. “I certainly don’t fear it,” Dornan says. “I already got a glimpse into working with [director] Sam [Taylor-Johnson] at the test, and I’d met [co-star] Dakota [Johnson] by then. So I had a glimpse into how I felt it would be if I got the part. None of it scared me.”

Dornan initially performed an audition on tape for the first round of casting but didn’t progress to a face-to-face meeting until Hunnam bailed last month. “You know, one door closes, another opens,” Dornan says. “When he dropped out, I didn’t instantly think, ‘Oh here we go, maybe I should cancel that holiday,’ but I did feel that maybe we’d revisit the idea of me.”

Revisit they did. Dornan was flown out to Los Angeles for an intense, day-long audition opposite Dakota Johnson, who had landed her role in early September. The two re-enacted the initial interview scene when Ana first meets Christian at his spacious office in Seattle, followed by the climactic scene near the end of the book.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' author E L James on the film: 'I'm terrified' -- EXCLUSIVE

Best-selling author E L James doesn’t give many interviews these days, but she agreed to sit down in Beverly Hills with EW last week, as part of our cover story on the film version of the first book in her trilogy, Fifty Shades of Grey, to discuss all that casting controversy, the intensity of her fans, the criticism of Christian Grey’s backstory, and her hopes for the film. She proved to be as direct and unfiltered as her books are, beginning with how she’s feeling about the new movie.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: The film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey is about to start shooting in Vancouver. How are you feeling about it?
E L JAMES: I’m terrified. Completely. I’ve been terrified from the moment I published the book.  My mother was terrified of everything, and so am I. It’s a terrible way to grow up. You don’t expect this kind of success. Even now it floors me. My only ambition for the books was to see them in bookstores. This is huge. And there is this passionate fandom; we need to get this right for them.
