LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charlie Hunnam will likely have to bare all and engage in some very graphic sex scenes as the leading man in "50 Shades of Grey," but he says it's not a new dimension for him.

The "Sons of Anarchy" star says years ago, he was in a miniseries called "Queer as Folk" and there were explicit sex scenes, so he doesn't see his role as Christian Grey as a problem but an exciting challenge.

After months of speculation, the 33-year-old Hunnam was chosen to play Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, the main characters in the erotic, best-selling novel "50 Shades of Grey," by E. L. James. Hunnam talked about his role on Saturday night as he attended the premiere of the sixth season of "Sons of Anarchy."
