With Charlie Hunnam abruptly exiting the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" film adaptation, who will take his place in the Red Room of Pain?

That's the question of the hour, as Universal scrambles to find a replacement to play Christian Grey.

While fan favorites like Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder are still considered long shots, a few new names have started floating around the Internet today ... and they're all hot.

"True Blood" hunk Alexander Skarsgard (left) is reportedly up for the role again and it's one he'd be perfect for. Anyone who watches the HBO show knows he's up for sexual situations and full-frontal nudity -- he memorably flashed his goods during the Season 6 finale.

Also in the running is former "Once Upon a Time" stud Jamie Dornan (right), who stars on the BBC serial killer drama "The Fall" and used to be a Calvin Klein model. Yep, looks like he's pretty comfortable showing off his physique as well.

Other names out there: "Divergent" star Theo James and "Magic City" hottie Christian Cooke.

So calm down, "Fifty" fans ... even though Charlie's out, Universal has some sexy second choices!
