Can this man be any more SEXIER! *drools* lol Charlie Hunnam is invited to my roundtable anytime! 😛 I mean, look at those eyes and that rugged look. Ok. I digress. For now.
So, Entertainment Weekly released these sexy photos of Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur, as well as a sneak peek of what fans expect to see in Guy Ritchie’s ‘Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur.’
According to Hunnam, this is a Guy Ritchie’s version of King Arthur, “He’s a little bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler. He’s a street kid. There’s definitely a harder edge to him than people would imagine. It’s sort of classic Guy Ritchie stuff.”
“I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland,” Ritchie said. “The two qualities make rather compatible bed companions. Unfortunately, they’re not interesting to watch. Luke Skywalker was always the most uninteresting character in Star Wars because he’s the good guy. Good guys are boring.”
Check out the behind-the-scenes video with Charlie Hunnam here.
The project is a re-imagining of the legend of King Arthur, believed to have been a 6th century king who defended Britain against Saxon invaders. The key source material for the film will be Thomas Mallory’s “Le Morte d’Arthur,” published in 1485 as a compilation of French and English tales.
