Charlie Hunnam has just made the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly a must have! The handsome Sons of Anarchy star who is soon going to grace the big screen as King Arthur in the epic medieval drama, The Knights of the Round Table is showing his first look in the new issue of EW.
Charlie Hunnam has channeled his inner King avatar as the robust and rough bearded Arthur on the new issue of EW.
We get to see the handsome Charlie Hunnam don different looks as he flaunts his perfectly built body and striking looks inside the pages of Entertainment Weekly.
In the cover story, Hunnam and Ritchie revealed how King Arthur is a new take on the age-old epic story.
The English filmmaker says that this version of the storied tale will be less "nice and bland," because, "good guys are boring."
Does it mean that Charlie Hunnam is going to be the bad king again? We are in love with Hunnam as bad boy leader Jax Teller on Sons of Anarchy and knowing being good is boring is music to the ears!
"He's a little bit rough around the edges, but he's basically a survivor. He's a hustler," Hunnam describes.
"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."
Although the movie is not releasing until next summer, you can know more about the upcoming epic drama after the Entertainment Weekly hits newsstands today. Until then, check out the mag's sexy photos of the actor on set. Shot by Marc Hom, Charlie Hunnam shows his strong and masculine side as King Arthur in the first look.
After playing the bad leader Jax Teller for 7 seasons in Hamlet-inspired Sons of Anarchy, Charlie Hunnam is coming back as King Arthur, thanks to Guy Ritchie. EW captured the first look of the bloodstained prince.
Back As The Bad King
Ritchie said, "I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland. 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."
King Arthur From A Different Perspective
Arthur has been shown with Merlin, a sword and a stone, or a lady and a lake before. Ritchie however will show the King orphaned as an infant and raised by three prostitutes in the fifth-century version of London. Ritchie describes him as a street-wise hood. "He's a little bit rough around the edges, but he's basically a survivor. He's a hustler," Hunnam says. "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."
Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur will have "giant snakes, massive war elephants, and a monstrous viking-like creature known as The Nemesis," as per E.W. "Hopefully, loyalists won't be too offended by what we've done," producer Lionel Wigram told the mag.
Shot by Danish photographer, Marc Hom, Charlie Hunnam is looking smoking hot as King Arthur with his sword.
Although the actor has a built physique, he revealed to Elle Canada that he had been fighting hard to get in shape for playing King Arthur. "I tend to do whatever I think is appropriate for the character," Hunnam told the mag.
After playing Jax, we are sure to see Hunnam with a little shade of grey as King Arthur in Guy Ritchie's anticipated film.
