    Former rugby player Thom Evans says he auditioned for the role Christian Grey in the upcoming erotic film, 'Fifty Shades of Grey'.

    The 29-year-old Scottish player said he auditioned for the part of the charismatic business man with a penchant for S&M, reported Daily Express.

    "I actually went up for Jamie's (Dornan's) role of Christian Grey. The audition was pretty tame to be honest, but it was a great experience for me," Evans said. The sports star lost out the part to 'The Fall' actor Jamie Dornan but described him as a 'role model'.

    "It's such a huge project and I'd be lying to say I wouldn't have loved to have got the role. But I think Jamie is perfect for it and I can't wait to see it," he added.

    The film is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and also stars Dakota Johnson, Jennifer Ehle, Rita Ora and Marcia Gay Harden. Earlier, Charlie Hunnam was selected to play Christian Grey, but after facing a backlash from female fans of the book and also due to dates issue, the actor backed off and then Jamie Dornan was finalised for the role.

      Fifty Shades of Grey is expected to hit theatres on February 14 on Valentines Day.
