Jamie Dornan addressed rumors that Ian Somerhalder is replacing him as Christian Grey in the hit Fifty Shades trilogy. Is the Vampire Diaries star taking over Dornan’s part in the erotic thriller, or can fans expect to see Dornan back in action when Fifty Shades Darker hits theaters in February?

E! News reports that Dornan commented on his future with the franchise during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week. The actor admitted that he can tell the difference between fans of Fifty Shades and those of The Fall and teased that the sequels “are going to ruin the franchise.”

Dornan was obviously joking, but was the actor hinting at something else?

“Supposedly, I heard that Ian Somerhalder is replacing you in that,” Kimmel asked Dornan. “Do you know anything about that? Is that true?”
