It appears Jamie Dornan is hanging up his Christian Grey suit and exchanging it for a crisp white coat.
The 37-year-old actor is set to star in an upcoming TV show based on Wondery’s Dr. Death podcast, according to Deadline. Dornan will play the titular character, Dr. Christopher Duntsch, a Dallas spinal surgeon who became (in)famous for his several botched cases, despite alerts from colleagues.
The series will also star Alec Baldwin (Saturday Night Live) and Christian Slater (Mr. Robot). Baldwin will play Robert Henderson, a traditional neurosurgeon who teams up with Randall Kirby (Slater), a vascular surgeon, to stop Duntsch from operating on any more patients.
Although UCP has the rights to the project, the studio is currently accepting offers from networks and streaming platforms, so let the games begin.
