Fifty Shades Freed Led Jamie Dornan To Practically Beg For His Next Role

Jamie Dornan in the fall

Jamie Dornan has taken his clothes off in three Fifty Shades trilogy movies, not to mention signed on for plenty of other adult roles. Thus, when the opportunity arose for him to do voice work in a children's movie, Dornan was all in. He recently revealed on The Graham Norton Show he practically pleaded for the gig, noting,

I've played a lot of creepy characters so my kids can't watch anything I'd done so I basically begged Universal to give me a part. I loved it and it was an amazing experience, but doing voice over made me very uncomfortable.

Jamie Dornan has a bunch of movies coming up, including A Private War, Robin Hood, My Dinner With Herve, and the upcoming animated flick Trolls World Tour. Dornan actually has kids, so doing an animated movie that his kids could attend and enjoy watching became a priority to the actor as he was wrapping Fifty Shades Freed up.

Although he was super game to do voice work in Trolls World Tour, Jamie Dornan did share with Graham Norton that voice work is not the easiest task. He also said it made him "very uncomfortable," which is a little surprising since you'd think the "wee-bag" and various other things related to the nude scenes he shot for Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed may have taken the cake there.

Likely, the nudity is a different kind of uncomfortable than doing voice work, however. (Although if you ask co-star Dakota Johnson, the nude scenes were more "tedious" than anything.)

Jamie Dornan has two daughters with his wife Amelia Warner, whom he married in 2013. The couple recently announced a third kid is on the way as well. His youngest right now is about two and a half and his older daughter will celebrate her fifth birthday this November, which means she is certainly old enough to watch and engage with an animated movie like Trolls World Tour.

Trolls World Tour won't be out for some time, however. The Universal Pictures movie was originally expected to be released in April of 2020, although it has shuffled its dates a tad so that Fast & Furious 9 can take the April slot. The flick is now expected to be released on April 17, 2020.

Along with Jamie Dornan, Trolls World Tour is expected to star James Cordon, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Sam Rickwell, Chance the Rapper, Kelly Clarkson and many more. Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick will also headline the movie, which is a sequel to the 2016 film Trolls.
