Jamie Dornan is one of the most in-demand film actors these days because of his acting prowess in “Fifty Shades of Grey,” but for Bradley Cooper, he’s too much for his upcoming film ‘Burnt.’
According to Glamour, the 33-year-old Northern Irish actor, Dornan, had a small but important cameo role in Cooper’s upcoming film, but because of his erotic film role, the production decided to drop and cut his scenes.
Too bad, Dornan, who is supposed to play as Cooper’s rival is said to have prepared for his small role. He even decided to undergone specific lessons and training for the movie, but it seems like it’s not enough to convince the ‘Burnt’ team to include him in the film.

A spokesperson from Harvey Weinstein-produced movie verified the news by saying that all the scenes that feature Dornan’s character in it was dumped, without fully explaining the reason.
“Jamie’s role was a small cameo that was part of a back story and following the editing process is no longer part of the film.”
However, a report from The Sun states that the reason behind Dornan’s edited out scenes was his portrayal as Christian Grey in E.L James “Fifty Shades” novel that was later turned into a film, which obviously sealed his fate in other film projects.
A source said that it seems like Dornan being part of “Fifty Shades” franchise was the reason why he is being dropped from his other movies.
“It’s embarrassing. Being in Fifty Shades of Grey seems to be getting Jamie dropped from movies which he had already been cast in, rather than landing him big new roles.”
The source went on by saying that some people thought that having him appeared in the movie might off-put the viewers from the main roles and film itself which could affect the film’s goal—to have an Oscar nomination.
The source also added that featuring Dornan’s appearance won’t give the film any favors.
Dornan was not only cut out from the film but was also cut out from the original trailer and posters.
‘Burnt’ is all about Bradley Cooper’s character, Adam Jones—a chef who destroyed his career with his messy behaviors and is hoping to redeem himself by opening a Michelin restaurant.
