Henry Cavill once joked about playing this role

Way back in 2015, strong rumors about Henry Cavill getting cast in Fifty Shades Darker circulated. Fans had hoped to see him as Jack Hyde, Anastasia Steele’s boss. During The Man From U.N.C.L.E press tour, the actor was asked about it, and he toyed with the idea of it. He neither confirmed nor denied it. Later on, when things got out of hand, the actor later revealed that he was just “messing” around with everyone. He wasn’t a part of the erotic franchise.

Apparently, the actor was “harrassed” to take on the lead role, Christian Grey, in the first movie; we know now that went to Jamie Dornan. Cavill had denied the casting news, but unfortunately, it fell on deaf ears. After the first movie was out and it was confirmed that Cavill wasn’t in it, rumors about him in the sequel started gaining ground. But this time, the actor decided not to deny it outright and used a different “tactic”. 

“Now the question is, ‘Are you going to be in ‘Fifty Shades Darker.’ And I thought, I’m going to try a different tact this time. See what they say. And so I tried a different tact,” he told USA Today

Cavill enjoyed the “extraordinary” reaction of the people and hoped to do it again and make a “social experience out of it.
