Even if you haven't read EL James' Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, there's no way you've missed the BDSM onslaught that has reignited flailing marriages across the United States. The go-to "mommy porn" book isn't without its detractors. After all, the book started as Twilight fan fiction and is generally not very good, which obviously means I love it.

Still, we all know this movie is going to be bad - like, campy, Showgirls bad - right? Maybe not. While I have some faith in as a director, there are certain decisions, like casting in anything - that leave a giant question mark over my head. However, today it was announced that , who in my mind is on par with Queen , will star as Christian Grey's mother.

Before you all yell out, "My mother was a crack whore," you should know that she's actually going to be playing Grey's adoptive mother, Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey. Yeah, I wish there were flashbacks of Harden playing a deranged lady, too. So, does this mean that Fifty Shades of Grey could actually be good with the addition of this new, Academy Award-winning actress? My guess is she's simply after those checks. Make that money!

Are you guys on board with Marcia Gay Harden? Let me know below and on Twitter
