We have found Fifty Shades of Grey's Mrs. Robinson!
Variety reports that longtime Hollywood sex symbol Kim Basinger is set to play the pivotal role of Elena Lincoln in the hit franchise's first sequel, Fifty Shades Darker. Fans of the books already know how much Elena shapes the story. As Christian Grey's business partner and former lover, she's definitely an influential character that befits someone as talented as Basinger.
Even author E.L. James is excited about this news
Basinger has a long and esteemed history of playing sexy characters. Whether it's her sexy laundromat striptease in Wayne's World 2, her tantalizing femme fatale in L.A. Confidential, or her adulterous wife in The Door in the Floor, Basinger has made an indelible mark on cinema's seductive history.
With this role as Elena, the actress could introduce her sultry side to a whole new generation.
With Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan reprising their roles as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, this is the first new cast member to be added to the sequels.
