The Fifty Shades Of Grey film franchise is about to introduce a crucial character!
Universal has officially locked down Kim Basinger for a part in the seXXXy sequel, Fifty Shades Darker! The blonde beauty is set to play Elena Lincoln, Christian Grey's business partner and ex-lover, in the movie adaptation of the popular E.L. James novel.
But what makes this character an important one?

Well, she's actually the one Anastasia Steele refers to as Mrs. Robinson, because she was the older woman who first seduced Christian when he was younger, AND introduced him to the world of S&M.
This casting choice seems pretty legit, since the 62-year-old is super smokin'!
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan will also return to reprise their roles as the main characters, but director Sam Taylor-Johnson will not.
Instead, the filthy flick will be helmed by James Foley!
Alright, Perezcious readers, who's excited?? SOUND OFF in the comments!
