Actress Kim Basinger has joined the “Fifty Shades of Grey” sequel, as the cougar Mrs. Robinson.
Prepare to meet the woman who made Christian Grey dark and sexy.
Actress Kim Basinger will play Elena Lincoln—known better to fans as Mrs. Robinson—in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” sequel, “Fifty Shades Darker,” E News confirmed.
The 62-year-old will take on the role of Grey’s former flame, who taught him at a young age the ways of the S&M world.
In the books, the cougar seduced Grey( Jamie Dornnan) and remains friends with him while he dates the innocent Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson).
And, it wont be Basinger’s first foray into erotica.
The Academy-winniny actress brokeout with her role in “9 1/2 Weeks,” where she engaged in sexual matters full of bondage with a Wall Street trader, played by Mickey Rourke.
The film is slated to be released on Feb. 10, 2017, with Dornan and Johnson returning in their roles.
