According to reports, Holmes is keen on playing Elena Lincoln, Christian Grey's longtime business and sex partner with a wildly kinky side. Katie Holmes? Kinky? Really?
Elena's character is described as having platinum blond hair, and sources say brunette Katie doesn't mind brightening up her locks if it means joining the franchise. Apparently, she's looking at this role as her opportunity to shock audiences and reinvent herself after being best known as Joey Potter and Mrs. Tom Cruise.
Given Holmes hasn't seen box office success in years, perhaps playing Christian Grey's S&M mentor wouldn't be such a bad thing? Close your eyes, Suri.
