LOS ANGELES — Former Adam & Eve exclusive Alexis Ford has scored the role of Katherine Kavanaugh in Smash Pictures' upcoming parody of E.L. James' "Fifty Shades Darker," the second volume in the British author's best selling erotic book series.

Ford joins a cast that includes Allie Haze and Ryan Driller in the roles of college virgin Anastasia Steele and billionaire Christian Grey, the young couple caught up in a heated game of master and servant, and MILF star Julia Ann as Grey's one-time sex teacher.

Katherine Kavanaugh is Steele's best friend, a graduate student who inadvertently introduces Steele to Grey when she has to duck out of interviewing him for their school paper and sends Steele in her stead.

"Fifty Shades Darker XXX" will roll camera in June with Jim Powers directing.
