Sasha Grey grabs a role in I MELT WITH YOU
Having a role in a Steven Soderbergh movie can really do wonders for your career, and perfect proof of this is Sasha Grey. Grey started off her career as an adult film star (award-winning, as a matter of fact), but then showed up in Soderbergh's indie, THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE. Since then, it hasn't been too hard for her to find work in the more mainstream film market, and she may next be showing up in I MELT WITH YOU.
Grey is in negotiations to appear in the film alongside not only Tom Jane, but also Rob Lowe and Jeremy Piven, all of whom have made their name in both film and television. Grey's potential part is said to be relatively small, but extremely important to the story.
It's pretty neat to see Grey nabbing more mainstream work after THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE, rather than have that be a one-off thing for her. She has a lot of talent, and it wouldn't be surprising to see her show up in many more films in the future.
