Secretary, the original Mr. Grey

With the Fifty Shades of Grey film poised to dominate Valentine’s Day at the box office, bringing E.L. James’ erotic bestseller to the big screen, Lionsgate would like to remind audiences of the original Mr. Grey.


Long before Christian Grey introduced Anastasia Steele to a world of pain and pleasure, Edward Grey (James Spader) was the mild-looking boss with a taste for BDSM in the sexy 2002 comedy, Secretary. Maggie Gyllenhaal played his new employee, Lee, who improbably discovers that she’s in tune with Edward’s dark side.

As luck should have it, Secretary, directed by Steven Shainberg, is being re-released on Digital HD and VOD on Jan. 27, and the newly cut trailer and poster recalibrate the tone—and the soundtrack—of their relationship to conjure a Fifty Shades vibe.
