Jennifer Beals is joining the cast of the post apocalyptic thriller The Book Of Eli. Famous for her roles in Flashdance and as the sex addicted Bette Porter in The L Word, Beals should be able to keep up with heavy hitters Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman on set — at least we're hoping so, because I'd hate to get in that acting crossfire. Beals will be playing —I kid you not — "Oldman's sexual prize and [Mila] Kunis' mother, a blind woman doing anything she can to protect her child." Fantastic. [The Hollywood Reporter]
