Playing a sultry "Mrs. Robinson" character would definitely be a departure for Katie. During her marriage to Tom Cruise, she tended to take on roles that didn't involve a lot of sex, violence, or controversy. Since splitting with him, she has taken on low-key parts, including a turn on Broadway. Her next big role is alongside Meryl Streep and Taylor Swift in The Giver, based on the bestselling young adult novel.
"She’s looking at this as the role of a lifetime for her," a source tells the Enquirer. "It will shock a lot of people, but she thinks Hollywood will sit up and take notice."

The role of Elena would definitely shake up Katie's wholesome reputation!
