from She shares a surname with the male protagonist of “50 Shades of Grey,” and she’s about to even have more in common with him. Sasha Grey, adult film turned non-adult film actress, is making her fiction debut with “The Juliette Society.”

The erotic novel, which will be released by Grand Central Publishing in the U.S. and Little, Brown in the U.K., is being hailed as a sexualized, female-dominated “Fight Club,” according to a report that first appeared in Deadline.

Grey seems like she’s got a bit more experience in her subject matter than E.L. James. She began her career in adult films six years ago, starring in videos like “Fashionistas Safado” and “Neighbor Affair 6,” and has since been interviewed on The Insider and The Tyra Banks Show and profiled by Rolling Stone. Last year, CNBC named her one of the most popular stars in porn. She seems to be the latest in a string of porn actresses who have suddenly discovered their literary aspirations.

More recently, Grey decided to try her hand at acting. Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh cast her in his 2009 drama, “The Girlfriend Experience,” and New York Times film critic A. O. Scott described her career as “distinguished both by the extremity of what she is willing to do and an unusual degree of intellectual seriousness about doing it.” She also appeared in the seventh season of the HBO hit Entourage as Vinnie Chase’s porn star girlfriend, fictionalized version of herself.

Meanwhile, James has been hinting that she’d like a cameo in the “50 Shades” movie adaption. Will Grey be writing herself into her books as well?
