Sasha GreyTop porn star Sasha Grey has landed an odd new movie role as a Bible-wielding teen who takes a purity pledge and refuses to have sex before marriage.

The adult film star, who has appeared in over 180 porn movies in the past four years, has signed up to star in new horror film Hallows -- as an unlikely virgin.

Writer/director Richard O'Sullivan says, "We toyed with offering Sasha another sexier role in the film, but she fell in love with the idea of playing against type, portraying the exact opposite of what the public perceives her to be."

It's not Grey's first non-porn movie -- the 22-year-old star won rave reviews last year for her lead performance in Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience.

Ironically, top Christian film star Christina Cupo will also play against type -- as a heavily pierced and tattooed goth girl with a fondness for sadomasochism in the movie.
