For those of you who watched "Mad Men" in part to ogle the glory that is Christina Hendricks, brace yourselves: The actress has signed on to play a stripper in "Dark Places," the film adaptation of author Gillian Flynn's novel of the same name.

According to Moviefone, Hendricks will play a grown-up version of Krissi Cates, a stripper who has to re-evaluate her life after having accused a young man of being a child molester years earlier. Deadline Hollywood reports that she's joining Charlize Theron, Chloe Moretz, Corey Stoll and Andrea Roth on the film.

The movie centers around a twisted plot wherein Theron's character accused her brother, Stoll's character, of murdering their entire family when they were young.

There's no word on whether or not Hendricks will actually strip in the movie, so for now, best to keep your expectations to a minimum. Those of you who have seen "We're The Millers" are well aware that just because a famous signs on to play an exotic dancer doesn't mean that exotic dancing will actually occur (ahemJenniferAniston).
