Sharon Stone has never shied away from controversy, either on screen (see 'Basic Instinct' ) or off (see her comments on China's earthquake being "karma").

Now, according to DeadlineHollywood, the actress is joining the cast of the sure-to-be-protested comedy 'Sweet Baby Jesus,' which transplants the nativity story to '70s-era Bethlehem, Maryland. Since the events play out at Christmas time, the locals begin expecting a Second Coming.

Stone will play the mother of pregnant hippie chick Mary, a role once reportedly offered to another 50-something sex symbol, Kim Cattrall.
