CRASH actor James Spader only agreed to star in the SECRETARY because it gave him the opportunity to spank co-star Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Having originally rejected the role, Spader changed his mind after seeing DONNIE DARKO stunner Maggie's audition tape.

He says, "I think I would have quite a time spanking the hell out of her."
