LINDSAY LOHAN TO PLAY LINDA LOVELACE. YES, YOU'VE READ IT RIGHT.

Now, it does sound kinda natural, no? Lindsay Lohan will enter "Inferno" down on her knees, since she has taken the lead role in the new biopic. Describing the world of the adult entertainment, "Inferno" will tell the story of the famous porn star Linda Lovelace. Joining Lindsay Lohan, Bill Pullman will play "Playboy" founder Hugh Hefner.
Here's what the producer of the movie said about their decision to chose Lohan for the role of Lovelace: I would say it's probably one of the most challenging roles any actor could play, and not because of the sexual content, necessarily, but more because she was so battered and beat up emotionally, that I think it's gonna take everything Lindsay has, to really be able to pull it off. Not that Lindsay's life is similar in any way, but she's been through a lot of ups and downs. A lot of times you're loved and then you're hated, and I think she can relate to those emotions and feelings. One week she's the 'it' girl, and the next, she's the 'what are you doing?' girl.

  1. BILL PULLMAN IS PLAYING HUGH HEFNER?! I am totally cracking up over here. Not my Bill! Not my "While You Were Sleeping" HERO!

  2. Well, Kristin, Bill has soul (or some other more vivid organ) as well :))

  3. I was about to post about this, but refrained. Personally I think Linds would be eons better than Anna Farris who has never impressed me. Hopefully it gets her back on the right track, but I'm not getting too caught up just in case it doesn't.

  4. Hey, Andrew, I must admit I personally don't have a huge problem with Lindsay playing the role (I generally don't have an opinion of her as an actress), I just don't understand the people who make a movie about this.

  5. I think it's a great role for any young actress and if done right can be like BOOGIE NIGHTS which really captures the 70s. So if Lindsey can pull it off, then good for her.

    I'm with Kristin Rae who mentioned WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING! He was great in that movie as he was in INDEPENDENCE DAY, well that was a nice paycheck basically anyone could've played that role, & LOST HIGHWAY.

    Hollywood can sometimes successfully deal with this topic as seen in not only BOOGIE NIGHTS but THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT.

  6. I don't get that either Dez...

    She is a good actress though, at least in the things I've seen her in. There is talent in there. I hope she's able to straighten her life out, though something tells me a role like this isn't going to do it...

  7. Nadir and Kristin, I agree with you about WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING!

  8. All I can say is that this is going to be awesome. Period. It will be like "I Know Who Killed Me" Part 2. Hopefully in this one she also loses a limb and curses up a storm.

    Oh, I see you already have a whole plot imagined for her :PP

  10. Surprise, surprise... well not really. I'll disagree with the director who says it's going to take all she has. It should be a fairly easy role for her, since she's already pretty screwed up. She's going to be the new Elizabeth Berkley. From the innocent Saved By The Bell years to the down the toilet years. The only question is will Lohan be able to pull herself out of the gutter like Berkley seems to have.

  11. Berkley is out of the gutter???? What is she doing now? I haven't heard about her for a decade.

  12. @Dezmond - last time I heard she was hosting some short of cable show called Step It Up and Dance.

  13. I'm sure that it will have an Oscar-winning script...I think that the cast will keep me away from this one, Dez.

  14. My curiosity will almost certainly get the better of me here, but really, what's the point of telling this story? Jesus, do we love wallowing in the gutter these days or what...

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yep, the cast, the idea, the script, everything could keep us away from watching this movie, but as Matty said - it's possible that curiosity will get the better of us :)

    Answer, so she's not acting anymore? I like watching dance shows :)

  16. @Dezmond - she's had a bunch of bit parts on TV shows.

  17. I'm not interested in this one. I didn't even know who's Linda Lovelace. Before my time, must be. :) Even if it was some name known to me, I still wouldn't be interested.
    Then again, I'm not a fan of biopics.

  18. Marko Linda is the star of the most famous porn movie DEEP THROAT :)

  19. History book famous? :) Yes, I've heard of that movie, in some TV show about movie history. Or something like that... Didn't bother to see it, or remember its actors though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. yes, yes, history book famous :) because the main actor in the movie was known as the owner of the biggest "tool" in the porn industry :)

  21. Here's a link to INSIDE DEEP THROAT a documentary narrated by Dennis Hopper

    It's really a fascinating look into this movie that grossed over 600 MILLION BUCKS! So, for those interested in history, check it out!

  22. Doesn't sound too interesting to me, but it just may be what this girl needs to get back on track. I think she's a pretty good actor, just needs something more substantial to prove she's got the chops. Though earlier on they planned to cast Courtney Love - I think she would have been perfect...
