For a while, it seemed that, of the two planned biopics about the late 1970's porn star Linda Lovelace, the Amanda Seyfried-starring Lovelace was getting the most traction. It recently added four actors to its cast and started production last month. Now it looks like the other Lovelace biopic, Inferno: a Linda Lovelace Story starring Malin Akerman (Watchmen) in the lead role, is finally putting together its cast as well.
So let's step back for a moment for Lovelace, which has also announced some new cast members. Deadline reports that Demi Moore, Eric Roberts and Adam Brody have all joined the cast. Moore will play feminist author Gloria Steinem, while Roberts is playing lie detector expert Nat Laurendi and Brody is playing Lovelace's Deep Throat co-star Harry Reems.
Meanwhile, Inferno, which, at one point, had Lindsay Lohan in the lead role until she was either fired or quit, has added cast members as well. Variety reports that Adam Goldberg (Saving Private Ryan), Harold Perrineau (Lost) and former porn star-turned-actress Sasha Grey (The Girlfriend Experience) have been cast in the movie. Goldberg will play Reems in Inferno, while Perrineau will play Lovelace's sometimes-lover Sammy Davis Jr. Grey's role in the movie was unspecified. More on Lovelace and Les Mis >>
