Lindsay Lohan to play “Deep Throat” porn star in biopic


By Sean O’Connell
Surprise, surprise. Lindsay Lohan’s going to do porn.

OK, not exactly porn, as some of her harshest critics have predicted. But the fallen star reportedly will play “Deep Throat” actress Linda Lovelace in a planned biopic.

Lohan will not appear in the Lovelace bio directed by Rob Epstein, however. He has a film titled “Lovelace” in pre-production. Lohan, instea instead, will portray the iconic porn star in a competing independent project, “Inferno,” according to The Sun.

Bill Pullman reportedly will join Lohan in the film, playing Hugh Hefner.

“We’ve all thought that Lindsay would be a great choice for a while now,” said producer Wali Razaqi.

She’d certainly raise the awareness factor for the film. And at one point, Lohan was a talented actress, and not just a tabloid sensation. There’s no doubt she could return to the craft of acting and be taken seriously. And Lovelace could be the right redemption project, especially if it’s closer in tone to “Boogie Nights,” and not the original “Throat.” We shall see.
