There are currently two Linda Lovelace biopics in the works, making the casting announcements all the more confusing. Plus, I still immediately think of the Robin Williams penguin in Happy Feet whenever I hear Lovelace (why did they name a character in a kids movie after a porn star?). For clarification Lovelace is the movie starring Amanda Seyfried as Linda Lovelace, James Franco as Hugh Hefner, and now Demi Moore as Gloria Steinem.
Gloria’s role in Linda’s life, and thus the movie was exposing the abuse Linda suffered within the porn industry. (Check out more details from TheGrindstone, as well as their opinion on the news, here.) I feel bad for those involved in the other Lovelace biopic coming out in 2013, Inferno. It’s going to be really hard to beat this cast.
