Amanda Seyfried Will Play Linda Lovelace Now

Amanda Seyfried.

Lindsay Lohan, Olivia Wilde, Kate Hudson, and Malin Akerman have all been linked to various biopics of porn star Linda Lovelace, but now it looks like one is finally ready to go, and it's got Amanda Seyfried in the title role. Variety is reporting that Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman will direct Seyfried in Lovelace this January, with Peter Sarsgaard cast as Chuck Traynor, Lovelace's famously abusive husband. At least she'll be able to get out of her In Time bob wig (as well as a lot of other crucial pieces of wardrobe). [Variety]
