After A Year Of Hollywood's Leading Ladies Fighting Over The Role, Porn Star Linda Lovelace Finally Gets Cast

is set to play Linda Lovelace, the star of legendary porn “Deep Throat,” in a biopic on the actress.

But this casting news didn’t come easy.

Two separate Lovelace projects have been kicking around Hollywood for over a year, and just about every blonde ingenue in town has been attached to one of them at some point.

The first is not the one Seyfried won the part in: called “Inferno” and later “Ordeal,” it got early press because Lindsay Lohan was obsessed with using it as a vehicle for her acting comeback.

But when Lohan went to rehab last November, she was dropped from the film. Malin Akerman of “Watchmen” stepped in to replace her.

Meanwhile, a competing Lovelace project cropped up — though Olivia Wilde entertained taking on the role, Kate Hudson was eventually attached to star.

When Hudson got pregnant, she dropped out — and has now been replaced by Seyfried.

That’s an awful lot of storyline for a movie about porn.
