Lindsay Lohan Fired From Porn Star Biopic ‘Inferno,’ Malin Akerman Steps In

Lindsay Lohan was set to star in the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic, titled Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, but after violating probation and continuing rehab, she had been fired. E! reported the story, with writer/director Matthew Wilder saying “we are withdrawing our offer from Lindsay Lohan.” Although there have been reports that the decision was mutual, 24 Frames confirms she was fired. Another source says “she wanted them to tone down a lot of the racy scenes. It wasn’t going to be good for her to play someone with substance issues when she is going through her own recovery.” So, who will replace the actress?

Deadline reports that “the producers love” Malin Akerman and she has been cast in the role. Lovelace, who starred in the infamous Deep Throat, became a leading figure in the anti-porn movement and died in a car crash in 2002. Akerman is certainly a less interesting choice than Lohan, but the acting talent is similar. She brought down Watchmen, and I haven’t been impressed in any of her recent roles (The Proposal, The Heartbreak Kid, Couples Retreat). She stars in David Wain‘s Wanderlust, which I have high hopes for after Role Models. I hope she can do something promising with this material.

Is Akerman a good replacement for Lohan?
