Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard considering porn biopic “Lovelace”

There was a time when movies being made about “Deep Throat” centered on the Watergate scandal and President Nixon’s resignation. Now there are not one but two biopics for Linda Lovelace in the works, the porn star best known for her 1972 hardcore film “Deep Throat.” Are they necessary? No. Is Hollywood going to do it anyways? For sure.

Malin Akerman has already been cast as Lovelace in Matthew Wilder’s film “Inferno,” but now Amanda Seyfried has entered negotiations to star as the adult film star in Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s competing version, “Lovelace.” Variety has the news, and says that Peter Sarsgaard is in negotiations to play Lovelace’s abusive pornographer husband Chuck Traynor (played by Matt Dillon in “Inferno”). The duo will replace previously announced stars Kate Hudson and James Franco, who left the project after Hudson became pregnant.

“Lovelace” is based on the biography “The Complete Linda Lovelace” and allegedly follows a pretty straight biopic format. The porn star became involved in the business after meeting Traynor and became well known after “Deep Throat” became one of the highest-grossing indies of all time. She later divorced Traynor after years of abuse at his hands and went on to join the anti-pornography movement.

Production is set to start in January, which is the same time that “Inferno” goes in front of the camera. Both are slated to come out in 2012, though it’s unclear whether they’ll have competing release dates as well.

Do you think two Lovelace biopics are one too many? Do you think Seyfried will do a good job in the title role? Tell us in the comments section below or on Facebook and Twitter.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
