Demi Moore’s career has enjoyed a recent mini-revival, thanks to strong performances in supporting roles like “Margin Call” and “Another Happy Day”. She’s discovered something of a groove as an ensemble player, having long since exhausted her cred as a leading lady. Now, Moore is set to take another small (but crucial) part in the biopic of 70s porn legend Linda Lovelace, aptly titled “Lovelace”. She will be playing feminist icon Gloria Steinem, whose writings changed the psycho-social mindsets of women around the world. And that of many men too, in fact.
The title role will be played by Amanda Seyfried, who’s never been shy about taking her clothes off for the camera. Lovelace shot to fame/notoriety through the porn flick “Deep Throat”. She later claimed she was abused, and went on to become a women’s rights activist. The indie drama also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Sharon Stone, Juno Temple, Wes Bentley, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Romeo Brown and James Franco, in a cameo as Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.
“Lovelace” is directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. It still has no confirmed release date yet.
