Porn gets a new star. Malin Akerman (Couples Retreat, Watchmen, 27 Dresses) is now confirmed to replace Lindsay Lohan in Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story according to Deadline.com. “My understanding is that Lindsay was dropped as she’s impossible to insure and the producers loved Malin,” an insider emails.
Malin, mostly known for her work in ‘Watchmen‘ and The Heartbreak Kid, has a few upcoming credits that include Wanderlust (Paul Rudd, Jen Aniston), Happythankyoumoreplease (Josh Radnor) and The Bang Bang Club (Taylor Kitsch, Ryan Philippe). She is also attached to star opposite Ethan Hawke in The Numbers Station. The Lovelace project (we really need another after Brian Grazer did one?) is based on the novel Ordeal: An Autobiography by Linda Lovelace with Mike McGrady. The producers include Chris Hanley of Muse Productions and Jordan Gertner.
Can she pull-off the porn actress bit? According to pic below, she more than fits the criteria, ahem.
