Olivia Wilde Considering Role as Porn Star Linda Lovelace

The role that is bandied about but never seems to come to the silver screen- Linda Lovelace’s biopic chronicling her fame after the release of seminal (heh heh heh) porn film Deep Throat- may be next on the docket for Cowboys and Aliens actress Olivia Wilde.

Don’t get this version confused with the one Lindsay Lohan was originally slated to headline- her shoes were filled last year by Malin Akerman after Lohan was cut from the project. Wilde has reportedly been considering a role in a different movie surrounding the same story for quite some time, but she recently fanned the flames of those rumors by gushing about the potential to appear in a Lovelace tribute. Wilde said last week:

“It would be a tremendous honor… It’s such a cool role. She was a fascinating woman—with where she came from to Deep Throat to then working with Gloria Steinem and Nora Ephron. It’s really fascinating.” (She’s obviously done her research.)

She continued:

“I’m being very careful about my next project since I’m now in a position where I can be really picky—thank God, finally.”

Do you think Olivia Wilde would be a good fit to play Linda Lovelace?
