Lindsay Lohan is officially set to play 70s porn star icon/oral pleasure pioneer Linda Lovelace in the biopic Inferno. The film’s producer Walid Razaqi confirmed that Lohan secured the part, and that they’ll be an official announcement at the Cannes Film Festival. Razaqi stated, "For at least a year, the director and I have gone back and forth imagining how awesome of a performance she could give if she was in the movie." Please be more specific, Walid. Were you guys hangin’ down in the basement, passing the Sunny D and discussing Lohan’s depth and range as an actor, or did one of you casually hold up a banana and say, "I bet Lindsay Lohan could take all of this."
This isn’t the first racy project Lohan has taken on since she entered Phase 2 of career suicide. She attempted to get asses in the seats again by playing a stripper in I Know Who Killed Me, and she’ll appear topless in Machete just for the hay of it. Deep Throat seemed like a sensible next step.
