Olivia Wilde may play porn star Linda Lovelace in biopic

July

tbd-oliviawilde080111.jpgNow that Olivia Wilde is single and is getting a career boost from Tron: Legacy and Cowboys & Aliens, she's starting to look at some high-profile roles. Like what? How about playing porn actress Linda Lovelace? Hey, we don't know if we'd jump at a role Lindsay Lohan wouldn't be able to play.

E!'s Marc Malkin says Wilde is looking at possibly starring in the Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman production: "It would be a tremendous honor," Wilde said. "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."

There's a possibility James Franco would be a part of the project, too, making this a light-year jump ahead of anything with LiLo's name on it, although that's a different production now starring Malin Akerman. That's right, two Linda Lovelace movies at the same time. They should make a movie about that.
