Amanda Seyfried Is Deep Throat

All right my peeps, get your minds into the gutter and let the talking begin. Amanda Seyfried has been cast as the infamous porn star, Linda Lovelace, in Ron Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's biopic, Lovelace. There about a million snarky comments coming to mind right now, all of them centering around my friend's reaction. "Oh no, not my innocent and beautiful Amanda." I digress.

For those of you who aren't old enough, Linda Lovelace is perhaps the most famous American porn star ever. Yeah, Jenna Jamison likes to claim that title, but none of her films ever captured the same notoriety as Lovelace's Deep Throat. I mean, it was the code word for the informant that brought down President Nixon. Lovelace and Deep Throat are pop culture icons and the film remains one of the all-time highest grossing independent movies ever made. Not too shabby for a little adult film made forty years ago.

According to Deadline, Peter Sarsgaard is in talks to play Chuck Traynor, Linda's husband and the pornographer who cajoled her into the industry. The script, by Andy Bellin and W. Merritt Johnson, is based on Eric Danville's book, The Complete Linda Lovelace.

Deep Throat was groundbreaking in that it came out at a time when porn was a highly underground industry and people actually had to go to a theater to see it. No practical porn viewing in the comfort of your own home back then. It launched what became known as "porn chic" and featured an actual plot (gasp!) and high production value. People went nuts for this movie and paid to see it over and over and over again. It was like the pervert Star Wars. I remember a certain Rainbow theater here in my hood. "Mommy, how come we can't see a movie in there?"

So what do you think? Are you hankering to see Seyfried test herself in such a notorious role? Are you shocked like my friend? Or are you thinking this is just the female version of Boogie Nights? Talk to me.

I'll be interested to see just how far they try to take this movie, and Seyfried in this role... Will the director plan on having Seyfried go the "Chloe Sevigny in Brown Bunny" route? Will they use a throat double?

Time will tell.

Melissa Bradley said...

@KevD LOL That is a very interesting question. Ol' Chloe really gave it her all didn't she? Somehow I doubt Amanda will have the same parameters.

Nebular said...

Not sure if Amanda is appropriate for this role. She's too cute and innocent-looking to play a porn star. I like her a lot though. :)

Eric said...

While I couldn't care one way or the other about the original movie, making this one just shows how terribly low the industry is that the best idea they can come up with is showcasing the life of a porn star. Really? There isn't something better we can talk about? It's Jerry Springer-esque quality on the big screen.

Oh, and Nebular is right. This actress is about as believable as a porn star as Julia Roberts was as a hooker.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Well, Boogie Nights was entertaining in a twisted sort of way...

Craig Edwards said...

Could be interesting....I thought Boogie Nights was terrific, and a companion piece focusing on one of the icons of Adult Film could be just the ticket...

Melissa Bradley said...

@Nebular Yeah, Amanda does have certain look about her that screams soft and innocent. While I think she'll bring her all to the role, her level of experience and young age may work against her.

@Eric I think a film like this was bound to happen, especially in light of the Magic Mike stripper film due out next year. I'm in agreement with Nebular too and that Amanda just doesn't have the edge to her that would seem to be required to portray a Linda Lovalace. Yep, Julia certainly was the Walt Disney version of prostitute.

Melissa Bradley said...

@Alex LOL Boogie Nights was definitely a very interesting, rather twisted film. Oh Dirk Diggler...

@Craig A film about Linda Lovelace could be interesting depending on how they use the material. I may not be a huge fan of doing a porn star bio, but Deep Throat was part of the sexual revolution and I reap the benefits being able to write erotica out loud and proud.

Empty Nest Insider said...

Not sure about Amanda, but Peter Sarsgaard should be very interesting playing someone who I'm guessing is a charismatic creep.

Melissa Bradley said...

@Empty Nester Peter Sarsgaard should be brilliant. He really knows how to get into a character and it should be interesting to see what he does with this part.

J-SON said...

I'm willing to see how far she can take the role though, I like to see if she's able to bridge the contrast between the actor and the role with good acting.

But of course, that might be just me. ;)
