Lindsay Lohan Will Be a Porn Star…In Upcoming Inferno

I bet that caught your eye, but just to clarify, she’s joining the cast of the upcoming biopic Inferno to play the role of Linda Lovelace. Lohan is set to star alongside Bill Pullman as Hugh Hefner and is a welcome addition to the cast after Anna Faris dropped out way back in 2008 after the production experienced (and may still be experiencing) financial problems.

According to LA Times, Lindsay Lohan was an ideal choice for the role due to her troubled past. In fact, Inferno producer Wali Razaqi claims that he and the director had spent the last year imagining just how “awesome” it would be to have her in the movie. Lindsay Lohan as a porn star? Funnily enough, I imagine they’re not the first men to imagine just how awesome it will be without ever hearing about Inferno. Of course, Razaqi’s reasons for the move go further then the “awesome” factor, as he explained to the LA Times:

“I would say it’s probably one of the most challenging roles any actor could play — and not because of the sexual content, necessarily — but more because she was so battered and beat up emotionally, that I think it’s gonna take everything Lindsay has to really be able to pull it off,” he said. “Not that Lindsay’s life is similar in any way — but she’s been through a lot of ups and downs. A lot of times you’re loved and then you’re hated, and I think she can relate to those emotions and feelings. One week she’s the ‘it’ girl, and the next, she’s the ‘what are you doing?’ girl.”

I know it’s no longer an option, but what do you think: Lindsay Lohan or Anna Faris?
