Skip to comments.Lohan Fired from Lovelace Biopic, Akerman In

Lindsay Lohan has been fired from Inferno, the Linda Lovelace biopic, following her numerous stints in rehab, legal troubles, and generally unreliable behavior.
Writer-director Matthew Wilder has been shockingly supportive up to this point, waiting patiently while the 24-year-old former actress countless attempts to overcome her addictions to drugs and alcohol. A cynical person might think Wilder was using her for the free publicity, since the movies title made an appearance in almost every story about Lohans personal decline and disappearing career.

Reportedly she’s all choked up about losing the lead in the Deep Throat biopic.
Haha. Its pretty bad when you’re fired for tarnishing the reputation of a film about a woman that fellated for a living.
She played Laurie Juspeczyk/Silk Spectre II in Watchmen and did a good job with difficult material. Fans had waited years to see the Watchmen movie made, and expectations were very high.
I don't know if I'd want to see a Linda Lovelace biopic, though. I wonder how they'll deal with LL's later accusations?
that’s going to be a blow to her self esteem. Hope she can swallow her pride and get the help she needs
Feel free to post pics of this Akerman person.
I wonder how they'll deal with LL's later accusations?
True. She has contended for years that what you see in Deep Throat is drug-induced rape. I remember news stories claiming her personal interviews got some places to pull the movie from the shelves.
Better to be dropped now than choking during filming.
BTW..what we should be asking her is that when Lohan does, which sadly will be soon, I fear, who will play HER in the biopic of her life..
I have never seen the movie she made, but I do remember an interview she gave during which she claimed she was at Hefner’s mansion when Sammy Davis Jr and his wife were also guests. Sammy wanted her to do her “magic” for him. She said she told Sammy’s wife that she was forced to do this against her will and begged her to intervene but received no help.
She also said if you looked closely at her legs in the film you could see bruises from beatings. She claied her husband/manage forced her to do the movies.
I thought she sounded believable. It seemed she tried to help others and turn her own life around after getting away from that man.
If you know anything about Sammy Davis Jr’s. wife at that time, she was of little interest or use in helping L.L. in that alleged incident.
Altovese Davis was a stumbling drunkard and drug addicted leech. She was selling SD’s personal effects from his house as he lay dying in his bed of throat cancer. She died last year a lonely, broke, confused and messed up shell of an individual. A total waste.
I watched the brain-numbing “Harold and Kumar” to see her flaunting her assets. YUMMY!
She also shows what she's made of in the Ben Stiller re-make of “The Heartbreak Kid.” I haven't seen “Watchmen” yet.
No I didn’t know that. I was stunned that one woman would not intervene to help another who was claiming abuse.
I couldn’t stand to watch Davis after that interview. Who unless he is mentally sick or evil wants to have sex with someone who doesn’t want to do it?
At that point in his life Sammy was heavy into coke and weed (thanks to Altovese) and he even dabbled in satan worship. He did clean himself up and offer apologies to all he had hurt. But Altovese was an absolute monster. She drove his three children out of his life and he never reconciled with them.
I’m not excusing the alleged incident with L.L. (as there can be no legitimate excuse for that type of behavior). Merely filling in the supporting facts that frame the reality of the event.
How sad that he died unreconciled to his children. I hope LL was still alive when he issued the apology and he meant it for her too.
