Demi Moore is all set for a cameo as feminist activist Gloria Steinem in Lovelace. The movie also includes Adam Brody and Eric Roberts in its ensemble cast.
Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman are directing the indie drama, which stars Amanda Seyfried as Linda Boreman, who, as Linda Lovelace, became the world’s first erotic superstar due to the success of Deep Throat, Variety reported.
Peter Sarsgaard and Sharon Stone co-star alongside Juno Temple, Wes Bentley, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Romeo Brown and James Franco, who’s working out his schedule to accommodate a cameo as Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.
Steinem founded Ms. Magazine, which published the infamous article “The Real Linda Lovelace,” in which Steinem discussed Linda’s relationship with her abusive pornographer husband Chuck Traynor, whom she blamed for creating the myth that Linda “loved to be sexually used and humiliated.”
When Lovelace announced her first memoir “Ordeal,” Steinem and other supportive members of the feminist group Women Against Pornography joined her at the press conference.
Steinem later wrote the introduction for Lovelace’s 1986 memoir, Out of Bondage.
Brody will play Linda’s Deep Throat co-star Harry Reems, while Roberts will play Nat Laurendi, the lie detector expert who administered a polygraph test to Linda at the request of her publisher. Production on the Andy Bellin-scripted film is under way in Los Angeles, and the film is being made with the co-operation of Lovelace’s estate.
