Lindsay Lohan Loses Linda Lovelace Gig

Matthew Wilder has grown weary of waiting for Lindsay Lohan to get out of jail/rehab/more rehab. The director has recast the lead role of his Linda Lovelace biopic “Inferno.” Malin Akerman, perhaps best known for her role as Laurie Jupiter in “Watchmen,” will be taking Lilo’s place.

A rep for the actress tells TMZ it was a mutual decision, made so Lohan could focus on her recovery. Wilder, however, says she was fired. From the LA Times:

While saying that he’d “rather not pick the scab” of Lohan’s firing, Wilder said that finding someone to provide insurance for the troubled actress “was proving a really tough obstacle.”

“I really, devoutly wanted that to work out so badly, I really did,” he said. “I hung in for a long time — longer than most people would, I think. My respect for Lindsay’s talent is huge. But it ultimately was just not a doable thing.”

Probably for the best. Lohan has been whored out by her parents and by Hollywood since she was a child. We weren’t looking forward to watching her get whored out again — even in a fictional context.
