Who’s Replacing Demi Moore In Linda Lovelace Biopic?

Poor Demi Moore. She’s certainly experiencing a string of bad luck as of late. First she finds out about Ashton’s cheating ways and files for divorce, then she experienced an alleged drug-induced collapse this week, and now this. The 49-year-old actress has reportedly been replaced on the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic, “Lovelace” due to the actress pulling out, citing exhaustion as the reason.

Moore was supposed to portray American feminist and journalist, Gloria Steinem in the flick starring Amanda Seyfried in the title role. Steinem infamously wrote about Linda’s abusive relationship with husband Chuck Traynor in Ms. Magazine, a publication she founded. The 77-year-old icon also wrote “Out of Bondage“, an introduction for Linda’s 1986 memoir. Curious to know who’s stepping into Gloria’s shoes instead of Moore? Keep reading to find out.

It’s none other than Sarah Jessica Parker herself. Early reports this week hinted that Mary Louise Parker was being courted to take on the role. Guess, the producers went with a different Parker instead. While SJP has consistently been miscast portraying youngish heroines in romantic comedies, most notably in “New Year’s Eve“, this role seems more in line with what Parker should be playing. Not only is she playing another writer, but I can visualize her as Steinem.

In addition to Seyfried, Sarah Jessica joins a long list of stars in “Lovelace“. Peter Sarsgaard, Juno Temple, Sharon Stone, Adam Brody, Wes Bentley, Hank Azaria and James Franco are among the notable stars staring in this porn biopic. Currently, filming is taking place in Los Angeles with Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman helming the project.

What do you think of this casting development? While I’ll miss Moore playing Steinem, I think Sarah J is the better choice. Hopefully, Demi finds the help that she needs and comes out of this dark moment, much bigger, badder and better than ever.
