Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard Show the Calm Before the Storm in ‘Lovelace’ Image

Well, this is just dark. The first image for Developing Linda Lovelace Biopic # 1, Lovelace, has been released. Below, we see star Amanda Seyfried as Lovelace herself with Peter Sarsgaard, who portrays Lovelace’s physically and psychologically abusive husband Chuck Traynor. For those unfamiliar with Lovelace’s story, she rose to fame in the pornographic film industry with the 1972 X-rated movie Deep Throat, which her husband/manager Traynor forced her into doing.

Lovelace will also star Sharon Stone, Adam Brody, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth and Robert Patrick, and will be directed by Jeffrey Friedman and Robert Epstein.


The other Linda Lovelace biopic alluded to above is Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, directed by Matthew Wilder, and starring Malin Akerman, Matt Dillon, Paz de la Huerta, Sasha Grey, Adam Goldberg and Harold Perrineau.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
