Anna Faris to star as porn legend from Deep Throat

Dateline Hollywood - MTV has reported that actress Anna Faris is in a rush to get a feature on Linda Lovelace in production, before the looming strike. For the handful of you that don't know, Lovelace is the gal behind the epic porn film Deep Throat.

As if Faris playing a porn star (an uber famous one at that) wasn't enough, she says: "It's a really deep, dark drama and it would be cool for me to do." The film is called Inferno, she's putting it together "alongside a first-time filmmaker," and she says that Matthew Wilder will direct it.

No other big names have been added to the cast, but Faris says that they are currently struggling to cast the role of Lovelace's manager and husband, Chuck Traynor.

After playing a woman whose clitoris is in her throat, and becoming world-famous, Lovelace became an anti-porn activist. But her life was a heck of a lot more than that role. In the biz, she was involved in bestiality and pretty hardcore sex, and she claimed that her first husband, Traynor, forced her into porn at gunpoint (similar to how he acted with second wife, porn star Marilyn Chambers)*.

With all this in mind, who would have ever guessed that Anna Faris would be the actress to take it on? Can you see her in the role?

1978 was when I had my first experience watching "adult films." "Debbie Does Dallas" at my uncle's house. Somehow he got his hands on a bootleg copy, while the movie was still in theaters. This was the early days of VCR tapes. Being kinda young and in a smoky room with adult relatives and friends, I was a bit nervous with my surroundings and watched in awe. After that first experience, I somehow managed to get around to seeing more with some of my friends, which included sneaking into the local porn theater in our neighborhood (Lake Ronkonkoma on Long Island). It became our ritual in our early teens to check out the "classic" adult flicks. "Deep Throat" was probably THE classic. It was the epitome of classic 70's porn films. It was not even just about the sex and nudity (though it was a step up from reading dad's Playboy magazines) it was about the "campiness", bad acting and the "wokka wokka" bass lines in the pseudo-funk/disco soundtracks.
Ohe yeah ... Traci Lords was very controversial then too, as we all know.
