Looks like Lindsay Lohan has decided to take a quick pit stop on her way to becoming a hardcore porn star: playing a hardcore porn star! Naturally. The AP says:

The 24-year-old actress will play Lovelace, who shot to fame with the landmark 1972 porno movie "Deep Throat," while Bill Pullman will portray Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner in the period drama, producer Wali Razaqi told The Los Angeles Times.

The film, called "Inferno," will be based on the events of Lovelace's life and will delve into the "difficult stuff she went through and overcame," Razaqi said.

"I would say it's probably one of the most challenging roles any actor could play — and not because of the sexual content, necessarily — but more because she was so battered and beat up emotionally, that I think it's gonna take everything Lindsay has to really be able to pull it off," he told the Times.

"Not that Lindsay's life is similar in any way — but she's been through a lot of ups and downs. A lot of times you're loved and then you're hated, and I think she can relate to those emotions and feelings."

No, no, of course Lindsay's life is not similar in any way to a porn star. Why would you even suggest that? She's just an young, attractive woman who once seemed destined to become a big-time actress then fell from grace into a world of drugs and alcohol, leaving her desperate to do whatever it takes to get back into the business--even [a movie about] porn. She's just someone who can relate to those ups and downs and times when you get paid to be naked.

(Thanks, Will.)
