James Franco had no intention of being the sex king of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. But sometimes the universe gifts us a miracle.
So it has come to pass that the 34-year-old actor has arrived in town to promote no less than three sex-filled films. In "Lovelace," the dark story of the '70s-era porn star, he plays Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. "Kink" is a Franco-produced documentary about the world's largest producer of BDSM pornography. And then there's a co-directing effort called "Interior. Leather Bar.," a sexually charged riff on a 1980 film about gay cruising.
Has this all been part of Franco's plan, the next step in his always-keep-you-guessing, is-he-really-going-there-now career? Or is it just happenstance, the entertainment gods smiling down upon us? Franco, predictably thoughtful on the subject, can see it both ways.
Tap-outs and new partners are nothing new in the porn world, but it seems like Linda Lovelace is getting more than her fair share these days.
Following Demi Moore's hospitalization for having a freak out after trying Ashton's stash of whip-its exhaustion, the newly single actress has dropped out of Linda Lovelace biopic "Lovelace" as feminist icon Gloria Steinem.
Deadline reports that Sarah Jessica Parker will be taking over as Steinem in the movie, which stars Amanda Seyfried as the "Deep Throat" star. Parker joins an already impressive cast, including Sharon Stone, Wes Bentley, Peter Sarsgaard, and James Franco, as porn pioneer/smoking jacket enthusiast Hugh Hefner. Get More »
Chloe Sevigny is probably best known these days for her long run on the HBO polygamy drama "Big Love," but she's about to take a crack at another, very different examination of sexual roles in our society: The upcoming big screen biography of porn icon Linda Lovelace.
"Big Love?" Meet "Deep Throat." Get More »
After checking into a rehab facility for "exhaustion" Tuesday afternoon (following an incident in which she was rushed to the hospital on Monday night), Demi Moore has dropped out of the Linda Lovelace biopic "Lovelace." The 49-year-old stunner joined the cast only a few weeks ago, and was slated to play a supporting role as women's rights activist Gloria Steinem, who took a very public stance against pornography, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Though official word from Moore's camp claims the actress is seeking professional help for exhaustion, she is rumored to have a substance abuse problem. Paramedics responded to a 911 call at 10:45pm on Monday night and rushed to Moore's LA home, assessing her condition for a full thirty minutes before transferring her to a nearby hospital. Sounds like more than exhaustion to us, but hey—what do we know? Get More »
Demi Moore is preparing to fight for women's lib.
The "Striptease" star will be playing the role of Gloria Steinem in "Lovelace," one of at least two Linda Lovelace biopics currently in production, according to Variety. For the record, this is the one starring Amanda Seyfried as the "Deep Throat" porn star.
Gloria Steinem is a feminist, journalist, political activist and one of the most prominent leaders of the women's liberation movement in the 1960s and '70s. She founded Ms. magazine, which published the infamous article, "The Real Linda Lovelace," in which Steinem discussed Linda's relationship with her abusive pornographer husband, Chuck Traynor (to be played by Peter Sarsgaard).

Still riding high from getting his NYU professor fired the summer blockbuster "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," James Franco is in talks to make a cameo appearance as the one and only Hugh Hefner in "Lovelace."
The drama, based on Eric Danville's biography, "The Complete Linda Lovelace," follows Linda Boreman's transformation into porn star Linda Lovelace, her rise to fame that climaxed (hee hee) with her 1972 flick "Deep Throat," and her subsequent conversion into the feminist, anti-porn activist Linda Marchiano. Sounds pretty complete to us. Get More »
Fresh off her role as a… uh… promiscuous high-schooler in "Dirty Girl," Juno Temple has landed a part in the family film biopic "Lovelace," which tells the story of the star of the infamous "Deep Throat." In addition to Temple, Wes Bentley (yes, the brooding hottie from "American Beauty") joins the cast.
According to Cinema Blend, these two additions join an A-list cast, led by Amanda Seyfried as the titular Linda Lovelace. Sharon Stone will play her mother, and Peter Sarsgaard portrays Linda's sadistic, abusive first husband. Get More »
Amanda Seyfried may have a future in pornography.
The "In Time" beauty is in talks to play porn queen Linda Lovelace, star of the legendary "Deep Throat," in "Lovelace," according to Variety.
Peter Sarsgaard, last seen getting a big head over playing the villain in "Green Lantern," is also in talks to play Lovelace's pornographer husband, Chuck Traynor. Get More »
For over a century, it has been one of the world's most burning questions: If Abraham Lincoln fought his own clone, who would win?
Okay, so maybe we're overstating the importance of the question, but that isn't going to stop Hollywood from answering it. And next year's showdown between "Lincoln" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" is just one example of the many projects in the movie pipeline that are fighting with their own clones. Everyone from Snow White to Osama Bin Laden is racing to get to the theater before their evil twin gets there first.
So with that in mind, we thought we'd take a look at some of the films that may soon have you seeing double. Because in Hollywood, if an idea is good enough to film, it's good enough to copy. Get More »
James Franco is about to get busy. Really busy.
Despite the Oscar-favorite's already packed schedule (which now includes not only hosting the awards but attending, as a nominee, as well), he's considering taking on yet another project.
The "127 Hours" star is in talks to join "Lovelace," a film about the notorious '70s porn star Linda Lovelace—who made "Deep Throat" one of the most iconic (if you can call it that) porn movies in history.
