Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan is out of the planned Linda Lovelace biopic and it took the film less than a day to find her replacement.

Malin Akerman -- best known for her roles in "Watchmen" and "The Heartbreak Kid" -- will play the lead role in "Inferno" now that LiLo is no longer attached, this according to Deadline Hollywood.

As for the circumstances of Lindsay's departure ... sources close to Lindsay told us she quit, her rep called the decision "mutual," and other reports claim she was fired. You be the judge.

Good luck, Malin!

If they have a replacement already, the decision to fire her was made some time ago. If LL "quit," she would have announced it before now. She was definitely fired.

Lindsay Lohan is MUCH prettier and sexier than this new ho-bag. Lindsay could be a top earner if she keeps her nose clean

The speed at which they found a replacement is solid evidence they had been working on this for a while and LL did NOT QUIT.

Dina Lohan is trying to float this oh she quit nonsense. This woman lies like we all breathe. I am not sure she can recognize reality. I believe Dina has her own drug addiction.

Lindsay refused to meet Matthew Wilder over a week ago. He knew before that she had pulled out, thats why she refused to meet him, he was mad!

How long do you think it takes to find a replacement? all Wilder has to do is phone several agents, find an out of work actress, look at her experience and there you go! According to reports they are "still negioting" If this girl Malin wants to progress in acting, Inferno should be avoided.


Lindsay made the right decision by pulling out!

Guess it's a sign of the times that actresses would vie for the right to portray a porn star. Really sad commentary on movies and movie-goers.

Malin is beautiful and has a compelling personality that comes through. She's VERY interesting to watch. A great improvement to the movie. she's a bonafide actress, not a tabloid fixture.

Linda Lovelace was a big deal back in the day, a big star, at least she was big in the news, the zeitgeist of that day. A film of her life should be extremely compelling, an excellent portrayal of those times that she had a significant impact on. She was a trend breaking porn star and a film of her life is just that, not a porno. Of course they'll show about her making the ground-breaking famous films she did, but it's about her life and times. Get a clue, it's NOT a porno.

Inferno is a great movie! Ive seen it several times, and it is truly a cult/horror classic. Dario Agrento's Inferno that is!

My dream of watching Lindsay Lohan simulate dork-sucking on video will have to wait until her next direct-to-DVD movie.

Or at least until Samantha Ronson releases that sex tape.

Also don't forget Lindsay, the lesbo junkie alcoholic loser with no brains & no career is also a liar and that she's an open & notorious kleptomanic thief.
Now she's been told she is not good enough to give blooww joobss!
