Lindsay Lohan

'Watchmen'

11/21/2010 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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!

Malin Akerman? Not sure why she'd want to appear in this sleazebag movie, but she certainly is a better actress than former child actress Lindsay Lohan. Watchmen was great.

Lindsay WAS a teen star. She hasn't made a movie in a long time, and nothing has been bankable in years. Let's not kid ourselves, people that were going to watch because of Lindsay were only going to watch for possible nudity, and the sexual premise of the movie with lesbian Lindsay in it. Definitely not for her subpar acting skills. That's not hard to replace. This movie Inferno isn't made for main stream anyway. This is a movie that many will watch that have an interest in dark drama or Bio pictures. Whether Blohan is in it or not, people will still watch. For all the Lohan fans that say she never signed on in the first place, please explain why she was in trailer's for the movie, and also on movie posters. Sounds like she was on board to me.

Never heard of this person but she SERIOUSLY wants to do this movie ? when even Lindsay who has been in rehab FIVE times didn't sign the contract, wasn't happy with the script and decided to pull out.
Okay then....

This wouldn't have been the right roll for Lindsey. She doesn't look like a whore, whereas Malin has the right features needed to play the part.

Malin can take direction and keep her teeth out of the shot! Poor Lindsay was destroying the actors! Hence, she got fired!

Congrats to Malin! This should be a great role. The only real issue surrounding the real story about the controversial and tragic Linda Lovelace was relying on a former actress who hasn't been bankable (much less insurable) in many years. Glad to see the project can move forward now, without the drama that surrounds all things Lohan.

Malin is a far better actress than Lindsay. Well for one she can really act. Many actors have acted in what looks like to be a crap movie that turns out to be the hit of the year sleeper. This movie has what it takes to be just that.

The girl from Watchmen? The girl from Watchmen has actually been making movies while Lindsay Lohan has done ****....oh wait, I forgot Lindsay was in Machete and the Shamwow guy's movie.

Lindsay Lohan basically stars in TMZ...and that's it.

Malin Ackerman has been in at least 2 movies that grossed higher than Lindsay's ONE hit movie (way back in 2004)...by $20 million. She's a successful working actress, where as Lindsay doesn't do anything.

I find it so odd the way TMZ reports. The headline should actually be "Malin Ackerman replaces former actress".

Let's just say she quit before she got fired, like selling your stocks because of a tip off.

Let's face it, Lindsay's "acting career" has been over for years...

...these days it's "The Internet, starring Lindsay Lohan".

Artist of many things (according to her twitter).... yeah, right!

Lohan was never a good fit for the movie anyways. Linda Lovelace had sex with MEN. Oh wait, Sam Ronson does kind of look like a man, doesn't she?

Agreed with #15. Malin Akerman is actually a legitimate actress. Lindsay can't act.
