'Lovelace' trailer: Amanda Seyfried is a blossoming porn-star flower
In the whirlwind of a new trailer for Lovelace, Amanda Seyfried plays porn sensation Linda Lovelace — from her humble beginnings to her glamorous life as the star of Deep Throat and ending with her activist days when she spoke out against the industry that made her famous.
Peter Sarsgaard plays Chuck Traynor, Lovelace’s husband and abuser, the man who takes the good girl out of her sheltered home and shows her the world. After his turn in a similar role opposite Carey Mulligan in An Education, Sarsgaard is really starting to creep me out.
Check out the trailer for glimpses of Adam Brody in a mustache (as Harry Reems, Lovelace’s costar in Deep Throat, the film that changed the porn industry forever) and James Franco as Hugh Hefner.
The film also stars Sharon Stone as Seyfried’s mother and Hank Azaria as the director of the adult film. Lovelace, which premiered at Sundance in Jamuary and was quickly scooped up by a distributor, goes wide later this year.
