Olivia Wilde says she is considering the role of adult-movie star Linda Lovelace in an upcoming biopic. The actress, currently starring in Jon Favreau's 'Cowboys & Aliens', has been offered the part in 'Lovelace', a movie by Oscar-winning co-directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman.
Speaking to E! Online at a Nylon magazine party in West Hollywood, Olivia revealed her enthusiasm for the role, saying, "It would be a tremendous honour.It's such a cool role. She was a fascinating woman-with where she came from to Deep Throat to then working with Gloria Steinem and Nora Ephron. It's really fascinating". Despite the comments, the actress is yet to sign on for the project, and added, "I'm being very careful about my next project since I'm now in a position where I can be really picky-thank God, finally". The film is separate from another Lovelace movie in the works, starring Malin Akerman, who replaced Lindsay Lohan in the lead role. It is understood that James Franco is being courted to appear alongside Wilde, possibly as Linda's abusive husband Chuck Trayno.
Meanwhile, the actress is rumoured to be starting work on 'The Only Living Boy in New York' - a drama about a college graduate whose life is upended by his father's mistress.
