Rather ironic that a Hunger Games actor should board Linda Lovelace biopic…

A while back I ran some script spoilers on “Lovelace”, the Andy Bellin biopic of cinema’s greatest throat-artiste. Amanda Seyfried (“Big Love”) plays Linda Lovelace, with Peter Sarsgaard (“An Education”) as awful hubby Chuck Traynor and Sharon Stone (“You know I don’t like to wear any underwear, don’t you, Nick?”) as the equally-nasty mumma.

Today Variety confirms Stone’s casting plus adds two more names, Wes Bentley (“The Hunger Games”) and Juno Temple (“Atonement”).

Stone will play Dorothy Boreman, Linda’s mother, while Temple will play Linda’s best friend. Bentley will play Lovelace’s second husband, Larry Marchiano.
