Matthew Wilder’s Inferno was the Linda Lovelace biopic we heard about first, but it seems like Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman‘s Lovelace is the one that’s moving full speed right now. Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard were cast as the titular porn star and her husband Chuck Traynor in early November, with Sharon Stone signing on to play Lovelace’s mother just a couple of weeks later. Then last month, Wes Bentley, Juno Temple, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, and James Franco all boarded the picture as well.
Now Demi Moore, Adam Brody, and Eric Roberts have become the latest to join the drama, which is based on Eric Danville‘s book The Complete Linda Lovelace. More details after the jump.

Update: A Third photo of Stallone has been added after the jump.
The unofficial-looking official blog for Sylvester Stallone‘s The Expendables has released the first photos from the film. The cropped photo above features Eric Roberts and Stone Cold Steve Austin flying through the air with a giant explosion in the background. Roberts commented on the day of shooting:
Today I was attacked by Jason Statham firing a machine gun from a dive-bombing fighter plane, nearly burned alive by napalm and had to leap into the freezing Bay of Mangaratiba to save my ass. And how was your day???
It looks like this might have been shot on the same dock that Stallone what photographed shooting last week. Check out the full photo after the jump. Also, after the jump, a photo of Sylvester Stallone as Barney Ross and Jason Statham as Lee Christmas.

Everyone was talking about Mickey Rourke‘s acceptance speech at the 2009 Independent Spirit Awards. And why wouldn’t they? It seems like every time he opens his mouth he becomes the show. At the beginning of the speech Rourke makes a plea for Hollywood to give Eric Roberts another chance. Apparently Mickey never saw the biggest grossing picture of last year, The Dark Knight or his run last year on Heroes.
Rourke challenges “a little blond dude” who parodied his character earlier in the night, and explains what he meant at the Golden Globes when he said that director Darren Aronofsky is “one tough son of a bitch”. He goes on to thank a bunch of Fox Searchlight employees, who he is unable to remember their name, and even calls one of them “the little one who I call gap-tooth”. He even talks about the scene where he is “banging a girl in the ass in the bathroom”. Check out the video after the jump.
I can’t wait to hear what he’ll say tonight if he actually wins the Oscar. And if it does happen, they better not “play him off” the stage.

WOW. Just when you thought Slyvester Stallone couldn’t pack more action heroes in his upcoming action film The Expendables, AICN breaks the news that Arnold Schwarzenegger has joined the cast. But before you get too excited, we must warn you that it’s only a cameo. Arnold is only filming one day, and he will be playing himself – California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. So don’t expect to see Arnold getting his hands dirty. Also, Eric Roberts has apparently replaced Ben Kingsley as CIA agent Monroe.
The cast now includes Mickey Rourke, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren, Forest Whitaker, Eric Roberts and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The film tells the story about an “expendable” team, hired to do jobs that no one else can or will. The team is sent to infiltrate a South American country to overthrow the ruthless dictator and liberate the country.
