The Shmooze can totally see Demi Moore as feminist Gloria Steinem. We may not be casting directors, but we can certainly see the resemblance in terms of hairstyle and bone structure.

Indeed, the soon-to-be ex-Mrs. Ashton Kutcher is set to play Steinem in an upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic, which will star Amanda Seyfried as the “Deep Throat” actress. It was the X-rated “Deep Throat,” released in 1972, that launched the modern adult film industry, which in turn put into motion a nationwide campaign against porn.

Seyfried reportedly got the starring role after plans to give it to the perpetually legally challenged Lindsay Lohan fell through. Joining Moore and Seyfried in the biopic will be Peter Sarsgaard, Hank Azaria, Sharon Stone, Chris Noth, Adam Brody, and Eric Roberts (as Lovelace’s “Deep Throat” co-star Harry Reems).

Rumor has it that James Franco will make an appearance as Hugh Hefner. The Shmooze can easily picture that, too.
