Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan is set to play Linda Lovelace, the porn star featured in 1972's infamous 'Deep Throat.' Although the news feels like just another talking point tossed on the gossip pile, LiLo's chum/photographer Tyler Shields is presenting the casting news as hard fact -- no matter how snugly it seems to fit into the never-ending LiLo narrative.

"Shields confirmed to us this weekend that the actress has indeed landed the gig," E! Online reports.

The film is an independent venture titled 'Inferno,' rumored (again, those dang rumors...) to be officially announced at Cannes Film Festival later this month.
