The question of who will replace Demi Moore in Lovelace has been answered. Sarah Jessica Parker has been named the official replacement and it has me asking the question, is she a good or bad choice?
Once Demi Moore pulled out of The Linda Lovelace biopic the search was on for a new Gloria Steinem. Immediately the names of a number of Hollywood’s hottest leading ladies were being tossed around as replacements for Moore, including my girl Mary-Louise Parker. Well as it turns out none of the ladies that were being talked about in the role got it. In what I think is a very surprising choice Sarah Jessica Parker will take on the role vacated b Demi.
Parker will join her former Sex and The City co-star Chris Noth along with Amanda Seyfried, who is actually playing Lovelace, James Franco who will take on the role of a young Hugh Hefner, Sharon Stone, Wes Bentley, Chloe Sevigny and Peter Sarsgaard. It is quite a crew that Parker is joining but I have to say I find her a rather odd choice for the role. Not only because I thought Moore would be perfect in it but also because I just don’t see Parker as the infamous activist and author. I could picture Demi as well as Mary-Louise in the role but Sarah Jessica, I am having a hard time believing her as Steinem.
I am huge fan of the woman who will forever be Carrie Bradshaw to me, I really am and I am seriously rooting for her to kick but in this film. I am simply saying that I find her a rather odd choice. I guess until I actually see her work though I won’t know if the decision to cast her was good or bad so now I stand by odd.
So what do you think about Sarah Jessica replacing Demi Moore in Lovelace?
